Jeep Announced Two Stunning Trims Ahead of the 2016 LA Auto Show

Shortly before the forthcoming Los Angeles Auto Show, Jeep has just announced two stunning special edition trims to debut there. The beige-painted 2017 Renegade Deserthawk and blacked-out 2017 Renegade Altitude models will be completely revealed as the 2017 model year trims to expand the subcompact crossover range. Over the next two months, both bespoke off-roader models are expected to reach showrooms.

The Deserthawk model seems to look even more aggressive boasting the unique Moab map graphics on the hood and rear, rock rails, 17-inch black painted wheels wrapped in Falken Wild Peak A\T tires, and military-styled star decals on the D-pillars.  Based on the Renegade Trailhawk, the off-roader is powered by the 2.4-liter Tigershark four cylinder engine to produce 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet or torque. The Deserthawk will be available in four paint options including Black, Anvil, Alpine White and one-off Mojave Sand, exclusive for the trim, along with the Selec-Terrain system to choose the mode required. The base price will run at $29,135.
Having at its heart the Renegade Latitude model, the Altitude crossover is powered by a 2.4-liter four cylinder power unit paired to a nine-speed manual transmission to deliver 180 ponies, or 1.4-litre Multiair Turbo mated to a six-speed gearbox to produce a shade less 160 hp. Although the distinctive model will be offered in a wide range of exterior paints, the central focus in on Gloss Black. Next up are the same blacked-out badging, exterior Metal Diamond accents and 18-inch gloss-black wheels. The base price will start at $23,385.
