2015 Jeep Renegade is priced from £16,995 on-the-road in the UK

Article by Christian A., on December 15, 2014

Fiat Group Automobiles UK has disclosed the price range for the new Jeep Renegade that will be rolled out in the United Kingdom early 2015. Interested buyers could have their own Jeep Renegade for as low as £16,995 on-the-road (front-wheel drive 1.6-liter eTorq Evo 110hp Sport) and as high as £27,995 OTR (2.0-liter MJet 170hp 4WD Auto Low Trailhawk).

Fiat will offer a special ‘Opening Edition’ version of the Jeep Renegade at launch in Alpine White or Omaha Orange. Both have a black painted roof and a distinct interior as with 18-inch wheels. Only 200 units of Opening Edition will be made available.

The Renegade is the first Jeep model to be produced in Italy and the first vehicle from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to be jointly developed by Italian and US designers and engineers. To be sold in over 100 countries including the UK and the United States.

In the UK, the new Jeep Renegade can be availed in four different trim levels – Sport, Longitude, Limited and Trailhawk. Each of these trim levels is fitted with any of efficient turbo-diesel and petrol engines and is available in either four-wheel drive or front-wheel drive configurations.

The engines are paired with first-in-segment nine-speed automatic transmissions. Aside from having a Euro NCAP five-star safety rating, the new Renegade boasts of best-in-class interior space, outstanding on-road driving dynamics and dynamic off-road capabilities. Its advanced 4x4 systems feature category-exclusive rear axle disconnect that shift seamlessly between two- and four-wheel-drive, allowing drivers to save fuel when 4x4 capability isn’t required.

New Jeep Renegade features a style that includes round headlamps, signature seven-slot grille and trapezoidal wheel arches. Customers could opt for two open-air roof systems: a large electric sliding glass roof or the 'My Sky' removable panels. Interested buyers can start ordering their Jeep Renegades on Jan. 6, 2015.

While Wrangler did serve as the inspiration for the Jeep Renegade, it was not limited to the rugged body forms and the powerful stance. This new model also builds on the Wrangler’s aggressive proportions. In particular, its departure and approach angles are the best in its class, both of which have been design especially to deliver top notch capability.

Beginning with the front section, there is no doubt that the Renegade is indeed part of the Jeep range given that one can see the signature seven-slot grille. On the top portion, the large circular headlamps give it that standard Jeep appearance. Under the grille meanwhile is a two-piece front fascia that, in addition to being aerodynamically tuned, showcases a molded-in-color on the lower part and body-color on the upper region.

The rugged bodyside form has those trapezoidal wheel arches, short overhangs, and more importantly that sculptural blend of fluid shapes which are interrupted by strong chamfers. Since the Renegade takes the DNA of the Wrangler, it displays wide fender forms and beefy tires. It even has a raised belt line which brings to mind the icon’s half-doors. Giving the Renegade a more modern look is the daylight opening, which is optional and serves as an affirmation on the classic hardtop of the Wrangler.

On its sill, this new SUV has cladding which brings with it protection. Further, since the more painted body is visually painted on top of the wheel centers, it makes the vehicle look lighter. Serving as a connection of the side profile to the model’s rear section is the all-too familiar shield-shape of the brand. It also ties the backlight in the rear and the square Wrangler-like tail lamps having black accent surround.

As added detail, the tail lamps feature reveals a new “X: form design theme. This theme has been inspired by military equipment, particularly a gas can. This allows the new model to convey strength and it plays on the roots of the brand. Similar to the first Willys MB Jeep models, the same ones manufactured in 1941, this new version of the Renegade delivers open-air freedom with the choice of two open-air roof systems. The first is “My Sky,” a feature unique to this segment, with the second being the electric-power and large dual pane sliding glass roof.

In the UK, the new Jeep will be available in a full-range comprising four different trim levels – Sport, Longitude, Limited and Trailhawk – equipped with efficient turbo-diesel and petrol engines and available in four-wheel drive or front-wheel drive configurations.
