I went for a drive with a salesman the other day and was really impressed by the way the 4WD functions. In other vehicles you can't run in 4WD on dry pavement without the wheels binding up. On the Renegade, the salesman had me put it in 4WD then drive the tightest circles I could in a parking lot. No binding - indeed, it didn't feel any different in 4WD than it did in FWD. Impressive!
