And they're all names that you should be familiar with.
The Jeep Renegade may be one of the brand's cutest offerings, but it's a decent soft-roader and an affordable way to get behind the wheel of a legendary brand. As part of that brand, it periodically gets special editions, which America loves. The most recent is the Orange edition, but the 2021 model is taking things further with new trim levels. How do we know? Well, the NHTSA has published a VIN decoder for the new model and the new trims are spelled out for us to see: Freedom, Jeepster, and Islander. We've seen the Jeepster before for the current model year, but 2020's version was a special edition too.
The Jeepster is a throwback to the classic Jeepster Commando and hopefully, in the new Renegade, it'll feature some old-school touches. Meanwhile, the Islander was a trim variant of the Wrangler and featured tropical styling meant to make you want to go to the beach. The Freedom is a trim we're very familiar with too, as this is the trim that celebrates the armed forces. As such, you can expect this model to boast embroidered flags, badges, and vinyl decals that remind you of the contributions of those who have served this country. Clearly, the new Renegade will not be short on options when it goes on sale.
Since it's a Jeep, these will likely not be the last of new versions of the Renegade to be offered, but with the brand taking a new direction in styling, it may be time to focus on redesigning the Renegade to keep pace with its latest offerings instead of coming up with new trim variants. Still, too much choice is never a bad thing, and with more and more people flocking to crossovers and SUVs, bolstering the marque's product offering with more variety is a sure way to keep the model fresh in the minds of the public.
