Interior and Infotainment Features
The Renegade has two rows that can seat up to five people and offer a generous amount of head- and legroom. Cloth upholstery is standard, while heated front seats and leather upholstery are available. This small Jeep has plenty of cargo space, providing 18.5 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats—50.8 cubes when the seats are folded flat. This amount of space is on par with other vehicles in Renegade’s class. A Uconnect infotainment system with a 5.0-inch touch screen is standard, as well as Bluetooth, voice control, a USB port, and six speakers. Available upgrades include a 7- or 8.4-inch touch screen display, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a nine-speaker premium audio system. Other options include navigation, satellite radio, and HD radio.
Engine and Performance
The Renegade’s standard engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 180-hp. There is an available 177-hp turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder. These are both paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. With the standard engine, the 2020 Jeep Renegade averages 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. If you’re into off-roading, the Renegade is an excellent choice. Even the base trim can tackle rugged terrain with ease. The Trailhawk trim is worth it if you off-road frequently, as it offers all-terrain tires, tow hooks, four-wheel drive, a traction management system, a higher ride height, and skid plates.
