Went for a ride today and my buddy took his new Renegade XC. I was impressed! Lots of power for a 4wd, the power steering is awesome, the engine braking was very nice, and the shock were kick ass as well. I do think that it weighs quite a bit more than the published weight though. The only thing that I didn't like was the $$$$, wow! But you start looking at all the extras that you would eventually buy and it is a good deal if you were going to make all the additions that the XC comes with. It is a sweet ride!!!!
