Jeep Renegade 2018 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2018 Latitude 4-door SUV AWD Automatic
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
Built in Italy, the subcompact Renegade looks enticingly cute but is bogged down by a nine-speed automatic that's neither smooth nor responsive. Fuel economy with the 2.4-liter was 24 mpg overall. Handling is uninspiring, and the ride is unremarkable. Idle vibration and an overly touchy brake pedal also mar the driving experience. The Trailhawk version offers a token amount of off-road capability. Wrangler-like open-air driving is possible with the optional removable sunroofs. Optional safety features include forward-collision and lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-path detection. Chrysler's Uconnect infotainment system is available.

Jeep Renegade 2017 Trim Shown: 2017 Trailhawk
Built in Italy, the Renegade is Jeep's first subcompact SUV. It offers traditional Jeep features such as some off-road ability and open-air driving via its large, removable sunroofs. It offers two four-cylinder engines: a 1.4-liter turbo and a 2.4-liter. Most versions will come with a nine-speed automatic, but some front-wheel-drive models can get a six-speed manual. An off-road-worthy Trailhawk tops the range. Optional safety features include forward-collision and lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross path detection, and a backup camera. Chrysler's Uconnect infotainment system is available.
