Renegade “best in class” 4×4

No really new information here but what is noteworthy is it is the first Jeep communiqué to U.S. Dealers that has come to light. We can hope this means more U.S. information to come. I will note at the Orange County Auto Show this weekend Jeep was handing out the Full Line Jeep brochure which did include a two page layout of the Renegade in the front.

A recent communiqué to dealers points out the ways the Jeep Renegade has best in class capabilities, particularly in off-road capability. The class is defined as the Nissan Juke, Mini Countryman, Mini Paceman, and Buick Encore — not a group particularly associated with off-roading, and excluding the admittedly larger RAV4. The rationale is “small SUV sub-segmentation.”

That said, the Trailhawk version has approach and departure angles equal to or better than Cherokee Trailhawk, with the same ground clearance (also “best in class.”) The Renegade has the only rearl axle disconnect (on AWDs) and factory tow package; the Trailhawk boasts a “Selec-Terrain”® traction control system wtih snow, sport, sand/mud, rock, and automatic modes, tow hooks, skid plates, off-road wheels, and special tires.

All Renegades sold in the United States have a nine-speed automatic. (CalTom Note: except those with manual trans, unless this is new news?)

All we know is what it says above, hopefully someone gets a copy of the release and posts it.

For now, we can only surmise that Jeep Inc hopes they have:

"Best in Class"......Marketing...

best in class for what? I just assume that the Renegade isn't the best at everything. What things it specifically best in class at?
Well, in trailhawk trim:

water fording
approach angle
departure angle
breakover
ground clearance
crawl ratio

not in trailhawk form, I believe it has more collision-avoidance features available than the three vehicles listed.
