2017 Jeep Renegade – One of the most popular vehicles in Jeep’s lineup is definitely the Renegade. Customers like it because of its excellent exterior and powerful engine options. This practical baby with amazing off-road capabilities and efficient engines quickly became one of the most desirable models in business.
Thanks to its small size and advanced technological and safety features, the Jeep Renegade is perfect for every-day drive, especially in crowded cities. If you are seeking a model with excellent road manners, rugged SUV design, bunch of safety and convenience features, and environmental-friendly engines, the 2017 Jeep Renegade has you covered. Let’s check what it brings to the table for 2017.
Exterior of Jeep Renegade
The Jeep Renegade is a relatively new model since it hit the market only two years ago as a brand-new vehicle. The 2017 model year brings the very first refreshment.
Even though the 2017 model year won’t bring any radical changes, we decided to say more about the Renegade because it is really worth the time. You will agree that the best thing when it comes to Renegade’s exterior is that it is a recognizable Jeep’s model.
Of course, the front end of the vehicle hosts a 7-slot vertical grille flanked by the traditional, prominent, rounded headlights. It is likely that the newcomer will get newly designed bumpers and more muscular hood. It will keep its recognizable angles which tie its style with that of the legendary Jeep Wrangler.
The thing we particularly like about the Renegade is that it comes with optional, but highly recommendable roof panels. If you want to bring the outside in, you will find this feature even more appealing. With its amazing ground clearance of 8.7 inches, the Renegade Trailhawk can take you wherever you want.
Jeep Renegade 2017 Interior
Depending on a trim bundle, you can choose between several different styles when it comes to the interior. Even though the carmaker hasn’t released official details about all available features, we believe that the cabin of the newcomer will be modern and sophisticated.
Just like before, four trim levels will be offered, including the Trailhawk, Sport, Latitude, and Limited. Even if you decide to choose, the entry level, you will get a well appointed interior.
The Unconnect navigation system, a 7-inch TFT screen, HD Radio, Sirius XM, MY Sky roof system, and many other features are all in the game as standard.
Engine of Jeep Renegade
Under the hood of the 2017 Jeep Renegade, you won’t find any new engine options. Most probably, the current engines will be upgraded. The carmaker hasn’t released details about power output.
The current 1.4-liter turbocharged inline-4 churns 160 ponies and 184 lb-ft of torque. The 2.4-liter inline-4 makes 180 horses and 185 lb-ft of torque.
The former is teamed up with a 6-speed manual transmission, while the later uses the 9-speed automatic gearbox. Details about oomph of horsepower and torque will be announced closer to vehicle’s release in 2016.
2017 Jeep Renegade Price
Since the carmaker added only several new features to set the Renegade apart as a new model, we believe that the price tag won’t be changed.
The least expensive will be the $18,000 Sport trim level, while the highest-range Trailhawk starts at $26,000.
