Never sold in the U.S. though, right?
Edit: Wiki says it was only sold in Mexico.
I think you underestimate how many Jeeps are taken offroad.
JK has a scissor jack as far as I know. AEV even makes a fancy base for it, and for some reason it costs $55.
My $.02, I like the rear mounted...
The only 2 door SUV I would actually buy is a 70 series Troopy.
No rear diff lock on the Renegade.
Yeah, that's what I'm wondering. Like a couple users have said, it could just be a software thing :thumbdown:
Allpar seems to have the skinny on the 4wd system:
So I was correct earlier in the thread. They are calling it "4x4 Low", but really it's just an alternate final drive ratio, and not...
Can you elaborate on this? I know nothing about 4 point harnesses.
That explains the "4wd Lock" button. Also note the crawl ratio is only 20:1, vs the Cherokee's ~ 55:1 This means the Renegade does not have the same 4x4 system as the Cherokee. Lame.
Edit: The 9...
IF it has the rear differential lock, then it'll be super capable. I'm guessing this probably will not have the locker. Although it would probably be an easy swap from the Cherokee :thumbup:
Probably a good assumption :thumbup: I guess my first point still stands though, why is there a "4x4 lock" button, when the Cherokee does not have this button?
Dude, read the thread. 9 speed from the Cherokee.
Interesting. I wonder if the vehicle Four Wheeler was testing was malfunctioning. If the front and rear driveshafts are indeed coupled together like in the press release, obviously the driver...
I thought so too, until I read this article in Four Wheeler Magazine. Super lame. I wonder if it's just a calibration/software change, or if it's hardware limited.
The button configuration for the 4wd is interesting; it's slightly different than the Cherokee's. The "4wd Lock" button is new. I wonder if this is to mechanically lock the front axles together....
Sort-of on topic since this pertains to the Renegade as well:
This is actually not possible. The Cherokee doesn't have a traditional low range like the Grand Cherokee does. There's a set of...
That's because the CVT simulates the low range. It's not a traditional low range found in the Wrangler or even the new Cherokee.
I actually did have to double check this before I posted. Edmunds is saying 102.8" for the Fiat 500L and 103.7" for the XV Crosstrek.
XV Crosstrek may be a competitor too, no? Rugged looks, increased ground clearance, good AWD, very similar wheelbase, 5 door.
