Automaker Jeep is set to introduce two custom editions of its Renegade SUV at next month’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas. Mirroring two different environments and associated extreme sports, the vehicles underwent full customization inside and out to accommodate the various conditions presented. With help from its Mopar brand, the Jeep Renegade “Frostbite” received a ski/snowboard roof rack and rock rail guard to clear any obstacle on the mountain range. Mopar also added the carrier rack found on the Jeep Renegade "Ripetide," an ideal tool for surfers speeding down the coast in the search of that perfect wave. You find both on display at the Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep and Mopar's 15,000-square-foot exhibition hall at SEMA 2014.
Jeep® Renegade Frostbite The Jeep Renegade can be customized to suit any adventurous lifestyle, including those who feel the urge to hit the slopes when the first blast of wintry white stuff falls from the sky, as demonstrated by the Jeep Renegade Frostbite.
Reversing the color theme on the Jeep Renegade Riptide, the Frostbite is trimmed in white with blue accents on various exterior areas. Blue wheels with a white outline and a blue grille and mirror caps underline the overall color. The scheme continues inside the vehicle, with Katzkin pearl seats dressed in aqua blue. That same aqua blue hue also fills the perimeter around the doors, as well as the outline of the gearshift and vents.
Making the Jeep Renegade Frostbite a true ride for any winter wonderland is a Mopar ski/snowboard roof rack to help safely and securely transport cold-weather toys. The Frostbite also is equipped with a Jeep Performance Parts rock rail guard with stamped Jeep logo to defend against any rugged obstacles blocking the path to the ski lodge.
Adding additional visual elements, the Jeep Renegade Frostbite features unique hood and rear Jeep Performance Parts graphics, scheduled for future availability as Mopar accessories.
Jeep® Renegade Riptide The Jeep® Renegade Riptide calls out the customizable capabilities of the newest addition to the Jeep brand’s lineup, with a beach-vehicle reimagining of the most capable small SUV.
Colored in Vibrance Grandeur Blue paint embellished with a Light Blue base, the Renegade Riptide’s unique black painted wheels act as eye-catching contrast points. The Jeep Performance Parts logo, playfully tweaked to incorporate a surfer in action, is stamped on the rear body sides. Painted satin black accents adorn the front grille, mirror caps and select areas of the front fascia. Above, a surfboard rests on Mopar carrier racks.
The Vibrance Blue exterior also influences the Jeep Renegade Riptide interior. Blue trim enhances the instrument panels and side panels, and is set off with white accents throughout the interior, including on the Jeep logo area of the steering wheel. Front and rear seats and headrests will be dressed in black leather, while teak floor mats work to reinforce the “surf’s-up” motif.
