o The new 2015 Jeep® Renegade aims to bring the Jeep brand’s off-road reputation to a new segment, at a new price point, the Toronto Star said. The Renegade has off-road capability equivalent to other Jeep products, but it also had to provide on-road comfort, easy handling, good fuel consumption and all the amenities urban customers expect, the Star said. The on-road side of the equation is covered with independent strut suspension at both ends to soak up the big bumps and provide rapid-fire response, the article said. Similar-sized, -priced and -specced vehicles don’t have the off-road cred: All of those would kill to have the image that Renegade gains from its Jeep heritage, the Star said.
