What new features and packages are available in the 2018 Renegade?

New for the 2018 model year, the Jeep Renegade receives a rear backup camera standard within all its trims and an accompanying 5", 7", or 8.4" entertainment media screen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto also becomes standard within all models. The center console storage compartment was redesigned to have a bit more room for knick knacks. The more luxurious offerings within this more upscale Jeep include textured, water resistant cloth or leather-trimmed upholstery and the available removable roof panelings for an open air feel or the built in dual-pane panoramic glass sunroof, both evocative of the bare frame design of the Wrangler with all windows lowered. The trunk is designed with 18.5 cu.ft of space, expandable to over 50 cu.ft should you flat fold the 60/40 rear seats. This space also has an adjustable floor panel to vary the trunk height or give a discrete storage bin below the false floor. Popular packages provide lower trims with even greater quality-of-life features found in the higher trim models for a fraction of their price. The Popular Equipment Group provides eight-way power adjustable driver seat with four-way lumbar support, a 40/20/40 foldable rear bench seat instead of the standard 60/40 build, dual-zone automatic temperature control, and auto-dimming rear view mirror. The Cold Weather Group is a must if you live anywhere with chilly falls and rough winters. Heated front seats, heated steering wheel, windshield de-icing and rain-sensing wipers, and all-season floor mats make for an enjoyable, comfortable ride no matter the outdoor conditions. Last, the entertainment system can be enhanced with the BeatsAudio Premium Sound System Suite. This package comes with nine speakers, a Beats subwoofer, and a 506-watt amplifier to churn out the tunes.

How's the power of the 2018 Renegade?

Coming in either two-wheel or four-wheel drive throughout the Renegade line but for the Trail Rated 4WD-only Trailhawk, the Renegade's offered powertrains both provide great performance and throttle on your journey. The standard build comes with the 1.4L turbocharged inline-4 motor and a six-speed manual transmission. This engine provides its driver with 160hp, 184 lb-ft of torque, and 24/31 mpg for both its 2WD and 4WD drivetrain configurations. Next level up offered in higher trim models is the 2.4L inline-4 powertrain. Outputs get raised to 180hp and 175 lb-ft of torque, with a slightly better economy coming within the 2WD model (22/31 mpg instead of the 4WD 21/29 mpg). This engine is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission, providing better low-gear revs and torque performance.

What systems are specially designed for the Trailhawk's Trail Rated 4x4 capabilities?

Jeep's specialized systems and exemplary attention to performance details are best showcased in the Renegade's Trailhawk trim, the most off-road capable model in the Renegade's lineup. The Trail Rated badge is well earned by the Renegade Trailhawk's raised suspension, underbody skidplates, 17-inch wheels, front and rear tow hooks, and a full-size spare tire. The front suspension provides 6.2 inches of clearance, with 7.5 inches provided by the rear suspension. This can drive through up to nineteen inches of water fording! Traction is this trim's specialty, and it's what makes this vehicle so capable on uneven ground or crazy grades, easily able to tackle 30.5-degree approach angles, 25.7-degree breakover angles, and 34.3-degree departure angles. The 4WD Low system and all-terrain tires give a 20:1 crawl ratio. The brake lock differential and Active Drive systems redistributes torque depending on which tires have most contact to the ground, able to send one hundred percent of torque to any one tire for guaranteed forward movement. The SelecTerrain Drive Modes helps give you maximum control no matter the road or weather conditions. You can choose between Auto, Snow, Sand, Mud, and Rock. Rock mode is exclusive to Trailhawk, delivering low speed 4x4 capability no matter how rough your chosen walk of life is.
