With 16 powertrain combinations, a huge host of features , and some rough terrain cleaves, the 2015 Jeep Renegade could be Chrysler's ticket over the scaffold between old Jeep fans and new ones, and spread their brand around the world.  Yes, you can arrange a manual. 

2015 Jeep Renegade Is A U.S-Bound 9-Speed Diesel 4WD Cute ,More 2015 Jeep Renegade points of interest are turning out, and all the best boxes are ticked: 4WD only,Designed in the US and implicit Italy, the Renegade speaks to a key segment of Chrysler's journey for world mastery. They're trusting the Renegade will get the Jeep brand into the hearts and consciousnesses of more markets the world over, and they could possibly succeed its a cracking little cute. the new Jeep Renegade has some exceptionally cool elements and offers something we haven't had in the US since the Suzuki Samurai; a minimized 4WD with an opening moonroof or sunroof that is not a Wrangler.                                                                                                               An all new and first-for-segment nine-speed automatic will probably be the most commonly ordered gearbox, but two manual and one dual-dry clutch transmission  will also see duty in Renegades.

Nine speeds sure sounds like a lot, but it will allow the gearbox to operate through a larger range of ratios than a CVT would. Jeep's engineers say it will also achieve better efficiency. Plus, I would speculate, better reliability.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Only two of the Renegade's potential four-cylinder engines will be available in the US. Neither is new and sadly, neither is diesel. The 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine from the 160 hp, 184 lb-ft of torque Fiat 500L will only ship with a 6-speed manual in 4x2 or 4x4 for the lower Sport and Latitude trim levels.

Renegade Limited will get the 2.4 Tigershark engine we've seen in the Chrysler 200 and Dodge Dart with 184 hp and 177 lb-ft, here paired with the nine-speed auto. The 2.4 is available in 4x2 or 4x4 as well, and the bigger four-banger is optional in Sport and Latitude trims.Renegade Trailhawk will only be available with the 2.4, nine-speed auto, and a low-range equipped 4x4 featuring a 20:1 crawl ratio and Jeep's terrain-response control they call "Selec-Terrain" which adjusts suspension, traction control, and shift points accordingly between five types of terrain.

Jeep has no plans to bring a diesel Renegade to the US, mate the three-pedal to the bigger engine, or make a manual shift Trailhawk. But the mounting points are all there; an ambitious individual could certainly get creative mixing-and-matching powertrain parts, warranty be damned.

The 4x4 system in all Renegades except the Trailhawk is Jeep's "Active Drive" with a fully-automatic power take-off unit that disconnects the rear axle to improve fuel efficiency when four wheel drive isn't needed. Jeep promises engagement is instantaneous. The range-topping "trail rated" Renegade is full-time 4WD. The factory specs regarding the Renegade's off-road abilities look promising. Some 8" of ground clearance is plenty for those spots where fire roads get washed out, and 19" of water fording should get you anywhere you'd want to be with a stock SUV.For those who aren't "off-roading" until their wheels are completely submerged in mud or their axles are perpendicular, go find a CJ-7.

Based on what Jeep has presented on paper, the 2015 Renegade looks plenty capable of leaving the bitumen, bringing passengers to interesting places, and rocking roads marked "4WD ONLY." For most people's daily driver, not being able to do the Rubicon is a small price to pay for better fuel efficiency and some modern conveniences.The 2015 Jeep Renegade is built from steel and composites that Jeep says underwent extensive computer-simulated impacts allowing them to fine-tune for "world-class" torsional stiffness.

The Renegade Trailhawk rides 20mm/0.8" higher than the other models, which have about 7.6" of total ground clearance, but Trailhawk's biggest off-road edge is that low-range crawler gear and Jeep's terrain-response system. The Trailhawk also has skid plates and red tow hooks... which I'm starting to sense are becoming the "red brake calipers" of the off-road world.

Towing limit for US spec Renegades is a powerless 2,000 pounds, and that is with a tow bundle on the 2.4. That gets you into light outdoors trailers, hobie felines, and nearby U-Hauls, yet you better leave the powerboat at home. Speed and mileage has not been guaranteed yet. However, for your seat wheeling joy, here are the Renegade Trailhawk's rough terrain related specs: 

Four-wheel autonomous suspension 

205 mm/8.1" of wheel enunciation 

220 mm/8.7" of ground freedom 

30.5º methodology edge 

25.7º degree breakover edge 

34.3º degree flight point 

480 mm/19" inches of water fording 

Koni recurrence specific damping (FSD) front strut and back safeguard framework 

Electric force directing joined with a driving guiding torque system that coordinates control fittingly as it distinguishes footing changes in turns. 

Jeep Active Drive Low (20:1 slither proportion) 

Selec-Terrain preprogramed footing control framework that changes movement focuses and footing control conduct taking into account territory data chose by client 

Slope better than average Control 

Slide plates, and red front and back tow snares 

17-creep off-road tires 

Up to 1,500 kg (3,300-lb.) towing ability with MultiJet II diesel motor and 907 kg (2,000-lb.) towing capacity with 2.4-liter Tigershark motor, with accessible tow package.Mopar has as of now got a rundown going of around a hundred sections and Jeep-embellished trinkets you can strap to your Renegade. Anticipate a wide range of racks, execution parts, et cetera. Concerning post-retail bolster, autonomous suspension will put a few constraints on great lifts however I'm certain there will be a lot of guards, sliders, and light bars in short request. A fully-electric steering system makes spinning the helm easier and modulates the power-assist curve based on driving conditions. Chrysler reckons this worth a 3% fuel economy improvement over a hydraulic power steering system. Plus, no power steering fluid leaks!

A completely new "direct steering torque  system actively controls oversteer, and is dialed in with the a fore mentioned electric power steering to automatically compensate for torque steer and inconveniences like the pull in crowned roads.

On top of that Jeep boasts "70 advanced safety features" in the 2015 Renegade; gadgets like collision warnings that activate brakes for you and lane-departure warnings that "assist the driver with corrective action" and steer you to safety. That's a lot of Orwellian robo-driving for a Jeep, but the road-going masses will probably be stoked and I can't wait to hear your thoughts on that in the comments.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Jeep Renegade exterior designer Jeremy Glover says "the theme of this car is about personality; playful, fun, exciting, energetic." Yes when he said "car" he meant "Jeep," but I think the rest of his assessment is accurate. It looks modern and video-game's while retaining some marquee heritage, thanks to that grille.

If the Jeep lineup was a family, Renegade would be Wrangler's little brother who likes to play in the rock gym but isn't quite tough enough to join big bro on a free-climbing trip.

I like it, even though it kinda looks like a Kia Soul. In fact, the Renegade's 101.2" wheelbase is the same as a Soul's, though the Jeep's body is 3.6" longer and it stands 3.5" taller. It's also slightly larger than another competitor; the Nissan Juke.  Inside the Renegade is a realm of "Tek-Tonic." That's not a dinosaur-themed cocktail, it's the codename Jeep has pinned on the design language of the Renegade interior. And let's hope Jeep cools it with all this "playful" stuff right about now.

What they mean with that silly name is the Renegade's interior is "defined by the intersections of soft and tactile forms with rugged and functional details." For example, the instrument panel is soft, the passenger grab-handle is hard. It's like a preschool up in there!

The air vent dominating the center console was inspired by sports googles. See it now? Yeah, kinda neat. Another rainbow colors is a topographical map of off-road mecca Moab, Utah molded into the rubberized tray behind the infotainment "media center," which features USB, aux inputs, and 12v power.

Chrysler's Uconnect infotainment system can be had in 5 or 6.5" touchscreen in the 2015 Jeep Renegade.18.5 cu.ft. of interior storage space expands to 50.8 cu.ft. with rear seats folded flat, but the whole world opens up with that "My Sky" removable sunroof affair up top. Panoramic sunroofs are among my favorite features to proliferate on the automotive scene in the last few years, and this elaboration with "removability" is downright glorious. The roof panels are made of honeycomb fiberglass polyurethane and stow neatly into the vehicle's cargo area, which is key. If only that bar didn't have to break up the glass in the middle, damn structural rigidity requirements.Available exterior colors on the 2015 Renegade will be red, tan, green, blue, silver, black, white, and grey with obnoxious names like "Commando" and "Omaha." You'll be able to order any of those with a black accented roof, which sounds cool.Interior colors are black, tan, black with red trim, or brown and grey. Or, in Jeepspeak:Leave no trail behind is the "Trespass Black" monotone interior that is accented with our Moroccan sun finishes. This interior has contrast dual tone stitch colors to set one on a new path
A little coarseness, a ton of grind is the "Sand Surfing" Black and Warm Sand two-tone inside mix. This blend is highlighted with Satin Chrome articulations and components an emblazoned fabric that furnishes proprietors with a visual textural ordeal 

Stake your ground is the "Trailhawk" Black monotone interior that features Ruby Red anodized , Ruby Red sewed complements and a special Trailhawk signature 

At the point when the sky isn't the cutoff is the "Free Falling" Bark Brown and Ski Gray two-tone inside blend with Orange points of interest. The inside is striking with its Anodized orange completions and the seats themselves will test the breaking points including another look,.MSRP begins around $17,000 to $17,995. 4WD will be a $2,000 choice, importance the Renegade could be your six-rate manual four-wheeler for under $20,000! The SUV is slated to go at a bargain in the US mid 2015, its now up for snatches in Europe.
