Jeep has promised that it will launch a great little car, both for the city and for the great outdoors. This is how the 2015 Jeep Renegade has been born. It is a small crossover that is either available with front wheel drive and a small petrol engine that is perfect for the city or with four wheel drive and a bigger engine.
Release date is not definite but we do know it will be delivered before the end of this year and it will come with a base price of around $24.000 (the price hasn’t been announced just yet). These are only speculations but if Jeep wants to be competitive and to give this vehicle a chance on the market they will need to price it similarly.

As we have said, the smaller version is the Fiat Fire 1.4 liter turbocharged unit. It is capable of developing around 165 horsepower and as much as 180 lb-ft of torque. The bigger 2.4 liter engine is a naturally aspirated unit from Chrysler and is able to give the driver 185 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. These are basically the same engines as in the Dart. Both of them are plenty powerful for this car and both of them will give you at least 28 MPG on average which is quite good and can be a deal breaker for many potential buyers.
Here you have two options. You can take the 1.4 liter turbo engine and get the 6 speed manual that is pretty accurate and feels great while changing gears providing you much better control over entire vehicle. If you want to enjoy the journey and want to be more relaxed, than the 2.4 liter with its 9 speed automatic transmission is the choice to have. This one changes gears smoothly and is very fuel efficient as well. With large number of gears it will be possible to always choose the best one that will provide enough power yet to be efficient.
The 2015 Jeep Renegade will get an interior based on that of its bigger brother, the Cherokee. Because of this and the fact that the car has a premium price, we can expect it to get leather upholstery as standard as well as other commodities, like dual zone climate control, a premium quality audio system with Bluetooth and voice control as well as satellite navigation. In case that you need more space in trunk you will be able to fold rear seats and transport more stuff.
Specs Of 2015 Jeep Renegade
Because this is a brand new car, Jeep has been able to give it a character. It gets design details from all of the Jeep’s well known cars, such as the Grand Cherokee, the Wrangler and the Cherokee. The headlights have integrated Xenon lights for the low beam as well as LED running lights. There are two models, the Latitude which is a more city oriented car with front wheel drive and 17 inch alloy wheels and the Trailhawk, a more off-road oriented model with 17 inch black alloy wheels with all terrain tires and a tougher looking body-kit.
With the 2015 Jeep Renegade this car maker managed to offer great option, depending on what you want you will be able to choose better model for your needs. If you want car that is more off road oriented than combination of 2.4 liter engine and all-wheel drive is better choice but if you want better fuel economy and you will rarely go on off road excursions than the 1.4 liter turbocharged unit is better choice.
