Chrysler Group LLC is not planning any official press conferences for the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next week. However, Jeep plans to introduce three new packages, including  Liberty Renegade model, and two new trim versions of the Jeep Wrangler – the Islander and the Mountain.

All three claim to deliver classic Jeep design and capability along with high-impact visual appeal with outdoor fun-and-freedom themes, according to Chrysler officials.

“While clearly appealing to our core customers, these three new Jeep models will attract new customers to the Jeep dealer showroom,” said Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC.

“The new Liberty Renegade delivers renowned Jeep capability and an array of standard features in a stunning new rugged, premium design, while both Wrangler models expand the iconic anchor of the Jeep brand with unique, limited-edition versions that consumers have told us they want,” he said

First used in 1964 on the inside door opening of the Jeep Wagoneer, the Renegade represents the “heart and soul” of the Jeep brand. Positioned between Liberty’s Sport and Limited models, the new Jeep Liberty Renegade expands the Jeep Liberty lineup, delivering full-time, shift-on-the-fly, active four-wheel-drive system and a new design. A 3.7-liter V6 engine is standard on all Jeep Liberty models, including the new Renegade.
