Last September, Stellantis announced a partnership with (RED), named for the color of emergency, and which was founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver in 2006 to turn companies into a cavalry to fight the AIDS pandemic. Last year, (RED) announced it would be also raising money for the COVID pandemic and its devastating impact on the world’s most vulnerable communities, answering the need for a truly global response.
Among its 14 brand portfolio, Stellantis made special edition models using its FIAT, Ram, and Jeep® brands. Stellantis has said that the (RED)-branded vehicles would drive awareness to the (RED) campaign, in a multi-year partnership between the two identities. It has been said that the partnership will deliver a minimum of $4 million of the brand’s proceeds to fight global health emergencies, including AIDS and COVID-19, between 2021 and 2023.
The Jeep® brand kicked off its (RED) efforts with the introduction of the 2022 (Jeep)RED Compass. In March, Jeep announced that the lineup would expand to the Renegade. Orders opened up soon after and now those models are now reaching dealer showrooms.
The (Jeep)RED Renegade special-edition 4×4 model comes standard with a 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine mated to a segment-first nine-speed automatic transmission. The Jeep Active Drive full-time 4×4 automatic system delivers seamless operation in and out of four-wheel drive, at any speed with no driver intervention. Adding to the Renegade’s best-in-class off-road capability is the segment-exclusive disconnecting rear axle and Power Transfer Unit (PTU) to provide 4×4 models with enhanced fuel economy.
