The car fits my lifestyle

In love and happy

2016 Jeep Renegade Melinda Figueroa - Orem, UT 11/04/2017

It fits my lifestyle perfectly and it was like new when purchased at CarMax. Very low milleage, perfection when it comes to road trips and I am prepared for Utah winters!

Love Jeep!

2016 Jeep Renegade Amanda Burich - Urbandale, IA 04/29/2017

It's a dependable brand, versatile and not bad on gas mileage. Roomy inside as well.

2016 Jeep Renegade Overview

A relatively new member of the Jeep family, the Jeep Renegade is a crossover SUV that's been in production by Fiat Chrysler since 2014. This five-door SUV was first rumored to be a replacement for the Compass and Patriot models, but this has not proven to be the case. For drivers looking to enjoy the utility and ruggedness of a Jeep without the big and boxy size, this subcompact crossover may be a great and practical choice.

2016 Jeep Renegade History

The 2016 Jeep Renegade is only the second model year of this vehicle to be released, so it really hasn't seen a great deal in the way of changes just yet. Still, a few of the upgrades and changes in the 2016 Renegade as opposed to the 2015 release include:

  • premium audio option (Beats brand)
  • automatic wipers in some trims
  • limited and special editions available

As far as trim options go, the 2016 Renegade is available in three distinct trims: the Latitude (base), Renegade Limited, and Trailhawk. In addition to trim options, there are also a number of different package options that can be added to the Renegade, such as safety packages that include blind-spot monitoring and cross-traffic alert features.

How It Drives

The 2016 Renegade really shines, like most Jeeps, when it's taken off the beaten path. This is especially true in models with included four-wheel drive. Specifically, the innovative Selec-Terrain feature is great for intuitive handling on all kinds of different terrain, ranging from sand and snow to mud and rock. Furthermore, drivers enjoy the extremely sharp handling and smooth ride offered by the 2016 Renegade.

For those who go all-out for the sporty Trailhawk trim option, an Active Drive Low feature is also included that will make navigating even the roughest terrain easy and fun. In fact, the 2016 Renegade Trailhawk was awarded best-in-class in off-road capabilities for this reason!

Used 2016 Jeep Renegade Value

When it comes to value and cost effectiveness, the Jeep Renegade fares quite well, but maybe not as well as some of its competitors. Crossover SUVs are very popular right now, and many options are on the market that may deliver a bigger bang for your buck. These include the more affordable Kia Soul, the Nissan Juke, and the Mazda CX-3. The fact that the Renegade only comes with a 60,000-mile warranty (compared to the 100,000-mile warranty that is standard in most of its competitors) hurts the overall value of the 2016 Renegade. Still, the affordability of this vehicle's base trim and its overall practicality still make this a solid purchase for many.

Design & Performance

While the Renegade is still a relatively new release for Jeep, a few design features give the 2016 Renegade a lot of character for a crossover SUV. Aside from the distinctive seven-slot grille and rugged design that you'll find in most Jeep vehicles, the Renegade also features:

  • high ground clearance
  • distinct personality
  • sporty design in Trailhawk trim
  • standard roof rails and fog lights

One area of performance where the 2016 really lacks, however, is in fuel economy. Compared to similar crossover SUVs on the market, the fuel rating is very lackluster. Depending on the specific trim and engine option with which your Renegade is equipped, you'll likely only see between 24 and 27 mpg combined.

Powertrain & Engine

There are essentially two engine options available in the 2016 Jeep Renegade: a base, turbocharged 1.4-liter engine with four cylinders, 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. This standard engine also comes with a six-speed manual transmission. Available as an upgrade on the Latitude trim and standard on the Limited and Trailhawk trims is a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine with 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. This engine is available with either four-wheel drive or front-wheel drive and comes with a nine-speed automatic transmission.

All 2016 Renegades with four-wheel drive come with selective drive features that allow for greater control over just about any terrain imaginable. Furthermore, depending on the package, the more powerful engine can tow up to 2,000 pounds.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The 2016 Jeep Renegade is full of character both inside and out. Some features drivers really enjoy inside this vehicle include:

  • upgraded Uconnect infotainment system
  • 6.5-inch touchscreen with smartphone integration
  • Wi-Fi hotspot availability
  • ample headroom and legroom

Drivers will also enjoy a generous 50.8 cubic feet of rear storage space with rear seats folded down, as well as comfortable and power-adjustable driver's seating. It is worth noting that the base trim of the Renegade does not come standard with air conditioning or cruise control, which may surprise some.
