With Jeep making a flurry of updates for some of its other models, it can be easy to forget about the Renegade. The Renegade serves as Jeep’s gateway into the compact SUV segment, and the brand chose to revamp the model’s equipment arsenal for 2023.

New Technology, Packages Add Freshness

The Renegade’s changes for 2023 include the base front-wheel-drive Sport trim being dropped in favor of a more simplified lineup — Latitude, Trailhawk and Limited — that’s now four-wheel drive only.

This lineup also comes with reworked packaging. The Latitude’s Premium Group comes with features such as an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and roof rails.

Meanwhile the Limited trim gets standard adaptive cruise control, and its optional Limited Elite Group includes full LED lighting as well as automatic high beams and park assist technology. A separate High Altitude Package focuses on exterior enhancements, adding gloss-black badging, gray grille rings and 19-inch Granite Crystal aluminum wheels.

Trailhawks still maintain their trail-ready personality, but an all-new Trailhawk Elite Group features leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel and a windshield wiper de-icer. The Trailhawk Premium Lighting Group includes LED lighting enhancements.

Simplified Trim Ladder Powered by Carryover Performance

Jeep has not yet released pricing for the 2023 Renegade lineup but did confirm that order books are now open. All trims are still powered by a 177-horsepower, turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The full lineup, including special editions, is as follows: Latitude, Altitude, (Red), Trailhawk and Limited.
