2016 Jeep Renegade Review

Spirited and adventurous, the award-winning 2016 Jeep Renegade delivers rugged refinement and robust capabilities. Its nimble handling is well suited for both off-road exploring and rush hour traffic through Butler, Kinnelon, and Bloomingdale, especially with its available 4x4 and engine lineup.

If you're interested in learning more about the 2016 Jeep Renegade, check out our review below:

The Renegade: A Closer Look

The 2016 Jeep Renegade is offered in four trims: Sport, Latitude, Trailhawk, and Limited. The Sport and Latitude trims are equipped with a standard 160-horsepower 1.4-liter four-cylinder MultiAir Turbo engine and a six-speed C635 manual transmission for a playful yet practical ride quality.

The Renegade's higher two trims, Trailhawk and Limited, take performance up a few notches with a 180-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder MultiAir Engine and a nine-speed 948TE automatic transmission, which are offered on Sport and Latitude models as well. These features generate smooth handling so you can maneuver through traffic in Butler, Kinnelon, and Bloomingdale with ease.

To complement its driving dynamics, every Jeep Renegade 4X4 offers an available Selec-Terrain® system that allows you to tune its traction settings according to road conditions. The dial includes settings for snow, sand, mud, and auto modes on its lower three trims, and Trailhawk drivers receive an additional rock setting for unsurpassed off-road agility.

Best-in-Class AWD Capability

With the exception of its Trailhawk trim, every Jeep Renegade comes with standard front-wheel drive. However, two 4X4 systems are available for precise handling, balanced weight distribution, and maximized road grip.

The Sport, Latitude, and Limited trims are available with Jeep Active Drive, while Trailhawk trims get a Jeep Active Drive Low 4X4 system. Each uses a rear axle disconnect system that switches to two-wheel drive when all-wheel drive isn't necessary. With these features, the Renegade balances handling and efficiency wherever your journey leads.

The Trailhawk's Jeep Active Drive Low system adds a 20:1 crawl ratio for enhanced off-road Trail Rated® capabilities. Whether you're driving through mud, water, sand, or snow, the Trailhawk's Jeep Active Drive Low system provide a controlled, dexterous performance.

Refreshed and Flexible Interior

With adjustable seating for up to five passengers, the 2016 Jeep Renegade has a versatile interior can carry almost all of your gear.

Second-row seats are offered as either a 60/40 split folding bench or a 40/20/40 split with a cargo pass through, which gives you plenty of room to fit passengers, groceries, luggage, camping supplies, snowboards, and more. If you need extra space, the Jeep Renegade's height-adjustable rear cargo floor increases your storage options, especially with the available My Sky open-air dual-panel roof.

The 2016 Renegade is also available with heated seats, a heated steering wheel, and dual-zone climate control so every occupant rides in premium comfort.

Cool, Calm, and Connected

Staying in touch with friends, family, and coworkers has never been easier with the Jeep Renegade's available Uconnect® 6.5 system. With the smartphone-integrated Uconnect 6.5-inch touchscreen, you can make hands-free calls, send text messages, and play your favorite music while your mobile device is tucked away.

GPS navigation, Wi-Fi, and a SiriusXM® satellite radio description are also available with the Jeep Renegade's Uconnect system, which adds an unsurpassed level of convenience and simplicity to your daily routine.
