Overview

The 2017 Jeep Renegade subcompact crossover delivers excellent driving dynamics both on and off the road. Capable, competent, and tech-savvy, the baby Jeep drips with personality and a sense of fun unmatched by most other vehicles. It may be the smallest Jeep in the lineup, but it proudly upholds the family name.

It has a unified design inside and out that makes it an easy vehicle to like. The interior is well-conceived and comfortable, even for those in the second row. Tactile surfaces don’t feel cheap, even though the base price starts just north of $18,000 (including destination). Cargo room is excellent and belies the Renegade's tiny footprint.

What's New for 2017

Jeep’s Keyless Go feature, which allows the driver to lock and unlock the doors and liftgate without pressing buttons on the key fob, is now standard on all trims (late availability). Automatic high beams are available for the first time.

Choosing Your Jeep Renegade

The Renegade seats five passengers and still has 18.5 cubic feet of cargo room. With the seats down, the cargo area expands to 50.8 feet, above average for the class.

The Renegade is offered in four different flavors: the base Sport, the mid-range Latitude, the upscale Limited, and the four-wheel-drive-only Trailhawk. Special editions may also offered from time to time, and may vary by area.

Two engines are offered. The standard 1.4-liter turbo four-cylinder puts out 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, and comes paired with a six-speed manual transmission. The available 2.4-liter four-cylinder provides a lift to 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. It's mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Both engines are available with all-wheel drive in place of the standard front-drive setup.

Jeep Renegade

Sport

The base model is fairly spartan, but does have power windows, power locks, and keyless entry. Also standard are 16-inch steel wheels and a four-speaker sound system. Air conditioning is available as part of the Power and Air group, which also adds cruises control and power mirrors. The Sound Group features two additional speakers and satellite radio.

Jeep Renegade

Latitude

The Latitude builds on the Sport model with a rearview camera, alloy wheels, roof rails, body-color door handles and mirrors, and automatic headlights. The interior gets an upgrade as well, with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, ambient interior lighting, and a folding passenger seat.

Jeep Renegade

Limited

The 2.4-liter engine and automatic transmission are standard, as are many convenience and comfort upgrades: leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a household power outlet, and remote start. The exterior gets dual exhaust tips and 18-inch wheels.

Jeep Renegade

Trailhawk

This version is geared towards off-road use and includes the 2.4-liter engine and automatic transmission, low-range gearing, a raised suspension, hill descent control, all-terrain tires, 17-inch wheels, tow hooks, and underbody skid plates.

CarsDirect Tip

Not planning on going off road? Skip the Trailhawk. Yes, it looks totally boss, but being designed for off-road capability means the handling and ride suffer on the road

Managing to be both rugged and adorable, the 2017 Jeep Renegade can pull double-duty as a capable off-road vehicle and a practical daily driver. Although standard features are few in the base model, there are plenty of optional extras. And with a very modest starting price, most buyers will be able to splurge on some add-ons.

Pricing and Equipment

Prices for the Renegade Sport start $18,990 (including a $995 destination charge), but the mid-range Latitude trim offers the best value, with its starting MSRP of $22,490. It includes the following features:

  • Audio streaming through a 5.0-inch touchscreen
  • AM/FM/XM audio with Bluetooth connectivity
  • 16-inch alloy wheels
  • A leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Air-conditioning

Starting at $27,640, the Renegade Trailhawk is aimed at buyers that enjoy the occasional off-road adventure. It comes with all-wheel drive – a $2,000 option on all other Renegades – a simulated crawl ratio and a dedicated Rock mode on the SelecTerrain system for light rock crawling, a full-size spare tire, a range of underbody protection, and some sportier aesthetics. And, finally, for a starting price of $26,190, buyers can opt for the Limited model and its standard heated, powered leather seats, seven-inch instrument cluster display, push-button start, and flashy silver grille.

All Sport and Latitude models come standard with a turbocharged, 1.4-liter four-cylinder with 160 horsepower, 184 pound-feet of torque, a 29-mile-per-gallon freeway rating, and a six-speed manual transmission. If you want an automatic, prepare to pony up $1,330 a nine-speed automatic and the 2.4-liter four-cylinder that comes with it. As with other Fiat Chrysler products, the 2.4 produces 180 hp, 175 lb-ft of torque, and in the Renegade, returns up to 30 mpg on the freeway.

Performance Pros

Jeep Renegade
  • When compared to any other small SUV or crossover on the market, the 2017 Jeep Renegade has incredible off-road abilities.
  • The Trailhawk model handles dirt roads and 45-degree hills with ease. It can ford streams and climb over boulders that are roughly the same size as the vehicle’s wheels.

Performance Cons

  • Encumbered by the all-wheel drive, the stronger 2.4-liter engine is noticeably less perky than the turbocharged model. This is likely down to the smaller engine's more accessible torque.
  • With the nine-speed transmission, we experienced some jerky shifting and noticed an occasional hiccup when changing gears, both common problems with FCA's nine-speed automatics.
  • The ride tends to be on the bouncy side, especially with the Trailhawk.

Interior Pros

  • The cabin has an upscale feel, while still retaining its “Jeep-ness.” This means that there’s a good balance between soft-touch materials and military-looking features.
  • There’s plenty of practical storage space available.

Interior Cons

  • Under certain circumstances, the cabin can be noisy.
  • The backseat is small and cramped, making it uncomfortable for long-legged passengers.

The Most Pleasant Surprise

We love the fact that even this smallest Jeep can handle itself off-road. Yet, aside form some bumpiness at freeway speeds, it still manages to offer a fairly comfortable and refined ride about town.

The Least Pleasant Surprise

Despite its small size, the Renegade gets ho-hum EPA-estimated fuel economy. It's also subject to lackluster safety ratings, performing especially poorly in the rollover test.

The Bottom Line

Due to its shortcomings in the fuel economy department and disappointing safety ratings, the 2017 Jeep Renegade probably isn’t the greatest family vehicle. However, for single drivers who have even the slightest interest in off-road adventures, the Renegade would be a fun and budget-friendly option.
