As expected, just before the official debut of one of the most important auto events of the year – the upcoming 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, debuting November 18th – a lot of carmakers are already preparing their new rides and concepts by launching official teasers, videos and short presentations with the aforementioned models.

For these price tags, you will get two amazing Jeeps with amazing driving capabilities for off-road conditions and not only.
The 2017 Jeep Renegade Deserthawk is set to be “inspired by the desert`s extreme conditions”, as the carmaker strongly affirms, standing on the Renegade Trailhawk and coming with the bespoke hood and rear body panel decals, rock rails, Trailer Tow Group, as well as the one-off 17-inch black wheels.
The cabin of the new Deserthawk is also tweaked with black leather seats, Light Frost stitching, new floor mats or cargo tray mat, while adding the latest mechanics – the Jeep Active Drive Low with 20:1 crawl ratio; 8.7 inches of ground clearance, skid plate, Selec-Terrain system with the Rock mode; Hill-descent Control; 2,000-lb towing capacity and much more.
