You might remember that back in May, MoparInsiders broke the news that the “Jeepster” nameplate was returning to the Jeep® lineup in the form of a special edition Renegade model. Well, now the latest special edition Jeep is starting to arrive in dealer showrooms across the United States and several dealers are telling us that their orders have been placed in-transit status.
The model is based on the entry-level Jeep Renegade Sport and features the following equipment…
- 19-Inch x 7.5-Inch Granite Painted Aluminum Wheels
- 235/45R19 BSW All-Season Tires
- Gloss-Black Grille Rings
- Gloss-Black Badging
- Black Cloth Seating with Accent Color Stitching
- Metal Diamond Speaker Covers & Vent Bezels
- Uconnect® 4 with 7-Inch Touchscreen Display
- Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™
- Passive Entry/Remote Start
- Colorado Red
- Brilliant Blue
We have learned that the third specialty color is a new Brillant Blue and comes standard on the Jeepster. If you want to get either Colorado Red or Black, you will have to shell out an additional $245.
The 2020 Jeep® Renegade Jeepster comes with the 2.4-liter Tigershark® MultiAir® inline-four-cylinder engine paired to a 9-speed 948TE automatic transmission. The combination is good for 180 horsepower @ 6400 rpm and 175 lb-ft of torque @ 3900 rpm. The Jeepster is offered in both front-wheel-drive of four-wheel-drive (4×4) offerings.
One of the new Jeepster models is currently on the lot at Criswell Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM FIAT in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
The Jeepster package will add $1,895 USD to the sticker of your Renegade Sport. Ordering for the new Jeepster is now open. To find out more details on ordering one, you can contact your local Jeep dealer.
