So this video is almost a year old now, but I searched and couldn't find that anyone else has shared it on the Forums. It's not really testing the Trailhawk per-say, but it's showing a lot of what people would use it for and has some gorgeous footage.

Why isn't FCA doing something like this for a Renegade commercial?

Yeah, That's the commercial they should make. Too many commercials shown these days (many car makers) don't show enough of the actual car.

I apologize if this video is already on here, but I just saw it for the first time & love it! Anyone see one in person with a wench added on to it yet? Just wonder how practical it would be on a vehicle of this size/power.

Digging the winch location dunno but maybe I am OCD but all my winch installs are tucked low iny my frame or bumper as to keep max ground clearance. Also wishing we got the diesel in the North American market to make it more torquie andnextend the fuel range.

So I was watching this video again (because it freaking rocks!) and at about time-index 0:42 that Renny-hawk is in some seriously deep water. I mean, its just about even/above the headlights.

Does that look like more than 20" to anyone else? It certainly looks like more than 20" to me.

Now, obviously the driver knows what he's doing. He's going nice and slow, but steady enough to keep moving. I've seen idiot drivers hydro-lock in a _LOT_ less water than that.

Does anyone think there's anything that's been added to the Trailhawk in this video. I don't see any clue of a snorkel anywhere. But could it be something they've uber-sealed under the hood maybe?

Or is this just solely driver-experience mixed with the standard Trailhawk's setup?

Love this video, really shows the Renny holding its own with big-brother Wrangler, :)

I had to do some spontaneous water fording a few weeks ago during a flash flood on my way to work. I'm not trying to say it was as high as in that video but it was high enough that I was second guessing myself during it (but afterward wishing someone had taken video because it probably looked pretty cool :laugh: )
The TH pulled through just fine. There were a couple cars stranded in it including a newish Charger - no idea why you would try it in that!

Anyway, I'm no expert but I would say in the video it did it on its own without any hidden help.
