February 13th, 2020 by

The 2020 Jeep Renegade is an attractive, capable compact SUV that can maneuver in heavy traffic or use a small parking space. It’s an ideal choice for a comfortable commute or an off-road adventure, and seven trim levels are available: High Altitude, Limited, Trailhawk, Altitude, Latitude, Upland, and Sport. Here’s some more information about this vehicle’s excellent safety and technology. 

Great Safety 

The 2020 Renegade comes with a variety of safety features to protect you and your passengers and allow you to drive confidently. It includes electronic stability control with roll mitigation, hill descent control, a rearview camera, traction control, lane-keeping assistance, seven air bags, and braking assistance for additional stopping power in emergencies.

The dual-stage air bags can activate at different speeds depending on the force of a collision. You can also add full-speed collision warning, a theft-deterrent system with an engine immobilizer, rear parking assistance, automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, and lane departure warning.

A Powerful, Efficient Performance

You can select a turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 177 horsepower and 210 pound-feet of torque or a four-cylinder 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir engine that gives 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. You can also choose a plug-in hybrid that combines the 1.3-liter engine with an electric motor for 240 horsepower.

The Renegade uses a nine-speed automatic transmission with overdrive capabilities that let it travel faster with lower rpms, and it comes with front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive comes with the plug-in hybrid, and it’s optional with every trim level. With all-wheel drive, you’ll also get a manual mode as well as auto, snow, sand, and mud settings.

A rock setting is available with the Trailhawk trim. The Trailhawk also has a high air intake and sealed electrical connections for crossing streams, creeks, and puddles. It can maneuver easily around rocks, logs, or other obstacles, and it has high ground clearance, underbody skid plates, and a suspension with axle articulation designed to keep all four wheels on the ground even on rough trails.

The plug-in hybrid’s gas engine powers the front wheels, and the electric motor moves the rear axle. It has a 30-mile range with only electric power. Premium fuel is recommended, and the Renegade can go 24 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.

A Comfortable, Convenient Interior

The Renegade comes with a variety of advanced features, including Bluetooth, folding rear and front passenger seats, push-button start, controls on the steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, cruise control, and two 12-volt power outlets. You can also add an 8.4-inch color touch screen, heated and ventilated front seats, voice recognition, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power sunroof, and keyless entry. Remote start, SiriusXM satellite radio, a shelf for the cargo area, navigation, dual-zone climate control, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility are available as well.
