When you think of off-roaders, you imagine a large, slightly rough-looking vehicle that has the strength to conquer all sorts of terrains but sometimes lacks comfort. Well, one Jeep model proves that not all off-roaders have to be the same size, style, and performance. The Jeep Renegade is a notably smaller, charming SUV vehicle perfect for any kind of road, gravel or cross-country terrain. Inside, you are surrounded by modern-looking features and amazingly comfy seats. The engine has more power in it than most of the competition and its nimble handling with sharp brakes make towing a simple affair.
A Sleek-Looking Off-Roader
The first thing you’ll notice about the Renegade is the fact that it is notably smaller than other SUVs and this makes it even more interesting. The exterior is bold and attractive-looking but it still carries the iconic Jeep brand features. It has the well-known wide fenders, trapezoidal wheel arches, high ground clearance, and large circular headlamps. It is also curvier and rounder than other Jeep vehicles which means that the manufacturer wants to move with the times and create more modern-looking SUVs. If you want to let sunshine inside your Renegade, you are able to install two different kinds of sunroofs.
The interior of the Jeep Renegade is a place you want to spend plenty of time in. This is because it was carefully crafted to look modern, yet feel comfortable for all passengers. There are plenty of soft-to-the-touch materials throughout the cabin and all five passengers can enjoy the cozy cloth-upholstery on the seats. There’s ample head and legroom in both rows and the front row has excellent road visibility because of the high seating position. When it comes to tech features inside the Renegade, there is the Uconnect infotainment system with a 5-inch display, a rearview camera, a nice six-speaker audio system, and Bluetooth. The infotainment is user-friendly and within reach for the driver. The cargo space is generous, having in mind the smaller build of this vehicle and space can be increased by folding the rear seats down.
Amazing Performance And Excellent Braking
The Renegade comes with a 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine that generates 180 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque. It is paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission which shifts nicely, making the vehicle pretty agile in all kinds of terrains. Rugged terrains are areas where the Renegade can best show its capability and strength. If you want to tow something, you can count on this four-wheeler to tow up to 2,000 pounds, meaning that it can easily haul a boat, for example. That is a great result which puts it at the top of the class compared to many other SUVs. When it comes to its handling on the highway, you can expect an outstanding ride followed by comfort and silence in the cabin. Some of its features like acoustic glass together with the triple-door sealing system help to considerably reduce the noise while driving.
The Renegade is a highly reliable vehicle that gives you over sixty-five standard and a lot of available features that you can choose to add. A standard rearview camera is a useful tool when it comes to parking or reversing since it gives you a look at what’s behind you. Some of its available options help you with unsafe lane changes by signalling when another car is in your blind spot.
Fun to Drive Around
One thing is for sure, the Renegade will never bore you with its driving dynamics - quite the opposite; it will give you just enough of an adrenaline rush and put a wide grin on your face. It has long been known that every Jeep is the perfect companion for adventures; now you can have the Renegade as a much more refined and comfier partner for all your road trips.
