2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk: Need a Light?
by Reese Counts, Vehicle Testing Assistant on March 31, 2016
I was driving our long-term 2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk through Joshua Tree National Park about an hour after sunset when I noticed something new about the Renegade. Whenever I turned the wheel left or right, the corresponding fog light would illuminate, providing a little extra illumination in the direction I was heading.
I've put a number of miles on our Renegade, but this is something I've never noticed. It's a welcome bit of help. The headlights on our Jeep are traditional halogens and, though not bad, can't come close to matching the light provided from modern Xenon or LED headlights.
Those Xenon and LED headlights are also able to swivel, something a halogen can't accomplish as easily. Illuminating the fog lights is a simple solution.
