Shortly before the forthcoming Los Angeles Auto Show, Jeep has just announced two stunning special edition trims to debut there. The beige-painted 2017 Renegade Deserthawk and blacked-out 2017 Renegade Altitude models will be completely revealed as the 2017 model year trims to expand the subcompact crossover range. Over the next two months, both bespoke off-roader models are expected to reach showrooms.
The Deserthawk model seems to look even more aggressive boasting the unique Moab map graphics on the hood and rear, rock rails, 17-inch black painted wheels wrapped in Falken Wild Peak A\T tires, and military-styled star decals on the D-pillars. Based on the Renegade Trailhawk, the off-roader is powered by the 2.4-liter Tigershark four cylinder engine to produce 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet or torque. The Deserthawk will be available in four paint options including Black, Anvil, Alpine White and one-off Mojave Sand, exclusive for the trim, along with the Selec-Terrain system to choose the mode required. The base price will run at $29,135.
Having at its heart the Renegade Latitude model, the Altitude crossover is powered by a 2.4-liter four cylinder power unit paired to a nine-speed manual transmission to deliver 180 ponies, or 1.4-litre Multiair Turbo mated to a six-speed gearbox to produce a shade less 160 hp. Although the distinctive model will be offered in a wide range of exterior paints, the central focus in on Gloss Black. Next up are the same blacked-out badging, exterior Metal Diamond accents and 18-inch gloss-black wheels. The base price will start at $23,385.
