The new 2015 Jeep Renegade was created for one simple mission: to bring in a new entry-level model that is different from the Patriot and Compass. It has been stated officially that the Renegade is not a replacement for the other current jeep models so fans of the current models have nothing to fear. The Jeep Renegade is expected to hit dealer showrooms by early next year at a base price below $20,000.

The design for the Renegade slightly resembles a more outgoing version of the Wrangler Unlimited; however Jeep designers made sure to not make it appear cartoonish. The black trim and grille gives the Renegade a bit more attitude, and the taillights are rectangular, with a large X in the center—resembling army jerry cans. With a palette selection of about ten colors, the Renegade will have as many color options as the Jeep Wrangler. The signature feature on the Renegade are the removable composite roof panels called “My SKY”, which can be described as a T-top rotated 90 degrees.

As for the Renegade’s powertrain, it comes with a few different options. The base unit borrows from the Dodge Dart’s four-cylinder engine, a turbocharged 1.4-liter with 160 horsepower. The base model comes with a six-speed manual transmission. Four-wheel drive is available on all Renegades. The Jeep Renegade is extremely fuel efficient at around 30 mpg on the highway.

The All New Eco-Friendly Ram 1500

imgres

The new Eco-vehicle phenomenon is finally starting to catch traction nationwide, and Ram pick-up trucks are leading the way in setting a whole new standard in fuel economy. Ram trucks are globally recognized for their horsepower and often used for hard work on construction sites and family farms. They continue to be extremely popular in the US. Until now, they have not been known for their fuel economy but the Dodge Ram 1500 has just raised the bar, with the help of its V6 Eco Diesel Engine.

The Ram truck was named Truck of the year by Motor Trend, in 2013 and 2014. This was the first time a truck has won back to back awards. Other contenders included the Ford F150, Toyota Tundra, the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado. So how is it that a truck, which technically hit the market in 2012, can out-perform a range of vehicles from 2014? The simplest answer would be that technological advances that have occurred in the last few years have made it possible to increase fuel efficiency and remain cost effective.

Motor Trend magazine conducted mpg tests and the results showed that the Ram 1500 pushes 19-27 miles per gallon depending on test circumstances (highway vs off road). These numbers are a welcome increase and offer the best fuel economy ever recorded for a pick-up. The new Dodge Ram 1500 is a fantastic choice for buyers who are looking for an environmentally friendly pick-up without compromising horsepower.

2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat SRT

After months of hiding, the new 2015 Challenger SRT along with its Hellcat engine are finally available to be admired by all. Already, Dodge President Tim Kuniskis has christened this 707hp powerhouse with the title “the ultimate performance muscle car.” Speed demons will definitely want to add this bad boy to their collection.

Plenty of time was spent in the wind tunnel developing the exterior of the Challenger SRT Hellcat and it shows. According to Chrysler, the re-engineered Challenger maximizes aerodynamic performance for both racing and spirited driving. The front of this vehicle has a new fascia design along with an all-new vertical-split on the grille; it provides an update to the ’71 look. The large power-bulge hood draws in cool air to help keep the engine cooled. The design was visually inspired from the first Viper coupe built in ’96. The Challenger Hellcat also has a larger front splitter to optimize down force which counterbalances lift. The rear valance was also redesigned to make the model look wider, lower, and more stable, while the taller rear spoiler unique to the SRT Hellcat features a SRT logo.

The all-new cockpit of the SRT Hellcat also draws inspiration from its ’71 predecessor. The newly designed instrument panel has a stamped bezel and a 7-inch information display screen in the center of the gauge cluster. Speedometer and tachometer gauges that flash a retro look flank the center screen.

There are plenty of features this monster has to boast about, but overall it is a remarkable product of engineering.  Starting at an MSRP of $59,995 and generating a whopping 707hp, this vehicle’s 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V8 engine is the most powerful ever built by Dodge. Be sure to keep an eye out for this star premiering on our lot in October 2014.

The All-New 2015 Jeep Renegade

          Chrysler is getting ready to roll-out the newest member of the Jeep family with the 2015 Jeep Renegade. This adventurous small SUV is built like a Jeep with Trail Rated 4×4 capability, Selec-Terrain system, and 17-inch aluminum wheels with aggressive tires. Don’t think that it is built for only rock crawling though, a 2.4L Tigershark engine paired with a class-exclusive nine-speed transmission will make everyday driving a breeze.

The 2015 Jeep Renegade

Retracted My Sky roof panel

           To match the stylish exterior, Jeep put several features and options into the 2015 Renegade. It has the perfect combination of technology, colors, and equipment. Not only do you get the Uconnect System, but also a personalized information display for the driver. One of the most impressive features has to be the My Sky open-air, dual panel roof. This system allows you to keep the roof closed or you can retract and even remove the roof completely. Plus, you can take the panels with you in a height adjustable rear cargo area. You won’t have to fight over shotgun with this vehicle as everyone gets a great view.

2015 Jeep Renegade Latitude

          The 2015 Jeep Renegade has seating for five while also giving a massive cargo area in the back. Jeep also utilized several genius storage spaces within the vehicle to make sure you had room for everything you need. This vehicle is still in pre-production but early reports speculate on a late 2014 / early 2015 release. You can also visit jeep.com and sign up for updates on the Renegade. We look forward to this SUV showing up at Fred Martin Superstore and you can watch for updates on when you can come test drive yours!
