Jeep’s upcoming Renegade small crossover is scheduled to arrive in U.S. showrooms late this year as a more rugged alternative to the Chevrolet Trax, Nissan Juke and Kia Soul.
Much of the information about the car has already been released, but a member of JeepRenegadeForum.com came across a part of the brand’s retail site that gives away paint color information. In total, the site shows 11 paint colors ranging from black and white to red and yellow. It isn’t clear if this is representative of the paint shades planned for North America.
Jeep already announced that the Renegade will be offered in this market with a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a 2.4-liter “TigerShark” naturally aspirated four banger. A six-speed manual transmission and nine-speed automatic will also be offered and depending on the package you pick, the Renegade will also boast real off-roading capability. Or at least that’s what Jeep is saying.
The nine-speed automatic is giving Jeep trouble in the Cherokee where it is offering customers a free tune-up to address complaints about especially harsh shifts.
