'Renegade' Name Returns for All-New Jeep Liberty Model
The 'Renegade' name makes its comeback to the Jeep lineup for 2002, only now it will be worn by an all-new model of the Jeep Liberty. The Renegade name was first used in 1964 on the inside-door opening of the Jeep Wagoneer. The 2002 Jeep Liberty Renegade model made its debut at the 2002 Chicago Auto Show.
Jeep Liberty Renegade combines an integrated activity light bar, "bolted-on" wheel flares, removable side steps, unique wheels and a two-tone front fascia.
Jeep Liberty Renegade features the new 3.7L PowerTech V-6 as standard equipment. Available with either a manual or automatic transmission, this engine provides 210 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 235 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm. Renegade models will be available in both two- and four-wheel drive.
Jeep Liberty is being built at the Toledo (Ohio) North manufacturing facility.
