Hi guys,

Does anyone know if Renegade will be at LA auto show in November? or do you know how to find out?

I checked it out at the la auto show website but it was useless.

I live in central cali but planning to go to the show to see the renegade if it'll be there.

I went to the Orange County Auto Show in Anaheim a few weeks ago. A couple of websites said it the Renegade would be there but it was a no show. That said, I spoke with the ladies working the show, one seemed ligit as she had been at last May's Ontairo show where they showed the Renegade. She said "it should" be at the LA show. Now the Full line brochure they were handing out did in fact have the Renegade in it so it seems they were prepared for it to be there. Last week at the Seattle Auto Show I read the Renegade was there, so that gives me hope it will be at the LA Auto Show, as I will be going as well. Here is a photo of it at the Seattle Auto Show, I did read it was not open however:

Just keep an eye on the autoshow's website to see if they will mention it will be their, if not you can try calling the autoshow people to see if they have any information about it.

LA Auto Show has been really bad about updating their website. I've already emailed them last week, no reply.

Thanks guys.

Tom,

Please give me heads up (thru this post or PM) if/when you confirm that Renegade will be there. I'll do the same.

Well digging around today I find confirmation that the Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V and the Fiat 500X will all be at the LA Auto Show next week.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/cars/2014/10/31/los-angeles-auto-show-cadillac-ford/18206307/

So we have two choices, speculate the Renegade will be introduced along with it's 500X twin, or.

Speculate that lamebrain Jeep Renegade marketing is out to lunch in Europe.

Lamebrain, can I say that? Maybe I should choose a different synonym?

Antonyms
brain, genius
I really wish I could choose an antonym to describe Jeep Marketing, but so far as the U.S. goes that seems unlikely.

It will be there and it SHOULD be unlocked so visitors can check it out. This is the first big American show of the 2014-2015 show cycle. The facelifted Mazda CX-5 and new CX-3 will be there. The Renegade build and price tool is expected to go live in the US any day now, and this is Jeep's chance to tie that in with the LA show.

Hi Dhalgren, I like that answer, but, what is your source?

Scouring the internet I found some setup photos:
https://twitter.com/LAAutoShow/media

So the good news that looks like a Renegade under the cover, the bad news, it is on a rotating platform, which they may not let you on. HOPEFULLY there will be a second one on the floor, OPEN ???

More photos from the next couple of press days should tell...

Tom,

I hope I'm wrong but I don't think it's a Renegade under the cover. Judging by the slope of the windshield and the windows, it looks more like a Cherokee.

Dang, you guys got a better eye than I do. So the good news is the Renegade is not on the rotary table, so if it is there we have a better chance of actually sitting in it. Now back to the search box.

what a great look at what their setup looks like while they're in the process of setting it all up.

Well I found some info at usatoday.com, looks like one confirmed sighting of the SEMA Renegade Riptide. Hopefully it is open or they have some additional standard models on display as well?

Jeep will have its coming Renegade, the 500x's sibling, on display as well.

Small Jeep Renegade is surfer friendly and looks cool. Seems as it's taking forever to hit US, tho. #LAAutoShow

On closer observation, it looks like the covered Jeep on the rotary platform is the Trailhawk and there is also a Limited sitting on the floor.
