At the Geneva Motor Show, Jeep introduced the Renegade—a small SUV that, unlike many other small SUVs, has a 4x4 system that is said to provide off-road capability (there is Jeep Active Drive, a full-time 4x4 system, and Jeep Active drive low, a 4x4 system that offers a 20:1 crawl ratio; there is a disconnecting real axle and power-take-off-unit to provide fuel efficiency when 4x4 isn’t required), a vehicle based off the “small-wide architecture” that’s used for the Fiat 500L, but engineered so that there is the aforementioned off-road capability (which also includes fully independent suspension and the ability to have up to 8.1 in. of wheel articulation and 8.7 in. of ground clearance); a vehicle that Jeep plans to sell in multiple global markets, so it is offering it with 16 different powertrain options, gasoline and diesel, manual and dual dry-clutch automatic, as well as the segment’s first nine-speed automatic; a Jeep that is being built in a Fiat plant in Melfi, Italy—it brought over a group of journalists, including Frank Marcus, technical director at Motor Trend.
