No start/stop.

You have keyless entry and key start. (not sure if this one has remote start)
Or proximity entry and push start button and remote start.

From what I can tell, I haven't seen any with it as of yet. I know the 6cyl Cherokees have it and customers have been giving me mixed reviews on it.

I was able to order a Trailhawk with Remote Start System (XBM) and Passive Entry / Keyless Go (GX4). Are these options not available on the other models?

This is in the US.

Those are available on other trims, I am talking about an engine stop/start system where when stopped the engine turns off, then back on quickly when brake is released.

Ah, my bad - I guess I've never seen that functionality before. What is it used for? Fuel economy?

Stop Start

My wife's LR-4 has it and my Porsche Boxster S has it. It seems kind of silly--how much gas can it really save? Fortunately in the Porsche it can be disabled. The Land Rover requires you to disable it each time you start the engine (goes with the circa 2008 electronics in this 2015 vehicle). My '14 V-6 GC does not have it.

About 10% is saved with these systems in real world tests

I would have a problem about siting at a red light on a cold rainy night with the wipers, heating and head lights on with the motor stopped. Then sucking more power from the battery to re-start the car. The alternator works hard under these conditions above with out stopping the motor.

All stop/Start systems monitor the battery charge level they normally need the battery to have at least 80% charge or it wont operate and if the engine is off say when you are sat at lights it will fire the engine up before so engage it if this charge drops below the set parameters.:)

Just turn it off if you don't like it. I never use it.

Rumour has it the Renegade will be getting a 48V KERS drivetrain with the new 2.0 engine.
