2019 Jeep Renegade Review Sandy

The 2019 Jeep Renegade: A Jeep SUV for Every Need

Not everyone was sure how the Jeep Renegade would be received when it first came out. Jeep SUVs like the Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Cherokee were enthusiasts' favorites for decades, but this was something else entirely. It was a little boxy, it was a bit confusing, and it wasn't like anything we'd seen in the off-road SUV field.

It turns out that was a great choice. The Jeep Renegade has since created its own class--an off-road capable compact crossover SUV that's stylish, comfortable, affordable, and efficient. The Jeep Renegade introduced the Jeep SUV lifestyle to a whole new range of drivers. With its exciting styling, popular features, practical design, and true-to-form Jeep-brand off-road abilities, the new 2019 Jeep Renegade welcomes all drivers to enjoy the ride.

Powering the Jeep Renegade

The 2019 Jeep Renegade offers a new turbocharged 1.3-liter engine. It's good for up to 200 pound-feet of torque and 177 horsepower, and it's well-balanced when it comes to power, fuel-efficiency, and towing capacity. The standard-issue engine for 2019 is the 2.4-liter MultiAir with 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque--a solid improvement over the old outgoing 1.4-liter I4 engine found in 2018 models.

The Renegade Weekend Warrior

Of course, a huge reason to choose a Jeep SUV is for off-roading. This is where the Jeep Renegade really shows its strengths. The Renegade Trailhawk offers the Selec-Terrain and Active Drive four-wheel-drive technologies, as well as off-road tuned gearing, a specialized suspension with higher ground-clearance, and loads custom 4x4 equipment. Jeep Renegade 4x4 models are available outfitted with tow hooks, skid plates, selectable off-road drive modes, all-terrain tires, and everything else you need to leave the rest of the compact SUV class far behind at the trail head. This kind of setup gives you a serious off-road edge that competitors like the Honda HR-V, the Toyota CH-R, the Mazda CX-3, the Chevy Trax, and even the Subaru Crosstrek can't approach.

The Renegade Daily Driver

Part of what makes the Jeep Renegade popular is its everyday versatility. The Jeep Renegade's respectable fuel-efficiency, on-road friendly suspension, and standard nine-speed automatic transmission make it perfectly enjoyable as a daily driver. For those who want an off-road capable utility vehicle but don't want to feel like they're riding a jackhammer to the grocery store, the Jeep Renegade is a good choice. It has a tight turning radius, a sporty feel, and a full complement of modern conveniences.

2019 Jeep Renegade Features

As with many Jeep SUVs, the Jeep Renegade is available in trim-levels ranging from just above bare-bones all the way to off-road luxury-liner. The Jeep Renegade has all the modern favorites available, like parking assist, adaptive cruise control, leather trim and seating, heated seats, LED lights, and touchscreen infotainment systems. You can build the Jeep Renegade to speak to your style with a selection of vibrant colors, some slick interior styling, and deluxe audio systems.

In addition to the new turbo engine, upgraded standard engine, and standard automatic transmission, the 2019 Jeep Renegade brings in more confident styling and a bolder stance. Updates include a redesigned grille, a reshaped front-end, and additional wheel and color options.

Why Do Drivers Choose the Jeep Renegade?

The 2019 Jeep Renegade gives you options you can't find elsewhere in its class. If you want a compact off-road SUV that comes with plenty of street smarts, the Jeep Renegade is what you're looking for--but if you're the type to ford rivers, scale mountains, and make your own trails all day every day, you'll be better suited with the new Jeep Wrangler.

Will you see a Jeep Renegade taking home first-place at off-road competitions? Maybe not--but chances are you will see a Jeep Renegade (or two) on secluded trails, mountain paths, city streets, and interstates all across the country.

The Jeep Renegade is a great fit for drivers who want a capable and comfortable day-to-day driver that isn't afraid to tear off down a muddy trail or tow a heavy load. The Jeep Renegade brings us a great combination of tough trail performance, comfortable and efficient on-road performance, modern features, and smart styling. Overall, we think it's a fun-to-drive jack-of-all-trades, and we look forward to what else the Jeep Renegade will bring us in the future.
