2017 Jeep Renegade Desert Hawk Limited Edition is celebrating the brand’s legacy of adventure. Showcasing features like off-road rock rails, Jeep Active Drive Low 4x4 System, and an exclusive map hood decal.

Jeep Renegade is a subcompact crossover SUV produced by Jeep. The vehicle was first shown to the public in March 2014 at the Geneva Motor Show, and its mass-production started in late August of that year. Renegade is the first Jeep product to be produced exclusively outside of North America. At one time it was believed that the Renegade would replace the Compass and the Patriot in the Jeep lineup, but the Renegade has been identified by Jeep as being in a smaller class than the MK twins.

According to Auto Express, the Desert Hawk features a number of unique design tweaks. The vehicle is available in four colors, including a Mojave Sand. 17-inch alloy wheels and exclusive bodywork decals are also included. The seats are finished with black leather and fabric upholstery, and they feature Moab desert map logos. The steering wheel is wrapped in leather. The infotainment system comes with a 6.5-inch touchscreen, with Bluetooth, satellite navigation, and live support services. There is also a 7-inch TFT cluster display.

According to Pocket-lint, the 2017 Jeep Renegade Desert Hawk Limited Edition is equipped with a 2.0-liter MultiJet diesel engine. It has 170 horsepower and is paired with a nine-speed automatic gearbox as standard. Desert Hawk also comes with Jeep’s Active Drive Low off-road system with 20:1 crawl ratio.

It comes with Selec-Terrain system that lets you choose from different terrain types including sand and rock. When in sand mode on the Selec-Terrain system, the Desert Hawk maximizes traction above all else.
