UNCOMPROMISED CONTROL

The Renegade’s Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI) rear suspension keeps its wheels moving straight up and down, eliminating scrub and camber change. Competitive suspension systems cause the wheels to move in a butterfly motion over bumpy terrain, reducing tire-to-ground contact. But the Renegade remains predictable, giving you better all around control.
