Jeep has launched a new, limited edition ‘Desert Hawk’ Renegade with a dramatic stunt in which top British Sandboarder, Alex Bird, became the first in his sport to be towed by a car in the UK. Bird reached speeds of up to 40mph, as he performed several stunts and jumps, negotiating 90-foot sand banks. Powered by a 170 bhp 2.0-litre diesel, the Renegade tackled the sand dunes with the help of standard-fit all-wheel drive, an 8.7-inch ground clearance and a dedicated ‘Sand Mode’. On sale now the Desert Hawk starts at just under £29k OTR.
The new Jeep Renegade has gone on sale in the UK. The Renegade is Jeep's first entry into the small SUV segment and is available with two or four-wheel drive. The Renegade also features a choice of six petrol and diesel powertrain combinations as well debuting a new nine-speed gearbox. Prices start at just under £17,000 for the 1.6-litre petrol to £27,995 OTR for the 4-wheel drive 2.0-litre diesel Trailhawk 9 with Speed Automatic
