The Sporty 2017 Jeep Renegade

By Ryan Everson | May 9th, 2017

Serious off-road capability, check. Seating for five adults, check. A choice between manual or automatic transmission, check. What more could you want from the new 2017 Jeep Renegade? This subcompact crossover provides an exciting driving experience whether you’re cruising through downtown or crawling through the trails. And with four trim levels and two powertrain combinations, you can find the Renegade that matches your driving style and needs, and we know you’ll jump at any chance to get behind the wheel.

Under the hood is a 1.4-liter turbocharged MultiAir engine for the manual transmission drivers; it produces healthy 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque and is EPA-rated at 24 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. Those who prefer an automatic transmission will enjoy the 2.4-liter Tigershark engine, rated at a respectable 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft. With its nine-speed transmission, the 2.4-liter Renegade returns a lovely 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway with front-wheel drive and 21 city, 29 highway with all-wheel drive. All that power makes commuting easy.

     

Inside the Renegade, you’ll find best-in-class interior volume and excellent choices for seat configurations including a fold-flat front passenger seat so you can handle whatever life throws your way. And when you take a break from rock crawling out on the trails, let the fresh air in with available
My Sky® dual-panel roof, which features secure two panels that are fully lockable or removable and stored flat in a height-adjustable rear cargo area. This interior is built around making your drive comfortable and convenient with available leather-wrapped steering wheel, personalized instrument cluster configurations, and the Jeep Uconnect infotainment system featuring hands-free smartphone accessibility.

But the convenience doesn’t just include the comfy seats and dual climate controls. You can drive at ease knowing Jeep made your safety a priority and you have less to worry about with all the helpful active safety features available on the Renegade. With the available collision warning, rain-sensing wipers, lane-departure warning, and adaptive cruise control that will even come to a complete stop in traffic, you can drive with confidence. Your commute will be a breeze in any condition with options like this.
