The image features a tall-body vehicle with all the right Jeep cues, such as the seven-slot grille, round headlights, and trapezoidal wheelaraches.
Appearing to be badged Renegade, the new model's shape also indicates a relation to the Fiat 500X SUV with which it shares its platform.
The baby Jeep has been years in the pipeline and is due to go on sale in 2015. It was originally going to sit on the Panda 4x4 platform, though there have been changes over the time since the formation of the FiatChrysler alliance.
Jeep has said there would be two versions of its smallest vehicle, with one offering greater off-road capability - possibly even gaining the brand's famous 'Trail rated' badge.
The baby Jeep will be built in Italy alongside the 500X - the first time a Jeep has been built solely outside of North America.
CarAdvice will bring all the images and details of the Jeep Renegade with its official reveal.
