Læs mere om Jeep premiererne i Paris i den engelske pressemeddelelse her: New Grand Cherokee SRT Red Vapor special series The spotlight is trained on the first Jeep début to be presented in Paris: the new Red Vapor special series of the high-performance Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT version, the fastest and most powerful Jeep model to ever be made. It features an aggressive look, as demonstrated by the 20" five-spoke “Goliath” wheels with black chrome finish and the various glossy black badges (“SRT, “Jeep” and “Grand Cherokee”). Radar Red or shiny chrome details catch the eye and lay emphasis on the luxurious and aggressive mood of the new special series. Another peculiarity of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Red Vapor is the introduction of Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) technology that carries the classic sound of the powerful 6.4-litre HEMI® V8 engine (468 HP of power and 624 Nm of torque) into the cabin. Featuring Fuel Saver technology for reduced fuel consumption and emissions, the engine provides the SRT version with performance of absolute reference: 0-100 km/h in 5 seconds, top speed of 257 km/h, stopping distance from 100 to 0 km/h in just 35 metres. The public can admire another version next to the Red Vapor special series: a Summit version of the flagship Grand Cherokee distinguished by Granite Crystal livery, interior with new Dark Sienna leather, 250 HP 3-litre turbodiesel engine and nine-speed automatic transmission. New Wrangler Unlimited "X" special series Also showcased in the display area is the new Wrangler Unlimited "X" special series fitted out with 284 HP 3.6 petrol and 200 HP 2.8 turbodiesel engines, five-speed automatic transmission and 4WD. Featuring the new Firecracker Red livery, the new special series of the Jeep icon reveals that the desire for adventure can be transferred also into an urban environment. Indeed, the legendary off-road capabilities of the Wrangler range are hidden beneath a distinctive "outfit" comprising the body-colour modular hard top and exclusive style details like the glossy black inserts on the body-coloured grille, raised dual-intake engine bonnet and 18" Gloss Black alloy wheels. New Renegade Beside the two débuts unveiled in Paris, the stand will hold three models of the new Jeep Renegade, the first Fiat Chrysler Automobiles car to mark the brand's entry into the Small SUV segment. Standing out in the foreground is the exclusive "Opening Edition", a limited edition version that offers an advantageous price to content ratio to the first customers who order the car. Featuring Alpine White livery and black leather interiors, the car shown in Paris is equipped with the 120 HP 1.6 Multijet II turbodiesel engine and has the Uconnect™ navigation system and 6.5” screen with 3D maps, dual-zone automatic climate control, Passive entry with Keyless-Go, rear parking sensors, cruise control and 18" wheels with dedicated design. The Jeep Renegade Trailhawk is also on the catwalk in Paris. It is the ultimate in terms of off-road performance and appointments – ensured by the Jeep Active Drive Low full-time 4x4 system, flaunts Detonator Yellow exteriors with black leather interiors and is powered by the efficient 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine producing 170 hp, matched with the nine-speed automatic transmission. Sitting beside it is a 140 hp 2.0 Multijet II Limited version with a few accessories of the new Mopar collection, such as the "US Army" star on the bonnet and side doors, elegant glossy black grille and mirror fairings, roof bars, "Renegade Style" light bar and expandable roof box. The outfit will be completed by black premium carpet mats, sill plate with the Jeep logo, tubular side steps and valve caps with the Jeep logo. Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon “Stealth” show car Another 'Moparized' car is on display at the Paris Motor Show, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon "Stealth" equipped with the 200 hp 2.8-litre turbo diesel and fitted out with original Mopar accessories. It is an example of extreme technical modification for the toughest off-road use and striking looks in which no detail is overlooked: from the Performance bonnet with air vents and black mesh grille to the brand-new LED light bar. Moreover, a pair of off-road bumpers (Rubicon X design) replace the original ones and, together with flat wings, rock rails, raised ride kit and 37-inch tyres, make the Rubicon Stealth a truly unstoppable Jeep off-roader. The mirror caps and the fuel tank cap sporting the Jeep logo, the half doors and the 17” rims are further customisation touches that enthusiasts of the brand will surely appreciate. Last but not least, style details jointly created by Jeep, Mopar and the Centro Stile Fiat Chrysler Automobiles complete the show car, making it absolutely unique. The external livery features an Iron Peltrox Iron textured paint while the exclusive interior includes vintage-style leather seats and upholstery. New Cherokee Two models of the Jeep Cherokee are also taking to the French catwalk (three on the days open to the public). The new generation of the Jeep brand’s Mid-size SUV offers an innovative design marked by flowing, sleek lines, the on-road driving characteristics and handling of a higher class, legendary 4×4 capabilities, interiors crafted with fine workmanship, advanced technological content, new levels of efficiency, on-board entertainment and comfort and 'five-star' occupant safety and protection systems that make it the "safest SUV" in its category according to Euro NCAP. The public can admire a Trailhawk version fitted with the powerful 272 hp 3.2-litre petrol V6 Pentastar paired to the new nine-speed automatic transmission. Featuring a Mango Tango livery and black interior, the car carries an original Mopar accessory to be marketed soon to its debut: the 'Map Hood Decal' for the bonnet, a huge sticker that can depict a map of any city the customer chooses. The second Jeep Cherokee is a Limited version with the 2.0-litre Multijet II turbo diesel engine delivery 170 hp of power, matched up with the new nine-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive. The Jeep Cherokee has three different drive systems - Jeep® Active Drive I, Jeep® Active Drive II and Jeep® Active Drive Lock systems - that ensure benchmark off-road capabilities under all driving conditions. The Jeep Cherokee is also the first vehicle to feature rear-axle disconnect, resulting in reduced energy loss when 4×4 capability isn't needed and ensuring improved fuel efficiency. Jeep Stand To celebrate its commercial success and present the entire Jeep range, the brand has decided to appear at the Paris Motor Show with a stand that makes a strong visual impact. Designed with an essential structure, it expresses the brand's balance and solidity without forgoing its distinctive elegance. In detail, the wide surfaces covered with finely worked natural materials, such as wood and stone, express the perfect combination of outdoor landscape and urban environment, and at the same time give the exhibition space a sophisticated look as also the parquet floor exhibition platforms stress. The technological and innovative soul of the brand is emphasised with large LED wall areas placed on the background panel, on which films on the models of the range and the brand will be screened. A dedicated section of the stand will also offer the possibility to get a close-up look at the exclusive Jeep accessories and original spare parts made in collaboration with Mopar®, the brand of reference for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles services, Customer Care, original spare parts and accessories. Finally, Paris Motor Show visitors will be introduced to the products of FGA Capital, a finance company specialising in the automotive sector, by supplying targeted advice and distributing illustrative materials. The company is active in all the major European markets - in France with FC France and FL Auto - with the single goal of supporting the sales of all Fiat Chrysler Automobiles brands by offering innovative financial products with high-added-value services, targeted at the dealership network as well as private customers and companies. Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT: début of the new Red Vapor limited edition Making its début in Paris for the EMEA Region is the new Red Vapor special series of the high-performance Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT version, the fastest and most powerful Jeep model to ever be made. Featuring a distinctive and aggressive look, the new car presents the unprecedented Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) technology that further enhances the comfort and driving satisfaction of the SRT on an easy daily trip or when tackling a more energetic outing over your favourite trail. Exterior Catching attention on the exterior are the 20" five-spoke "Goliath" wheels with "Monkey" design and specific "Black Vapor" black chrome finish, while the lower grille and inserts of the upper grille, plus the "SRT" badge on the tailgate, the "Grand Cherokee" badge on the side panels and "Jeep" badge on the bonnet and rear grille are glossy black. In detail, the special series sports the classic seven-slot grille with black bumper insert of the SRT version, paired with the narrow bi-xenon adaptive headlights surrounded by the characteristic LED light. The headlights feature an exclusive black background that sets the SRT apart from the other Jeep Grand Cherokee models and at the same time stresses its distinctive look. The treatment of the front light cluster of the Grand Cherokee SRT is seen in the rear, and it gives the car a styling consistent with the larger rear light cluster complete with the characteristic LED lights. To further underscore the legendary performance of the SRT, the rear light cluster has a black border that creates the illusion of fluctuating lights. Completing the look of the new special series is the aerodynamic rear spoiler built into the tailgate with one-touch opening by pressing the raised "SRT" badge. The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Red Vapor is available in three body colours: Redline Pearl Clear Coat, Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl Coat and Bright White Clear Coat. Interiors The exclusive "SRT" logo on the steering wheel is backlit and the trim sports an anodised silver finish. Grey chrome replaces the standard shiny chrome and Radar Red details that give the luxurious and aggressive interior emphasis are used throughout the cab. The decorative dark red engine compartment lids beneath the bonnet complete the special look of the special series. Available with a specific Laguna leather interior upholstery in Black with central insert in Radar Red suede, the new Red Vapor special series is fitted out with the 8.4" Uconnect™ touchscreen display complete with integrated 3D navigation, advanced voice recognition with one-shot-destination-entry, Bluetooth audio streaming and hands-free system. The central console houses the leather-upholstered T-shaped selector for changing the eight speeds, while the heated three-spoke steering wheel with flat rear plate - an exclusive feature of the SRT version - offers a number of controls that provide the driver with comfort, functionality and connectivity. Another outstanding feature is the instrument panel containing a 7" colour multifunction display that the driver can completely customise, while carbon fibre details embellish the front door panels and the instrument panel. Lastly, the Red Vapor special series offers as standard the Harman Kardon surround sound system putting out 825 watts of power and that includes 19 speakers, 32-volt tracking power supply (TPS) and a 12-channel class D amplifier that offer all occupants exceptional acoustics and top quality sound. "Active Noise Cancellation" technology to exalt the sound of the 6.4-litre V8 engine Equipped with the tried-and-tested 468 HP 6.4-litre HEMI® V8 engine with 624 Nm of torque and equipped with Fuel Saver technology to cut fuel consumption and emissions, the SRT version boasts class-leading performance: acceleration 0-100 km/h in 5 seconds, top speed of 257 km/h, and a stopping distance from 100 to 0 km/h of 35 metres. This engine's performance is as extraordinary as its sound. The Red Vapor special series is able to carry it into the cab with the innovative Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) technology that exploits the car's sound system and four strategically placed microphones that also contribute to eliminating noise and vibration within the passenger compartment. The powerful engine is matched up with the eight-speed automatic transmission with Eco mode that optimises the gear shift programme and extends activation of the Fuel Saver technology (it deactivates four cylinders when conditions so permit). By using a button on the central console, the driver can activate the Eco mode to improve fuel savings. The gearbox software also analyses a number of variables - such as the engine torque gradients, the kick-downs, longitudinal and lateral acceleration, variations in road gradient, detection of the friction and downshifting - to properly adapt the gear changing map. To get a sporting driving experience, the driver can switch to manual mode and use the shift paddles on the steering wheel. An added feature is the electronic T-shaped selector that provides total freedom in choosing a gear shift programme independent from the Selec-Track system. Last but not least, the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT offers as standard the Launch Control system that when activated by pressing a button located on the central console lets the driver best manage performance by coordinating engine, transmission, traction, stability control and suspension for starting out in manual. Handling and braking system The Grand Cherokee SRT is fitted with short long arms (SLA) front suspension with coil springs, adaptive Bilstein suspension (ADS), upper and lower control arms (wishbones) and an anti-roll bar. A multi-link suspension with coil spring, Bilstein ADS, aluminium lower control arm, independent upper joints (tension and camber) plus separate toe-in arm and anti-roll bar have instead been chosen for the rear. The car is fitted with the Selec-Track system that uses performance tuning software to set apart the five dynamic modes - Auto, Sport, Tow, Track and Snow - so the driver can choose the car's ride the best meets use requirements and environmental conditions. Equipped with red 6-piston (front) and 4-piston (rear) Brembo callipers and 38-cm (front) and 35-cm (rear) ventilated discs, the Grand Cherokee SRT Red Vapor's braking performance is excellent: just a little more than 35 metres are needed to come to a complete stop from a speed of 100 k/h. Safety and comfort The 2015 Grand Cherokee SRT boasts advanced safety features: front collision warning that notifies the driver of quickly approaching vehicles, blind spot monitoring and detection of vehicles coming from behind, which helps driver when they change lanes or park. New Jeep Wrangler Unlimited “X” special series The new Wrangler "X" special series is making its début on the French catwalk. It will be available as a two-door Wrangler or a four-door Wrangler Unlimited in the EMEA Region starting from the first quarter of 2015. Two engines are available: the 2.8-litre turbo diesel delivering 200 hp of power and 460 Nm of torque, and the sparkling 3.6-litre petrol V6 Pentastar (284 hp of power and 347 Nm of torque). Both engines are matched to an automatic five-speed transmission. In Italy it will be available only fitted with the 2.8-litre turbo diesel engine with automatic five-speed transmission. Modelled on the Jeep Wrangler Sahara version, the new "X" special series has a unique exterior with a body-coloured seven-slot grille with glossy black inserts, raised dual-intake engine bonnet, 18" Gloss Black alloy wheels and black fuel tank cap by Mopar. Furthermore, to grant the freedom of the open air driving experience of a unique 4x4 convertible car that only the legendary Wrangler can deliver, the new "X" version comes standard with the modular Freedom Top® in the same colour as the body. The exclusive personalisation of the special series jumps to the eye on the interior as well, where the black leather seats with sporty fabric inserts and Light Slate Grey stitching, heated front seats, glossy Ceramic White inserts that distinguish the passenger grab handle, air vent surrounds on the dashboard and those of the instrument panel stand out. The on-board comfort for all occupants is ensured by a complete set of standard equipment that includes automatic climate control, leather steering wheel with built-in controls, heated front seats, special Mopar mats and a multimedia entertainment system and Uconnect™ GPS satellite navigation system with 6.5" touchscreen, 40 GB hard disk, USB port, AUX input and DVD video player. The legendary off-road capabilities of the Wrangler range are ensured by the part-time two-speed Command-Trac® NV241 four-wheel drive system with two-speed ‘shift-on-the fly’ gear selection and low gear range ratio of 2.72:1. All this and more without skimping on good looks to transfer the car's adventure-loving spirit into town, a concept also confirmed by the four liveries available: Bright White, Black, Firecracker Red and Baja Yellow. Jeep Renegade, the globe-trotter that changes the rules Arriving in Jeep showrooms in the EMEA region is the new Jeep Renegade, the first Fiat Chrysler Automobiles car to mark the brand's entry into the Small SUV segment. Depending on the market where sold, the range comprises four trim levels - Sport, Longitude, Limited and Trailhawk - and its price list starts from below Euro 20,000 for the 110 HP Sport 1.6 E-Torq version. Built at the renovated SATA plant in Melfi (Potenza), and sold in over 100 countries around the world, including the USA, the new little globe-trotter has a strong stylistic personality and is the right size for being used both in town and on off-road trails. It boasts class-leading off-road capabilities, excellent driving dynamics on the road, an exclusive nine-speed automatic transmission, two drive systems, engines offering efficient fuel consumption and a wide range of safety devices. In detail, the new Jeep Renegade has the Jeep brand's distinguishing elements in the stylistic features peculiar to the Jeep Wrangler. The vehicle’s exterior has a rugged look characterised by sharp lines, aggressive proportions and classic elements of Jeep’s stylistic heritage, such as round headlights, seven-slot grille and trapezoidal wheel arches. Two roof systems are also available on request to provide customers with the pleasure and freedom of the open air: a large electric sliding glass roof or the innovative 'My Sky', with removable panels which can be placed in the luggage compartment. The passenger compartment has a modern, refined appearance, where the quality of the materials used and great attention to detail stand out, as well as the state-of-the-art technological content available, such as the Uconnect™ infotainment system with 5" (as standard on all trim levels) or 6.5", in combination with satellite navigator, touchscreen and the instrument panel with 7" colour multiview display. The new Jeep Renegade is the perfect solution for getting about town owing to its agility and roominess, and for exploring new routes owing to its outstanding off-road capabilities. What's more, the two new advanced 4x4 systems - Jeep Active Drive and Jeep Active Drive Low - are fitted with an exclusive rear axle disconnection device so switching from two-wheel-drive to four-wheel is fluid and energy losses are reduced when it is unnecessary to use the 4x4 mode, thus improving overall fuel consumption efficiency. Depending on EMEA Region markets, 12 combinations of engines, gearboxes and drives are available: 140 HP 1.4-litre MultiAir2 with Stop&Start, six-speed manual gearbox with twin dry clutch and 4x2 drive; the 170 HP 1.4-litre MultiAir2 Turbo engine with Stop&Start, nine-speed automatic transmission and 4x4 drive; the 120 HP 1.6-litre MultiJet II with Stop&Start, six-speed manual gearbox and 4x2 drive; the 140 HP or 170 HP 2.0-litre MultiJet with Stop&Start, nine-speed automatic transmission or six-speed manual gearbox and 4x4 drive; and the 110 HP 1.6-litre E.torQ with Stop&Start, five-speed manual gearbox and 4x2 drive. The exclusive "Opening Edition" will be available on launch. This limited edition version offers an advantageous price to content ratio to the first customers who order the car. Based on the Limited top-of-the-range version, the "Opening Edition" is fitted with the 1.6 or 2.0 MultiJet II engine and is equipped with 4-wheel drive and the two-tone livery in Alpine White or Omaha Orange with black roof. Completing the look are the 18" Black alloy rims and ID badge. Catching the eye inside are the black leather seats with contrasting stitching, the Uconnect™ infotainment and navigation system and 6.5" screen with 3D maps, dual-zone automatic climate control, Passive entry with Keyless-Go, rear parking sensors, cruise control and 18" wheels with dedicated design. A global and innovative car, the little globe-trotter also changes the rules in how to communicate, as the exciting TV commercial that made its début in Italy a few weeks ago with an exclusive extended 1'45" version during prime time demonstrates. An integral part of an important TV, digital and press media campaign supporting the commercial launch, the film clip is a series of evocative images of landscapes and faces that cross territorial frontiers The starting point is the lines of a poem written for the occasion and performed by the singer Victor who in first person talks about his world, one in which he is a tree rooted in the water, a bird that lands on the shore of a lake, on a barrier-free and limitless voyage in which the only boundary is the sky and the only horizon is the skyline looming before him. This is how Victor identifies with the Renegade's spirit: “I am the one who turns the ordinary into something extraordinary. My music is the wind, and my light is a fire, I’m the game changer, he who changes the rules of the game, the hero who turns the world into a true story made up of strength, courage, novelty, a desire to change. I’m a Renegade." When the Jeep brand contacted the young artist this summer, he accepted the challenge of writing this piece dedicated to the new Renegade, as the two have a free spirit, an ability to change the rules of the game and turn the ordinary into something extraordinary in common. These are the precise concepts that powerfully emerge from Victor's poetry in music, lyrics written during his latest summer trip: ten, twenty words every day, and always in a different place, following that instinct - which is Jeep's as well - of discovery and adventure, wherever they hide. And thus, in a natural manner, Victor coined the lyrics that express what he experienced on this exhilarating trip of his in close contact with nature He left this place of the soul to return with a boost of energy to the “concrete jungle” that is the kingdom, the place where he loves to live and that he sings of in its swarming lights and sounds. These extraordinarily powerful words sum up the soul of the new Renegade as well. This younger Jeep is designed for a younger target that lives life "wild and wired" and wants to express itself in a non-conformist manner. I’m a Renegade (original lyrics by Victor Chissano) here we are another story ,another journey, today ,tomorrow on the flashlights tourney A sand dune made of gold , passion assault time to forgive and never forget, together, whatever in a golden jet set Landing on the shores of a lake and what i give is what i take. Over the green my thoughts run so free straight as an arrow and strong as a tree i’ve got roots growing down the water Hard steps are not alibi and it really does’t matter. Across a river and through a island sky is the limit but skyline is my horizon. i’m true , you are true, we are true, It’s the rebel rendezvous. My music is the wind and my light is a fire A never-ending path is what i desire. As a King in a Castle my wheel is my muscle Better run faster power in a tunnel I’m the lion and the master in my concrete jungle. You may say i’m a gambler but you are wrong I’m the gamechanger. Not a magician neither a wizard thousand of skins more than a lizard I don’t need a flag to be revolutionary transforming the ordinary into something Extraordinary Made for sharing without no compromise I’m connected to my freedom from sunset to sunrise I draw my own lines with no regrets and no lies creativity never sleeps so neither do I. Now concentrate time to elevate dont hesitate Me, myself and I it’s in my blood , i’m a Renegade.
