Jeep Renegade Power

There are a couple of different options for what you can have under the hood of the 2019 Jeep Renegade. The base engine is a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder, capable of delivering 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. New for 2019 is the available 1.3-liter turbocharged engine, which offers up to 177 horsepower and 200 lb-ft of torque, beating the old 1.4-liter turbocharged option by 16 lb-ft. The latter of the two engines is standard on Limited and Trailhawk trims.

Off-roading prowess is expected of just about every Jeep model. The Renegade is capable of delivering it, with the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System, featuring selectable driving modes.

The Auto Mode does the work for you, adjusting performance for the current road conditions. Pick Snow mode when the powdery white stuff covers the roads, with the system minimizing oversteer to avoid sliding away. Heading out on a muddy day? The Mud mode is able to maintain low-speed traction.

Cabin Comforts

Inside the Renegade, there's space for up to five people, and everyone in the cabin will be seated on the comfortable cloth seats. Upgrade to the available leather seats for a classier-looking cabin and more supportive feel. The available heated front seats come in handy when the temperature dips, if you're looking to stay warm on those cold mornings and chilly nights.

A leather-wrapped steering wheel comes standard on the Latitude trim, giving you a better grip while navigating. That trim also features dual zone temperature control, meaning the driver and front passenger can be just inches apart but enjoy different temperature settings.

Need a bit of space for all your things? With over 50.8 cu. ft. of cargo space, you'll have plenty of room. With the split-folding rear seat, enjoy a bit of versatility when it comes to passengers and cargo.

Tech Features

Technology seems to be everywhere these days. That means being present in our vehicles, too. Jeep knows drivers love their tech, placing a standard 5-inch touchscreen in the Renegade, with Bluetooth® wireless functionality. A rearview camera is also standard, so you'll be able to take a quick look at the touchscreen and see what's happening when backing up.

Safety is important, too. The windshield wiper de-icer removes ice from the windshield so you can see the road ahead clearly. New for 2019 is adaptive cruise control, which can keep a proper distance from the vehicle in front of you.
