Chrysler’s Mopar parts and tuning arm has turned its attentions to the compact new Renegade, adding a number of tricks for the coming Geneva Motor Show.

Known as the Renegade Hard Steel, the customised Trailhawk-based concept gets an unpainted brushed-metal finish, matched with matte black highlights across the exterior.

There’s also a Trailhawk-engraved skid plate set, a raised suspension package, 16-inch alloy wheels and meaty BF Goodrich All Terrain off-roading tyres.

Then there’s that trailer, designed to mimick the rear end of its tow vehicle - as all good custom trailers do.

This two-wheeled special is packed not with camping gear, but with a large screen that showcases the functions of Fiat Chrysler’s updated UConnect infotainment system. A big set of speakers are also featured, of course.

The Renegade will be the first model to get the new system, which boasts internet music streaming from Deezer and TuneIn, live news updates from Reuters, real-time TomTom traffic alerts, and social media connectivity with Facebook and Twitter.

Jeep has yet to confirm production plans for either the Hard Steel concept (we suspect any roadgoing model would get a proper paint job) or the trailer.

The Jeep Renegade will make its Australian market debut in October.
