Winning one award is definitely an achievement and a special occasion but it must feel even sweeter the second time around right? Well this is exactly what happened to the Jeep Renegade which scooped up its second consecutive ‘4×4 of the Year 2017’ awarded by 4×4 Magazine.
This will surely buoy the American brand which is enjoying increased sales of the Renegade with over 16,500 sold to date. The Renegade was also able to scoop up an award in the ‘Mid-Range SUV’ at the same awards category.
“Since winning last year, we are now seeing many more Renegades on the roads here in the UK and in Europe,” says Nigel Fryatt, Editor, 4×4 Magazine. “Admittedly, not all of them are Trailhawk versions, and some are front-wheel drive, yet that merely underlines the importance of this small SUV.
“The Renegade range is comprehensive and every owner is getting a well built, well equipped and surprisingly spacious small SUV. Those that choose four-wheel drive options get a lot more, with the Trailhawk version the absolute master.”
“This has been another very good year for Jeep and for Renegade, rounded off nicely with the top award from a leading 4×4 magazine,” says Damien Dally, head of brand, Jeep UK.
“Growing sales, continual good reports from the media and thousands of happy customers tell us that Jeep has a winning product in Renegade. And the verdict of expert panellists, such as those at 4×4 Magazine, confirms that view. I am delighted that Renegade has been crowned ‘4×4 of the Year’ for the second year running.”
