2017 Jeep Renegade Review

The 2017 Jeep Renegade is an adventurous, athletic crossover offering nimble driving dynamics, Trail Rated® 4×4 capability, and advanced technology. Ontario, Sodus, and Wayne County drivers seeking a sure-footed and off-road ready crossover may find what they’re looking for with the 2017 Jeep Renegade, so Peake Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT decided to take a closer look at its abilities and key features.

Overview of the 2017 Jeep Renegade

The 2017 Jeep Renegade is available in six trim levels-Trailhawk, Limited, Latitude, Sport, Desert Hawk Limited Edition, and Altitude Limited Edition. Each are engineered to deliver sure-footed, capable performances on backroads, highways, trails, and beyond, offering powerful four-cylinder engines and outstanding 4×4 capability to help you drive with confidence and control.

2017 Jeep Renegade Engine

A standard 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 engine delivers 180 horsepower, 175 lb-ft of torque, and up to an EPA-estimated 21 city/29 highway mpg. If fuel efficiency is a concern, drivers can opt for a 160 horsepower 1.4L MultiAir® Turbo engine delivering 184 lb-ft of torque and up to an EPA-estimated 24 city/31 highway mpg.
Impressive Handling
The 2017 Jeep Renegade’s stiff body construction features 70 percent high-strength steel, aluminum and magnesium. Coupled with a responsive steering system and an integrated KONI frequency selective dampening front and rear strut suspension system, the Renegade offers a smooth, responsive ride on freeways and rural backroads alike.
Incredible 4X4 Capability
The 2017 Jeep Renegade can go places where most crossovers would never dare to trek with its available 4×4 systems-Jeep Active Drive and Jeep Active Drive Low. Each system features a rear axle disconnect that switches between two- and four- wheel drive to improve efficiency when 4×4 ability isn’t needed. Offered exclusively on Trailhawk trims, Jeep Active Drive Low adds a 20:1 crawl ratio.

2017 Jeep Renegade Interior

Like its older siblings, the Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee, the 2017 Renegade’s cabin offers seating for five passengers, generous cargo space, and advanced technology that brings the world to the tips of your fingers. Seats upholstered in standard cloth with mesh fabric give its cabin a distinctive look, while leather trim available on the Renegade’s higher trims help create a luxurious, upscale vibe.

Jeep Renegade Cargo Space

Behind its second row, the 2017 Jeep Renegade provides 18.5 cubic feet of cargo space. 60/40 split-rear seats fold down and out of the way to increase the Renegade’s cargo area to 50.8 cubic feet. The Renegade also offers a height-adjustable rear cargo floor to make room for larger objects-like boxes, dirt bikes, luggage-providing a safe spot to stow your belongings.
To help you stay connected, the 2017 Jeep Renegade offers several Uconnect® systems with a range of features and services, including Uconnect 6.5 NAV. Complete with a 6.5-inch touchscreen, sensor-assisted GPS, AM/FM radio, and more, Uconnect 6.5 NAV helps you stay in touch without losing focus on the road.
