The 2014 New York International Auto Show has come and gone, and with it, another incredibly successful Camp Jeep Auto Show season!

2014 marked the 10th anniversary of Camp Jeep at NYIAS, and as the program, track, and staff has evolved,  we have  drawn bigger crowds each year.

Although there are a handful of Camp Jeep auto shows that happen throughout the summer and fall, NYIAS is the unofficial end to the 2014 auto show season. We are very proud of our drivers and thankful to our clients George P. Johnson and the Chrysler LLC for trusting in our work.

In other NYIAS news, Jeep proudly announced their new B-segment SUV to the lineup, the 2015 Jeep Renegade. The Renegade will truly be a global vehicle, as Jeep is moving quickly into other parts of the world.

Some notable facts about the Renegade:

  • In the US, there are (2) 4 cylinder engine options – 2.4L Tiger Shark w/ 9-speed auto trans and a 1.4L MultiAir turbo with a 6-speed manual transmission
  • The Renegade is rumored to start at under $20,000
  • All Renegade models will achieve north of 30 mpg
  • There is a Trail-Rated Renegade Trailhawk, with extra ground clearance, aggressive tires, skid plates, and a full-time transfer case with Jeep Active Drive Low gearing (20:1 crawl ratio)

We definitely like the body styling and the available removable roof. While the hardcore, Wrangler wheelers will find things to criticize about the Renegade, the fact that there is a Trail-Rated Trailhawk version shows that Jeep is staying true to it’s roots. This vehicle will be a great seller for the brand (not to mention helping them to meet CAFE standards).

We are excited to put one through the paces and get a handle on its capabilities.
