2018 Jeep Renegade Houston TX
2018 Jeep Renegade at Texan Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram
For many years now we have been huge fans of the Jeep Renegade. This SUV has it all–from off-roading performance to a comfortable and stylish interior. None of those things should be surprising since Jeep has been making those kinds of vehicles since they began selling to the general public. The 2018 Jeep Renegade is truly a spectacle, coming into this year and dominating the subcompact SUV class with amazing capabilities and a style completely unique to itself. There have even been a few additions to make the Renegade even better as if we thought that was possible. One of those additions is Android Auto and Apple CarPlay that now come with the 7 and 8.4-inch touchscreens. Those touchscreens even come with the latest Uconnect infotainment system, which is consistently being praised for its practicality. Other additions include making a 6-speaker audio system, a rearview camera, and a five-inch touchscreen as standard features.

What safety features come with the Renegade?
An unsung hero of Jeep and their vehicles are the many safety features that go into each machine. Jeep truly does have a real concern about keeping drivers and passengers safe, and that is easily exhibited in the Renegade. Some of those features include speed-sensitive power locks, supplemental side-curtain front and rear airbags, LATCH, panic brake assist, an occupant detection system, electric park brake, electronic roll mitigation, and a driver inflatable knee-bolster airbag.
What engine options are offered with the Renegade?
In order to have as many capabilities as the Renegade does, there needs to be a powerful engine underneath the hood. Luckily enough, Jeep is offering two engine options for the 2018 Renegade. The first engine is a turbocharged 1.4-liter inline-4, which creates 184 lb-ft of torque and works with a six-speed manual transmission. The other engine available is a 2.4-liter inline-4 that produces 175 lb-ft of torque and is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Both of these engines can come in two-wheel or four-wheel drive. Towing is absolutely a possibility with the 2.4-liter, 4WD configuration. That pairing can get you up to 2,000 pounds of towing.
What trims come with the Renegade?
To further show you just how impressive the Renegade is, there are four different trim levels that are offered. That means that there are four more reasons to give this SUV a chance. The first trim is the Renegade Sport, which comes with features like remote locking and unlocking, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, Bluetooth, a removable cargo floor panel, manually adjustable mirrors, a 6-speaker sound system, power windows and locks, 16-inch steel wheels, a fold-flat front passenger seat, a driver information display, push-button ignition, a height-adjustable driver seat, cloth upholstery, and three packages. Those three packages are the Power & Air Group, Sport Appearance, and Uconnect 7.0 Group. Each of them come with many useful add-ons. Another trim you can pick is the Renegade Latitude. This trim adds automatic headlights, all of the three mentioned packages, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, body-colored door handles and mirrors, an additional USB port, fog lights, and ambient LED lighting. The extra luxurious trim, known as the Renegade Limited, comes with an auto-dimming rearview mirror, keyless ignition and entry, a windshield wiper de-icer, a leather-wrapped shift knob, an 8-way power-adjustable driver seat, a 15-volt household-style power outlet, and silver roof rails.
