Jeep® Brand at the 2015 Frankfurt International Motor Show

European preview of the new Jeep® Renegade and Jeep Cherokee ‘Night Eagle’ special editions Two show cars fitted with exclusive Mopar accessories: Wrangler Rubicon Sunriser and Cherokee KrawLer. Jeep brand’s sales continue its positive momentum.

‘Night Eagle’ special editions

Designed to enhance the bold design of Renegade and Cherokee, the new ‘Night Eagle’ special editions

will be based on the Longitude mid trim level, and will feature black styling cues which reassert their audacious, original personalities and unique flair for customisation.

The bold appearance of the Jeep Renegade Night Eagle accentuates its distinctive style. Merit for this goes to the satin-finished grey elements – such as the ‘Jeep’ badge on the front grille, the fog light frames, the roof bars and the dedicated badge – combined with exclusive 17″ black alloy rims. This special edition introduces a new matte paintwork named Volcano Sand, which complements the other four available colours: Carbon Black, Alpine White, Glacier Silver and Solar Yellow.

The Volcano Sand-liveried Renegade Night Eagle on show in Frankfurt sports a 2.0 diesel 140 HP combined with the 6 speed manual transmissions and Active Drive 4×4 system. On the inside, a leather steering wheel, exclusive fabric seats with electric lumbar adjustment on the driver’s seat, UConnect with 5″ screen, manual climate control system, 3.5″ TFT instrument panel, Cruise Control and rear parking sensors make for a highly comfortable and technological ambiance. Renegade Night Eagle can be specified with 2.0 Multijet (120 HP or 140 HP), 1.6 Multijet 120 HP or 1.4 MultiAir 140 HP engine depending on the market.

Jeep Cherokee Night Eagle has several audacious, dark design elements and many glossy black accents on the exterior which together convey a bolder, sportier look. These include the front ‘Jeep’ badge, the grille, the roof bars, 18″ alloy rims, the ‘4×4’ and ‘Cherokee’ badges and deep tint sunscreen glasses . The range of exteriors is completed by a dedicated badge and a palette of four body paint colours to choose from: Black, White, Billet Silver and Granite Crystal. On the inside, the comprehensive standard equipment available on this special edition includes Uconnect with 8.4″ screen and navigation system, nine speakers with subwoofer, leather steering wheel, two-zone climate control system, TFT instrument panel with 3.5″ display, electric tailgate and rear parking sensors.

Available on the Cherokee Night Eagle is the new 2.2-litre MultiJet II turbo diesel engine delivering 185 HP or 200 HP (depending on the market). Both are combined with the Active Drive I 4×4 system.

Sporting a Billet Silver paint finish and black interior, the Cherokee Night Eagle shown in Frankfurt fits a complete set of standard contents, such as special bi-xenon headlights, front and rear parking sensors, 8,4 Uconnect sat nav system, automatic headlamps and rain sensing wiper, leather seats and leather steering wheel, two zone climate control, power liftgate and power folding mirrors. It is powered by a 2.2 Multijet II 200 HP engine with nine-speed automatic transmission and 4×4 Jeep Active Drive I for securing excellent performance.

A limited number of Night Eagle special editions will be built and sales will start within this year.

Two show cars: Cherokee KrawLer and Wrangler Rubicon Sunriser

Based on the Trailhawk version, the Jeep Cherokee KrawLer show car was created to tackle the toughest driving conditions, as the name suggests by hinting at ‘rock crawlers’ that are designed to climb over the harshest off-road obstacles. ‘KL’ is the code identifying the Cherokee family.

The ride is raised for extreme off-road use. This is why the show car is fitted with special Mopar equipment that includes special suspensions, BF Goodrich KM2 255/80/17 off-road tyres, wider wings, skid plates and platforms under the doors.

Sporting a special, Matte Green body pays homage to the Jeep brand’s heritage and tradition with quartz grey interior and exterior details, the KrawLer show car is fitted with a powerful 3.2 V6 Pentastar 272 HP engine, automatic nine-speed transmission and ‘Jeep® Active Drive Lock’ four-wheel drive with low range and rear differential lock.

Many eyes will also be on the Wrangler Rubicon Sunriser show car at the IAA Frankfurt. The Sunriser features exclusive Matte Orange paintwork, hence its original name, in addition to a host of Mopar accessories specifically designed for this vehicle. The bumpers, with a double tow hook on the front, are specifically designed for off-roading. The off-road wings, the 4″ suspension lift kit and the half doors make the Sunriser even bolder and more suitable for extreme use. LED lights fitted between the pillar and windscreen complete the look. LED technology is also implemented for the daytime running lights and the rear light clusters. The interior is in black leather customised with matte fluorescent orange trim which matches the colour of the bodywork.

The extreme abilities of this Wrangler, which is powered by a 2.8 CRD engine combined with a five-speed automatic transmission, are further emphasized by an engine skid plate and beadlock wheels. The latter is an accessory which fixes the tyre bead to the rim to prevent unintended tyre removal, particularly when running with very low pressure and tackling tricky surfaces, like rocks, sand or mud.

On the stand a special ‘Moparized’ version of the Renegade Trailhawk will also be on display. This special Trailhawk has 17″ aluminium alloy rims, underbody skid plates, two rear tow hooks and exclusive black mirror caps cleverly contrasting with the Anvil livery. Inside, the customisation includes sporty pedals and Jeep design mats. All Mopar accessories are specifically designed to enhance the adventurous spirit of this version of the Renegade which is most suited to off-roading.

Jeep brand’s sales success continues

Jeep brand’s presence at the 2015 IAA coincides with the announcement of very positive sales results achieved over the past two years since the brand last visited the Frankfurt Show. Jeep was the brand with the highest growth rate in Europe in 2014 (source ACEA) with registrations increasing by over 42% in the EMEA region and by 70% in Europe (EU 28 + EFTA).

The same positive trend continued into the first half of 2015. Compared with the same period in 2014, Jeep sales increased by 174% in Europe totalling 45,000 cars sold.

The entire Jeep range on display in Frankfurt

The stand at the Frankfurt Motor Show this year expresses the dual nature of the Jeep brand. On one hand, there is its genuine, extreme off-road personality expressed by the use of natural materials, such as wood and stone. On the other, there is the brand’s high-tech, innovative attitude, most noticeable in the displays of the higher end models, which is asserted using steel and large LED walls.

In addition to the full Jeep line-up, also in display a selection of exclusive accessories and genuine Jeep spare parts made in collaboration with Mopar are showcased in a dedicated area of the stand. The display also features the complete Jeep official merchandising range, including articles dedicated to the Jeep® Owners Group (JOG), the only official club managed centrally by the brand, and which is already active in 17 countries across Europe with over 37,000 members in its ranks.

Finally, through brochures and dedicated material at the stand, visitors can learn more about the products of FCA Bank, a financing company specialised in the automotive sector. The company operates in the main European markets – and in Germany with FCA Bank Deutschland GmbH – with a sole mission: to support automotive sales for all FCA brands by offering innovative financial products complete with added-value services dedicated to the dealer network, private customers and companies.

One of the star cars on the Jeep stand is the Renegade, the first Jeep to be made in Italy. Over 135,000 have rolled out of the revamped FCA Melfi Plant to date and it is now sold in over 100 countries worldwide.

These important awards confirm the appreciation of the general public who are responding to its unique, distinctive style, its decisive off-road performance and its compact size. Since its launch, the model has quickly climbed the various national sales rankings in its category, becoming one of the top sellers in Italy, France and Austria. Renegade Limited is the most popular trim level with customers, accounting for 55% of all sales. This, added to the 10% share taken by the top-of-the-range Trailhawk indicates the success of the versions that contain more standard equipment. That is not all.

Not least, Jeep Cherokee has proudly obtained five Euro NCAP stars as a result of its many safety features.

Special mention goes to the brand-new 2.2 Multijet II engine, which made its first appearance on a FCA model on Cherokee. Made at the Pratola Serra plant in Italy, the new engine was recently launched in several European countries – Italy, Spain, Germany, the UK, France and Belgium -gaining appreciation among customers and propelling Cherokee to the top of its category for performance, fuel efficiency and off-road capabilities. Two power variants satisfy any requirements, offering a 200 HP and 185 HP, both with 440 Nm of peak torque, in combination with the innovative automatic nine-speed transmission with 4×4 Jeep Active Drive I or 4×4 Jeep Active Drive II with low range depending on the versions.
