WATERVILLE, Maine, 04/01/2015 /SubmitPressRelease123/
The 2015 Jeep Renegade has only just begun to arrive at dealerships, but the all-new small SUV has already racked up a trio of accolades from Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com. Listed among the auto-research site’s 10 Best SUVs Under $25,000, 10 Best All-Wheel-Drive Vehicles Under $25,000 and 10 Favorite New-for-2015 Cars, the Renegade was praised for its modern-yet-classic styling, nimble on-road manners and impressive off-road capability that has become synonymous with the Jeep brand.
While the 2015 Jeep Renegade draws inspiration from the iconic Jeep Wrangler with its boxy silhouette, prominent circular headlights and seven-slot grille, the new model introduces fresh styling, including large, upright fender flares, sculpted body panels and a sleek rear spoiler on its roof. Like the Wrangler, the Renegade allows for open-air driving, but that experience is made possible by two available My Sky roof-panel systems. The responsive Renegade is also well suited for daily commutes, returning up to 31 mpg on the highway when equipped with front-wheel drive, a 180-horsepower 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder engine and a segment-first nine-speed automatic transmission.
“The Renegade features Jeep’s signature design cues and capability, but it will also appeal to buyers in a new, fast-growing segment because of its unique styling touches and excellent fuel efficiency,” said Scott Pinnette, general manager of Central Maine Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, a Jeep dealership in Waterville, Maine. “Also, while many of the small SUVs hitting the market are sport utility vehicles in name only, the Renegade has already proven to KBB.com and other automotive experts that it’s the real deal when it comes to off-roading.”
When outfitted with one of its two available 4×4 systems, the 2015 Jeep Renegade uses a rear axle disconnect system to shift efficiently between two- and four-wheel drive, while its Selec-Terrain technology lets drivers customize traction control with Auto, Snow, Sand and Mud settings. Buyers who upgrade to the Trail Rated Jeep Renegade Trailhawk will not only receive a Jeep Active Drive Low 4×4 system with a 20:1 crawl ratio, but also a boosted 8.7-inch ground clearance, greater approach and departure angles, red tow hooks and an extensive set of skid plates.
