The 2015 Jeep Renegade

 

Trailhawk Renegade

Renegade Latitude

Jeep has come out ready to rumble with the new 2015 Renegade. This SUV/crossover is a fresh take that is a superior choice when looking for a rugged yet comfortable vehicle. To check out the innovative design and features of the 2015 Renegade, stop by Chapman Dodge.

The Renegade comes in two models. The Latitude is equipped with 16-inch aluminum wheels, front fog lamps, deep tint sunscreen glass, ParkView Rear Back Up Camera and the Uconnect system. The Trailhawk edition has a class-exclusive, Jeep Active Drive Low 4×4 with a 20:1 crawl ratio, 17-inch off-road aluminum wheels with aggressive tires and a 0.8-inch lift with off-road suspension and hill descent control. And then there’s the Selec-Terrain system that will be available on all models. This is designed specifically to handle almost any terrain that is thrown at this vehicle, including snow, sand, and mud. In the Trailhawk version of the Renegade, it can also handle rock climbing with ease.

In fact, the Trailhawk edition is perfectly suited to some serious off-roading. For one thing, the taller ride and clearance makes it much easier to traverse difficult trails without worrying about the undercarriage. The 17 inch wheels also do a good job of making off-road duty safer for your vehicle. Hill descent control is incredibly helpful, and four wheel drive is available on all of the models this year, though the base models also come in front wheel if that’s more what you’re looking for.

The Jeep Renegade will have a choice of two different engines: a turbocharged 1.4 liter with 160 horsepower that comes only with the six speed manual transmission, and a larger, 2.4 liter, 184 horsepower non-turbo one that comes with everything else. Moreover, the nine speed automatic transmission is a nice touch that works well for fuel efficiency on a crossover.If you are looking to get your hands on a 2015 Jeep Renegade, you should head to your local showroom and take one out for a spin.

Another benefit toward fuel efficiency is a rear axle that disconnects when traction isn’t needed, something that is quite brilliant in a vehicle of this type.

The Jeep Renegade is unquestionably the smallest model in the Jeep lineup, sitting at about 16 inches shorter and 2 inches narrower than the Cherokee, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t loaded up with many of the features that have made Jeeps so popular lately, including smartphone-integrated infotainment with 5 and 6.5 inch touchscreen displays available, as well a 7-inch configurable gauge display. The rearview camera, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, and forward collision warning are also nice touches that make this a much safer ride than many of its contemporaries in a pretty crowded class.

Plus there are a number of nods to comfort, including remarkably cushy seats for a Jeep and dual sunroofs with individual controls, something noted on the Wrangler as well.

The fact of the matter is that the Jeep Renegade is only a smaller version of the same types of Jeep that we’ve all come to expect. While only the Trailhawk is really suited for off-roading, it does so with flair and style. The design is less boxy, making it much more attractive to a wider audience, but underneath that smoothness it’s still a Jeep. And that’s a good thing.
