2016 Jeep Renegade

2016-Jeep-Renegade-PLACEMENT

Overview: Looking for all the world like something a Pokémon Go character would drive, the diminutive Renegade is the latest Jeep to bound into the market. The small four-door hatchback shares its platform and its Italian assembly line with the Fiat 500X. It’s priced between the unloved (and soon to be replaced) Patriot and the larger, more cherished Cherokee. It’s the squarest Jeep this side of a Wrangler, hiding its car roots behind a traditional seven-slot grille, round headlamps, a high stance, squared-off wheel wells, and a semi-flat windshield that would do any Jeep CJ proud. The Renegade lineup starts at just under $19,000 with the entry-level Sport and includes the mainstream Latitude, the leather-appointed Limited, and the raised, $27,740 Trail Rated 4WD-only Trailhawk. All other Renegades come with front-wheel drive or, for $2000 extra, on-demand four-wheel drive. Those who choose the Sport or the Latitude can score a six-speed manual gearbox mated to a 160-hp 1.4-liter turbo four-cylinder from the Fiat 500 Abarth. Other Renegades are motivated by a 180-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder and nine-speed automatic combo. READ MORE ››
