Boldride has reviewed the 2015 Renegade Trailhawk model, and they give it two big thumbs up.
The Renegade Trailhawk was able to get through the off-road course just as easily as the 2015 Wrangler that the reviewer drove recently. The suspension held up great for him, and the approach and departure angles are generous.the Trailhawk boasts nearly an inch of additional ground clearance (8.7 inches total), four skid plates, three tow hooks, five different traction control settings, all-terrain tires on 17-inch wheels, and Jeep’s Active Drive Low 4×4 system, which totes a 20:1 crawl ratio. Sure, it’s a laundry list, but the recipe works.
The Renegade Trailhawk runs on a 2.4-liter engine mated to a nine-automatic transmission. It creates 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque.
