The Los Angeles Auto Show is just around the corner and the latest automaker to reveal what’s in store for the event is Jeep – which has to limited series Renegade models.
The special series are called the Deserthawk and Altitude, both serving a wide array of tweaks – in a bid to make customers the competent off-roader is not really on the boring side. The “Deserthawk” has been developed starting from the already rugged Trailhawk trim, and comes with black 17-inch wheels and special decals onto the body which can be had in Alpine White, Anvil, Black colors, or the Mojave Sand that we have in the gallery – which is also exclusive to this special series. It also gets roof rails and a towing package, with the cabin adorned with black leather-wrapped seats with contrasting stitching, seven-inch cluster, rearview camera, a cargo tray mat, and all-weather floor mats. It has the Trailhawk’s body kit and Selec-Terrain system and the usual 2.4-liter Tigershark engine packing 180 horsepower (134 kilowatts) and 175 pound-feet (237 Newton-meters) of torque, sent to an AWD system via a nine-speed automatic transmission.
The Renegade Altitude has a darker appearance, based on a Renegade Latitude, but with a set of glossy black 18-inch wheels as well as a large family of glossy black body accents. The dark theme carries to the interior where there’s black cloth upholstery, as well as black accents throughout the cabin. This version can be had with the 2.4-liter unit or with a 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo boasting 160 hp (119 kW) and 184 lb-ft (250 Nm), linked to the front wheels and a six-speed manual gearbox. The model will cost $22,390 MSRP, while the Renegade Deserthawk will have an asking price of $28,140 MSRP.
