The Jeep Renegade might not be as classic as some of the other Jeep models out there, but what it lacks in age, it makes up for in special features. In fact, ever since the Jeep Renegade first came out in 2014, it’s proven one of the more popular Jeep models, so much so that people are still talking about it.
If you’re a Jeep-head, then you’ll have a special appreciation for the small things that Jeep likes to include in their models. Let’s take a look at the best Easter eggs to look for in the Jeep Renegade.
It Shows Its Italian Heritage
While the Renegade might be the quintessential American trailblazer, you might be surprised to learn that it’s actually made in Italy and has European roots. If you didn’t know this, then you’ll learn about it the first time you go to fill up your brand new Jeep.
You’ll be greeted by a spider – not a real one, don’t worry. However, to show off its Italian roots, Jeep has included an etching of a spider on the fuel-filler door, accompanied by the phrase ‘Ciao, baby!’ in a speech bubble. If you haven’t noticed this yet, go have a look to see if you can spot your new friend.
If it’s always been your dream to own a little bit of Italy, stretch your budget for the Jeep Renegade. Go online to see if you can pre-qualify for an auto loan to bridge the gap.
Moab Trails in the Cubby
You’re not officially a true Jeep-head until you take one out to run the trails in Moab, Utah. This special off-roading location in the states is one of the more popular ones to take a Jeep, so much so that the manufacturer is going to make sure that you don’t forget this.
Next time you go through the cubby to check for your loose change for that morning coffee, see if you can’t spot the map of the Moab trails etched subtly on the surface. Think of it as a great way to keep off-roading, even if the GPS isn’t working.
Grille in the Headlamps
Ever looked directly into the light? The light of your Jeep’s headlamps that is. If you’ve taken it for a test drive, there’s a good chance that you’ve inspected it pretty thoroughly, but even this might not have been enough to notice this particular easter egg.
The next time you’re near the front of the Jeep, without blinding yourself, take a look into the headlamps. You’ll notice a Jeep grille in the middle. This is an ode to WWII Jeeps that included gas cans.
More Gas Cans
If you’ve just taken the Renegade for a test drive, then there’s a good chance that you haven’t seen the roof. If you’re on a treasure hunt for more gas can symbols, get up onto the roof to see some markings in the shape of one.
The Jeep Renegade is still relatively new in Jeep years. However, there’s so much more to discover about them that it could take you a while to catch it all.
