If you’re looking for a tough SUV, why not make it the one that has been awarded the 2016 4x4 of the Year? With a Jeep Renegade, you know you are purchasing a solid SUV that you can rely on – it has been produced and revised for over 70 years and it’s still picking up awards.
The Renegade is a true Jeep. Its signature seven-slot grille, X-shaped tail lights and circular headlights give it away, and it makes no attempt to try and blend in with the fashion-focused cars you see on today’s roads. With its boxy shape and off-road tyres, it has an assertive stance that’s perfectly at home on rugged on or off-road routes and you can make it sportier with different alloy wheel designs.
Choose to add handy Mopar accessories, like a bike or snowboard carrier, to make your Jeep an even better asset for your lifestyle.
If you’re planning long journeys and want that extra bit of comfort, the Renegade won’t disappoint. Inside it feels spacious, sporty and hi-tech – the whole family will feel at home in this Jeep. All of the seats are ergonomically designed to properly support your frame and the central console is set low to increase the feeling of space. Grab handles and storage points are dotted about the cabin, so everyone can enjoy an off-roading experience comfortably and safely. To make the interior more eye-catchingly sporty, add a trim with bright Anodized Orange or Ruby Red bezels on the instruments. A striking seven-inch TFT instrument cluster is available on Limited and Trailhawk upgrades.
With its first-in-class nine-speed automatic transmission, there’s nothing traditional about the drive of the Renegade. True to Jeep’s innovative nature, the Renegade pushes the boundaries of what a car can do. There are two driving modes that you can use, depending on where your adventures are taking you. When you plan on hitting the highway or venturing only slightly off-road, stay with the Jeep® Active Drive – it will automatically set the right drive for the road, switching seamlessly between two-wheel and four-wheel drive when it needs to. If you’re scaling uneven roads, switch to the Jeep® Active Drive Low® system which has a 20:1 crawl ratio, giving it much more torque.
There’s also a Selec-Terrain™ system and you can select from four modes: Auto, Snow, Sand and Mud, each of which alters the traction control for the best performance. If you choose the Trailhawk variant, it will have an even stronger performance with the added Rock mode.
Thanks to the Uconnect™ LIVE infotainment system, you’ll always stay connected to your music, loved ones, navigation and news while on the move.
It’s controlled through a five-inch touchscreen (6.5-inch in upgraded versions) in the centre of the dashboard, so you can easily see where you’re heading and make a call when you need to. A handy optional upgrade is the reversing camera, which prevents you from scraping the back when you’re trying to get in or out of tricky spaces.
Along with advanced traction control, the Renegade comes with over 60 safety and security systems. Just to mention a few, it has Forward Collision Warning, Blind Spot Monitoring and Adaptive Cruise Control, which all help to prevent you from having a collision using sensors and radars as guides.
