In order to deliver great off-road capability, Renegade offers two of the most advanced 4x4 systems in its class,. Both systems can provide up to 100 percent of the engine’s available torque to the ground through any wheel for optimal grip.

The trim levels will include entry-level Sport, Latitude, Limited and off-road Trailhawk.

The all-new interior features a rugged and energetic appearance, it includes precisely crafted detail, innovative and high-quality color and material appointments, the latest technology, and great storage features.

The Renegade is pricing has not been released yet, but officials said the company expects it to achieve more than 30 miles per gallon with competitive pricing. Chrysler has planned to do a staggered launch of the Renegade by starting in Europe during the fourth quarter.  After that the Renegade will come to the U.S. and other markets in 2015.
