The Jeep Renegade is offered with a choice between two 4-cylinder engines. The FIAT-designed 1.4L turbocharged MultiAir engine comes as standard; it delivers 160 hp and 184 lb-ft. The 1.4L turbocharged engine is connected to the front or to all four wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission.
Automatic buyers get the 2.4L Tigershark engine, rated at 180 hp and 175 lb-ft. The bigger, 2.4L engine sends power to the wheels via a 9-speed automatic. Four-wheel drive is a $2,000 option on most trim levels, though the Trailhawk trim includes it as standard equipment.
The 2017 Jeep Renegade is available in six distinct trim levels: Sport, Latitude, Altitude, Limited, Trailhawk and Deserthawk. The Sport trim is the most value-oriented of the trim levels, costing several thousand dollars less than the Latitude, at an MSRP of $17,995.

The Latitude trim adds a little bit of luxury and style to the Renegade. The Latitude trim adds air conditioning, cruise control, a 6-speaker audio system, satellite radio, an additional USB port, a 5-inch touch screen, Bluetooth and a rearview camera.
The Altitude trim is edgy and aggressive. It wraps around a 1.4L turbocharged 4-cylinder and a 6-speed manual transmission. Standard features include a ParkSense rear backup camera and Keyless Go; an optional 180-horsepower 2.4L "Tigershark" 4-cylinder engine and FIAT's 9-speed automatic transmission up the game. Jeep's Active Drive 4WD system is an option with either powertrain.

The smooth highway ride, well-shaped front seats and, optional Uconnect infotainment system give a modern vibe to the cabin. The Renegade's high profile and boxy design provide for plenty of headroom. The Renegade can be configured from rugged to elegant; it goes off-road and handles challenging weather and road conditions.
