Jeep Coppers Up Renegade Apollo Special Edition for Beijing Auto Show

While Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) nears a deal with Chinese officials that will allow the group to produce Jeep models in China, possibly starting with the new Cherokee and continuing with the Renegade that will soon begin rolling out of Fiat’s factory in Melfi, Italy, the automaker will celebrate the local premiere of its new small SUV at the Beijing Auto Show with a special edition version.

It’s named the Jeep Renegade Apollo and on the outside, it sports a bespoke brown finish with copper-colored trim accents, badges and wheels.

The same color theme is used in the individualized interior with copper accent finishes, brown leather and cloth seat upholsteries.

Further details on the car and Jeep’s production plans will be released over the weekend.
