2018 Jeep Renegade Review

Are you looking for a new way to get around the Ontario, Wayne County, and Sodus areas? If so, a Jeep Renegade might be your best bet.

Finding the right one for your needs has never been more exciting, as the competitive market has left you with a lot of options to choose from.

One option that tends to stand out is the new 2018 Jeep Renegade. With so much to offer, it’s always a good idea to dive in and learn everything the Renegade can do for you. Fortunately, you can find all the info you need right here with our 2018 Jeep Renegade reviews that detail all the most important aspects of this incredible crossover.

Off-Roading Capabilities

As you might expect from any Jeep vehicle, the Renegade is more than capable enough to handle off-road challenges. Opt for the Trailhawk® trim, and you’ll have access to all the best off-roading features. In fact, these features are so state of the art, that they earned the Renegade its Trail-Rated® Tough badge, which is only awarded after passing rigorous testing.

There are quite a few features that all work together to give the Jeep Renegade its off-roading capabilities. With a 20:1 crawl ratio, your traction will be good enough to maintain control in rough conditions alongside the 8.7 inches of ground clearance. If you need to travel through water, the Renegade can handle up to 19 inches of it without issue. There’s even a 35.3-foot turning diameter for added control.


While the Jeep Renegade was engineered to be rugged, that doesn’t mean you don’t also have some of the best technology available. In fact, one of the most exciting features serves to augment your off-roading capabilities even further. With the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System, you can augment your drivetrain on the fly with up to five different settings: auto, snow, sand, mud, and rock.

The Renegade even features driver-assistance systems like Lane Keeping Assist. LaneSense Lane Departure Warning can alert you if you start to exit your lane without signaling, and can even go so far as to edge you back into the proper position. As if that wasn’t enough, the Renegade also includes Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking. As the name would suggest, this system can detect imminent collisions and apply brake pressure in response, no matter how fast you’re going.

Engine Power

There are two engine options available for the Jeep Renegade, and both are impressive in their own right. The standard engine is the 1.4-liter MultiAir® Turbo Engine featuring 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Since it actively varies the volume of air consumed, you can always be sure you’re getting the most out of it with some extra pulling power.

For extra power, make sure you opt for the 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir® 2 Engine. This stunning engine offers 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque, and you can enjoy a nine-speed automatic transmission paired alongside it.
