Apparently this is going to replace the Patriot and/ or Compass: http://jalopnik.com/2015-jeep-renegade-this-is-it-1534601079 apparently the powertrain choices will be a 1.4T engine mated to a 6-speed manual or a 2.4L I-4 with a 9-speed auto. Definitely has that Fiat/ European look to it. Thoughts?

Well, I did buy the new Escape, which some say is a radical design. I like the new Cherokee, which is pretty radical. But this is radical in the wrong way. To me it's nice that they are offering a manual. Wonder if you can get a fully loaded manual.

I think I am going to wait until it comes out as a production model and then express an opinion.

Even in the US, they will offer it in a 4 cylinder diesel, which sounds like a winner to me! 4x4 capability + cheap enough to use as a daily driver (25-30MPG?). Will be interesting to see if they offer this or a diesel Wrangler first. Its only diesel competition would be more expensive SUVs like the BMW X1 diesel and Mercedes GLK250 which aren't really designed for much off road duty (at least in US spec).

At least for now it is coming with a manual, that is a plus. I wish all of the other compact SUVs didn't morph into look-a-like aerodynamic crossovers. I miss the boxy look that only the Forester has maintained.

Finally was able to see one of these at the Baltimore Auto Show this weekend. Smaller than the escape (of any gen) though I wouldn't even place them in the same class. Of course they did have the trail hawk model on display.
