2016 Jeep Renegade bucking sales trend for May

640 × 480
In what was a difficult May for car sales, one brand model stood out. The 2016 Jeep Renegade showed an increase in sales during this difficult month while most models from most other automakers showed a slight decline. That’s good news for both FCA and Jeep.

The 2016 Jeep Renegade
The 2016 Jeep Renegade is a Jeep for those who spend most of their time on the road and not off it. It’s more refined and much more car-like than the Wrangler but still has off road chops for when you need them.

The design is very typical of Jeep. The grille could have been taken straight out of a Wrangler. The rest is a little different. Curved panels and subtle styling are pleasing to the eye. High ground clearance and wheels in each corner hint that it could go into the rough should it need to but the rest hints at a CUV that would be happy anywhere.

Inside, the cabin is anything but entry level. Quality materials, good workmanship, nice layout and lots of features make this a vehicle of note. You can keep things simple too if you prefer, but otherwise the Renegade is quite well equipped.

Engines
There are two engine options for the 2016 Jeep Renegade, a 1.4-litre turbo four that delivers 160 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque or a 2.4-litre four that delivers 180 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. The 1.4 uses a six speed manual transmission while the other uses a nine speed automatic.

Vehicles are either front or all-wheel drive. All-wheel drive Renegades get switchable terrain modes and a series of off road options, especially in Trailhawk trim.

2016 Jeep Renegade trims
The 2016 Jeep Renegade has four trims, Sport, Latitude, Limited and Trailhawk.

The Sport offers steel wheels, keyless entry, power accessories, cloth interior, four speaker sound system with USB input and adjustable front seats. The Latitude adds alloy wheels, roof rails, auto lighting, fog lights, heated mirrors, air conditioning, LED lighting, cruise control Bluetooth and a reversing camera.

The Renegade Limited adds 18 inch alloys, dual exhausts, auto wipers, climate control, driver’s information display, remote engine start, power outlet, leather interior, heated front seat and steering wheel.

The Renegade Trailhawk offers four wheel drive, higher ground clearance, hill descent control, tow hooks, skid plates, all-terrain tyres, auto wipers, premium cloth interior with red piping and unique interior and exterior trim.

The 2016 Jeep Renegade is a classy car with genuine off road ability. Visit Parkway Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Mississauga, 2260 Battleford Road, Mississauga, ON, L5N 3K6 to book a test drive.
