What are the 2020 Jeep Renegade off roading capabilities?

People that participate in off road driving know that there are some factors they need to consider when purchasing the right vehicle. They need to ensure that the vehicle has the capability to handle the conditions. The new 2020 Jeep Renegade has plenty of off roading capabilities to make it a prime choice for going off roading. So, what are these capabilities? Read on to why this model is one of the best off roading vehicles.

What makes the Jeep Renegade a good vehicle for off road driving?

The first thing that makes the Jeep Renegade a good vehicle for off road driving is the body itself. The front fascia is curled up allowing for a better front-end clearance and the ability to take on higher approach angles. The Jeep Renegade is made with a stiff body structure, a strong steering system and a nine-speed automatic transmission. These parts allow for a powerful ride and handling when driving on any type of road.

The next qualifier is the two available 4×4 systems, Jeep Active Drive and Jeep Active Drive Low. These systems are able to switch between two-wheel and four-wheel drive by using a rear axle disconnect system. Another system that helps with off roading is Hill Descent Control. This system monitors throttle, speed and braking when driving down steep slopes. This allows for a slow and smooth descent without gravity taking over.

The last qualifier is that the Jeep Renegade has the Trail Rated® badge which means it has several approved off roading abilities. These abilities include traction, water fording, maneuverability, articulation and ground clearance.
