Drivers in New Bedford and Somerset can find out more about the 2018 Jeep Renegade with this comprehensive review.
2018 Jeep Renegade Performance
The Renegade comes with two engines: a 1.4L turbo 4-cylinder engine with a 6-speed manual or a 2.4L turbo 4-cylinder engine with a 9-speed automatic transmission. These engines share power and capability, though the larger engine packs a little more punch.
The Renegade has excellent handling, whether it’s traversing the trails or commuting through the urban streets. It has a cushiony ride and smooth cornering, along with the excellent body control that many SUVs lack. Front-wheel drive is standard, though 4-wheel drive is an option. All models are available with the Selec-Terrain® system as well, which allows you to select the drive mode to adjust to the terrain and driving conditions. The specialized Trailhawk trim is equipped with a 4-wheel system with low-range gears and other off-road-performance upgrades.
Jeep Renegade Interior
The Renegade seats five passengers on cloth upholstery. The seats are plush and comfortable, providing plenty of support for long drives. Leg- and headroom are ample as well, thanks to the boxy interior design. Upgrades like leather upholstery, heated seating, power adjustability, and a heated steering wheel provide even more comfort
The cargo hold is large as well, with the maximum capacity at 50.8 cubes of space. The load floor is low and flat, which makes loading quick and convenient. Some models have a folding passenger seat as well, allowing you to haul large or long cargo and standard split-folding rear seats for better passenger or cargo configuration.
Jeep Renegade Technology
The Uconnect® infotainment system with a 5-inch touchscreen and Bluetooth® connectivity are standard for the Renegade. This system features straightforward menus and responsive inputs, as well as actual knobs and buttons for redundant controls. Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ smartphone compatibility are also available, which allow you to stream the media from your smartphone through the vehicle’s onboard system. Upgrades include a 7- or 8.4-inch touchscreen, a 9-speaker BeatsAudio™ system and satellite radio to add to the entertainment and connectivity options.
For safety, the Renegade comes standard with a rear back-up camera. A full suite of active safety features is optional as well, which includes features like Blind-Spot Monitors, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keep Assist, Automatic Braking, and Rear Cross-Traffic Warning. These features work together to keep you aware and protected from other cars and pedestrians around your vehicle, so you can better avoid a crash.
