Mopar Accessories Already Announced For 2015 Jeep Renegade


Hot on the heels of its debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Mopar announced a line of accessories for the 2015 Jeep Renegade. The official Chrysler Group aftermarket division will offer more than 100 parts worldwide to help customers personalize their pint-sized Jeeps, although it hasn't finalized what will be offered in specific regions. These accessories can be installed at the dealer or added to a car's order form, which allows owners to take delivery with everything pre-installed, and even listed on the window sticker.

Befitting a Jeep and its stereotypically-outdoorsy owner, Mopar will offer items like a tent and bike and canoe carriers, as well as unique 17- and 18-inch alloy wheels, and a graphics package. There are also some dress-up items for the interior, including a leather-wrapped shift knob and door-sill guards. On the more practical side, a "cargo management system" that consists of a modular rack mounted in the Renegade's cargo bay will be available.

There will be some performance parts as well, including a cold-air intake, cat-back exhaust and--proving that the Renegade is a different kind of Jeep--a lowering kit.

Based on the Fiat 500L's platform, the 2015 Renegade takes Jeep into subcompact territory. To ensure it still has proper Jeep capability, it will be offered with two 4x4 systems. The first, Active Drive, functions like the systems in most SUVs and crossovers, while a second Active Drive Low system features a 20:1 low-range mode for crawling. Both systems have Jeep's Selec-Terrain, which adjusts vehicle parameters for different driving conditions.

In North America, the Renegade will be offered with two engine choices. The standard engine is a 1.4-liter four cylinder with 168 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque; buyers can upgrade to a 2.4-liter turbocharged four with 184 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. Transmission choices include a six-speed manual and nine-speed automatic.

Look for the 2015 Jeep Renegade in showrooms this fall, along with its complement of Mopar accessories.
