2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk: Fuel Economy Update for June
by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on July 6, 2016
As our 2015 Jeep Renegade rolls into its last month in the fleet, it's well past the typical number of miles we rack up in a year. A big chunk of that was taken care of in its early days as it criss-crossed the country. But its comfortable interior and handy size also made it a popular vehicle for weekend errands and the occasional camping trip.
I'm still pretty impressed by this pint-sized crossover. It rides smoothly, has plenty of room and a comfortable seating position. Even larger-than-average drivers can get comfortable behind the wheel of this Jeep despite its small overall size.
Dan Edmunds gave the Renegade an off-road workout that highlighted this Jeep's capabilities and limitations when it's off the beaten path. And when he wasn't crawling down dirt roads, he took the time to figure out why our Renegade was always pulling to the right.
We'll be wrapping this test up by the end of the month, so expect to see a complete summary of our likes and dislikes in early August.
