Jeep will use ‘Racing Mode’ on new 2016 Hummer, new 2016 Jeep Renegade
Jeep has announced the “Racing mode” will be the default setting on the next-generation Renegade and all four-door Jeep models from 2020.
The announcement comes amid the company’s push to rebrand the Wrangler as a sports car, with a name change to the Renegade.
The company has already unveiled the new Renegade, which will have a base price of $37,900 with a three-door, four-passenger package and $44,600 with the four-wheel drive.
In the future, Jeep will introduce a new Wrangler and then the Renegades will be available as the new sport/performance vehicle family, with the latter becoming the flagship of the Renegada line-up.
A new Jeep Renegades concept was unveiled last week at the Geneva Motor Show, with some new images of the new vehicle.
Jeep has also released the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler, which is being developed at the Michigan Assembly Plant.
It will sport a 5.7-liter V8 engine and be powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost petrol engine that can produce 500 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque.
It will feature a front-wheel-drive configuration with an automatic transmission.
The 2018 Jeep Renegadas will be based on the 2017 Jeep Renegore.
This will be a new vehicle lineup for Jeep, which had been on the brink of launching a new sports SUV or crossover for the last few years.
According to Jeep, the new Wranglers will be sold in the United States, Europe and Australia, while the Renegads will be offered as the crossover or sports vehicle family.
The 2018 Wrangler is expected to hit dealerships in 2019.
