Jeep Renegade sales surge in July

640 × 480
The 2016 Jeep Renegade saw a sales surge in the first half of this year that ended with a 57% surge in July alone. The new Jeep has obviously resonated exceptionally well with buyers across North America as sales continue to improve while many other automakers see dips or plateaus in sales.

July was a mixed month for automakers with some brands seeing a decline in sales while others saw gains. Kia, Nissan, Ram, Dodge, Ford and Lincoln all saw increases for 2016 overall with Lincoln and Ram seeing a 10% increase for the year so far!

The 2016 Jeep Renegade with its 57% sales increase is the headline for us though.

2016 Jeep Renegade
The 2016 Jeep Renegade is what you get when you take a well-established brand and inject some Italian flair and energy. It is definitely still a Jeep but has a lot more going on than the usual box on wheels.

The fact that the Jeep grille is still there while the red crosses on the rear like the jerry cans of the original Willys Jeep are present shows that the two automakers are happy to look into the future while still honouring the past. They are neat touches that keeps this compact crossover firmly in touch with its heritage while also looking forwards.

The design is chunky but soft. Rounded edges, round lights, curvy body panels and a ‘friendly’ design widens the appeal of the 2016 Jeep Renegade. Inside, the cabin mixes more Italian style with Jeep practicality. The touchscreen with Uconnect is as strong as ever while the interior design is very comfortable indeed. Four adults can travel in comfort with a few bags in back. That’s more than you might expect for such a compact car.

Two engines are available, a 1.4-litre turbo four that produces 160 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. There is also a 2.4-litre four cylinder that produces 184 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. The 1.4 uses a six speed manual transmission while the 2.4 has a nine speed auto. Front wheel drive is standard but AWD is an option.

Despite being built on the Fiat 500 platform, the 2016 Jeep Renegade has real off road ability. With decent ground clearance, good entry and exit angles and the option for Jeep Active Drive and Selec-Terrain traction control, there are few places this little Jeep cannot go. For those other places, the Trailhawk trim should fit the bill nicely.
