Redefine fun in new Jeep Renegade

627

When it comes to having fun behind the steering wheel while exploring Limpopo’s lush Bushveld or hitting the city streets for some serious shopping, the new Jeep Renegade offers the perfect form of transport to do what you enjoy most.
Since 1941 Jeep has set the bar for off-road and driving fun a little higher. The Renegade is whole different breed of the seven-slot wonder. It is designed for the city and nurtured in the wild, it brings together unparalleled performance, top notch technology and a cheeky, gritty personality.
The Renegade’s stance is powerful with proportion aggression and it looks and feels tremendously nonconformist and fresh. The Renegade is full of unique details and legendary Jeep brand design cues. Its look is built upon the Wrangler’s powerful stance, elaborating its rugged body forms and decisive proportions. At the front, the iconic seven-slot grille is surrounded by a vibrantly coloured shield, while large circular headlights are tucked under the hood for a snappier look. The trapezoidal wheel arches are in continuation of the Jeep legacy.
Interior design should always make a strong, lasting emotional impact. That’s how the interior appearance of the new Jeep Renegade came to be. Its rugged and energetic look continues the brand’s legendary heritage. Its design theme is defined by intersections of soft and tactile forms with gritty and functional details. The electric parking brake is operated by a switch mounted in the centre console. The sculpted soft-touch instrument panel intersects with bold functional elements like the passenger grab handle.
On board comfort and entertainment are assured by the available top-of-the-line nine-speaker 560 watts Beats audio system and a number of technology features including a steering wheel with integrated controls, Uconnect 5” and 6,5” touchscreen systems. They manage Bluetooth connectivity, radio, USB and auxiliary audio jack input. The driver can select from a multitude of information that can be displayed in the centre of the gauge cluster including turn-by-turn navigation, speed, realtime fuel economy, safety warnings, audio-information and Jeep specific features including Selec-Terrain.
Jeep is known for equipping their vehicles with powerful engines with no lesser capacity than a 3,0 litre. But the Renegade is different. The range of powertrain combinations available will fit every need for efficiency and performance, in town or off-road. You can choose from the innovative 1,4 MultiAir turbo petrol engine, the powerful 1,6 eco turbo diesel engine, 2,4 MultiAir petrol engine or the efficient 1,6 E.torQ petrol engine. They bring together ruggedness and efficiency in an endless array of transmissions, from manual to the best-in-class nine-speed automatic transmission. Traction systems are available in front wheel drive and four wheel drive for power ranging from 81 kW to 137 kW, while fuel efficiency is guaranteed by the category-exclusive rear axle disconnect system that seamlessly switches between two and four wheel drive, only when 4X4 traction is needed.
Off-road riding and downtown driving are best enjoyed the safe way. That’s why the new Renegade puts safety and security on top of everything else, resulting in up to 60 available safety and security features including Forward Collision Warning-Plus (optional) and LaneSense Departure Warning-Plus standard on the Limited version.
