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!
