Jeep® is a name that’s been synonymous with off-roading since the brand came into being nearly 80 years ago. And every vehicle across the lineup is an able off-roader, including the subcompact SUV, the Jeep Renegade.
The Jeep Renegade comes with a turbocharged 1.3-liter, 4-cylinder engine that produces 177 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque. This is paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive is standard, but a 4-wheel drive is available.
All Jeep vehicles are built to be tough and take a pounding, and the Jeep Renegade is no exception. When you opt for 4-wheel drive, you’ll be able to take your SUV almost anywhere.
Plus, you can use the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System drive modes for handling mud, sand, and snow. And with added 4-wheel drive, you’ll be able to tow up to 2,000 pounds.
The most capable off-roader in the Jeep Renegade lineup is the Trailhawk trim. In addition to those other drive modes, the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk comes with exclusive Rock mode and Hill Descent Control standard. It also has:
- Rear recovery tow hooks
- Off-road tires
- Two skid plates
- Low-range gearing
- 8.7 inches of ground clearance
For your off-road adventures, you’ll probably need to bring some gear, and you will have little trouble fitting it all in your Jeep Renegade.
You’ll get 18.5 cubic feet behind the back row and 50.8 cubic feet when it’s down. And thanks to the squared-off cargo hold, you’ll be able to accommodate big or bulky items.
