When people think Jeep®, the new 2020 Jeep Renegade usually isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Our dealers at Lester Glenn Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM understand that the Jeep Renegade has been thought to be the black sheep of the Jeep family, and that’s because its meant to appeal to a different kind of Jeep driver.
What makes the Jeep Renegade different? Well, it doesn’t look anything like the other vehicles in the family lineup. It shares closer relation to the Jeep Wrangler and even saying that is a bit of a stretch. Yet at the same time, the front grille, circular headlights, and boxy styling make it one of the most Jeep-like SUVs in the family.
The 2020 Jeep Renegade is a compact SUV that can be made into either an everyday street vehicle or a competent off-roader. The base engine is a 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder that creates 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft worth of torque. With a nine-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, this compact SUV starts out as a street-only kind of car. Although, if you upgrade to the trail-rated Trailhawk trim, you’ll find a 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 177 horsepower and 210 lb-ft worth of torque. On top of that, you’ll get higher ground clearance, a 20:1 crawl ratio, hill-descent control, and an all-wheel-drivetrain.
More than just off-road gear, the 2020 Jeep Renegade is overflowing with modern automotive technology. Keyless ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic emergency braking, active lane control, and a panoramic sunroof can all be purchased for a small price and make the 2020 Jeep Renegade a true joy to drive and ride in.
