The Jeep Renegade is to get a new limited edition to celebrate the firm’s 75th anniversary along with the Cherokee.
There will be just 8,000 of these limited editions of the Renegade and Cherokee available with special editions of the Grand Cherokee and the Wrangler coming later this year.
Jeep says its new additions will have a higher level of standard kit, new styling details and exclusive branding; there will also be unique paint finishes and badging marking the 75th anniversary.
Jeep was ‘born’ in 1941
The Jeep was ‘born’ in 1941 and became synonymous with being World War II’s most famous utility vehicle and this led to decades of its enduring popularity which the new line-up of special anniversary vehicles acknowledges.
The new vehicles will have unique green colours to help distinguish them from other Jeeps and there are other great choices too and options which will help owners make their Jeep even more distinctive.
Jeep Renegade will also have low gloss bronze wheels
The Jeep Renegade will also have low gloss bronze wheels and will come with the choice of a 1.4 litre MultiAir turbo diesel engine producing 170bhp with a nine-speed automatic gearbox or the firm’s 2.0 litre MultiJet unit producing 140bhp which comes with the same automatic transmission or a six speed manual box.
Among the standard equipment for the Renegade is Jeep’s MySky sunroof which has removable panels, 18 inch wheels, roof rails and bronze coloured fog lamps. There’s also the choice of new special fabric seats in a variety of colours and stitching.
