Renegade Hard Steel Jeep Concept Hauls Extra Booty to Geneva

Renegade trailer features Uconnect technology.

Jeep is showing off a Renegade with a trailer at this year’s Geneva motor show. Not only that, but this concept car explores a number of customization options that could arrive in the future as Mopar accessories.

On the outside, Jeep starts with a unique Brushed Steel paint job, complemented by a number of matte black accents. These blacked-out features appear on everything from the roof bar, 16-inch alloy wheels, side rubbing strips, fenders, bumpers, air vents, and mirror covers. The show car, which also has a unique Mopar grille, sits on all-terrain tires and features a raised suspension.

Peeking inside the gray-themed interior reveals unique lead-colored leather upholstery that is slightly worn yet soft to the touch. Also look for Brushed Steel accents on the AC vents, gear selector, glove compartment, and speakers. Headrests are embroidered with the label “Trailhawk,” since this concept is based on the off-road-ready Renegade Trailhawk.

But the biggest news comes in the form of the trailer, which apes the look of the Renegade’s rear end and acts as a Wi-Fi Internet hotspot. Jeep says this feature is an accessory that is dedicated to the Renegade. Inside the trailer, you’ll find a touch screen that allows access to music, radio, news, traffic, and social media through the Uconnect Live infotainment system.

The main appendage of the Renegade shown in Geneva will feature other technology upgrades, including speakers built through a collaboration between Jeep and music service Deezer. Meanwhile, Jeep is also using this model to debut its Renegade Playlist, featuring 25 songs that it says embody the spirit of the Renegade.
