Re: All-new 2015 Jeep BU

The BU Renegade dimensions are within 1" of the 1997 - 2001 XJ Cherokee all around, with the Renegade being slightly wider. Similar looking smaller rear passenger door layout too. That's cool!

Thanks for the info. I dig this thing as well.
This is funny. I expected the same reaction when I showed my wife, but got the opposite reaction. She thought it was cute but, I will be ordering her a 2015 4x4 limited ecodiesel when they are available, so I can't say I blame her for turning down the cute-ute.

I'm like my wife, and a lot of the comments on here. I think it's kind a cute, and I like that jeep made a cute-ute that looks like it can go handle itself on a trail, but I look at it like I look at a Baja bug. They're fun and I like seeing them on the trail or even the road, but I'd never give up my wrangler for one.

Re: All-new 2015 Jeep Renegade BU

For me, there is much to like about the Renegade. I love the overall design and find the lines interesting. I like the whole "on the move, outdoor life style" they seem to be promoting. If they really release with classic Jeep colors like Solar Yellow (TJ) Anvil & Sahara Tan (JK) it should do really well in the market. Would make a great DD, tho my Prius C has that covered well ... The perfect anti-venom to my JKU with 37's.
In the end I want to see the biggest tires that will fit stock, or mild lift, tho I'm pretty sure it won't be lift friendly... If you can squeeze a set of BFG all terrains on their in a 31" flavor, it could make for a good mild desert rig.


Gotta love that Omaha Orange!

Re: All-new 2015 Jeep Renegade BU

Couple questions:

1. Is the My Sky roof fully mechanical or is it electronic in any way? The reason I ask, is it is advertised as being removable (both panels come off) OR retractable (front panel slides back over the back panel.

2. Any idea where this thing will MSRP at? One of the biggest shockers for me when the KL came out was how a fully loaded Trailhawk sits at $40,000. That just seemed wrong to me, regardless of how much equipment was stuffed into it (Thats JKU Rubicon or WK2 Trailhawk/Limited territory.)

I would expect the base model to be roughly around $16,000 with a fully loaded Trailhawk around $32,000, but I could be way off.

Any insight?

Hello,

1. I don't know, no good information enough here in Europe.

2. For the price, here is the configurator for Italy (first country for Renegade), No info here in Belgium

Re: All-new 2015 Jeep Renegade BU

I think it looks like those are two different options. You have the manually removable vinyl/fiberglass inserts that you can store in the back (for a fully open area), or the two separate electric sun roofs.

That's what I got out of it, at least haha.

Why does Renegade thread stop in September - is there another Renegade thread somewhere?

Re: All-new 2015 Jeep Renegade BU

Nobody is talking about it...the Renegade isn't available for purchase yet and it doesn't have the excitement surrounding its availability as does something like the next model year of Wrangler
