    Has anyone seen the information on the Compass Trailhawk? Looks pretty sharp, will have .3 inches more clearance than our renny trailhawks. Got towhooks and stuff. I know our Rennys will have better angles, but think this will damage the renegade sales? Think it will out work the Renny? Post your opinions here!

    Nah. Renegade looks different than all the pack of small SUVs! Being different is a cool thing. The compass looks like the rest of new crossovers out there.

    Indeed I'm not a big fan of the scrunched up Grand Cherokee look. However it will be as capable as the Renny with a little bit worse angles. With the same drivetrain and similar price point. It has to make me wonder about the Rennys long term future in the lineup!

    Due to size, and its starting cost. The Renny is now the entry level vehicle at Jeep. Taking the spot that the patriot and compass once held :O

    IMO aftermarket part suppliers will also help carry the load on how these jeeps going further and better from other crossovers. Without their help, consumers will get bored eventually.

    As nice as the compass is, I think it'll still be the rental queen of the lineup. The thing just doesn't speak to me the way renny and Wrangler do. So while they may have a off roady trim on (literally) every Jeep, some of them will be very rare to see off road.

    But we will have to see when consumers get it. Besides, I have a little part of old compass stuck in my mind.. hopefully we can all ignore the old

    I just want the Renegade to be better basically haha. I don't want the Renegade to become the blacksheep, or the buttend of the jeep line up jokes.

    Sorry to disappoint you Lawrence, but Renegade is - the black sheep of the jeep family (in a good way I hope). It's the "rebel" who dis-obeyed the "protocol" and ran away from the pack with an attitude. That makes it more exciting because it's uniqueness and "out of the box" design and ability will stand out above the rest and so it will not end up as a joke. That is why renegades are being talked about by the majority of cookie-cutter small SUV crossovers. Just look at them compared to yours... they all look a like and yours is different... that is why you are the renegade :)

    Oh yeah well I get that! I love that about them. I just saw the bigger tires on the compass trailhawk and all the fixins and got all salty because I didn't want jeep to downplay the renny hahah. Its a silly thought but none the less I thought I would share.

    My only beef about this is because the wheel-well can not take 30" KO2.

    I feel the exact same way. I have a TJ. Saw the Renegade and had to get one!

    Coming from a KK, & owning only Wranglers prior, I like the look & feel of the Renegade over the Compass or Patriot. Past Compass's looked so cheap to me, & even though the new Trailhawk version is definitely looking better, i cant help but still look at them & think cheap. I do wish Jeep would have put the 6sp manual in the Trailhawk Renny w/ the 2.4L. But I'm learning to love the 9s auto.
