2016 Jeep Renegade - Making Up for Past Mistakes
Previous Jeep attempts at creating a car-like sport utility (crossover) have been hit-and-miss. Mostly miss. Now, with the ruggedly fun little Renegade, they’ve finally hit the mark. This is unmistakably a Jeep, but the fun factor and practicality as a CUV are all there too.
