Renegade Sport power

I'm looking at the Jeep Renegade Sport because I need something inexpensive (relatively) to drive on really bad roads and through mountains. Do any of you know about the engine? Will the standard engine do the trick? Or would I need an option for a more powerful engine. Is there even such an animal? Thanks very much.

I have the Latitude 1.4 Turbo with manual transmission and I can tell you I'm very happy with the power output. We live at a ski resort so our drive from town is all up hill for about 9 miles. The Renegade has plenty of power to go up the mountain road, even fully loaded with 4 of us. Soon as it hits between 2500 and 3500 RPM you can really feel the turbo boost in HP and Torque! Very fun to drive!
