Renegade vs. Escape: Off Road Tech

SUVs are meant to be more than just a commuter vehicle to and from your Portland workplace, they’re meant to take you to the great outdoors and beyond with their off-road capability. The Ford Escape comes equipped with AWD Disconnect technology, allowing the system to engage and disengage the AWD feature depending on the traction conditions the system detects. Automatic shut-off of AWD preserves performance efficiency, which may be useful to drivers who only go off-road sporadically. However, if taking the road less traveled is part of who you are, then the Jeep Renegade is the only choice. Not only is the Jeep Renegade Trail Rated – meaning it’s been tested and certified for the toughest off-road terrain and weather conditions – but it also comes with the legendary Jeep 4×4 technology that makes Jeep a leader in off-road prowess. Not only that, but you can purchase a lifted Jeep Renegade for additional off-road ground clearance and you can get Jeep Renegade accessories to aid you on your adventure. When it comes to adventure, there’s no competition for a Jeep 4×4 rated vehicle like the Jeep Renegade.
