Can a Wrangler SUV be made from a Jeep Renegade crossover?April 21, 2019
The owner of the American crossover tried to answer this question, who, as he says, after some improvements, still managed to get great opportunities of the Wrangler SUV. The guys from the YouTube channel Fast Lane published a video in which this car is reviewed in detail.
Someone Devin Arnold, who owns the crossover Jeep Renegade in a powerful version of the Trailhawk (car of 2017), decided to modify it to such an extent that he probably will be able to compete with a full-fledged SUV Jeep Wrangler.
The guys from the YouTube channel Fast Lane met Devin Arnold to see how his highly modernized crossover Jeep Renegade should be. The car is equipped with a 2.5-inch lift, a Falken Wildpeak 16-inch all-terrain tires, a pair of lightweight crossbars, a large roof rack with a built-in ladder. Thin blue touches appear around the exterior and interior of the car to help further distinguish this non-standard Renegade from its counterparts.
The power plant on this all-wheel drive crossover, however, remains mostly stock. Under the hood, as before, there is a 2.4-liter 180-hp engine connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission – this gearbox, Arnold notes, as one of the main advantages of a small crossover.
On the question of why the engine was not changed, Devin Arnold said that the current crossover Jeep Renegade performed by Trailhawk 2019 model year, equipped with a new 1.3-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine. The power difference is only 3 hp.
