This was a sneak peak at the all-new 2015 Renegade, Jeep’s first small sport-utility vehicle. It has the awesome heritage style, and the Renegade will stay true to the adventurous lifestyle and 4X4 capability that Jeep is famous for.
The Renegade will deliver a unique combination of best-in-class off-road capability, open-air freedom and convenience. A segment first! The 2015 Renegade has emerged with the first nine-speed automatic transmission that contributes to outstanding on-road and off-road driving dynamics, two fuel-efficient engines, world-class refinement, and a host of innovative safety and advanced technology offerings.

The vehicle was preproduction so we were not able to drive but fortunate to experience the inside and out. I personally would be interested in this particular Jeep to tow my vintage trailer. Coming to dealers soon, pricing was not yet finalized.

Jeep, which is riding a wave of stronger sales and resurgence in popularity, is outpacing many of its rivals in two key sales metrics.
According a report from IHS Automotive that analyzed sales in the first three months of 2014, Jeep is not only winning over more buyers from other brands, but it’s also holding on to a higher percentage of its current buyer.
“What Jeep is doing when it comes to retaining their current customers and attracting new buyers is extraordinary,” said IHS Automotive’s Tom Libby. “Its loyalty rate is up 8.1 points to 43.6 percent compared to a year ago. That’s a very big jump for any auto brand.”
