2010 Liberty Renegade

Jeep Liberty Renegade

The “Renegade” name returns to the Jeep® lineup for 2010 (first quarter). First used in 1964 on the inside door opening of the Jeep Wagoneer, the Renegade has always represented the rebellious heart and soul of the Jeep brand.

Positioned between Liberty’s Sport and Limited models, the new Jeep Liberty Renegade expands the Jeep Liberty lineup, delivering renowned capability – highlighted by Jeep’s Selec-Trac® II full-time, shift-on-the-fly, active four-wheel-drive system – in a unique, premium and rugged new design.

Jeep Liberty Renegade is offered in a new, Renegade-exclusive Salsa Red Pearl Coat exterior, as well as Natural Green Pearl Coat, Deep Water Blue Pearl Coat, Bright Silver Metallic Clear Coat, Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl Coat and Stone White Clear Coat.

Standard Liberty Renegade exterior features include painted Mineral Gray Keystone 16-inch wheels that wear new, rugged all-terrain P235/70R16 outline white letter (OWL); dark neutral metallic wheel flares, lower side sills, front and rear fascia, body side moldings and rear license plate bar; black headlamp bezel; Argent Silver accent on the lower fascia appliqué and roof rack; Satin Black vinyl hood graphics; deep-tint glass; fog lamps; skid plates and tow hooks.

Inside, standard appointments include new premium cloth seats; leather-wrapped steering wheel, shift knob, instrument panel grab handle and park-brake boot; new driftwood accent bezels; leather-wrapped center console and soft-door armrests; premium Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC); cruise control; security alarm; rear cargo cover and steering-wheel-mounted radio controls.

Jeep Liberty Renegade’s standard Selec-Trac II active four-wheel-drive system offers customers the benefit of a fully electronic two-speed active transfer case and Brake-traction Control System (BTCS). It instantly anticipates wheel slip and redirects torque accordingly, which is ideal for off-roading or when driving in inclement weather.

This premium system offers a “4WD Auto” mode that is ideal for full-time driving. When in 4WD Auto mode, the system uses vehicle sensors to adjust and redirect torque between front and rear axles based on real-time driving conditions, providing the vehicle with responsive tractive performance.

For added capability when traversing steep grades, rough terrain or extremely poor traction surfaces, the transfer case includes a “4WD Low” mode. This second-speed gear multiplies engine torque 2.72 times and locks the clutch pack for maximum traction.

Electric shifting between 2WD, 4WD Auto and 4WD Low is accomplished with a console-mounted switch. A push-pin button is used to shift to Neutral mode.

A 3.7-liter V-6 engine is standard on all Jeep Liberty models, including the new Renegade. The 3.7-liter engine produces 210 horsepower (157 kW) @ 5,200 rpm and 235 lb.-ft. (319 N•m) of torque @ 4,000 rpm.

All Jeep Liberty models offer customers an “only-in-a-Jeep” open-air experience, courtesy of Jeep’s industry-exclusive Sky Slider™ full-length open-canvas roof.

Do you realy know what i think?

I think its cheap. It looks cheap anyway. It seems like more plastic was used then any metal. Looking at the interior (and the pics didnt even have to be great quality to tell) it's gonna feel like sitting in a car made by MATEL the toy maker.

It looks like a dodge Nitro and the interior appears to have cost approximately 27 cents to put together.

That's because it IS a Dodge Nitro.

It had better be more than a paint package, or I'd be angry.

They didn't even bother putting a lightbar, front aux lights, sliders, or a traction control device.

All of which have come from the factory before.

I guess their mentality was, "**** it, this thing cant even look at dirt before running out of ground clearance anyways."

Another pathetic attempt to wring some money out of the Jeep label.
The sooner Chrysler looses Jeep, the better!

I checked out the Renegade at the Auto Show today. It, like the other Jeep packages, is MUCH nicer in person then in the pictures. It'd be nice if it came with some nicer tires stock, but it's actually a very nice little vehicle.

It looks great, IMO. I really like the way the new liberty looks overall.

But to call it a renegade (which is supposed to be "rugged",) yet do nothing but add paint, is poo.

A 2010 with a light bar and fogs would look sweet.

I like the look of it, especially the blackout panel on the hood and the grey rims. But IMHO, this is how ALL the Liberties should be, not just some special do-nothing package. Ive got no problem with using the Renegade name on a Liberty, or any other Jeep for that matter but ONLY IF its also available on the Wrangler!!!! Back in the day, the Renegade was only on the CJs so I think Jeep should continue the tradition by at least including the Wrangler.

IMHO, Renegade package should be something that is a total stroke to the hardcore Jeep enthusiast. A bunch of stickers and doodads dont mean a damn thing if there's no substance to back it up. The Rubicon package on the Wrangler would be a good start. The Renegade could offer a similar appearance package to this, with lites, a blackout hood (paint, not a sticker) and most importantly it should up the ante with 8 cylinders. A unique wheel that looked like slot mags would be a good addition too, maybe even a recovery kit or something cool to go with it.

True it doesn't have the light bar but keep in mind it already has the fogs (lower lights inside headlight housings)

I hate to bump an old thread, but I am glad my Dodge Nitro Renegade photochop is still famously going around the interwebs.
