2017 Jeep Renegade Overview

For a subcompact crossover that is practical for the everyday, yet still boasts rugged performance credentials and a lot of personality, look no further than the Jeep Renegade. The Renegade may be the smallest Jeep ever sold, but it makes a big impression on the road with a standard turbo engine, agile handling and available four-wheel drive.

The Renegade carries over into the model year, adding a few new features to its equipment list--including keyless ignition and entry, automatic high beams and xenon headlights-- and two new trims: Deserthawk and Altitude. Continue reading our 2017 Jeep Renegade review below to learn more about this stand-out model.

Renegade Trims & Features

This model year, the 2017 Jeep Renegade in the Phoenix area comes in six trims: Sport, Latitude, Altitude, Limited, Trailhawk, and Deserthawk. Starting on the Renegade Latitude, the crossover is equipped with a fold-flat front passenger seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth phone and audio, a USB port and a 5-inch Uconnect touchscreen interface. The Altitude model also offers the same appointments, adding 18-inch black wheels and trim pieces, along with a blacked out interior.

Limited models add even more creature comforts, including dual-zone automatic climate control, full keyless ignition and entry, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather upholstery, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.

The off-road-oriented Renegade Trailhawk model comes with the Latitude's list of equipment plus premium upholstery, unique accents and performance-oriented features like all-terrain tires, underbody skid plates, hill descent control and a raised suspension. Deserthawk builds on Trailhawk's features, adding desert-themed accents like an exclusive Mojave Sand exterior color, exclusive decals, black wheels and more.

Two Powertrain Options

The Renegade comes available with two four-cylinder powertrain options: a turbocharged 1.4-liter or a 2.4-liter. The turbo 1.4L is mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission and makes a solid 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. The 2.4L increases output to 180 hp and 175 pound-feet of torque, upgrading to a nine-speed automatic gearbox. Plus, 2.4L 4WD models offer a little bit of tow muscle with a maximum capacity of 2,000 lbs.

The compact Renegade can be had with a front-wheel drive system or a four-wheel drive system with selectable drive modes. For those seeking the most adventure from their vehicle, 2017 Jeep Renegade reviews recommend opting for the Jeep Trailhawk, which features a more advanced 4WD system with low-speed off-road gearing and an additional drive mode.

Available Active Safety Features

Standard safety on the 2017 Jeep Renegade in Scottsdale starts with antilock brakes, hill start assist, and traction and stability control, and all trims above Sport add a rearview camera to the list of equipment. The latest drive-assist features are also available, separated into two packages: Safety and Security and Advanced Technology. The Safety and Security package adds rear-cross traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring, while Advanced Technology tacks on automatic high beams, rear parking sensors, lane departure warning with intervention and a collision mitigation system.
