Jeep revives the Renegade tag for its ageing Wrangler 4x4
29 July 2005

US-based 4x4 specialist Jeep has launched a limited edition run of the classic Wrangler off-roader, in an effort to ensure it continues to cut a dash on UK roads this summer.

Just 55 examples of the special model, badged 'Wrangler Renegade', will be produced, based on the 4.0-litre six-speed manual Sport. The £16,300 price tag (£200 over the standard car) adds 15in alloy wheels, seven-speaker CD audio system with subwoofer, ‘Wrangler Renegade’ badging, and the choice of black or light khaki exterior.

To supplement this, the regular Wrangler Sport can now be ordered in one of three striking new colours: Flame Red, Solar Yellow and Electric Lime Green.
