A global Jeep design for a rapidly growing global brand
From the start, Jeep designers knew the Renegade would need to deliver best-in-class off-road capability wîth city-sized proportions that exuded the brand's rugged style while at the same time enhancing versatility, maneuverability and style. Additionally designers were tasked to create an all-new SÚV that would symbolize the brand's renowned American design and ingenuity, as it would mark the Jeep brand's first entry into the small SÚV §egmènt in more than 100 markets around the globe. Last, Renegade had to offer the open-air freedom that dates back to its 1941 roots wîth the Willys MB Jeep.
The result is the all-new 2015 Renegade, a vehicle that builds on the Jeep Wrangler's powerful stance, and features fresh new styling wîth rugged body forms and aggressive proportions that enable best-in-class approach and departure angles purposely designed to deliver best-in-class off-road capability. And for §egmènt-exclusive panoramic views, two available My Sky open-air roof panel systems conveniently stow to provide passengers open-air freedom wîth ease.

The interior of the all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade has a distinctive form language which Jeep designers have titled 'Tek-Tonic.' This new design theme is defined by the intersections of soft and tactile forms wîth rugged and functional details.

Únique 'protective clamp fasteners,' anodized design accents and inspired colors are derived from extreme sports equipment, while the newly familiar 'X' shapes inspired by its roof and tail lamps add to Renegade's Tek-Tonic interior look. And to make sure all of the needed passenger gear fits, the Renegade is designed wîth an efficient and flexible interior package that includes a removable, reversible and height-adjustable cargo floor panel and fold-forward front-passenger seat.
My Sky: continuing Jeep open-air freedom since 1941
Keeping the tradition of the legendary 1941 Willys MB Jeep, the all-new 2015 Renegade offers open-air freedom wîth two available My Sky open-air roof systems.

With its fully independent suspension capable of up to 205 mm (8.1 inches) of wheel articulation and 220 mm (8.7 inches) of ground clearance (Trailhawk), Renegade raises the bar in the small SÚV §egmènt wîth best-in-class off-road capability.
