The Geneva Motor Show started and everyone is excited to find out which vehicle models will be presented now. Jeep has already made its release, debuting a new Renegade crossover SUV.
As already expected, some of the most interesting releases of this year at the Geneva Motor Show are going to be SUV vehicles.
The 2015 all-new Renegade compact crossover SUV looks quite great.
“The all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade expands the brand’s portfolio and targets the rapidly expanding small SUV segment around the globe,” Jeep’s executive Mike Manley said in a statement.
The vehicle looks great, but the expectations are quite high. The new Jeep is the first to debut after the merger of Fiat SpA and Jeep parent Chrysler. The all-new Renegade crossover SUV will entirely be made in Italy, along with the 500 X, a petite Italian Fiat. This way, the Renegade will become the only Jeep to be produced outside America, until now.
It seems that the two vehicles are actually considered to be spectacular by the company, being said that they are perfect examples of what Fiat and Chrysler could have not done alone. The 500 x is expected to be a trendy Fiat city car.
The merger of Fiat and Chrysler was actually considered to be a must for the two companies to still remain competitive on a market on which they have rivals such as General Motors and Volkswagen.
The challenge for Fiat is now to create vehicles that customers are interested in buying and the release of the new Renegade crossover SUV might be a great idea, addressing to a segment of the market that is now booming.
The Renegade is just one of the 146 new car models that will debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The new models are expected to revive the automotive market, which has stagnated in the past 6 years.
The Renegade is expected to be available for purchase in the United States at the end of the year. European deliveries will start in September. Many of Jeep’s iconic styling elements can still be seen in the design of this new car. Pricing for the Renegade has not been announced at this point.
