It would make sense to just put the 3.6L Pentastar, found in many other Chrysler vehicles, in the new Renegade and call it the SRT version (or something of the sort) and equip it to the 6-speed manual that is already found in the Wrangler. It could be a capable, powerful, unibody, mini-Unlimited Wrangler
hoonmobile off-roader for budget-conscious buyers.
EDIT: I know the Pentastar may be too big for the engine bay, but this is America. We figure it out.
