Cars: 2015 Jeep Renegade

2:07 /

A pocket-sized Jeep to leave the Kia Soul in the mud.

If I cover the name, do you have any idea what this is? I'll bet not. It's a whole new idea for Jeep. They're moving in to the subcompact crossovers going after cars like Kia Soul, Nissan Juke. It's gonna be different for them with this, the 2015 Renegade. Now if you look at this and sneer and say oh, what a cute little urban vehicle, simmer down for a second. This is gonna be available in full-on-trail-rated version with a very advanced 4-wheel drive system. It can send 100 percent of power to any one wheel, but normally the rear end is gonna freewheel for fuel economy but kick back in instantaneously when you need 4-wheel drive on demand. The underpinnings are loosely based on the Fiat 500L. This vehicle is actually made in a plant in Melfi, Italy. It's just that 1.3 billion dollars bringing online. This is ***CUT DICTATION***
