The 2019 Jeep Renegade Proves Itself as Part of the Pack

Back when the 2015 Jeep Renegade debuted, many thought that it didn't really fit in with the rest of the family. It was the first subcompact crossover Jeep SUV, the first Jeep SUV designed and produced under FIAT Chrysler Automobiles, and the first compact Jeep SUV to offer such a vibrant and youthful look.

But over the years, we've found that the Jeep Renegade is true to its name--it's different than anything the Jeep brand released before, but it's still got the off-road capability and distinctive Jeep SUV styling that the Jeep badge demands. The latest 2019 Jeep Renegade is the most confident subcompact yet.

What Makes the Jeep Renegade Different?

The Jeep Renegade is a compact crossover SUV that is fun to drive, has plenty of versatile cargo space, and comes available with hundreds of great modern features. So are the Toyota CH-R, the Honda HR-V, the Chevy Trax, the Kia Soul, the Subaru Crosstrek, and the Mazda CX-3.

But the Jeep Renegade is different from those vehicles--it completely eclipses the off-road capabilities of the rest of its class, and we think it boasts the most confident styling in the segment as well. In true Jeep SUV fashion, roads are optional for the Jeep Renegade. How Does the Jeep Renegade Drive Off-Road?

In a word? Admirably. The Jeep Renegade features Jeep Active Drive and Jeep Selec-Terrain four-wheel-drive technology. Thanks to its 4x4 systems, higher ground clearance, off-road tuned suspension, sturdy construction, and capable powertrain, the Trail-Rated Jeep Renegade can take you further than other compact crossovers would ever dare to. The Jeep Renegade Trailhawk can confidently crawl through tough terrain, take on serious weather, ford a foot and a half of water, and blaze its own trails.

How Does the 2019 Jeep Renegade Drive Day-to-Day?

Most of us aren't forestry workers, wilderness EMTs, or game wardens--we spend most of our driving time on pavement. The 2019 Jeep Renegade is just as well-suited to on-road driving as it is to off-roading. The nimble handling, efficient engines, and nine-speed automatic transmission make the 2019 Jeep Renegade a practical daily driver. It's easy to park, it's easy to maneuver, it's fuel-efficient, and it rides smoothly and quietly.

But rest assured, there's plenty of power available for when you need it--the 2.4-liter MultiAir engine gives you 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque to play with, and the Jeep Renegade's excellent traction-control systems keep you in control on the road. For those who enjoy more power, go for the available four-wheel-drive and the new 177 horsepower 1.3-liter turbo engine with 200 pound-feet of torque.

What's New on the 2019 Jeep Renegade?

For new features, the 2019 Jeep Renegade brings us additional safety tech like Adaptive Cruise Control and parking assistance, more options on mid-level trims, and available LED headlights, taillights, fog lights, and running lights. The Jeep Renegade Trailhawk has upped its off-road game even further with higher clearance and better bumper clearance.

The Jeep Renegade look has been freshly restyled as well, with larger standard and available wheels, bolder body styling, new exterior color options, new grille surround, and refreshed interior. We're glad it's fully grown out of those awkward-looking years.

Does the 2019 Jeep Renegade Make Good on Its Promise?

Presenting the Jeep Renegade to the US market may have been a risky departure for the brand, but it's a risk that's paid off a hundred times over. The Jeep Renegade welcomed a whole new group of drivers into the Jeep SUV fold, and it did so while staying true to the Jeep brand's heritage and reputation. It's a comfortable, affordable, and enjoyable SUV that's equally exciting on the road and off.

For those die-hard off-road enthusiasts out there, a body-on-frame 4x4 SUV like the Jeep Wrangler just can't be beaten--but for the rest of us, road-friendly yet off-road capable four-wheel-drive SUVs like the Jeep Renegade are a smart choice.

Overall, the new 2019 Jeep Renegade is like that faithful friend who's always up for anything. Want to scale mountain trails? Sure, just switch over to Selec-Terrain. Need help moving your 2,000-pound rock collection? No problem, hook up the trailer. Need a ride to work? Ready when you are.
