KBB.com adds 2015 Jeep Renegade to ’10 Favorite New-for-2015 Cars’ list

Jeep Renegade


It’s nice to be wanted.

New cars come into the marketplace and onto people’s driveways year after year – it’s been that way since the beginning. Some enter with mounds of excitement, while others squeak in and go mostly unnoticed. Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com created a list of the ’10 Favorite New-for-2015 Cars’, and one to make the list was the highly-anticipated 2015 Jeep Renegade.

With Jeep being so iconic, a new release from the automaker warrants some heightened interest. The Renegade, however, is a departure for Jeep because it now enters the ever-growing small/subcompact SUV/Crossover segment, which is gaining popularity not only with city dwellers, but suburbanites as well.

With a low starting price point, it’s no doubt the 2015 Jeep Renegade will be a popular choice among new car buyers. Sitting on a unibody platform, the dynamic Renegade comes with an available 2.4L with 9-speed transmission and 1.4L Turbo, which is only available with manual. Either engine comes with FWD standard, however, a 4WD version is an option.

The 2015 Jeep Renegade has 4 trim levels – Sport, Latitude, Limited and Trailhawk – each with slightly different standard features. The basic features include USB input, power locks/windows and 16-in wheels. When going up the ladder, more inclusions become available like a 5-in Uconnect touch-screen infotainment system, rear views camera and fog lights.

Optional features include blind-spot monitoring and lane-departure warning, leather seats, navigation, 506-watt premium audio system with 9 speakers, My Sky removable roof system, dual-zone climate control and rear park-assist system.
