The Smallest Jeep In The Family Still Has Enough Oomph To Kill Tough Trails

Off-Road

Just in case you needed a car for your Bigfoot quest.

Historically, when boys were in the transition phase from being children to becoming men they were put under different tests according to their culture. For off-road vehicles, this test is Black Bear road in Colorado. The vehicle to be tested happens to be the controversial Jeep Renegade, essentially a Fiat 500L chassis wearing a Jeep Body. On its body are “Trail Rated” badges, and the folks at Motor Trend wanted to see if the car is worthy of these ranks.

Using the various off-roading modes and the Easter eggs strewn across the car, this duo tries the mini-Jeep on some of America’s toughest trails with surprising results.
