2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk: Simple Gauges With a Twist
by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on September 3, 2015
Simple, easy-to-read gauges shouldn't be a reason to pat our 2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk on the back. All vehicles should be blessed with such dials. But in this era of jamming as much info as possible into small spaces, the instrument panel in this Jeep is a welcome sight.
The analog dials are perfect: Big, simple, uncluttered. Jeep even went the extra creative mile with the mud splash redline on the tachometer. The rest of the panel is electronic but the important stuff like engine temperature and fuel get their own dedicated spots.
Need more info? You can scroll through all kinds of stuff in the center display using the buttons on the steering wheel. It's a useful setup that allows you to simplify things with basic information or show the transmission fluid temperature should the need arise. Not a bad layout for a vehicle in this class.
