The Renegade is a versatile compact SUV that’s both city-friendly and trail-ready. If you’re considering adding one of these cars to your Jeannette or Delmont area household, check out this 2018 Jeep Renegade review. Inside, we’ll break down everything our Greensburg area customers can expect from this rugged vehicle.
2018 Jeep Renegade Engine Specs
You can expect a healthy kick of power when you look under the hood of the 2018 Renegade. It comes standard with a 2.4L Tigershark I-4 MultiAir®2 engine that generates 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, the Renegade can reach its maximum towing capacity of 2,000 pounds.
If you want a little more torque, opt for the available 1.4L turbocharged I-4 MultiAir® engine that generates 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. The benefit of the MultiAir® engine is that it uses electrohydraulic valves for more controlled air and combustion, which improves power by up to 10 percent and torque by up to 15 percent.
This engine comes standard with a 6-speed manual transmission for optimal control over your driving experience, but if you prefer the smooth and efficient shifting of an automatic, a 9-speed automatic transmission is also available.
Jeep Renegade Handling Capabilities
Of course, you can’t be expected to contain yourself to the main roads all the time, so if you’re heading out on the trail, you’ll have some impressive handling capabilities to keep you moving forward.
For example, the available Selec-Terrain™ System allows you to choose between four or five different drive modes depending on your conditions. The modes are:
Rock mode is also available on select trims, which optimizes low-speed crawl capabilities when operating with the available Jeep Active Drive Low 4X4 system that delivers a Trail Rated® crawl ratio.
The available Jeep Active Drive 4-wheel drive (4WD) system also provides improved traction control by autonomously switching seamlessly between front-wheel drive (FWD) and 4WD at any speed.
When you head for the hills in your 2018 Jeep Renegade, you don’t have to disconnect unless, of course, you want to. The available Uconnect® system keeps you in-touch and informed at the push of a button or the sound of your voice.
Uconnect works with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ to fully integrate your smartphone so you can access your favorite apps like Pandora® and Spotify®, or communicate with Google™ or Siri® to make calls, send texts, play music and locate destinations, all with hands-free voice commands.
You can also keep up-to-date on how the weather will affect your adventure with the available SiriusXM® Travel Link service that allows you to check road conditions, receive weather forecasts, look up fuel prices and more, all from the comfort of the driver’s seat.
