Two Cute: Tiny Jeep Renegade Concept Gets Even Tinier Matching Trailer

2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk Hard Steel Edition
Aww, look! Jeep gave its tiny-tot Renegade a little trailer and sent it to Geneva to melt Europeans' hearts! Okay, so Jeep did a little bit more than simply add a lookalike trailer to its newest small crossover and send it up to Switzerland for one of Europe's biggest auto shows. It also painted the duo with a compelling "brushed steel livery" and gave it a bumpin' sound system. The result is the Renegade Hard Steel.

We certainly dig the Jeep Renegade Hard Steel's look—silver with matte-black trim and wheels is tough to beat—and the trailer is amazing. The unit unfolds to reveal a giant touch screen loaded with a version of Chrysler's Uconnect infotainment system as well as a bunch of speakers (although we're a bit confused as to why the trailer has a fuel door). As for what's pulling the trailer, the Renegade Hard Steel, it's based on the  Trailhawk and thus gets all-terrain tires, a raised ride height, and a natty roof rack. Inside, Jeep covered the seats with Frau leather, and there are brushed-steel accents matched to the exterior theme.

A collaboration between Jeep, Mopar (Chrysler's parts and accessories arm), and the Fiat-Chrysler Style Center, the Renegade Hard Steel is intended to show off potential Mopar accessories. We certainly hope the endearing little trailer becomes one of those accessories, because we'd tow that home in a heartbeat.
