2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk: ROAD TRIP!
by Mike Magrath, Features Editor on January 6, 2016
We've had it. Goodbye, city life.
It's time to blow this concrete jungle for a few days, take our 2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk somewhere it belongs, and see America the right way. By car. In winter.
If you've followed the blogs for any period of time, you know this game. We're strapping one of our editors (Travis Langness) into a car, making him drive to the Detroit Auto Show, and then chucking the keys at yours truly to drive it back.
But instead of a set-the-timer, dodge-the-tumbleweeds straight-shot across the Midwest, we're making a proper trip out of this.
We're going to hit the Grand Tetons, Mount Rushmore and more. Probably. Figure it'll be 5,000 miles over 10 days, maybe more of both depending how we feel. This trip isn't about planning, it's about getting outside.
Our Jeep's four-wheel drive is a plus. The sluggish-at-sea-level powerplant probably isn't. The heated seats and steering wheel will be used the whole time.
