Jeep releases Renegade Dawn of Justice special edition in time for the movie - w/video


I like special-edition models of regular production vehicles and I'm not alone, since most manufacturers can't crank them out fast enough. But not all "specials" are created equally. The 2016 Jeep Renegade Dawn of Justice (DOJ) special edition seems to be one of the "good ones." The Renegade DOJ adds to the Renegade Latitude 4x4 and comes standard with the 2.4-liter Tigershark engine with MultiAir2, nine-speed automatic transmission, Jeep Active Drive 4x4, Selec-Terrain with four drive modes and a variety of features. The Renegade DOJ is available in Granite Crystal or the new Carbon Black paint with gloss black exterior accents (including the 18-inch wheels and a two-tone gloss black roof with the Granite Crystal paint). On the inside, the blacked-out theme continues with a black interior, black premium cloth seats and High Gloss Black finishes with Metal Diamond accents. Other equipment includes the ParkSense rear backup camera and the Popular Equipment Group (which includes remote start, power driver’s seat, and dual-zone automatic temperature control). A well-equipped Jeep for $26,250 (plus taxes, license, options, fees and destination)...wow. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice opens on March 25th and the 2016 Renegade Dawn of Justice special edition should be at your local dealer before the movie opening. A good-looking, well-equipped sub-compact crossover for not a lot of bucks. For more information, check out the informative release and the commercial featuring Ben Affleck (Bruce Wayne) and the Renegade DOJ after the jump. Enjoy!

The interior is new with the full-color head-up display, Audi virtual cockpit, the available Bang & Olufsen® 3D Advanced Sound System, three-zone climate control, standard power moon roof, Audi drive select, and much more in keeping with the expansion of new tech and features from Audi's flagship A8 to its smaller siblings. The 2.0-liter Turbo Four is updated for '17 to produce 252 hp and 273 lb.-ft. of torque and the seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission has been upgraded as well. The A4 will come in three trim levels, Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige with prices starting at $37,300 (plus taxes, license, fees, options, destination) for the well-equipped Premium to $45, 900 for the loaded Prestige. quattro all-wheel drive will add another $2,100. The 2017 Audi A4 is a nice luxury/sport sedan that just got a lot nicer, sportier, and more luxurious. The '17 A4 will be available in the Spring. Check with your local dealer for availability.
