Built alongside the Fiat 500X in Italy, the 2015 Jeep Renegade is the Fiat-Chrysler-owned automaker's smallest vehicle ever. So it may be underpinned by a modified platform of an architecture that was introduced 10 years ago by Fiat and GM-owned Opel, but the Jeep Renegade is one really tough cookie.
After it debuted at Geneva in March 2014 and production started in late August, the haters were proved wrong by the sky high demand for the little Jeep and the off-road capabilites of the Trailhawk. Because it is relatively fresh, the manufacturer wants to capitalize on the Renegade's strong appeal at the Detroit Auto Show, showcasing two Mopar-ized examples of the all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade.

“Customers can pull from our portfolio of Mopar products to augment the versatility and capability of the all-new Jeep Renegade, as shown with two Mopar-equipped Renegade vehicles." said Pietro Gorlier, president of Mopar.
Starting with the first culprit, the unique Commando Green hue of the Off-Road Mopar-equipped Jeep Renegade is highlighted on both sides by large side graphics that pick up on the neat X-shaped taillamps.

The graphics also play off the jerry can X design associated with first-gen military Jeep vehicles. In a nod to the Motor City roots of the NAIAS, a map of Detroit decorates the Mopar Topographical Hood decal. A concept skid plate, prototype rock rails, rear valance and production roof rails equip the small SUV as well.

As for the second car, dubbed Urban Mopar-equipped Renegade, this off-road ready bugger uses a selection of Jeep Authentic Accessories to elevate exterior appearance. In Mopar's own words, these accessories create "the perfect street vehicle for youthful city and suburban dwellers who also desire 4x4 capability."

Built from the Renegade Limited model, the show vehicle features Anvil paint that's set off with Omaha orange touches, including attention-grabbing orange pockets featured on the satin black wheels. Mirror caps, grille rings, tailllights surrounds and roof rails are also accented by the Omaha orange finish.
