The New York International Auto Show is a major stop on the world's auto show circuit. Like so much else in New York, it's big, it's loud, and it's one of the industry's highest-profile stages.
The Motley Fool's Rex Moore and John Rosevear were in New York last week for the two days devoted to events for the world's automotive and financial media -- and they've captured the highlights to share with you through the magic of video.
One of the highlights of the second day of the New York show was a Fiat Chrysler (NASDAQOTH:FIATY) event showing off the all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade. It wasn't an "unveiling", exactly -- the Jeep was first shown in Geneva back in March -- but it was the U.S. debut of the latest product from a very American brand.
This Jeep, though, was created with a global market in mind. Small SUVs and crossovers, particularly premium ones, have been a white-hot product segment in markets all over the world for a while now. With newly merged Fiat Chrysler looking to build out a global presence for Jeep, perhaps the greatest SUV brand of them all, a new small Jeep made a great deal of business sense.
As John and Rex explain in this video, the new Jeep may look a little cutesy -- but it will be offered in "Trail Rated" versions that should give it more off-road capability than most of its rivals.
