Posted: 24th March 2015

The UK press launch for the all-new Jeep Renegade took place at Winton House throughout last week. The versatility of the new Renegade is being tested out on a specially designed, off-road, 4×4 course by journalists from the automotive press from across the UK.

James Maynard, General Manager at Winton House, says: “We’ve constructed a technical, off-road course in woodland close to the house to try out the 4x4s on demanding terrain. Visitors have been testing their driving skills on steep, slippery slopes, across water features and even over piles of logs.“As a hospitality venue, Winton hosts a range of entertaining and challenging activities in the gardens and grounds, from miniature hovercraft and laser tag, to clay pigeon shooting and highland games. We now plan on running other 4×4 events using the new course.”

Damien Dally from Jeep UK adds: “Jeep has designed a fabulous off-road course which makes full use of the grounds at Winton. Most importantly, it has been very well received by our guests from the media.“Winton House is a lovely and inspiring venue which is perfectly suited to an event like the Jeep Renegade launch.”

The new Jeep Renegade has been designed for people who are young at heart and want to get the most out of life. It is expected to be particularly popular with mountain bikers, snowboarders and other outdoor enthusiasts. The Renegade is Jeep’s first entry into the small SUV segment. It is also the first Fiat Chrysler Automobiles car to be jointly developed by Italian and American engineers, and the first Jeep to be built in Europe but sold in the USA.
