Jeep is showcasing three new vehicles at the 2010 North American International Auto Show.
One is the 2010 Jeep Liberty Renegade, which boasts a new premium, rugged appearance with standard class-leading capability features.
Also being showcased are two unique limited-edition Jeep Wrangler models — the Jeep Wrangler Islander and the Jeep Wrangler Mountain — that deliver high-impact visual appeal with outdoor fun-and-freedom themes.
“While clearly appealing to our core customers, these three new Jeep models will attract new customers to the Jeep dealer showroom,” said Mike Manley, president and CEO, Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “The new Liberty Renegade delivers renowned Jeep capability and an array of standard features in a stunning new rugged, premium design, while both Wrangler models expand the iconic anchor of the Jeep brand with unique, limited-edition versions that consumers have told us they want.”
The “Renegade” name returns to the Jeep® line-up for 2010. First used in 1964 on the inside door opening of the Jeep Wagoneer, the Renegade has always represented the rebellious heart and soul of the Jeep brand. Positioned between Liberty’s Sport and Limited models, the new Jeep Liberty Renegade expands the Jeep Liberty lineup, delivering renowned capability, highlighted by Jeep’s Selec-Trac II full-time, shift-on-the-fly, active four-wheel-drive system, in a unique, premium and rugged new design.
The Islander returns to Jeep in a new Wrangler after more than 20 years.
The limited-edition Jeep Wrangler Islander is available on Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited 4×4 models. Based on the Wrangler Sport model, the Islander’s unique beach theme conveys open-air fun at first and every glance.
Further expanding the iconic Wrangler brand’s reach, Jeep delivers another high-impact, limited-edition model with the Jeep Wrangler Mountain edition.
The Jeep Wrangler Mountain edition is based on the Wrangler Sport S package and is available on Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited 4×4 models.
Exterior features include a unique Mountain decal on the hood with latitude and longitude coordinates that represent an actual location relating to the “Mountain” theme of the vehicle; painted high-gloss Mineral Gray 17-inch Moab wheels, grille and bumper appliques; tubular side steps; 32-inch tires; black tail lamp guards; and a fuel-filler door from Mopar.
Jeep was recently awarded 4X4 of the decade by Four Wheeler magazine.
The new Jeep Liberty Renegade and Jeep Wrangler Islander edition will be available in Jeep showrooms in the first quarter of 2010. The Jeep Wrangler Mountain edition will follow in the second quarter.
