Am I right in thinking that this is one of those designs, like the KL, that will wind up looking better in person and in certain colors than any picture could do it justice?

Milous and Marlon, thanks for the information and keep it coming (as you're able).
I fell in love with it the minute I saw the pre-production models covered in the body bag. I'm going to have a serious issue when my Liberty is paid off next year...

Screw it, I'm having a serious issue already!

Re: All-new 2015 Jeep BU

It doesn't really grab me, but I don't hate the look. From the photos I think the front end is the weakest angle for the styling, but I have that feeling about a lot of cars. I think the public will accept the look. It's not nearly as bad as the new Cherokee and I've seen a couple of those on the road. That said, it's yet another compact built on a front-drive car platform, and that seems to be a crowded market today.

Re: All-new 2015 Jeep BU

I think it looks badass! Jeep is doing a fantastic job of keeping the Jeep look. Even though right now it may not seem like the same timeless feel they're known for, I think it's new, refreshing, and will look good on the roads for a LONG time.

My wife has a 2012 Compass and we were watching a Cherokee commercial (a vehicle she DESPISED 2 months ago). She looks at me and says, "Will you buy me one of those??" We're a Jeep family, so I just love seeing any new twist they come up with! Also, I really want those Rubicon wheels on my WK!!!

Re: All-new 2015 Jeep BU

There is a whole bunch of new pictures here :

2015 Jeep Renegade First Look - Automotive.com

Quote :
Renegade models with the Trailhawk package will have Jeep Active Drive Low, which will give the Renegade a 20:1 crawl ratio in its transmission differential for serious low-speed off-road duty. Trailhawk models will also have 8.7 inches of ground clearance, skid plates, tow hooks, hill descent control, and 2,000 pounds of towing capability when properly equipped with the Tigershark engine.

And from Jalopnik :
More 2015 Jeep Renegade details are coming out, and all the best boxes are ticked: 4WD only, a diesel version for the US, and an open-air variant are going to be in Jeep dealer's catalogues by the end of this year.


4 LOW !!
DIESEL !!!

Re: All-new 2015 Jeep BU

That automotive.com article says only the gas engines for the US, no diesel. Guess we will find out in a day, but if I had to bet I'd say no diesel for the US...

Re: All-new 2015 Jeep BU

It makes a good first impression visually. Wife likes what's out thus far. As always, proof's in the test drive and sustained reliability. Keep up the good work Jeep.

Re: All-new 2015 Jeep BU

The new 2015 Jeep Renegade will be sold exclusively with four-wheel drive in the US along with the option of a diesel engine.

Jeep confirmed to Automotive News that the Renegade will be offered with both gas and diesel powerplants, both of which will be assembled in the US. The motors will also be built in Italy and Brazil, suggesting that all three markets will get the option of both powerplants
