The first Jeep Renegade (Trailhawk) has arrived in Yellowknife, NWT, Canada. I'm hoping to test drive it tomorrow (Saturday). I will report back and hopefully have some pictures. I am not planning on buying the trailhawk but it will be very exciting to see one in person! Stay tuned!

I was only able to take it for a short test drive as it was the only Renegade they've received yet with a long line of people wanting to test drive it. They believe another will be on the way soon and then when mine gets here, I will be able to take it for the afternoon for the test drive.

Initial thoughts:

- roomy driver and passenger areas.
- Small back seat
- Alright cargo area
- Full spare on trailhawk
- Looks even better in person on the exterior.
- Even the 6.5 inch upgraded Nav screen looks small
- Feels peppy but haven't gotten to really find out how it runs due to the short duration of the test drive.
- Front window feels panoramic. Very wide.
- Rear window is small but blindspots aren't bad.
- Keyless passive entry and start is cool.
- I would have really like an auto close button on the gate. Would have been a nice feature.
- Vehicle didn't have My Sky so no review available on that.

If you have any other questions, I can try to answer them.

What did you order?
I'm waiting on the 1.4T/6-speeds to start coming in to decide what to get.

I agree that the 5.0 uConnect is as small as it can get and still be. useable.
The 3.5" is dinky to the point of being vestigial.
Jeep needs to figure out how to stuff a larger screen in there.

I got to drive a Fiat 500L with the 1.4T/auto the other day.
It was pepy dispite being around 200lbs heavier, having an auto and being higher geared ( 3.5xx vs 4.438 ) than the Rene.
A good omen.

The interior on the 500L felt cartoonish though.
The over sized lettering on the shifter, odd parking brake and overall layout of the interior was trying way too hard to be " youthful ".
