Following a year in which Jeep experienced incredible commercial success, reaching the objective of selling one million vehicles worldwide, Jeep returns to the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show to showcase a series of important product updates that represent another step forward in solidifying their status as the leading manufacturer of high performance SUV's.
At the centre of the Jeep stand is the latest addition to the Jeep family, the all-new Renegade – the first Jeep vehicle to be designed and manufactured in Italy.
The all-new Renegade will be making its debut at the Geneva International Motor Show. Its new 1.4-litre 170HP 4WD AT9 engine is the only petrol engine to sport a nine-speed automatic transmission. The newest model is designed for the customer that wants to experience Jeep's legendary off-road capability as well as good fuel efficiency and reducing their CO2 emissions.
The new state-of-the-art engine generates 170HP at 5,500rpm maximum power and 250Nm maximum torque at 2,500 rpm – creating a very fluid power delivery, allowing the Renegade to reach top speeds of up to 121mph whilst accelerating to 62mph in just 10.2 seconds. Despite all this power, the new engine produces very low CO2 emissions of up to 160g/km whilst the fuel economy figure of up to 61.4 MPG on the combined cycle is one of the best in its class.
The Renegade is available in four different versions, Sport, Longitude, Limited and Trailhawk – all of which featured at the Geneva International Motor Show. The addition of a new, more efficient engine should see the sales of this already popular model soar throughout 2015.
Also making its debut at the Geneva International Motor Show was the all-new special Jeep Wrangler Black Edition II series!
Available next summer, the series will be on offer with two different models – the Wrangler and the Wrangler Unlimited – and two different engine units: a 2.8-litre turbodiesel with 200HP and 460Nm of torque and the high powered 3.6-litre petrol V6 Pentastar engine with 284HP and 347Nm of torque. Both engines will be produced with an automatic 5 speed transmission system.
The Jeep Wrangler Black Edition II will be a celebration of how iconic this vehicle is, now synonymous with off-road driving. The Black Edition II is based on the stock Wrangler Sahara version and thanks to a host of stylistic features and specialist equipment Jeep has managed to 'Multiply' the personality of the Wrangler.
A raised bonnet gives the Black Edition II a more aggressive appearance and added side running boards provide added protection for driving in the most extreme conditions. 18-inch alloy wheels, a seven slit front grille and new headlight trim all add to the improved exterior design.
The exclusive customisation of the Wrangler Black Edition II continues on the interior. Its black leather seats, polished black inserts for the mouldings on the ventilation vent trim, and the heated leather seats complete the classy feel whilst the levels of technology and comfort provide the perfect hideaway from the elements.
The Geneva International Motor Show also gave the public a chance to get hands on with the new Uconnect infotainment system that is built in to every new Jeep Renegade model from June onwards. Available with both 5- and 6.5-inch touchscreen displays, the Uconnect system provides the user with the highest levels of in car technology. Users can browse the internet, locate local points of interest and use the satellite navigation system, now available with 3D maps. For the first time ever, Uconnect users will also be able to access Uconnect LIVE – a service that provides access to over 100,000 internet radio stations from all around the world.
