The 2017 Jeep Renegade
At first glance, the 2017 Jeep Renegade probably comes off as one of the smaller models in the Jeep lineup. Nevertheless, Richmond, New Baltimore, and Detroit area drivers may be surprised to realize just how much this SUV has to offer.
In this review, our team at Dick Huvaere’s Richmond Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is going to show you what to expect from the Renegade in terms of power, off-roading, and interior comfort.
Jeep Renegade Performance Specs
Unlike some other vehicles in its family, the 2017 Jeep Renegade was clearly built for high efficiency. Equipped with a 1.4L inline four-cylinder MultiAir® engine, this SUV can maintain 31 MPG highway and 24 MPG city.1
This sort of mileage is likely due in part to the turbocharging that the Renegade has received. It’s also what allows the vehicle to generate 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.
That’s a fair amount of extra muscle, so it’s really no wonder that the Renegade towing capacity receives a bit of a boost, too. Drivers will easily be able to haul up to 2,000 extra pounds of cargo—a capacity that’s bolstered by the vehicle’s standard trailer sway damping.
Going Off Road In Your Renegade
With that towing capacity, you’ll have no problem hauling extra equipment, such as camping gear or off-road vehicles. When the time comes for those sorts of trips, know that you’ll also have the handling to get through.
The Jeep Renegade was practically made for off-road driving with its available four-wheel drivetrain and Selec-Terrain™ system. This system enables your vehicle to adjust to changing road conditions (say going from mud to sand) at a rapid pace.
Several different technologies have been added to enhance Selec-Terrain™, such as Electronic Stability Control and Roll Mitigation. With these features in place, drivers should have no problem keeping their Renegade on course, no matter what the roads may look like.
The Comfortable 2017 Renegade Interior
When you strike out on your next road trip, it’s important that your vehicle has all the space you need to stay comfortable. The 2017 Jeep Renegade comes with 100.1 cubic feet of space total, as well as 18.5 cubic feet of cargo space.
Up front, as drivers settle into their six-way manually adjustable low-back bucket seat, they’ll have 41.1 inches of headroom and 41.2 inches of leg room.
Once you’re comfortable, be sure to take advantage of the many Renegade amenities. Uconnect® 5.0 with satellite and backup camera, for instance, is available to take your music streaming and mobile integration to the next level.
