Red face Speed and Performance

Do you want more responsiveness from your motor?
It's very easy. Go to Fiat 500 Madness (website)
and check out their performance products for the Fiat and Renegade.

I bought the GoPedal . The performance upgrade is simply astounding!

Quicker response. Faster performance. I am very happy with it.

It has several settings to suit your driving style.
AS usual please drive with care. These things make speeding so tempting. Your car might feel like a little Ferrari.

I LOOOOOOVE IT !!

No GoPedal here, but I get sharper throttle response from switching to MUD mode, might not be as much as GoPedal. My new lables for the SelecTerrain:
Snow = Eco (dull response and flat acceleration) Stop n go traffic.
Sand = Sport (good response and good acceleration) Daily driving.
Mud = Drift (sharp response and fast acceleration + no traction control interference) Fun driving.

Yeah why not? All the mode does is changing the throttle response, traction control, and power steering assist. And I read somewhere the F/R power ratio too, but not verified. I haven't found any official document from Jeep that posts the exact details of each mode.

Doesn't it go into 4wd when you switch to one of the modes...my 91 ford said not to engage 4wd until on dirt...has something changed about 4wd I don't know about...thanks for info

It's still not a good idea. Those are "off-road" modes for a reason. They change the throttle mapping so you don't get stuck in the snow by spinning your tires or bog down in mud or sand. It also changes ABS, traction/stability control, and the transmission programming between the modes. Auto is the only one where it isn't in 4WD all the time, only if the front wheels slip will it send power to the rear axle.

2017 Ford Explorer Platinum 3.5 EcoBoost 4WD
2016 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk 4x4

Yeah, it's an AWD system pretending to be a 4wd system. Your truck with 4wd with a gear reducintg transfer case also effectively had no center diff. Things spinning at different speeds left and right, front and back caused stresses that could damage things.

The system in the rengade is litterally a cheaper version of what is in the ford focus RS. It's cheaper because it doesn't have torque vectoring. Jeep gave it multiple modes via software.
