Jeep Renegade Nameplate Returns

March 6, 2002

DaimlerChrysler launched the latest version of a classic nameplate at the Chicago Auto Show in February with the introduction of the Jeep Liberty Renegade model. Renegade was first presented in 1964 as a model of the Jeep Wagoneer. The new version adds an integrated light bar, fender flares, special wheels and tires, and unique paint schemes to the SUV. In the interior, a unique cloth-and-leather upholstery system is matched with brushed aluminum highlights. Renegade is powered by the 3.7L PowerTech V-6, with a choice of 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. Suspension is independent with coil springs in front, and a multi-link live axle with coil springs in the rear. Steering is by rack-and-pinion. Two- or four-wheel-drive versions are offered. An international version of the new model, to be called the Jeep Cherokee Renegade, will be launched in countries around the world in the 2003-model year. It will be offered with the V-6 and an automatic transmission, or an I-4 diesel with a manual transmission.
