The Jeep® brand is introducing in selected markets in Europe the Jeep Renegade Upland, the new all-wheel-drive special-edition model which will be expanding the line-up of the small SUV with the best off-road capabilities in its category.

The new special-edition model will be available at the Jeep showrooms in beginning from May, sporting a distinctive look enhanced by specific functional off-road features such as the front bumper of the off-road specialist Trailhawk model and underbody metal skid plates.

The new Renegade Upland is powered by the 2.0-liter Multijet II diesel engine delivering 140 horsepower in combination with the nine-speed automatic transmission and features all-wheel drive capability thanks to the exclusive Active Drive Low 4x4 system with final reduction ratio of 16.5:1.

Standard offering also includes the Selec-Terrain traction control system with four settings (Auto, Snow, Sand and Mud) to ensure optimum performance on any surface and the Hill Descent Control, that enables a smooth and controlled hill descent in rough or slippery terrain without the driver needing to touch the brake pedal.

In order to provide a sportier and more aggressive appeal to the Renegade, the Upland special-edition model sports gloss black accents on the 17-inch black alloy rims, front grille rings and Jeep badge, as also on the rear "4x4" and lateral "Renegade" badges. The exclusive “UPLAND” decal adorning both the driver's and passenger's side completes the specific exterior of the new special edition model.

The same sporty appeal is found in the cabin where anodized orange bezel accents on the speakers, the climate control vents, the gear shift and the cup holders of the central stack enhance the dark interior. Further interior features include black fabric seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel and all-weather floor mats with Jeep logo. A 3.5-inch instrument cluster display with TFT – the sophisticated thin film transistor technology for LCD displays that allows for more brighter and sharper images – offering a wide range of customization options, from a basic analog read-out to a central digital display that clearly communicates vehicle information with easy-to-understand icons, completes the interior of the new Upland special edition model.

Jeep Renegade Upland will be available with a choice of five exterior paints, including Alpine White, Omaha Orange, Carbon Black, Solid Black and Hyper Green.
