Jeep’s newest SUV might not seem conventional to the rough-and-tumble brand, but after spending a week behind its leather-wrapped wheel, the 2015 Renegade proved to be all the things that embody the Jeep persona. It’s small in size, is available with a manual transmission and 4WD, and comes packed with tons of personality and throwbacks to its heritage.

The Renegade is all new for 2015 and shares much of its greasy bits with the Fiat 500L. That includes everything from its architecture to its powertrain. Nevertheless, Chrysler engineers have somehow injected enough Jeep DNA into the Italian crossover, making it inherently different. Easter Eggs and specialty design cues make the Renegade one of the most unique vehicles on the market – not to mention a hit with the petrol heads and car nerds.

And popularity is what Jeep is striving for. The Renegade will be sold in more than 100 markets worldwide. To help broaden the appeal, engineers have included no less than six engine options and an unprecedented 16 powertrain combinations when 4WD and transmission choices are factored in. Sadly on two of those combinations are coming to the U.S. and are already familiar to FCA showrooms thanks to the Dodge Dart and Chrysler 200.
