How We’d Spec It: The Wrangler-est 2015 Jeep Renegade

2015 jeep renegade

We all would love a Jeep in our garage, some of you surely bought themselves one of these beauties but even so, this automaker never stops to amaze me, this time with the new 2015 Jeep Renegade. We can say that this one is a tad off the Wrangler wheel because it has overreached its reputation and entered a realm that is not quite typical for this four wheeler.

The fact that its built in Italy, and, a lot of other stuff make this little crossover everything but a Wrangler.
It’s strange that a vehicle like the 2015 Jeep Renegade doesn’t have solid axles, massive suspension articulation, or a ladder frame. Still it’s not well of the grid because it does offer a stiff, well-isolated unibody and a fuel-efficient 2015 Jeep Renegade engine, and with a nice design line it comes with a ton of features and high level of capability.
Other reports say that the 2015 Jeep Renegade also magnitudes better than the Jeep Compass/Patriot series.
And now that the little 2015 Jeep Renegade’s online configurator is up and running, we can show you how we’d build one out.

An Affordable Crossover

The base price of the 2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk 4×4 is a low $26,990. You can actually make a Renegade version that will be close to a typical Wrangler feel and that the Trailhawk.

The only Trail Rated member of the Renegade family, the Trailhawk sports bright-red tow hooks, knobby all-terrain tires, a raised ride height, slimmer front and rear bumpers, and a standard four-wheel-drive system with low-range gearing.

On the other hand also the other 2015 Jeep Renegade versions sport quite a fair bargain. Like the bare-bones Sport model which can offer you quite a fun ride. This is thanks to the new jeep renegade specs that reveal a standard 1.4-liter turbo four and six-speed manual—we chose the Trailhawk because it looks about as badass as a car-based, B-segment SUV can look.

The Renegade Trailhawk also happens to come standard with a Wrangler’s worth of standard equipment, as befits its position near the top of the Renegade hierarchy.

Tigershark Four Cylinder Engine

The 2.4-liter “Tigershark” four-cylinder engine and nine-speed-automatic combo that’s optional on the base Renegade Sport and midlevel Latitude is included. The guys over at — made a version that mixes the 180-hp Tigershark with the lower-spec Renegades’ standard stick shift. And despite the fact the automatic to be smooth and unobtrusive in operation, we think that a four-wheeler should be driven with a shift stick just for the sake of the 4 X 4 power.

 

The standard package also includes dark-finished 17-inch wheels, fog lights, a shift knob, backup camera, heated door mirrors and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

You also get Chrysler’s a fantastic Uconnect touch screen with six audio speakers. You’ll be also rolling this beauty out of the dealer’s with Trail Hawk’s underbody skid plates, as well as a black-painted roof.

2015 Jeep® Renegade Trailhawk

Even with the standard version we can surely say that the Jeep Wrangler Renegade is a fine vehicle. Not everything you’ll wish to have with your Renegade comes with a price, your choice of color will be absolutely free and you can choose from 10 available colors. They have quirky names too, take the dark grayish-blue hue called Anvil.

Cover that with the Trail Hawk’s black-plastic body cladding, and you have a nice looking toy car you would love to have when you were 7 years old.
For the design to be a notch better, it has a black-painted roof. You can even choose to apply decals. It will cost you an additional $150 on a matte-black hood sticker. It actually covers the “power dome” on the hood of the Renegade. One of the maybe most versatile utility upgrades you can put on that brand new Renegade is a $395 Trailer Tow Group with a hitch and 4- and 7-pin wiring, which allows you to take full advantage of the Trail Hawk’s measured at an impressive 2000-pound tow rating.
