Under the Renegade's Hood
The Renegade grabs a base engine which is a 4 cylinder, 1.4-liter inline that is turbocharged and is capable of 160 horsepower and 184 lbs.-ft. of torque. This engine setup comes with a manual transmission but also has the option of an upgrade to an automatic transmission that is 9 speeds. There also is the option of a Tigershark 2.4-liter four-cylinder motor that gets 175 lb.-ft. of torque which adds some weight but is also a first of its kind. These engines both get over 30 miles per gallon while on the highway and utilize MultiAir technology which makes the engine more efficient and decreases emissions more than most other systems.
Design of Jeep Renegade
The interior of the renegade contains elements that are made from tougher materials than most. The interior is inviting and rugged and more than one has come to expect from a sub-compact car. Most knobs are large and easy to follow and understand almost immediately. Even things such as the air vents take on a futuristic look and are designed with longevity in mind. The interior has somewhat of a military theme to it and many Jeep brand logos through the interior. There are 4 levels of trim that the Renegade comes in this year. Even the entry level model has great amenities like keyless entry, automatic headlights, dual sunroofs,16-inch wheels, folding seats and multiple media connections. Both the Latitude and Limited models add additional items of interest. The 2016 Renegade also offers a Trailhawk model for the off road oriented customer allowing for more features to be used including hill descent control, raised suspension, tow hooks and skid plates to protect the underbody.
The Jeep Renegade may be a sub-compact vehicle but it in no way is small on safety. It comes with seven airbags and stability control and some come with a rear-view camera also. There is a forward collision warning system that brakes automatically when needed along with a lane departure warning system, blind spot monitoring and many more technology based safety systems. The Renegade gets great crash test ratings from both major testing agencies and is chock full of great craftsmanship. The Renegade even takes great care of the small things like the seating in the Renegade riding high to increase visibility and the Renegade uses large mirrors to help the operator see their surroundings while driving.
