The top-spec Trailhawk will roll on 17-inch wheels and has 205mm of wheel articulation combined and 220mm of ground clearance. A towing pack boosts capacity to 900kg with the 2.4-litre petrol engine or 1500kg with the MultiJet 2.0‒litre diesel.
The Renegade is being built at the Melfi factory alongside the Fiat 500X. It will compete with the VW Tiguan, Nissan Juke and Renault Captur.
