In the Jeep world, everyone is talking about the new Jeep Renegade model. I must say there has been some mixed feelings from jeep fans towards this new Jeep model. Most people agree on the fact that Jeep Renegade is no-where near the classic Jeep’s line up. Whereas some people think that Jeep is trying to extend it’s reach by building not exactly Jeep look-a-like vehicles. The new Jeep renegade already has a nick name – “cute brute” and “baby Jeep”
Here is what Aaron Bragman the Chief of cars.com said about Jeep Renegade: “I think it’s fantastic. It’s exactly what the baby Jeep should be. To me, it is something we don’t have yet in this market. It is a really small, trucky-looking vehicle.”
Constructed in Italy but deigned in United States the new Jeep Renegade will be sold in more than 100 countries around the globe. An analysis made by Detroit Free Press expect in to be a real hit in China, Europe and South America.
The Renegade name should be familiar to enthusiasts because it’s been used to designate special trim levels for the CJ-5 and CJ-7 — predecessors to the Wrangler — and the Liberty. It also was the name of a concept vehicle shown at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show. The 2015 Renegade will mark the first time the name has been used as its own model name.
Mike Manley, president and CEO of the Jeep brand, expects sales of more than 800,000 worldwide this year, up from a record 731,000 in 2013.
“As this segment develops in the coming years, I think there is a very good chance it will be our top seller” internationally, Manley said.
“I have always said the Cherokee styling does not necessarily indicate where Jeep brand is going,” Manley said. “I think this is a classic Jeep. I think that is what we wanted to create in this segment.”
