In just four short days, the Los Angeles Auto Show will open to the public, giving the public access to and information about new vehicle reveals and concept cars. Jeep fans, however, will have one unveiling in particular to look for, as the brand introduces two new limited edition models for the 2017 Jeep Renegade.

The Renegade already comes as one of the newest and most uniquely-styled vehicle in the Jeep lineup. The two new editions build on this by offering even more unique features.

The first model is the Renegade Altitude.

This vehicle follows the look already held across the Jeep lineup by other Altitude models with a distinct “blacked-out” look. On the outside, these features include 18-inch Gloss Black wheels and exterior accents, including blacked-out badges, grille rings, and tail lamp rings. Inside, the Renegade Altitude features a black interior, including black premium cloth seats, High Gloss Black finishes, and Metal Diamond accents throughout the cabin. The Altitude is based on the Renegade Latitude, so is available with a 2.4-liter Tigershark engine with MultiAir2 and a nine-speed automatic transmission or with a 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine with a six-speed manual transmission.

Second up is the Renegade Deserthawk.

This model takes the Renegade’s capabilities and optimizes them for the desert. The Deserthawk comes in a choice of Alpine White, Anvil, Black, or Mojave Sand exterior paint, with 17-inch painted black wheels, hood and rear body panel decals, rock rails, and the brand’s Trailer Tow Group package. Inside, the Deserthawk features black leather seats, Light Frost stitching and accents, all-weather floor mats, and a cargo tray mat. The Deserthawk takes the same Trail Rated 4×4 capability available in the Renegade Trailhawk, and is powered by a standard 2.4-liter Tigershark engine with MultiAir2 and a nine-speed automatic transmission.

The Renegade Altitude will arrive in dealers later this month starting at $22,390 MSRP, and the Deserthawk will arrive in showrooms in January starting at $28,140 MSRP.
