The upcoming 2015 Jeep Renegade broke cover just a few days ahead of this year’s Geneva auto show, and immediately caused a sensation. Here was a small, 4 cylinder Jeep that was closer in size and power to the original Willys Jeeps than anything had been in years- and just about everyone loves the thing.
In the days that followed, we learned that the 2015 Jeep Renegade would ride on a beefed-up version of the Fiat Panda / 500L AWD platform with sixteen possible engine and transmission combinations across Fiat/Jeep’s global markets, including a four different gasoline engines (at least two of which are shared with corporate cousin, the Dodge Dart) and a pair of Fiat-developed common rail diesel motors that the US won’t be getting, initially.
Still, what we love about the new mini Jeep isn’t the fuel economy (which is great), the ultra-low emissions engines (which are also great), or the bi-fuel capable fuel systems being installed in these things overseas (which, you know, are great- but would be better if they were available here). No, what we love is the chunky Panda chassis’ looks and the way the 2015 Jeep Renegade does a better impersonation of the classic Cherokee than the Jeep Cherokee does.
Don’t take my word for it, though- check out the 29 photo gallery of the new for 2015 Jeep Renegade for yourself, below. Let us know what you think, and see if you can spot all the hidden Jeep logos in the lights, windshields, defrosters, etc., etc. ad nauseam. Enjoy!
