Jeep and Tough Mudder have put their expertise and innovation commitment to the test after partnering to create the first ever ‘Tough Mudder for Jeep’ to launch the limited edition Renegade Tough Mudder.
To celebrate Jeep’s fourth year sponsoring the UK Tough Mudder series, it has released just 100 of the special limited edition vehicles – which go on sale today (27 April) in the UK – just two days ahead of the 2017 UK season kick-off at London West on April 29th.
The limited edition Renegade successfully waded through a course designed by Tough Mudder, tackling rough terrain, dirty water and signature Tough Mudder obstacles, including ‘Mud Mile’ and ‘Quagmire.’ The Renegade also tackled the steep slopes and inclines of ‘Killa Gorilla’ and the treacherous Cliff Hanger obstacle.
Costing £27,795 OTR, the limited edition Renegade embodies the spirit, fun, adventure and innovation of Tough Mudder with Jeep’s legendary off-road credentials ensuring drivers can tackle any challenge while Mudders push themselves into the unknown on the continually evolving obstacle course.
Will Dean, Tough Mudder CEO and Co-founder commented on the new Tough Mudder Renegade: “We are proud to partner with Jeep for the fourth consecutive year and enhance the onsite experience for participants, as Mudders from all over the UK get the opportunity to check out Jeep’s iconic fleet of vehicles. We are thrilled to partner in launching the limited edition Renegade Tough Mudders. I look forward to getting behind the wheel of the Renegade myself.”
The first ever ‘Tough Mudder for Jeep’ took place at Silverstone Circuit’s off-road course, Northamptonshire.

About Tough Mudder and Jeep
2017 marks the fourth year that Jeep UK partners with Tough Mudder, the leading active lifestyle brand and media company, which hosts a series of endurance and mud run events all over the world.
The famed ‘Mud Mile’ obstacle will return to the 10-12-mile Tough Mudder Full and 5-mile Tough Mudder Half events throughout the season where thousands of Mudders will tackle the co-branded Jeep obstacle at the event. Once again, the Renegade converted into a DJ booth will be providing extra motivation for Mudders on that section of the course.
Jeep will be present at six Tough Mudder events this year, providing a fleet of Jeep Renegade, Cherokee and Grand Cherokee vehicles and displaying the new Renegade Tough Mudder limited edition. The Jeep Fest Service Station will return for a second time, enhancing the participant experience by featuring a face-marking station for participants to use pre-event.
As Mudders finish the events, the Jeep Fest Service Station will also be giving away car seat covers to keep their vehicle interiors clean.
