I have made a habit of daily scanning Instagram for new pictures of the Jeep Renegade. Lately after the car became available in the USA I have noticed quite a few pictures of women proudly posing next to their new Renegade. In comparison there are very few pictures of American men and their new Renegade. This makes me think that the Renegade is a woman's car in the US. Or are the male buyers just not posting a picture of themselves and their new car on Intagram. What do you think?

I'm a (27 year old) man that proudly owns a Renegade. I don't constantly take a picture of myself with random objects in my life (food, new purchases, etc). I also don't have an instagram.

I think you're reading into more of the idiosyncrasies of young american women more than the general appeal and market response for a car.

yea im a 28 year old man and want a Renegade Trailhawk. Women take selfies with stuff, if a guy is going to put pics up of his car he ain't in em. It's just pics of a car. Of course that's not all guys but i would say the majority of them.

I think any male who is concerned with this has insecurity issues. I personally don't care what people think of my car. Until they write me checks and pay my bills, they have zero say.

I have a 2001 BMW M Roadster. 1 of 1600 made/sold in the USA (2001 and 2002 combined). 1 of 7 in Laguna Seca Blue/Black Napa interior. It has the award winning S54 engine from the E46 M3 but nearly 400 lbs less curb weight. In its day it was the quickest production BMW to-date. To the uneducated, it looks like a Z3, a "hair dresser's car". You can imagine their faces when they see how it goes from 0 to 60 in 4.5 seconds. Priceless.

Oh, and the men who use instagram to post pictures of themselves a lot? Let's just use the label "men" loosely.

I've seen a number of women driving Wranglers.

For the record, I ordered my Renegade back in early February and I can't wait to get it. I hope Jeep has a lot of success with the car, selling it to women and men alike. So there is no need to be concerned that I may have insecurity issues or would like Jeep to only sell cars to men. I merely made an observation, formulated a hypothesis and asked a question.

Selfies skew female

The project called Selfiecity, backed by the City University of New York, California Institute of Telecommunication and Information, and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is exploring the impact of the selfie on our society. Researchers looked at selfies shared on Instagram in five major international cities, Bangkok, Berlin, Moscow, New York and Sao Paulo, over six months.

While they found that women, on average, take more selfies than men, the situation reverses itself after age 40

I may not be "manly", but the Renegade is no doubt the most masculine of the current sculpted crossovers. The rugged SUV look for compacts died sometime back.
I meant to say, "IT (the Renegade) may not be "manly", but no doubt the most masculine compact crossover available (at least in the states)."

More women do seem to like my BU then men... Since they drive a majority of buying decisions that is a good thing for resale value
