2015 Jeep Renegade Front Profile

If you are in the market to buy a compact/mini SUV with some off-road ability and best-in-class 4×4 capability, you should take a look of all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade before you make your final decision. The small all-new SUV is made by Jeep and has two advanced 4×4 systems, best-in-class 4×4 capability, great safety features, removable dual-panel roof, and more.

In the past, the mini SUV sector offered some SUVs with great off-road capability, such as the Suzuki Jimmy, and the Chevrolet Tracker/Geo Tracker. Recently, this sector needs a small SUV offering great off-road capability. The all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade fills the void perfectly with its outstanding off-road capability and class-exclusive 4×4 systems.

First of all, the 2015 Jeep Renegade is a vehicle that is Trail Rated while offering Best-in-Class 4×4 capability. What does the Trail Rated badge mean for this small SUV? According to Jeep.com: “the Trail Rated badge represents a series of grueling tests that prove its off-road capability on some of the toughest trails on the planet. Jeep vehicles tested on these trails must meet standards for performance in maneuverability, ground clearance, articulation, traction and water fording before being awarded the Trail Rated® badge.“ To learn more about this, please read more from here.

Drivetrain, Engines & Transmissions

So far, we know it offers a choice of 4×2 or 4×4 configurations. The 1.4 L MultiAir I-4 Turbo engine with 6-speed manual transmission is standard on all models. Want more power? Try available 2.4L Tigershark I-4 engine with class-exclusive 9-speed automatic transmission.

Safety

As of press time, we know it offers a lot of great standard and advanced safety features. The 2015 Jeep Renegade is also sharing the FIAT 500L platform and will be competing with some current IIHS Top Safety Pick vehicles in its class. Since it is a new model coming out within the next year it offers an edge above the competition loaded with new safety features, meaning it has a strong chance to be picked as an IIHS Top Safety Pick for its class.

Price

There is currently no pricing information available on Jeep.com or Jeep.ca at this time. The price of this vehicle should not be higher than Jeep’s Wrangler and its competitors (Nissan Juke, Mini Countryman, Mini Paceman, Buick Encore). There is a chance that there may be several trim levels attached to the Renegade, which would give it a low base model price, and work its way up to a higher price for the fully-loaded model. This is also the case for Jeep’s Wrangler Sport vs. Wrangler Rubicon: if you compare Wrangler Sport and Rubicon, you can see they have a very big price gap.
