Has anyone else seen this? Apparently the Renegade Trailhawk is a better off-roader than the Cherokee. It's also better looking and gets better mpg. Did Jeep just sacrifice the Cherokee for good?

better approach, departure, and overhang angles do not necessarily make it a better off-roader. They help but doesn't the Cherokee trailhawk have a lock rear diff? Pretty sure it does and the Renegade does not. so i'd say the cherokee is better overall offroad because of that and the V6 (if you choose that engine on your cherokee) gives you more HP but more importantly more low end torque.

True dat! It might be possible some day though that an aftermarket could come out with a locking differential.
