This standard trim is quite impressive when it comes to its standard features. For one, it comes standard with the more powerful 2.4L 4-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive (which can be upgraded to four-wheel drive).

- All-season tires: traverse all roads in any season without worry of slippage

The Jeepster trim is basically a mold of the Sport trim. This means you’ll get all the standard features there, including all-season tires, remote keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic emergency braking, and blindspot monitoring. However, the notable differences are the addition of 3 key features: 19-inch alloy wheels, remote start, and proximity keyless entry. So, if you want a little more convenience, opt for the Jeepster.
- Dual-zone automatic climate control: no matter where you’re seated, the temperature will be just perfect
- Proximity keyless entry: if your hands are full, just use this convenient feature to get in and out easily
The Latitude trim is also another one that builds upon the standard Sport trim. The most notable differences are that you get 17-inch alloy wheels and 2 USB ports instead. Also, you’ll have plenty of choices for upgrades here. First is the Luxury package, which upgrades your infotainment system to an 8.4-inch touchscreen and gives you things like the turbocharged engine, adaptive cruise control, parking sensors, and hands-free park assist.
You can also add the Convenience package. This includes features like rain-sensing windshield wipers, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat.
If you want to choose “a la carte” features, those available to you include a 9-speaker stereo, remote start, proximity keyless entry, and a panoramic sunroof.
- 2 USB ports: you won’t have to fight over who gets to charge up their devices
- Upgrade packages: the Luxury and Convenience packages give you more choices for the Latitude trim
The Upland trim is one of the only trims that 4-wheel drive is standard. This can be great for those that love getting out on the trails! The standard features here are 17-inch alloy wheels, tow hooks, a front skid plate, and remote start. You’ll also get a restyled front bumper, which will help you clear the ground better if you go off-roading.
- Front skid plate and restyled front bumper: be an off-roading king/queen with these features
- Remote start: get your car nice and warm before you even leave your house
Here’s another trim that only comes in 4-wheel drive. It also comes standard with the turbocharged engine. Take the Latitude trim, copy it over with some upgrades, and you’ll get the Limited trim.
You’ll benefit from leather upholstery, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, remote start, proximity keyless entry, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. The infotainments system also gets a larger touchscreen (8.4 inches), as well as HD radio and navigation.

The Trailhawk trim is an absolute off-roading beast. It takes the Limited trim and adds all-terrain tires, skid plates, tow hooks, a higher-riding suspension, and a lower gear ratio.
