It’s no secret that the 2015 Jeep Renegade has brought a certain adorability to the Jeep lineup that hasn’t been there before. The baby of the Jeep family in multiple senses of the word, this compact crossover is the smallest vehicle Jeep offers, with a look that may make the Jeep faithful scoff. However, while you may be tempted, as some have put it, to “pat it on the head and buy it an ice cream cone,” a recent video series released by Jeep makes it clear that this little guy is an off-roader at heart and a Jeep through and through.

Called “Tales of the Trailhawk,” the videos show a 2015 Renegade Trailhawk edition fly through deep water, tackle the steepest uphill and downhill slopes and carve up sandy dunes as though it were on freshly paved road. Its impressive feats of athleticism and agility highlight Trailhawk-trim features such as hill descent control, Jeep’s Active Drive Low four-wheel drive system, 17-inch alloy wheels, the Selec-Terrain system that lets you tell the Renegade what to prepare for and 0.8-inch lift with off-road suspension. After seeing all these incredible off-road abilities in action, you’ll wonder why anyone would ever doubt the Renegade’s ability to, well, go renegade.

You can see the impressive “Going  Vertical” below and head here for the rest of the Tails of the Trailhawk videos.
