The Jeep® brand reintroduced the “Jeepster” nameplate for the 2020 model year on the compact Jeep Renegade Sport. The special edition model paid homage to the original Jeepster which was produced from 1948 to 1950 and was developed to fill in a gap in the brand’s lineup left open from the passenger car segment. About 20,000 of the original Jeepster vehicles were made. Then in 1966, the brand introduced the C-101 Jeepster Commando, that vehicle held the Jeepster nameplate until 1972. Since then, two concepts have carried the Jeepster name, one a 1998 concept vehicle and one showcased at the annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari.
Despite the Jeep brand trying to simplify its lineup offerings for the 2021 model year, the Renegade Jeepster will return for the new model year. The Renegade Jeepster is based on the entry-level Renegade Sport model but adds a lot of creature comforts to the budget-friendly Renegade. The Jeepster package includes the following…
- 19-Inch x 7.5-Inch Granite Painted Aluminum Wheels
- 235/45R19 BSW All-Season Tires
- Gloss-Black Grille Rings
- Jeepster Door Decals
- 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
- Three Custom Colors (Late Availability)
The 2021 Jeep® Renegade Jeepster will return 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 will be available in both front-wheel-drive of four-wheel-drive (4×4) offerings.
The Jeepster package will add $1,895 USD to the sticker of your Renegade Sport. To find out more details on ordering on or 2020 models in current dealer inventories, you can contact your local Jeep dealer.
