Chrysler LLC let loose a sneak peek of the next Jeep concept car - to debut at the 2008 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) - the 2008 Jeep Renegade. From the press release:

The 2008 Jeep Renegade Concept is a sporty B-segment-sized two-seater ideally suited for the all-weather delights of off-roading and dune surfing. Featuring a cut-down speedster windshield, a roll bar, openings in the door lowers and a hose-out interior, it is an "eco-friendly" vehicle with minimized use of materials designed for those who want to enjoy the earth while taking care of its future. The propulsion system combines a 40-mile lithium-ion battery pack and a small-displacement BLUETEC diesel engine. The result: fuel economy of more than 110 miles per gallon.

As far as I can tell, it looks to fit right at home in the lineup of the recent Jeep concept vehicles that have debuted at NAIAS the past few years. A couple of readers have mentioned that it looks like Master Chief's Warthog's from the Halo video game series.
