LOS ANGELES, CA: Two new Jeep Renegade models will make their debut at this week’s 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, providing customers with two new and unique special editions for the most capable small SUV on the market.
The Jeep Renegade Deserthawk takes the Renegade Trailhawk’s rugged appearance and best-in-class capability a step further with exclusive features and functionality inspired by the desert – an extreme location where the legendary capability of Jeep vehicles is best expressed.
The Jeep Renegade Deserthawk, like the Renegade Trailhawk, delivers best-in-class Trail Rated 4×4 capability with standard Jeep Active Drive Low with 20:1 crawl ratio; Selec-Terrain system with exclusive Rock mode; 8.7 inches of ground clearance; skid plates; signature red front and rear tow hooks; up to 8.1 inches of wheel articulation; Hill-descent Control; up to 19 inches of water fording; and up to 2,000-lb. towing capacity.

Joining the other Altitude models across the Jeep lineup, the 2017 Jeep Renegade Altitude features a unique “blacked-out” look with a distinct, aggressive flair.
Available in all exterior colors, the Jeep Renegade Altitude features 18-inch Gloss Black wheels with Gloss Black accents around the exterior, including the front and rear badges, grille rings and tail lamp rings.
The Jeep Renegade Altitude, based on the Renegade Latitude model, is available with either a 2.4-litre Tigershark engine with MultiAir2 paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission, or a 1.4-litre MultiAir Turbo engine with a six-speed manual transmission.
The Renegade Altitude comes with a variety of standard features, including ParkSense rear backup camera and Keyless Go.
Renegade Altitude will be available in Jeep showrooms later this month; Renegade Deserthawk available in January.
