The new Jeep Renegade is the only vehicle you need to get out and explore almost anywhere. It is compact in size to navigate the tightest routes with ease, yet has plenty of power for tackling tough terrains. Sharp looks and an extensively equipped cabin enhance the attractiveness of this small SUV.
When it comes to design the Renegade is an individual and a talking point in its own right. An almost upright windscreen, flat tailgate and square wheel arches help the vehicle leave a lasting impression. The front section is clearly Jeep, maintaining the recognisable elements of the manufacturer’s range. Large circular headlamps are positioned either side of a slim grille with multiple vertical vents. All-around protection preserves the body should the SUV come into contact with the ground. There are also roof rails, alloy wheels and front fog lights to confirm the model’s off-road status.
Other distinguishing features are the ‘military gas can’-style tail lights which are another nod to the Renegade’s rugged nature. Five can be seated inside the spacious cabin, with space remaining at the back for large amounts of cargo. Dotted throughout the cabin are clever storage areas which hide important items and documents away. Renegade Sport is fitted with satin chrome details and luggage tie-down loops, while the Longitude version provides ambient LED lighting. Limited follows it with premium cloth upholstery and Trailhawk offers tinted windows, all-weather slush mats and a leather-covered shift knob.
Raising your enjoyment to a new high is the Renegade’s multitude of technology. One highlight is the Uconnect infotainment system with a 5” touchscreen display. A built-in Bluetooth® interface connects your phone to the console to take calls as you drive. Audio playback from your chosen compatible mobile device is enabled to keep all occupants entertained.
Simply connect the device via the auxiliary jack or USB port and operate it using controls mounted on the steering wheel. Higher spec models are fitted with a 7” color Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC). Here you can view helpful information on the vehicle’s status, trip details and more to track your driving efficiency.
Off-road performance is just part of what the Renegade has to offer. It is the first in the segment to feature a nine-speed automatic gearbox to partner the engine. The Jeep Active Drive system seamlessly switches between two and four-wheel drive to maintain stability and road-hugging traction. Active Low Drive adds Hill-Descent Control and a crawl ratio to maximize grip on loose terrain. The Selec-Terrain traction control system also allows you to select the required vehicle configuration depending on the road ahead. Under the hood is a 2.4 liter Tigershark engine producing 180hp.
Jeep has included more than 60 separate safety and security features within the Renegade to give you complete confidence no matter where you travel. Optional Forward Collision Warning safeguards you and your passengers by giving a clear warning as you approach an obstacle or other car. If action isn’t taken the system brakes automatically to help avoid a collision. Another intelligent technology is Lane Departure Warning, which alerts you if the vehicle leaves its lane unintentionally. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and its various supporting integrated systems work to keep the Renegade travelling in a straight line.
