The Jeep Renegade is a compact SUV that stands by its namesake and specializes in off-road utility. The Renegade also calls back to its roots and comes equipped with a sturdy frame and a solid balance of handling and riding.
The vehicle was built with the modern car buyer in mind. The Jeep Renegade has received only minor updates since its release, such as keyless ignition, high-intensity discharge headlamps, and a 7.0-inch touchscreen on Latitude trims. On the top-level Limited trim, keyless entry is also included.
The Renegade has an impressively smooth, firm, ride and controlled handling. Like all other Jeep vehicles, off-road ability is the Renegade's best selling point. Specifically, its Trailhawk trim is built to maximize trailblazing. With a spacious interior, both drivers and passengers should have ample supply of headroom with solid legroom too.
The Jeep Renegade is in a very crowded market of compact SUVs. With a variety of trims, the Jeep Renegade should be able to provide drivers with flexibility to suit their needs. The Trailhawk has considerable off-road capability, while the Limited may be better-suited for daily use.
Jeep Renegades are powered by a choice of two engines with their own transmission pairings: a turbocharged 1.4L four-cylinder engine with a matching six-speed manual transmission, or a 2.4L four-cylinder engine with a nine-speed automatic transmission. As a recent addition to the Jeep lineup of vehicles, the Renegade comes equipped with features modern car buyers expect, such as Bluetooth connectivity, Sirius integration, and GPS navigation.
