The love of adventure and 4x4s have kept their essence afloat after much evolution and the occasional resignation. The off-road philosophy is still present among Italians, despite the constant obstacles exerted by anti-pollution regulations and the special public fixation on SUVs. There have been many changes since 1941 and, eighty years later, Jeep remains true to its vision of the automotive industry as a symbol of strength, authenticity and freedom .
A philosophy followed by the Jeep Renegade 4xe, which combines a 1.3-liter turbo petrol engine with an electric motor located on the rear axle, powered by an 11.4 kWh battery that can be recharged while driving or using a socket. external power, either at home with a normal plug, using the efficient and practical easyWallbox or the more advanced Connected Wallbox, or at a public charging point. On its own, the efficient 1.3-litre turbo engine develops an output of 130 or 180PS, plus the 60PS produced by the electric motor, for a total of 190PS (Limited version) or 240PS (Trailhawk and S). In terms of torque, the electric motor produces 250 Nm, while the combustion engine develops 270 Nm. The combination of an internal combustion engine and the electric unit guarantees extraordinary performance and driving pleasure: acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in approximately 7.5 seconds, top speed of 130 km/h in fully electric mode and up to 200 km/h in hybrid mode.
In fact, this Jeep model includes three trim levels (Limited, S and Trailhawk), all with four-wheel drive (eAWD) and a six-speed automatic transmission, and two power levels: 190 or 240 hp. A wide range of customization options are also available, with up to 18 different exterior colors .
And we cannot think of a better route to take with this model than the one located halfway between two large metropolises such as Madrid and Valencia, the province of Cuenca, which is much more than a place of passage. Its mountains offer spectacular landscapes and natural environments while its towns treasure an artistic heritage with monuments ranging from Roman times to the present day. Whether exploring hard-to-reach areas or enjoying the local cuisine in a town square or downtown Cuenca, the Jeep Renegade 4xe offers the freedom of movement provided by its ‘Zero’ label and its high-performance all-wheel drive .
