Holy Renegade Batman! Jeep partners with the Dark Knight for Batman V. Superman

Given his status as a billionaire CEO, Bruce Wayne has the luxury of driving just about anything he wants. There’s the Batmobile, of course, but if he’s feeling a bit more subtle, his jet black Lamborghini Murcielago (Spanish for bat, by the way) never disappoints.

Both of those choices lack practicality though, which is why there’s a new spot in the Batcave for the 2016 Jeep Renegade Dawn of Justice Special Edition. Just announced by Jeep, the vehicle celebrates a marketing relationship between Warner Bros. Pictures and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, who will “address every automobile need for the movie.”

“Our partnership with Warner Bros. and the highly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice film allows us to expose the Jeep Renegade and its best-in-class capability to an incredibly vast audience,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand. “The new Jeep Renegade Dawn of Justice Special Edition boasts a unique, dark appearance package for the most capable small SUV that we’re confident consumers — including millions of moviegoers — will love.”

The crossover — which is featured in several advertisements for the film — is available in dealerships now for $26,250, and wears either a Granite Crystal or Carbon Black exterior finish. The Renegade also equips 18-inch gloss-black wheels, a two-tone roof, unique exterior badging, and an all-black interior to match Batman’s cape cowl. Mechanically, the Dawn of Justice Special Edition is identical to the Jeep Renegade Latitude 4×4, which comes standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder and a nine-speed gearbox. The featured vehicle is fitted with remote start, a power driver’s seat, and dual-zone automatic temperature control, however.

Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, and Jessie Eisenberg, and opens in the U.S. on March 25.
