The 2022 Jeep Renegade includes a larger infotainment system as standard, offers a black-styling themed Altitude Package on the Latitude trim, and features new exterior styling touches on the Limited trim.
Choosing Your Jeep Renegade
The Renegade is available in four trims, Sport, Latitude, Trailhawk, and Limited. Base prices range from $26,085 to $32,485.
There is one engine available in the Renegade; a 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that puts out 177 horsepower and 210 pound-feet of torque at 1,750 RPM. All trims are standard with all-wheel drive, except for the Sprot trim where it is a $900 option. The Trailhawk utilizes a lower gear ratio for additional rock crawling power.
The all-wheel-drive Renegade earns 23 miles per gallon city, 29 mpg highway, and 26 combined while the front-wheel-drive Sport model returns 27 mpg combined. Premium fuel is recommended.
Passenger and Cargo Capacity
The Renegade is 166 inches long, 73.9 inches wide, and packs 18.5 cubic feet of cargo space which expands to 50.8 cubic feet with the seatback folded, putting the small Jeep about seven inches shorter than the Chevrolet Trailblazer with less cargo space. The Renegade is rated for five passengers and offers 35.1 inches of legroom and 40.5 inches of headroom, which again, is less than that of the Trailblazer.
The Trailhawk trim can tow 2,000 pounds which is impressive for the class, as is the off-road-minded trim’s 8.7 inches of ground clearance.
Most trims are standard with automatic emergency braking (the Trailhawk is excluded), lane-keep assist, and blind-spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert. The Trailhawk and Limited trims also receive rain-sensing wipers and a windshield wiper deicer.
The Renegade earns a four-star overall rating from NHTSA and a mix of Good, Acceptable, Marginal, and Poor ratings from IIHS.
The Sport trim now utilizes an 8.4-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, USB and Aux ports, SiriusXM, and navigation. A 12-volt outlet is standard while the Latitude gains a second USB port, and the Trailhawk receives a 115-volt outlet. A Kenwood nine-speaker sound system is offered on the Latitude trim.
