Just found this little Q&A where a viewer asks about a more detailed review on a non-Renegade Trailhawk model. Here it is for you to take a look at.

Q: Comment: OK I have seen sooooo many videos on the Trail Hawk capabilities. Can you give us so detail feel and drive of a 1.4L with 6speed manual. Note: I’m not asking for you to go buck wild with it. It’s not a trail hawk but give us it’s limits,driveability, handlings. I drive 80 miles to work one way on I-94 in Michigan. Snow,ice,rain,wind sheer,bumps,dodging pot holes. If the gas mileage is better with a manual over a auto then that might be my choice. A sport with everything I can upgrade on it.

A: Howdy!

I fully agree with you regarding the sheer amount of Jeep Renegade Trailhawk information verses the Sport, Latitude and Limited reviews. We should have a 2015 Jeep Renegade Sport first-dive video review up soon. You can read the written review (here).

Now, that first drive did consist of highway driving, light off-roading and canyon driving. Still, it was a rather brief drive and I am begging Jeep to send us a 1.4 turbo model (Sport and Latitude) along with the Trailhawk and Limited. I need more wheel-time to answer your questions with real-world results.

I suspect the 1.4 turbo will do quite well in Colorado. Remember, the tiny turbo is only available with the six-speed manual transmission, so its overall sales appeal will be limited.

Stay tuned!

So it looks like we will have to wait for a while longer to see the reviews that have been asked for, but at least it looks like said reviews are in the works.

Great heads up of what to expect from them and likely other publications in the not too distant future.

I just hope it's a case of Jeep holding some test drive event for publications so we'll get a wealth of reviews to go through.
