I think Jeep will sell a ton of them. Tiny thumbnail of the new "My Sky" sunroof (removable panels): http://www.jeeprenegadeforums.com/showthread.php?t=15

I'm not understanding the market segments that Jeep is filling with all of these crossovers. I guess if it sells, I don't really care, but look at what we have that is all pretty much the same: Compass, Patriot, Cherokee, Renegade. Yes, there are differences between each vehicle, but I don't see why those differences couldn't all be accomplished with one platform.

I guess the bean counting and marketing are beyond me?

Looks like someone took the front end off a jeep and put it on a Kia Soul

Agreed, and this kind of bloated, overlapping roster is one of the things that bit GM in its ***. I've been saying for a long time that Jeep's lineup would be dandy if it was: Compass/Renegade (something small and efficient), Patriot/Cherokee (my choice would be a beefed-up Patriot with the Cherokee name), Grand Cherokee (or call it Grand Wagoneer to avoid confusion with the Cherokee name), and the Wrangler. Four models with various trim levels to blend them all together and fit all the necessary niches.

Yes, this Renegade is an exercise in the same badge engineering which constituted every Pontiac and Saturn before their end.

I say kill the Patriot, Compass, and this Renegade, un-uglify the Cherokee while keeping all the options packages, and call it a wrap. But I guess that doesn't make money.

That thing looks pretty hilarious ... sort of like a Nissan Cube or Honda Element, but not as ugly as those. Hard to take CARS like that seriously, but look at all the goofs that buy Subarus; what the heck do I know about consumer demand.

All I have to say is, just because something 4wd, doesn't mean it's meant to go offroad.

And yes, I realize I'm saying this on JeepForum lol.

I don't even own a jeep anymore

If I am not mistaken isn't Jeep killing off the Compass and Patriot? That would fit right into the model line then. Smaller Renegade, small/mid size Cherokee, Mid-Large Grand. Then you have your more off road focused Wrangler.

At least those were the rumors that were floating prior to and after the KL launch (the replace of both Compass and Patriot).

Another update. Looks like we are not getting the diesel, and will not see the DCT. However it is possible we might get the manual with the base turbo model.

http://www.autoblog.com/2014/03/04/2...photos-geneva/

Interesting to note as I thought the Active Drive system will be on the car. However autoblog calls it Active Drive and Active Drive Low. Based on their description the TH version will get the AD Low without a rear locker but all the other terrain options like the KL.

My guess is they get ADI, ADII without the lift, and ADII with rock/hill modes but just gave them new names.

Of course were not getting a diesel. We're not in Europe, we don't get diesels in small cars.

I agree. I like the car, I just don't think it should be a jeep. A fiat "offroader" would be very cool IMO.
