Sorry, not really that similar in my opinion. Now had you compared the HX to the Trailhawk...

I was leaving it up to others to respond with their reactions, but I was merely comparing/contrasting Jeep and GM's design executions on 2 vehicles with similar goals. While they both look like they came out of Halo, they look quite different from each other. It's just interesting...

I wouldn't compare the 4-door TrailHawk with the HX either. The only similarities are with the huge fenders and the open-air rear compartment.

Not really any similarities, if any very subtle. I can say though that that HX design looks a lot better then H2 and H3. The HX looks like it would definitely out perform both of them as well with that shorter wheel base. But enough about Hummers....this is a jeep forum.

The Renegade concept is wild, but I can bet 30 years from now, if not sooner we'll be seeing jeeps on the road like this design.

Here it is



More here http://www.rockcrawler.com

"The advanced propulsion system in the Jeep Renegade concept starts with a 40-mile lithium-ion battery pack. A range extender – in Renegade’s case, a small-displacement (1.5-liter, 3-cylinder) BLUETEC diesel engine – allows for journeys beyond 40 miles. In fact, the Jeep Renegade concept boasts a 400-mile range. Renegade’s BLUETEC diesel engine generates an additional 115 horsepower when needed, while greatly reducing exhaust emissions when compared to standard gasoline engines. Renegade is capable of achieving an equivalent petroleum fuel economy of 110 miles per gallon, which is four-to-five times greater than an equivalent gasoline-only vehicle.
The all-new Jeep Renegade concept’s lightweight aluminum architecture and regen-braking system help to improve overall efficiency, while dual electric 200 kilowatt (268 horsepower) motors propel a very capable 4x4 system – complete with low range and locking differentials -- worthy of carrying the Jeep name."

Also has 32" tires.

Wow they actually have one built. It kinda looks like a lifted sports car on 32'' tires. Very cool though IMO.

Yes, as horrible as the Hummer looks, I would take it over the new "Jeep" thing that they have designed.

It's a Jeep Dune Buggy! They must have an abundance of "Rescue Green" paint!

The thing I like is that they are looking at this with electric motors in mind. And they are giving this an off-road focus as well.

The renegade looks cool, but it doesn't look like a Jeep, just a rugged sports car or dune buggy like someone mentioned. To be honest the Hx looks more like a traditional Jeep in the sense that it's hardtop convertible and has a higher rollbar than the renegade. (I hope that wasnt too blashphemous, lol)

Looks like something from 2050.

It looks OK.. but still has a way to go.

When I went to look at new Mustangs, the salesman said that the main competition they see for the convertible Mustang is the Wrangler. He said that very often, when people are tossing around the idea of buying something they can fold the top down or take off of, those are the top two choices. Now, this was before the Sky/Solstice and the JK, right after the current Mustang body-style came out.

In that light, I can see how Jeep would want a model to fill that gap. Aestheticly, this would appeal to both buyers, and the alternative fuel angle could appeal to the wierdo hippies that think they are saving the environment.

Also, it shouldn't surprise anyone that Hummer has brought out the HX finally. They said a year or two ago that they were looking to introduce a Wrangler-fighter.
