Be at the top of your urban adventure game with the Jeep Renegade

October 29, 2021

Going beyond the comfort zone is one of those things in life that’s never easy to do. But once you’ve gone over its limit and see the world you’ve never seen before, it will be a very rewarding experience of renewed self-confidence, the feeling of being in control, the realization that you can be whoever you want to be, and the fact that you’re free!

Man, that first paragraph was deep, huh? But that’s just how it feels when you take the wheel of your life and experience the brave new world in your own epic way! If you have what it takes to be the doer, the dreamer, and the adventurer you’ve always wanted to be, then Jeep Philippines has the perfect ride for you – Say “hi” to the Renegade, a compact SUV for endless adventures in and around the urban jungle.

Proudly launched in the Philippines last year, the Jeep Renegade is slated as the vehicle to help one start out anew in life beyond the comforts. An ideal ride for young professionals, newly-weds, new moms, or anyone wanting to finally get out of the shell and live life to the fullest, the Renegade not only looks the part, it also has what it takes to do the part.

Take for instance its size. At 4,232mm in length, 1,804 in width, and 1,684mm in height, and with a wheelbase that measures 1,570mm, the Jeep Renegade is sized perfectly to take on the challenges of Metro Manila roads with all its cracks, holes, and unevenness, among others.

The Jeep Renegade’s manoeuvrability in the urban jungle is spot on for daily adventures like going to the nearest mall, office building, or even unplanned getaways to places beyond the metro. This claim hold true with James Deakin’s recent drive of the Jeep Renegade. According to him, “It still feels like a jeep. I love the steering wheel and how it feels solid even if it’s small. It’s smooth for the city and is very easy to manoeuver around.”

But that’s James Deakin, a family man with decades of life experiences in and out of the motoring beat. His words carry credible weight, no doubt about that. But since we’re talking about coming out of life’s comfort zones to be whoever we want to be, our team’s Sales and Marketing Director, Erica, a young professional, also has something to say after she took the Renegade for a spin.

As per Erica, “I loved the size and the height of the Jeep Renegade. It’s light, compact, and feels easier to drive around city streets. For a vehicle with a small engine, it’s got just enough power to help the driver in situations like making a quick pass on the highway."

Aside from their driving inputs, the Jeep Renegade features an array of goodies to further enhance driving experience and ownership. That’s because the Renegade also comes with ParkView Rear Back-up Camera and ParkSense Rear Assist System.

Without going overly geeky with the technicalities, these features work in unison to help the driver navigate through tight parking spaces, especially when going in reverse. With these, an extra blanket of safety is applied as the view from the back is displayed on the head unit or infotainment screen, enabling the driver to make intricate corrections to the wheel or step on the brakes if needed to avoid hitting on a something... or someone. This is put to great importance with how parking buildings and lots are designed in most commercial places.

Touching on the infotainment stuff, the Jeep Renegade comes with a 7-inch touch screen head unit, powered by UConnect, and is routed to a 6-speaker audio system. It supports Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay, so your iOS device can be connected to it for communication purposes, as well as music, navigation, and more. To this, Erica added that she especially loved how the UConnect seamlessly linked and sync’d to her phone, providing her with the best driving music playlist to listen to.

Capping off the interior is the Renegade’s dual-pane sunroof. Yes, this small city adventurer even has a sunroof so you can have the best interior lighting available for your convenience and for your “ATM (At The Moment)”social media posts. Being a sunroof, you can fully open it to let in some fresh air when going on trips outside the metro.

Finally, under the hood of the Jeep Renegade is a small 1.4L turbocharged gasoline engine. As pointed out, the motor has enough power (147 hp and 230 Nm of torque) on reserve and ready to be unleashed when needed. Tuned to be a smooth-operator in the city, the power train is mated to a 7-speed dual dry clutch transmission that mechanically spins the front wheels.

The Jeep Renegade is available with a sticker price that starts at P1,490,000 (net of discount), and is available in two variants; the Renegade Longitude and the Renegade Limited. For its latest promo, Jeep Philippines is offering you the privilege to spruce up your Renegade right before it even ventures out of the showroom.

This comes in the form of more bad-ass looking set of LED headlights, fog lights, and daytime running lights that take your Renegade’s “pogi points” up a notch. The lighting upgrade features blacked-out aluminium housing and is designed to be waterproof for challenging weather conditions. The optional LED headlights and fog lights upgrades are available at P47,500 and P8,700 prices, respectively.

Life’s comfort zones are not bad. But they’re only good up to a certain point. There’s more to life that living in the comfortable confines given to you by the people or things you’ve come to know and love. With the inspiration you’ve gained from these people and things that gave color to your life, it’s time for you to add your own color. It’s time for you to be whoever you want to be and go wherever you want to go. It’s time for you to be a renegade in life. And it all starts by driving home the Jeep Renegade.
