the 2015 Jeep Renegade is the newest and smallest SUV Jeep on the block. we have always loved Jeep and so we’d be lying if we say we weren’t excited. we have been looking forward to receive this baby Jeep the whole time before it was finally unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. visually, the Renegade’s design is a departure from traditional Jeep styling, featuring a more flared body and some pretty cute details. the Renegade will offer up to 16 powertrain combinations to suit the different markets and of which, it will include four MultiAir petrol units and two MultiJet II diesel engines, as well as the segment-first nine-speed automatic transmission. there will be manual models too, but we shall not dwell into it as details are not readily available yet.
our eyes will be on the Trailhawk version which is a 4×4 model, trail rated, no less. the Trailhawk 4×4 offers standard Jeep Active Drive Low (20:1 crawl ratio), Selec-Terrain system with Rock mode, a pumped up ride height, plus a slew of extras including skid plates, sweet red front and rear tow hooks, unique fascias, 17-inch all-terrain tires, long wheel articulation, hill-descent control, and up to 19 inches (480 mm) of water fording, just to name a few. there are also other few neat details like My Sky open-air roof systems, Uconnect Access for quick contact with emergency service dispatchers and roadside assistance provider, or vehicle customer care center, Uconnect touchscreen radio systems, user-customizable 7-inch full-color instrument cluster display, plus up to seventy advanced safety and security features. powerful stance with aggressive wheel-to-body proportions come standard with all 2015 Jeep Renegade.
spirit of adventure optional, but with a ride like this, it kind of beckons you to take the beaten tracks. no word on the pricing and neither was the availability announced. keep going for a few more look.
