Thumbs up Climbing 42 hill test - impressive!

I was impressed to see the Renegade trailhawk climbing a 90% gradient hill (or 42 slope) at the Sudheide off-road park, in Germany.


The highest gradient I've seen a vehicle climbing was 45 (a Mercedes G-wagon and a Wrangler Rubicon did it), but I was not expecting that the 2.0L Turbodiesel Renegade could do it. It looks like that the 258lb.ft of torque are enougth to do the job

This looks pretty tame compared to the WABDR sections 2 and 3, lots of off camber 3 wheelin' and "sky, ground" views. It looks like they have upgraded tires too, not the Falken "street tires" they put on them
