2022 Jeep Renegade
As the entry level model into the Jeep lifestyle, the 2022 Jeep Renegade is a rugged and charming alternative to other subcompact SUVs. Buyers can enjoy the great outdoors thanks to special edition packages and off-roading Trail Rated trims, as well as rely on the Renegade as a daily commuter. Providing a relaxing ride, complete with a roomy interior, the 2022 Renegade is the subcompact SUV to beat.
Avail. Engine Type
The 202 Jeep Renegade is offered in six different trims: Sport, Latitude, Altitude, Limited, Trailhawk and RED Edition. For 2022, all trims are powered by the 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The Renegade offers prospective buyers two different 4×4 systems to choose from. The Active Drive 4×4 system is one of them — a part-time 4×4 system that automatically engages depending on changing driving conditions or by driver input and comes standard on the Renegade Sport, Latitude, and Limited trims. The Renegade Trailhawk trim also includes a part-time 4×4 system: Active Drive Low – a system with low-range capability that provides low-speed traction with an impressive crawl ratio of 21:1. Both the Active Drive and Active Drive Low 4×4 systems also feature the additional Jeep Selec-Terrain system that gives drivers five driving modes to choose from: Auto, Sport, Snow, Sand/Mud, and Rock.
What’s New for 2022?
Jeep spruced up the 2022 Jeep Renegade, dropping the prior 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, as well as the Upland and High Altitude trims. The new (RED) Edition includes Gloss Black exterior badging and accents, as well as other interior accents. There’s also the upgraded 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment display complete with Navigation. The top-tier Renegade Limited trim also features a revised grille and 18-inch wheels, along with some other upgrades. Those looking to hit the trails behind the wheel of the 2022 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk can expect enhanced off-road equipment and a rugged aesthetic. Jeep also offers the Sun and Sound Package for 2022 and includes a Kenwood Audio System along with a Panoramic Sunroof. There’s also the Convenience Package which adds heated front seats, a 115-volt power outlet, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat.
The 2022 Jeep Renegade exterior doesn’t feature a lot of changes, but its stance remains aggressive for a subcompact SUV, including tow hooks and numerous wheel and tire combos. Jeep offers buyers various packages, including an LED Lighting Group that adds LED headlamps, LED tail lamps, daytime running lights, and cornering fog lamps. Lower body side-cladding and monotone paint are standard across all trims, but side roof rails vary from black to chrome depending on the trim. Customers interested in an immersive Jeep experience of open-air feeling, there are the My Sky Power retractable/removable panels offered as an optional upgrade across the entire Renegade lineup.
As quirky on the inside as its exterior design, the 2022 Jeep Renegade offers the following standard features — steering wheel-mounted audio controls, a height-adjustable rear cargo floor, a front center sliding armrest, and cargo tie-down loops. The upholstery varies from cloth to fabric, with supple leather an optional upgrade on the high-tier trims. Luxurious trims such as the Limited and Trailhawk trims come standard with a leather-wrapped shift knob and all-season floor mats. The Renegade Limited trim is the top tier of the trims and includes heated front seats, a power 8-way driver seat with lumbar support, and a 40/20/40 rear seat with trunk pass-thru access. Storage solutions blow the competition out of the water thanks to chairs that fold flat for optimal cargo room, mesh pockets for storage, and an adjustable cargo floor in the trunk.
Infotainment systems vary depending on the trim with a media hub (USB and AUX connections) and a 6-speaker audio system as the only standard features across the entire lineup. All trims feature the brand’s Uconnect infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen display, complete with Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto capabilities, integrated voice command Bluetooth and audio streaming. There’s also an 8.4-inch touchscreen display that’s standard on the higher-tier trims, with navigation as an additional upgrade, as is a Kenwood Premium Sound system.
