The automaker is reportedly planning to introduce a small crossover vehicle dubbed the "Renegade," which appears to come in trail-rated and more street-oriented versions and could be based on the Fiat 500L, a design from the new owner of Jeep's parent company
According to auto blog Jalopnik, this is Jeep’s upcoming small crossover, dubbed the Renegade. The blog claims to have gotten its hands on a small number of photos showing what looks like a trail-rated version of the new vehicle as well as a more prosaic version. Small crossovers have become one of the fastest growing segments in the auto industry. The new small Jeep may be based on the Fiat 500L platform though it may in fact be based on that company’s Panda 4×4. When Fiat took over Chrysler, Jeep’s parent company, these are the kinds of cross-brand products many envisioned. More details are likely to be revealed in the near future.
