Jeep Renegade

Jeep Renegade

Unmistakably a Jeep, the new Renegade has the distinctive front nose with the Jeep grille and round headlights.  Chunky lines follow a steeply raked windscreen and a high roofline, with a sharp drop over the Renegade’s classy rear-end.  As a small SUV, the Jeep Renegade does very well at creating a good amount of space inside the well-equipped cabin.  All the family will enjoy the great view from any of the five seats.  The cabin is cleverly designed to maximise the amount of rear leg room, while the seats are well cushioned and offer good support for a long day out on the trail.  I say trail, because the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk is very good off-road.

Off-road credentials start with Jeep’s Active Drive Low 4×4 system.  Having the ability to drop down to low range gearing means that the Jeep Renegade can tackle some pretty serious stuff beyond what most everyday people will ever want to go.  The Renegade performs well, and features both a single speed power transfer unit and disconnecting rear axle.  What is noticeable, or not-so noticeable, is the seamless interchanging that goes on between two-wheel and four-wheel drive.  For reasons of even better fuel efficiency, Jeep has made the rear axle able to disconnect from the front axle when conditions are easy.  When 4×4 is needed, the system instantly locks in the rear axle with the front drive and enhances handling and traction.

The Jeep Renegade offers a class exclusive nine-speed automatic transmission.  Each Jeep Renegade that is equipped with the 2.4-litre Tigershark engine profits from this transmission.  Smooth, torque–ready performance is the hallmark of this set-up.

The 1.4-litre MultiAir Turbo engine links with a six-speed automatic transmission for great performance and efficiency.  The 1.6 E-torQ engine boasts the new light-and-easy five-speed manual transmission, and the benefits of this drive is the reliable, efficient performance with good acceleration and excellent top-end power.

For ultimate off-road performance, the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk uses the 2.4-litre Tigershark petrol engine that is an in-line four cylinder.  Power is rated at 129 kW and torque is a healthy 230 Nm.  Features for the Trailhawk model include: a nine-speed automatic transmission, Jeep Selec-terrain with Active Drive Low, Hill Descent Control, four underbody skid plates, a full-size spare – steel wheel, 17-inch off-road alloy wheels, Trailhawk leather upholstery, a black anti-glare hood decal, Trailhawk front and rear fascia, ‘Trail Rated’ badging, a black front grille, a rear red tow hook and, mirrors and badging in an accented colour.
