Jeep Renegade Test 2018

Overview: When Jeep erste put one des its many respected historic nameplates, Renegade, top top a big-eyed crossover that veritably defines ns term “cute ute,” traditionalists nearly took trost arms, especially when they learned it would be built bei Italy, not the united States. But ns boxy little wagon has actually proven to be right-sized zum the times, popular—and loaded v personality. Plus the Trailhawk model, v its typical four-wheel-drive system, short range/crawl ratio, underbody skid plates, and red tow hooks, actually ist decent off-road.

As before, die Renegade zu sein offered with a choice von a 160-hp turbocharged 1.4-liter inline-four engine, paired to a six-speed hands-on transmission, or a normally aspirated 2.4-liter inline-four through 180 horsepower that comes just with a nine-speed automatic. The 2.4-liter is in option on Sport, Latitude, und Altitude modell but is standard on ns Limited and Trailhawk. Four-wheel drive ist available through both powertrains weil das $1500. Ns base combo of turbo four und manual transmission is pretty good, and we’re always glücklich to discover a manual transmission offered, particularly here, where its an accurate shifter throws and character suit this Jeep’s personality. Ns 2.4-liter is decent yet not viel to brag about.


What’s New: Some redesigned interior components, consisting of relocated Selec-Terrain controls and USB ports the free nach oben a bit an ext front-row warehouse space an the 2018 Renegade. Frankly, though, only owners des a 2017 Renegade might notice ns difference. A back-up camera now comes conventional on every versions.

Also freshened zum 2018 are die infotainment systems. Die base Sport modell employs a 5.0-inch touchscreen v voice control und Bluetooth connectivity, und Sport buyers kann sein upgrade kommen sie a 7.0-inch touchscreen system with apfel CarPlay and Android auto that comes conventional on ns Renegade Latitude, Limited, and Trailhawk trim levels. In addition, Jeep’s 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system with navigation is optionally available on every but ns base Sport, as is a dual-pane glass stärke sunroof, which zu sein new zum 2018. Speaking von trick roofs, ns Renegade’s nifty My sky roof system, consisting of two removable panels, now kann sein be notified on every models. Some new colors, inner fabrics, and trim treatments round out ns updates weil das 2018.

What we Like: With a file this boxy, freundin know cargo space möchte be impressive, and the Renegade actions out as one von the roomiest bei its segment. Yet what the Renegade’s looks don’t tell you is that die steering ist responsive und the ride ist quite good weil das something this small. Ns optional My skies roof’s removable panels over die front and rear seats would be kühl enough even without die front panel gift able kommen sie power rückseitig on tracks favor a timeless sunroof, but it walk that, too.


The upgraded inner materials an the 2018 modell help class up ns Renegade’s whimsically draft cabin there is no diminishing that character. Ns optional to win audio system is another boon to ns youth industry that die Renegade targets through reasonable precision.

We deshalb get a kick out of the countless Easter eggs—motifs verbunden with Jeeps the designers have hidden around ns vehicle ostensibly zum owners to discover over time—such as the jerrycan pattern the spans ns My sky roof panels, a relief map von Moab etched into the rubber center-console liner, and the Jeep challenge found in the centers von the head- und taillamp assemblies.

What we Don’t Like: However tidy its handling may be, die Renegade zu sein surprisingly heavy. That weight in turn hampers acceleration—the quickest Renegade we’ve ever before tested fight 60 mph in 8.7 seconds, and most have taken much more than nine seconds. Die mass deshalb impedes fuel economy, with die Renegade’s epa ratings well below average for the subcompact-crossover segment. Die heaviest Renegade des all, ns off-road-oriented Trailhawk model, turns bei long-ish braking distances, too, in part because des its dirt-capable tires. Vehicle drivers may find themselves flooring the gas often, and when the Renegade zu sein equipped with ns 2.4-liter engine, ns resulting sound ist coarse und unpleasant. While die Renegade’s design looks cool and convincingly Jeeplike, the upright windshield translates right into lots des wind noise, und from die driver’s seat the roof pillars around die windshield und rear home window appear as thick as tree trunks. Finally, with oberteil trim level creeping into die mid-$30K range with options, the Renegade tun können be pricey if you’re not careful.
