Actually, the jalopnik piece says the Prius had 9" ground clearance after modding. The Renegade with trailhawk options has 8.7" and the 2wd Patriot has 8.1" ... and both get lesser fuel economy than the lifted Prius.


See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
