Jeep May Introduce New Freedom, Jeepster And 80th Anniversary Trims in 2021

FCA and Jeep have heavily invested in their larger vehicles of late but the entry-level Jeep Renegade was not forgotten.

  • All will be offered on the Jeep Renegade.

  • They will consist mostly of appearance packages.

  • Some exist or have on other Jeep models.

The Jeep Renegade has not garnered the amount of traction in its small SUV segment is probably should have. These new packages might help elevate its appeal.

Jeep’s reputation was built on its larger, better-known vehicles, and it shows. FCA and Jeep have invested heavily in its upcoming Grand Wagoneer, Grand Cherokee, Wrangler, and Gladiator. Now, it’s the Renegade’s turn. For the 2021 model year, it will earn four new packages, and according to, most will be appearance ensembles and bear recognizable names.

A Freedom Edition, assumingly similar to one offered with the Wrangler, will join the lineup in 2021. If they are similar, we can expect that it includes military-themed decals on the body, dark satin wheels, embroidered seats, and a data plate on the rear tailgate. It will probably be based on the Sport and Upland trims.

A Jeepster is also expected. This is a familiar name in both production and concept form. One of the more recent “Jeepster” concepts featured a two-tone paint job which will likely be the package’s highlight.

The Islander package was last seen on the previous generation Wrangler JK. At the time, Jeep said that it “conveys open-air fun at first and every glance,” and were all offered with specific colour schemes, namely Surf Blue Pearl Coat exterior color, Bright Silver Metallic Clear Coat, and Brilliant Black Crystal Clear Coat. Similar paint offerings will possibly be delivered on the Altitude trim.

The 80th Anniversary package will not be limited to the Renegade. Rumour has it that all of FCA‘s Jeeps will get a variation on the theme. Odds are that it will consist of wheels and specific exterior hues, as is the case with the Gladiator. Odds are it will be based on the more luxurious Limited trim or possibly the Altitude.
