It's not exactly orange though.
Special editions are a manufacturer's favorite trick to try and move stock of an aging model. You'll never see a special edition of a car launch when the underlying model is still freshly minted. Jeep is quite good at this, having created special edition Wranglers in no small number. There's also been a special edition of the Compass, and the Renegade hasn't been left untouched either. While there are plans to introduce a PHEV version of the Renegade, the regular soft-roader is still around, and now there's a new special edition out called the Orange Edition. Unsurprisingly, you can expect to see some orange accents on this Renegade.
The package is available on the mid-level Latitude trim and can be equipped to both front-wheel-drive and 4x4 models. So what's changed? Besides the most obvious cue of orange mirror caps, the special edition also features a decal on the hood, 19-inch wheels in black, gloss black badging with an orange outline, and a gloss black grille.
On the inside, the vents and door speaker grilles feature orange accents too, but not much else changes. Black fabric seats are included and the same seven-inch touchscreen infotainment display is standard with a navigation-equipped 8.4-inch upgrade available as an option.
In terms of exterior paint options, you can have the Orange Edition in Glacier Metallic, Granite Crystal, Alpine White, and Black. Alpine White is the only no-cost option though, with the others adding $425 to the final price. Speaking of pricing, this special version of the Renegade starts at $25,690 for the front-wheel-drive version and $27,190 for the four-wheel-drive model. Both prices are subject to the usual $1,495 destination charge. With some options like remote start, upgraded towing capacity, heated seats, and a heated steering wheel, the price will naturally climb a bit, and we expect to see most configurations at over $30,000.
