Mopar-ized Renegades, Challenger T/A

by David Zatz on

Mopar has prepared three customized vehicles for the Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS) next week: two Jeep® Renegades and a Dodge Challenger T/A Concept.

The off-road Mopar-equipped Jeep Renegade has a unique Commando Green paint job, highlighted on both sides by large, bold body-side graphics that pick up on the “X”-shape styling of the tail lamps (borrowed from the Jerry-can “X” design associated with first-generation military Jeeps).

A map of Detroit, the location of the show, is on a hood decal (a customizable Mopar accessory that’s been available since last year).   The wheels have a single spoke outlined in red, along with the black ones. Cross rails and a Mopar roof basket are also satin black, with a gloss black body side rail.

A concept skid plate, prototype rock rails and rear valance, and production roof rails are tied by a matching neutral grey satin color; a production Mopar skid plate kit protects the underbody. Jeep badging is also trimmed in neutral grey, and the Jeep logo is laser cut on the rock rails.

Inside is the inevitable Katzkin leather, along with exterior-matching bezels and trim.  Mopar slush mats, a Mopar cargo tray, and Jeep-logo doorsills complete the customization.

There is also an “Urban” Renegade, built off the Limited with Anvil paint and Omaha orange touches, including orange pockets on the satin black wheels, along with orange accented mirror caps, grille rings, taillamp surrounds and roof rails. A bike carrier is attached to the hitch. Again, the interior has Katzkin leather, with orange highlights on trim pieces; and rather than off-road oriented mats, Mopar used a premium carpet mat and carpet cargo mat.

The Dodge Challenger T/A Concept, which debuted at the 2014 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas last November, is done in Sublime Green with full-length matte black T/A graphics, a functional center scoop hood, and glossy black hood pins. Cool outside air streams into the 6.4-liter (392 HEMI®) engine. The front splitter and deck-lid spoiler add downforce while Air Catcher headlamps funnel cool air to the engine.  For more, see our existing Challenger T/A page.
