Drove a Trail Hawk yesterday and was quite impressed. I've been driving a Trail Rated Patriot since 2007 (actually 4 of them) and was wondering how much smaller the interior of the Renegade would be. It's not as small as I'd feared. The acceleration was actually better than my 2.4 liter engine Patriots and the ride was very good. No hobby horsing from the shorter wheelbase and it felt very stable. I've contacted the salesman that set up the test drive with a listing of just what I want in the way of options and color for a new Trail Hawk. I think I'm going to love this car.
