The Latitude model carries a price tag of $22,940 and brings some welcome creature comforts over the entry-level Sport trim. For a start, it adds 16-inch aluminum wheels, automatic headlights, fog lights, and heated exterior mirrors.
The cabin adds dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a remote USB port, sun visors with illuminated vanity mirrors, ambient LED cabin lights, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, SiriusXM satellite radio, and the larger seven-inch display with UConnect 4.
Upgrading to the 2.4-liter and the nine-speed automatic transmission costs $1,530 at this price point. There are a total of nine available packages for the Latitude trim, although a large portion are from the Mopar aftermarket catalog.
The Advanced Technology Group ($995) packs all the active safety equipment an owner can ask for – look for automatic high beam, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning with lane-keeping assist, and rear parking sensors. The Safety and Security Group ($945) includes blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, HID headlights, rain sensitive windshield wipers, a security alarm, and a tonneau cover. This is a worthwhile package, as it replaces the Renegade's woeful halogen headlights.
The Cold Weather Group ($745) includes heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. The Popular Equipment Group ($595) brings a 115-volt auxiliary power outlet, a 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats, an eight-way power driver's seat with lumbar adjustments, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The Uconnect 8.4 Nav Group ($1,345) adds Uconnect 4 with an 8.4-inch touchscreen display.
The $695 Altitude Package is a style-focused option that adds black 18-inch wheels and gloss black exterior styling elements.
