2021 Jeep Renegade Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

Rodolfo Schellin

It is still complete of most of what buyers are seeking for from a cute ‘ute, but the 2021 Jeep Renegade crossover SUV still prioritizes off-street ability. It stands out between its rivals in that way—and, assuming which is a superior factor for you, it is very able.

It earns a five.seven TCC Ranking, which is buoyed by its conventional basic safety equipment and appears to be like but dragged down by its effectiveness in base guise. Energy isn’t in the Renegade’s repertoire, but it does just enough to go just about anyplace off street. (Browse additional about how we level cars.)

The Renegade is obtainable in Activity, Latitude, Constrained and Trailhawk trims this calendar year. Front-wheel drive is conventional in base trims, despite the fact that all-wheel drive will be a common enhance for most. The Activity design ducks in at the proper side of fair for about $24,000, but Trailhawk trims that we suggest tip the scales at just in excess of $thirty,000.

Every Renegade will get Jeep’s signature appears to be like: upright model, seven-slot grille, tall experience peak. The Renegade is smaller sized than the relaxation, and a lot less useful, but also a lot less highly-priced.

Foundation Renegades are run by a 2.four-liter inline-four which is forgettable for its unrefined noises and mediocre gasoline overall economy, but optional on Latitude and conventional on Trailhawk and Constrained models is a one.three-liter turbo-four which is far better. It can make 177 horsepower and is far better suited for effectiveness and off-roading—we can’t say the exact about the relaxation of the Jeep lineup. Both of those engines pair to an indecisive nine-speed automatic transmission that we pan and a 4-wheel independent suspension of which, we’re a supporter.

Four adults will healthy in the Renegade, but two will be additional cozy up front with additional place in the rear for equipment. Inspite of the Renegade’s tall experience peak, it is cozy on the street and able off street.

The information this calendar year is automatic crisis braking incorporated on all models, despite the fact that federal crash testers do not have quite a few superior items to say.

Foundation Renegades incorporate a seven.-inch touchscreen for infotainment, active basic safety capabilities, fabric upholstery, and sixteen-inch steel wheels. We’d commit up to a Latitude or Trailhawk anyway, which attribute the uprated engine and an obtainable 8.four-inch touchscreen.
