Sadly, the Pavlovian response for thrills of new sheet metal and inspiring new design wasn’t at the forefront of the 2014 New York International Auto Show.
That said; there were a few gems in and amongst the variety of manufacturers on display.
Here are some show hits I found to be notable at the 2014 New York International Auto Show.
It might be small, but this newcomer in the Jeep family is already carving a name out for itself, and it hasn’t even hit the streets.
The Renegade is an all-new compact SUV from the North American carmaker. Actually, it’s the brand’s first entry in the small sport-utility vehicle segment.
It’s zany in composition and quirky to look at, but by golly it’s kind of awesome.
You’ll get the choice of two fuel-efficient engines: either a 2.4L Tigershark engine with MultiAir paired to the segment’s first 9-speed automatic transmission or a 1.4L MultiAir Turbo engine with a 6-speed manual transmission.
What’s more, this capable off-road vehicle can come with up to 70 standard and available advanced safety and security features.
