2015 Jeep Renegade Hard Steel concept revealed
Jeep and Mopar will reveal the 2015 Jeep Renegade Hard Steel concept at the Geneva Motor Show next month, complete with matching trailer.
INTENDED TO SHOW OFF the “potential of a model that provide countless customisation options, while also providing an outlook for potential future Mopar accessories dedicated to the new Renegade,” the Renegade Hard Steel concept sadly won’t make it into production.
Based on the Renegade Trailhawk, the Hard Steel concept looks great thanks to its Brushed Steel bodywork, matte black colour contrast used for grille, roof bars, wing mirror covers, 16-inch alloy wheels, side rubbing strips, bonnet air vents, fenders and bumpers. The Renegade Hard Steel showcar adopts larger BF Goodrich All Terrain tyres, raised suspension, skid plate engraved with “Trailhawk” and bonnet performance.
That’s great, but how cool is the trailer which, in the official statement barely rates a mention. In the trailer there’s a touch-screen display shows all the features of the new Uconnect LIVE system, a service platform that allows access to Internet Music (Deezer), Internet Radio (TuneIn), News (Reuters), real time Traffic (Tom Tom LIVE) as well as Social Network (Facebook and Twitter). This multi-media technology will be available on Renegade models from June this year (depending on the market).
