2016 Jeep Renegade Review

The award-winning Jeep Renegade delivers an adventurous, spirited performance and rugged capabilities. Its sharp engineering is well-suited for most road conditions, including stop-and-go rush hour traffic and off-road terrain. Wherever you're headed in Queens, Manhattan, or the Bronx, the Renegade provides a sure-footed, athletic performance to get you where you need to go.

Here's everything you should know about the 2016 Renegade.

A Closer Look at the Renegade

The 2016 Jeep Renegade is available in four trim levels-Sport, Latitude, Trailhawk, and Limited. A 160-horsepower 1.4-liter four-cylinder MultiAir Turbo engine comes standard on the Sport and Latitude trims and is paired with a six-speed C635 manual transmission for sharp, playful driving dynamics.

If you'd like to take its performance up a few notches, the Renegade's Trailhawk and Limited trims come with a nine-speed 948TE automatic transmission and a 180-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder MultiAir engine. Together, these features produce a smooth, strong power output and car-like handling, making it easier for you to maneuver through traffic in the Bronx, Queens, and Manhattan.

To add to its powerful performance, each Jeep Renegade 4X4 is available with a Selec-Terrain� system, which lets you optimize traction settings for specific road surfaces. On its lower three trims, the dial comes with knobs for snow, sand, mud, and auto modes, while Trailhawk drivers receive an additional setting for rock.

Best-in-Class All-Wheel Drive

Each 2016 Renegade comes with standard front-wheel drive, with the exception of its Trailhawk trim, which gets standard all-wheel drive. Additionally, the 2016 Renegade is available with two robust 4X4 systems for balanced and precise handling.

Jeep Active Drive is available on the Sport, Latitude, and Limited trims, while the Trailhawk trim gets the Jeep Active Drive Low 4X4 system. Each system switches to two-wheel drive if all-wheel drive isn't needed, lending itself to an efficient performance and athletic driving dynamics.

Jeep Active Drive Low adds extra muscle to the Renegade's ride quality, with a 20:1 crawl ratio that enhances its performance through water, sand, snow, and mud. Whichever you choose, the 2016 Renegade maintains a controlled performance on most rod surfaces.

Renegade Road Trip-Ready Cabin

Every Renegade comes with seating for up to five passengers, with a rear seat that's offered as a 40/20/40 or 60/40 split bench for extra cargo room. A height-adjustable rear cargo floor adds extra storage space, especially if it's paired with the optional My Sky open-air dual roof panel.

Along with these options, the Renegade is available with a heated steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, and heated seats for a luxurious, comfortable ride.

Staying Connected in the 2016 Jeep Renegade

The 2016 Jeep Renegade comes with several technology features that makes it easier than ever to stay connected. Its available smartphone-integrated Uconnect 6.5-inch touchscreen is one of these features and includes a touchscreen, hands-free calling, access to your favorite apps, and more. That way, you can access your favorite information, entertainment, and communication options while your smartphone is stored away.
