2018 Jeep Renegade Review
Not all subcompact SUVs are made equal. Especially when you love the outdoors and want to use it just for that. The 2018 Jeep Renegade is built for the outdoors with a cozy cabin, versatile powertrain options, and a rugged aesthetic that is all its own.
If you are a shopper in the Dallas, Garland, or Arlington areas, this review of the 2018 Jeep Renegade by our team at Dallas Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram (DCJR) will help make your research process a bit easier.
2018 Jeep Renegade Performance
The 2018 Jeep Renegade comes standard with a 1.4L MultiAir® Turbo Engine that is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain combination produces 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.
When you upgrade to the Limited or Trailhawk trim levels, the engine is boosted to a 2.4L 4-cylinder Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 engine that produces 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The additional 20 horsepower and 9-speed automatic that is mated with this engine offers impressive acceleration and power on many different types of terrain.
Cabin Space and Tech
The 2018 Renegade offers a roomy cabin with an abundance of standard and available interior technology.
Although the Renegade is a subcompact SUV, it provides ample room for both front and back seat passengers. The front-seat passengers will enjoy 41.1 inches and 41.2 inches of headroom and legroom, while the back-seat passengers are provided 40.5 inches and 35.1 inches of headroom and legroom.
As far as cargo space goes, it’s no problem if you’re not a light packer. The Renegade has an available height-adjustable rear cargo floor that can be moved up or down to give you a total of 50.8 cubic feet of cargo room when the rear seats are folded down.
The driver-focused interior design brings everything to your fingertips for a convenient driving experience.
The Renegade offers an available 7-inch or 8.4-inch color touchscreen display that uses their Uconnect® software. This infotainment system provides:
- Apple CarPlay™
- Android Auto™
- SiriurXM® Satellite Radio
Use the voice-command to engage these features, which can allow you to receive and answer text messages or access one of SiriusXM®’s many stations without ever taking your hands off the wheel.
The 2018 Renegade has an exterior style that is unlike any Jeep available. Its design was inspired by the WWII Jeeps of old, but its rounded headlights and slotted grille give a modern look.
It has a certain rugged aesthetic that is even more pronounced on the Trailhawk trim level. The gray grille accents, front and rear red tow hooks, and 17-inch off-road black aluminum wheels give the car an edgy look whether on the trail or on the street.
