    The all new 2015 Jeep Renegade

    2015 jeep renegade The all new Jeep Renegade

    At first, I thought, ‘oh really another cute-ute’ and ‘this is going to be bad for Jeep’.
    learing more, I’m putting this little trucklette in the same category as other ‘boxes’, a.k.a. ‘Urban Utility Vehicles’, such as the Honda Element, Scion XB, Kia Soul, or Nissan Cube. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Each one of those has held its own with many many copies being produced. Points scored for Jeep!

    Then it turns out the Renegade should be just as capable as other Trail Rated Jeeps. The other four ‘Urban Utility Vehicles’ simply don’t offer trail running capability. More points scored for Jeep!
