The Jeep Renegade has always been recognized as the spunky younger sibling of the Jeep family lineup and that’s far from a problem for Jeep fans. The 2020 Jeep Renegade offers up more of the same great quality, and as a result, continues to be one of our favorite Jeep SUVs at Van Horn Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM of Manitowoc.
Climbing over rocky hills and forging through gushing streams, the Jeep Renegade may be small, but it is far from incapable. While maybe not as powerful as its larger family members, the Jeep Renegade still puts other ‘compact off-road SUVs’ to shame. The 2020 model continues the story, offering up the typical spread of trim options including the Sport, Latitude, Limited, and Trailhawk.
The base model Sport may be the runt of the litter, but it still packs quite a punch with its 2.4-liter inline-4 engine that delivers 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft worth of torque. While low to the ground with a 9-speed automatic transmission and a basic rear-wheel-drivetrain, this is far from the end for this charming compact SUV. Step all the way up to the Trailhawk trim and you get the classic Jeep driving experience complete with a 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that pumps out 177 horsepower and 210 lb-ft worth of torque. This beefier engine is paired with higher ground clearance, an all-wheel-drivetrain, and the kind of off-road prowess that Jeep is known for.
While rugged, the newest Jeep Renegade is still pretty comfortable, offering rear passengers plenty of legroom, and up to 50.8 cubic feet of cargo space to utilize for gear. The 2020 Jeep Renegade also makes a suite of active safety features available, and the option of leather upholstery, 18-inch wheels, and keyless ignition put the newest Jeep Renegade in a category above typical compact SUVs.
