When you think about driving in tough snowy conditions in a Jeep, your mind might not immediately go to the Renegade. Sure, the Wrangler (JK and JL) might seem like the obvious choices, and still even the more city-minded options like the Cherokee and Compass may seem like a better option, but the Renegade is fit for any kind of hard work environments. Equipped with a variety of capability features, the Jeep Renegade drives in snow with ease. Follow along with us at Southtown Chrysler as we go over what makes the Renegade excel in the snow!
Jeep Renegade Off-road Capability
The Jeep Renegade has off-road capability that puts it up with the best of Jeep vehicles, for all types of weather–notably snow. There are two 4x4 systems on the Renegade, getting you the most out of this SUV. Both the Jeep® Active Drive and the Jeep Active Drive Low 4x4 have a rear axle disconnect that only distributes power to the front until the vehicle needs the full 4x4 power, providing excellent fuel economy when possible. Specifically for snow, the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System has a special drive mode just for the condition, along with other modes for sand, mud, and an auto mode. Conquer the snowy Edmonton roads in confidence, in the capable Jeep Renegade.
Jeep Renegade Drive and Handling
You always want to feel in control of your ride, especially when the conditions turn south and snow covers your commuting, errand, and pleasure driving routes. The Renegade has been designed with a stable body, including a McPherson strut front suspension along with an independent rear suspension that cradles the vehicle to a safe and comfortable drive. Along with that, the handling of the vehicle reacts smoothly, so you can maintain control over those slippery and snowy roads.
Jeep Renegade Trailhawk®
If you want Best-in-Class 4x4 capability—and why wouldn’t you when tackling Edmonton’s snow-covered winter months roads—the Trailhawk® trim of the Jeep Renegade is your ticket to the best cold weather functions in the segment. You’ll get exclusive Selec-Terrain® Traction management system modes with a rock mode and Hill Descent Control, for when that snow traction is combined with even tougher elements. This Trail Rated Jeep gives you exceptional ground clearance and skid plates, so not only will you be higher above packed on snow, but they will help lessen possible damage.
