The 2015 Jeep Renegade is Jeep’s (newest) answer to the small-crossover boom and will likely replace aging models such as the Compass and Liberty. The small, FIAT-based crossover is built in Italy, but serves a much larger, global audience. No fewer than 16 different powertrains will be stuffed under the hood worldwide, but for America, we get only two engines: a 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder or 2.4-liter four.
The Renegade is Jeep’s newest crossover and shares most of its architecture with the coming FIAT 500X. Although Jeep’s funky crossover can carry the “Trail Rated” Jeep badge, most of the cute ute’s duties will be limited to light detail and the occasional foul-weather day. For 4-wheel-drive (4WD) versions of the Renegade, Jeep used its “Active Drive,” an electronically controlled, fully disconnecting 4WD system that doesn’t use a center differential and is controlled only by the car’s internal computers—no buttons to press or levers to pull.
For fans of the Jeep brand, that may sound like blasphemy, but for many shopping in the small SUV category, that may also sound like par for the course.
Nonetheless, the crossover’s high hip point, excellent outward visibility, and 30-mpg estimated fuel economy may speak more loudly to a typical small SUV buyer than brute-force off-road capability.
This Renegade Trailhawk has the bigger 2.4-liter four engine, dubbed TigerShark, that was taken from the Dodge Dart, Jeep Cherokee, and other global cars and married to the same 9-speed automatic transmission in those previously mentioned cars. . The 2.4-liter engine’s 180 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque rating are only slightly more potent than the smaller motor's, but the TigerShark can tow 2,000 pounds and drinks Regular fuel. With 4WD, the 2.4-liter returns 21/29/24.
Both engines are surprisingly competent in their respective arenas—the smaller motor for around-town duty, The bigger 2.4L engine for light off-roading. If you’re expecting to need 4WD at some point in the future, you may want to lean toward the 2.4-liter engine, although there’s no way to avoid the 9-speed in that configuration.
As in the Renegade’s main competitors, the Kia Soul and Nissan Juke, there is a surprising amount of feedback from the engine that actually makes driving the small Jeep fun. The 1.4-liter engine is expressive without being loud or annoying and makes its peak torque at a relatively low point (2,500 rpm) in its power band, so it’s actually a little fun, too. At 500 pounds lighter than the Cherokee, the Renegade’s 2.4-liter engine is a better fit in the smaller crossover as well.
Jeep markets the Renegade as 4WD, but that has been a point of debate. Although the system can fully disconnect from the rear wheels, the absence of a transfer case or center differential has sparked 4WD versus AWD debates in plenty of forums. In practice, the system does all the thinking for you and may be closer kin to AWD systems than 4WD—even though it’s still in a Jeep.
Even though it wears a Jeep badge, the Renegade is set up for mostly on-road duty. The Renegade’s steering is light—almost over-boosted—and makes for easier parking and around-town maneuvering. Access to cargo in the rear is easy and around hip level (30 inches), and the elevated seating position combined with a steeply raked windshield, lower belt line, and higher roof offer better outward visibility than others in its segment.
For rear passengers, the Renegade offers 35 inches of ample legroom in the back. A 6-foot-2-inch frame can fit into the back seats relatively easily, and climbing in and out is surprisingly effortless thanks to wide doors and a low step-in height. This makes rear access a breeze.
The Renegade's appeal to older buyers may be a bit of a surprise given its outward appearance. Funky tail lamps, bright red tow hooks, and a paintball-splatter-inspired color scheme on the dash may not scream “retirement village,” but the car’s affordability and capability certainly do.
A word about the interior style if you find yourself cringing at words like “Trespass Black” and interior trim inspired by sand surfing or BASE jumping: It plays better in person. The Renegade’s interior is surprisingly smart considering the size of its interior; its center air-conditioning vents, for instance, are placed on top of the dash, which makes way for bigger infotainment systems and normal-size climate controls. Accents around the air vents help break up what could be a sea of black plastic.
In FWD spec, the Renegade sports a modest 6.7 inches of ground clearance. That figure is better in 4WD versions, 7.9 inches, and tops out in the Trailhawk, which has 8.7 inches of ground clearance. The Renegade’s short overhangs and relatively small wheelbase make it surprisingly nimble off-road, even if its engines can’t power it up everything, and Jeep’s terrific Active Drive system (Active Drive Low is available on the Trailhawk with a 20:1 crawl ability) makes the most of its smaller powertrain.
The Renegade’s tech headline may well be its 7-inch multifunction display in the gauge cluster, which is available in Limited and Trailhawk trims. The display is bright and easily readable, a gee-whiz technology touch that would be found on crossovers that cost much more than the Limited’s starting price of $24,795.
From there, the Renegade is on par with much of its competition. In all trims, the Renegade sports Jeep’s Uconnect infotainment suite, a relatively unfussy but long-in-the-tooth entertainment unit that varies based on price and trim. In standard Sport models, a basic AM/FM radio with auxiliary ports comes standard. For $2,385 more, buyers upgrade to a 5-inch touchscreen display with Bluetooth connectivity, satellite radio, a backup camera, and air conditioning (!), among other upgrades. In Latitude, Limited, and Trailhawk versions, the system can be improved further to include navigation and a slightly larger, 6.5-inch display.
Like other Jeeps, the Renegade is littered with small visual cues that you’re driving a Jeep. Trail maps stamped into rubber mats, X patterns that mimic jerry cans, and trapezoidal bezels are littered throughout the small cabin. You can look for them all in one go, or discover them one-by-one, but the stamped materials seem like an inexpensive way to draw drivers closer to their vehicles—if only a little bit.
This Renegade also has another party trick: My Sky—optional, removable roof panels. These panels are surprisingly light, come off fairly easily and fit exactly in the rear cargo area.
This Trailhawk is equipped with the optional, better looking, premium black Leather with red stiching accents.
The Renegade features 18.5 cubic feet of cargo area with the seats up, 50.8 feet with seats folded down (and they actually fold flat, which is nice).
All Renegades have antilock brake and traction-control systems, as well as advanced multistage airbags for driver and passenger. A suite of optional safety systems including lane-departure warning, forward-collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-path detection are available on Latitude and higher versions.
Outward visibility may be the Renegade’s best safety feature, and Jeep did a very good job on that front.
