Stunt was attempted by Olympic snowboarder Aimee Fuller.
Jeep is playing up its go anywhere attitude by becoming the first automaker to drive a vehicle up and down an Olympic-standard white water course.
The stunt was conducted at the Cardiff International White Water Center in the United Kingdom when Olympic snowboarder Aimee Fuller used a Jeep Renegade Trailhawk to drive up and down an 820 foot long white water course. This wasn't an easy challenge as the Renegade had to battle water flowing at a rate of more than 4.4 tons per second.
According to Fuller, “I’d never done anything like this before so when I arrived and saw the power and heard the noise of the water I was nervous." However, "Once I had driven into the course and got through the first few rapids the car felt great, really in control, and I started to relax and enjoy it."
As a refresher, the Renegade Trailhawk is an off-road focused model that features an increased ride height and special skid plates. The crossover also boasts a Selec-Terrain system with exclusive Rock mode as well as a Jeep Active Drive Low system with a 20:1 crawl ratio.
In the United States, the model is powered by a 2.4-liter MultiAir four-cylinder engine that produces 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. It is connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission and a standard four-wheel drive system.
