All-New Jeep Renegade
Here at Dave Syverson Auto Center we are big fans of the Jeep brand. Our customers and staff have been raving about the all-new Jeep Renegade model that is coming out for the 2015 model year. So we have decided to dedicate this blog post to highlighting everything that we love about this all-new model.
The 2015 Renegade is the newest compact utility vehicle being produced by Jeep. This vehicle is combines Jeep’s iconic styling and off-road durability with Fiat’s expertise in compact, fuel efficient vehicles. This model is sure to stand apart in the competitive compact utility vehicle segment due to its unique styling, modern design and off-road capability. One of the reasons that this vehicle is becoming so popular with Jeep fans is because it is a fuel-efficient vehicle that is equally at home in both the city and out on the trails.
This vehicle features two advanced powertrain and transmission options to choose from. The first option is an extremely fuel efficient 1.4-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine that produces 160 horsepower with 184 pound-feet of torque. The other option is an athletic 2.4-liter, TigerShark, four-cylinder that produces 184 horsepower with 177 pound-feet of torque. The transmission options for the Renegade will be either a six-speed manual transmission or a smooth and efficient nine-speed automatic.
The Renegade has a car-like design layout but still maintains the trail rated badge that Jeep has made Jeep famous over the years. Even though the Renegade is compact and fuel efficient, it is able to maintain great off-road durability and is very well equipped. It has standout features like a fully independent suspension, a stability control system, and four-wheel vented disc brakes. Those are just a few of the many great features that help this new model shine in such a competitive segment.
