Cherokee. The 2015 Renegade offers two advanced and intelligent 4x4 systems. Both
systems can provide up to 100pc of the engine’s available torque to the ground,
through any wheel, for optimal grip.

in a Jeep vehicle – customised to markets around the world to meet a range of
performance and efficiency needs.
