The chief executive officer (Marchionne) spoke about the value of both Jeep and of Alfa Romeo to the automaker. Jeep will unveil a new b-segment model early this year, based on a Fiat platform, to be sold worldwide.

“It will not be called the Renegade,” he said. The new model’s name remains a corporate secret. The model is intended to expand Jeep’s reach into Western Europe as well as emerging markets such as China, including localized production.

Car makers always do this which doesn't surprise me at all.
Usually the first name you hear is the concept's name.
Hopefully they call it something more manly.

and with one swoop Marchionne knocked this forum right out of the ballpark!!!

If its not going to be called a Renegade I wonder what they possibly would call it.

Hmm well its below the Compass or Patriot. Both those names really have nothing to do with each other.. Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, Wrangler

yea there is nothing in common. I'm out of ideas.

So are we going to change the name of this forum when it gets changed?

I'm guessing that they will change the name of the forum once the real name is out there. I just wonder what it is going to be. Its not like there is a previous Jeep name that they can resurrect really. Companies rarely come up with all new name plates these days. Any ideas of what you /they can name it?

One name I came up with is the Capital. You know, cause Americans like Capitalism so much, and its funny cause its actually lower case.

The name Jeep Renegade is kind of strange.

All of their other models are Jeep ______

Renegade is more of a nickname really

There is a chance it could be Liberty since they revived the Cherokee.. Or they could intro it as an all new model all together.

why not just call it the jeep socialist..

America doesnt have capitalism, its mercantilism masquerading.

yea Renegade sounds a bit childish. Laredo sounds more like a common Jeep name (well it is a common jeep name)

Laredo is the entry level trim for Jeeps so it's just suitable that an entry-level jeep gets it, but it would be even better if they come up with a completely unique name

I like the idea of Laredo.

Like tony mentioned

Its a bit of Jeep as every entry level jeep trim is Laredo. And the Renegade is an entry level Jeep...

also thinking about it, if they name it Renegade, and have a Laredo trim, the two names together actually sound good to me. "Renegade Laredo"

i doubt they'd use the name twice. they might even come up with new names for the trims. or use some names that would be most approiate with it
