2016 Renegade: A ‘real Jeep’

The Renegade, Jeep’s new small SUV introduced last year, has the chops to take on some serious off-road conditions but delivers a pretty decent ride on the pavement as well. The Renegade, which gets a new Beats audio system for 2016, is a mix of the Cherokee and Wrangler, with a decided tilt toward Wrangler.

Jeep officials said they wanted to make the Renegade a “real Jeep,” so they gave it two full-time 4×4 systems: Jeep Active Drive and Jeep Active Drive Low with a 20:1 crawl ratio. Both systems have a Selec-Terrain system that allows the driver to select from five modes: Auto for basic everyday driving, Snow to minimize oversteer and improve traction, Sand for more traction and less wheel slip, Mud to maximize traction, and Rock (Trailhawk only) which implements the 20:1 crawl ratio.

If you want the most off-road capability from your Renegade, the trail-rated Trailhawk is the one with serious skills. Besides the extra “Rock” mode, the Trailhawk has 8.7 inches of ground clearance, skid plates, tow hooks, and hill-descent control. Unique fascias allow a 30.5-degree approach angle, a 25.7-degree breakover, and 34.3 degrees of departure. The Trailhawk can ford up to 19 inches of water and has a 2,000-pound towing capacity with the 2.4-liter engine and available tow package.

Two engines are available for the Renegade: Standard in the Sport and Latitude trims is a 1.4-liter MultiAir turbocharged inline four-cylinder, while the Limited and Trailhawk models get a standard 2.4-liter Tigershark turbocharged inline-four. The smaller engine develops 160 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque while the 2.4-liter engine kicks out 180 horses and 175 lb.-ft. of torque.
