Chrysler will unveil its 2015 Jeep Renegade at the 2014 New York International Auto Show on Wednesday, with a live stream beginning at 10:50 a.m. EDT.
The Auburn Hills, Mich., company hopes that the all-new Jeep Renegade -- the brand's first entry into the small sport utility vehicle market -- will appeal to younger drivers while offering technology and safety features that will attract a wider audience.
Mike Manley, Jeep president and CEO, said in a statement that the 2015 Jeep Renegade "expands the brand’s product portfolio and targets the rapidly expanding small SUV segment around the globe."
Edmunds said the new 2015 Jeep Renegade should win over drivers skeptical of its small size. In the U.S., the new Renegade will be offered with two four-cylinder engine options: a turbocharged 1.4 liter engine rated at 160 horsepower and a non-turbo 2.4 liter engine at 184 horsepower. The larger engine is equipped with a 9-speed automatic transmission while the smaller engine comes with a 6-speed manual transmission.
A spokesman for Chrysler said the U.S. is expected to receive its first Renegades near the end of 2014, followed by full inventories in early 2015.
