Jeep® Renegade: Most Capable Small SUV Adds Features for 2016.
The 2016 Jeep® Renegade
delivers a unique combination of best-in-class off-road capability,
open-air freedom and convenience, a segment-first nine-speed automatic
transmission that contributes to outstanding on-road and off-road
driving dynamics perfectly suited to the roads of Holtsville, Hauppauge, Wading River and all over Long Island.
For 2016, the Jeep Renegade's offerings have expanded with the addition of several features, including the availability of BeatsAudio. The Renegade's optional Beats premium audio system includes nine speakers with a 6.5-inch subwoofer and 506-watt amplifier for studio-quality sound.
For added safety and convenience in inclement weather, the 2016 Jeep Renegade now offers rain-sensing wipers as standard on the Limited and Trailhawk models and optional on Latitude.
The 2016 Jeep Renegade is available in Sport, Latitude, Limited and Trailhawk models in 10 exterior paint colors, including the new-for-2016 Granite Crystal Metallic and Jetset Blue Metallic Clear Coat.
From the start, Jeep designers knew the Renegade
would need to deliver best-in-class off-road capability with city-sized
proportions that exuded the brand's rugged style while at the same time
enhancing versatility, maneuverability and style. Additionally,
designers were tasked to create an all-new SUV that would symbolize the
Jeep brand's renowned American design and ingenuity, as it would mark
the brand's first entry into the small SUV segment in more than 100
markets around the globe. Last, Renegade had to offer the open-air
freedom that dates back to its 1941 roots, with the Willys MB Jeep.
The result is the Jeep Renegade, a vehicle that builds on the Jeep Wrangler's powerful stance, and features fresh new styling with rugged body forms and aggressive proportions, which enable best-in-class approach and departure angles purposely designed to deliver best-in-class off-road capability. And for segment-exclusive panoramic views, two available "My Sky" open-air roof panel systems conveniently stow to provide passengers open-air freedom with ease.
Leveraging 4x4 technology from the Jeep Cherokee, the Jeep Renegade offers two of the most advanced and intelligent 4x4 systems in its class, all to deliver best-in-class off-road capability. Both systems can provide up to 1,475 lb.-ft. (2,000 N•m) of the engine's available torque to any one wheel, for optimal grip and traction.
Innovation is also at the forefront of any new Jeep vehicle, and the Renegade features the segment's first disconnecting rear axle and power take-off unit (PTU) - all to provide Jeep Renegade 4x4 models with enhanced fuel economy. Jeep Active Drive and Active Drive Low 4x4 systems instantly engage when 4x4 traction is needed.
Both Jeep Active Drive and Active Drive Low 4x4 systems include the Jeep Selec-Terrain system, providing up to five modes (Auto, Snow, Sand and Mud modes, plus exclusive Rock mode on the Trailhawk model) for the best four-wheel-drive performance on- or off-road and in any weather condition.
