Another class-exclusive for the Renegade is the available My Sky open-air roof.  Perfect for that summer day where you just want to feel the air rushing through and get some sun.  This sun roof has another advantage; the panels can be removed and stored away in back letting the driver adjust as the weather dictates.

The Renegade comes with one of Chrysler brand’s biggest developments in years; the nine-speed automatic transmission.  It provides unparalleled efficiency, something that is important in helping younger buyers out at the gas pump.

Off-road or on-road, it is important to see what is going on up ahead.  The Renegade’s class exclusive cornering fog lamps help with increased visibility in harsher conditions, including heavy fog, snow, and rainfall.

As stated before, the Renegade may be small but that hasn’t stopped the engineers from creating one of the most capable small SUVs on the market.  The Renegade proudly wears the Trail Rated badge like the rest of the family and with best-in-class 4×4 capability and its two available Active Drive systems, the Renegade is ready for adventure.
