SKF is supplying the FCA Group with solutions for their compact SUV model, the Jeep Renegade. The products being supplied are wheel hub bearing units for front and rear wheels, shock absorber seals, transmission seals and engine seals.

Andrea Reisoli-Matthieu, Strategic Account Manager, Automotive Market says, “We are very happy to be a supplier for the Jeep Renegade and to see the positive response in the market for this model. Whether you are driving on the motorway or off-road, SKF’s solutions play an important role in the Jeep Renegade’s impressive ride and handling experience. In April 2015, FCA officially opened the new Jeep production facility in Goiana, located in the state of Pernambuco in northeast Brazil. SKF is there to support FCA with its local capabilities linked to its global network.”

Every four-wheel drive Jeep Renegade is equipped with Selec-Terrain traction control. This system allows the driver to tune traction settings according to road conditions. The Auto, Snow, Sand and Mud settings are specifically tailored to ensure optimum traction and fuel-efficient operation. SKF’s bearings and seals are designed to meet the robustness and performance requirements of the Renegade, contributing to an efficient, comfortable and smooth driving experience.

SKF is already supplying similar components for the Fiat 500X, which is based on the same platform as the Jeep Renegade. The bearing units and seals are presently supplied from SKF’s factories in Italy, Germany, Korea and Brazil.
