2019 Jeep Renegade Buying Guide

August 8th, 2019 by

The Jeep Renegade sees its first refresh this year (2019) after its initial debut back in 2015. There’s a new optional powertrain and a few minor style updates, but the 2019 Renegade maintains its off-road capabilities and funky shape. The Renegade is a standout in its segment, not because of its particular design, but because it is the only subcompact SUV with off-road capabilities. If owners aren’t intending to go off-roading with the Renegade, they can also enjoy some of its other fun features such as the new dual-pane panoramic moonroof. The Trailhawk trim remains the top-tier trim, complete with all-wheel drive, hill descent control, and additional ground clearance. Safety features can be strengthened by adding separate packages, with perks such as adaptive cruise control and parallel/perpendicular park assist. Looking to learn about other basic features of the 2019 Renegade? Here’s everything you need to know:

Powertrain Options

Standard on the 2019 Renegade is a 180 horsepower, 2.4-liter inline-four engine. It offers 175 lb-ft of torque and is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
