Jeep is actually continuing to expand the Renegade subcompact crossover SUV type line with the addition of two completely new trims: the Altitude in addition to the Deserthawk. Both will formally be unveiled at the 2016 Los Angeles auto show next week.
Like different Jeep products to previously wear the Altitude badge, the 2017 Jeep Renegade Altitude lands on the lot that has a host of outdoor in addition to Internal features dolled up in Gloss Black. This specific includes the crossover’s 18-inch wheels, badging, seven grille rings, in addition to taillamp surrounds. Although the Altitude is actually available in a variety of colors, the Internal is actually limited to just one—black.

All-wheel drive is actually available with either powertrain for an extra $2000.

Despite its name being condensed to one word, the Deserthawk wears the same Moab map on its hood, U.S. Army–style star decals on its D-pillars, in addition to black-painted, 17-inch wheels of which can be found on the European Desert Hawk.
Limited to four colors, including the Deserthawk-exclusive Mojave Sand, This specific Jeep builds on the off-road-themed, $27,640 Renegade Trailhawk. The Deserthawk’s higher cost ($29,135) includes black leather seats with contrasting stitching, the Trailer Tow Group (a four-pin wiring harness in addition to Class III hitch), rock rails, dual-zone automatic climate control, power front seats, a proximity key with push-button start, in addition to more. Unlike the diesel-powered Desert Hawk, the four-wheel-drive Deserthawk relies on the Trailhawk’s 2.4-liter four-cylinder in addition to nine-speed automatic.
