2017 Jeep Renegade review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

What it is: The subcompact Renegade SUV may look like a pure American Jeep, but underneath is a modified platform shared with the Fiat 500L that Jeep calls its “small-wide 4×4 architecture.” The five-seat Renegade is built in Italy and offers a choice of two four-cylinder engines, a manual or automatic transmission, and front- or four-wheel drive. The Trailhawk trim level is equipped for off-roading and its four-wheel-drive system includes a low range. Competitors include the Chevrolet Trax, Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-3.
New for 2017
Keyless Go push-button start is now standard while high-intensity-discharge headlights and automatic high-beam headlights are available.

It's worth the money best vehicle I have ever own

Good vehicle drives smooth easy to handle great in the snow not great on gas enjoy this jeep RENAGADE is OK with me would recommend it to anyone thinking of trading for 2023 model soon


Worst car I’ve owned.

Transmission on my new still under warranty vehicle had to be replaced. I was given a refurbished transmission even though my new car is still under warranty. Worst reliable vehicle and worst service I have ever experienced. So regretful I ever bought a Jeep! NEVER AGAIN!


excellent car

Comfortable, low maintenance, and great driving on the snow which is a must feature where I live. I love the sporty style of this car.
