2018 Jeep Renegade Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team


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. 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 2018

Interior updates include new seat fabric, bezels and colors as well as two new storage areas in the front row. A backup camera is now standard along with a 5-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Bluetooth connectivity. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity is included with the uplevel 7- and 8.4-inch touchscreen multimedia systems. A dual-pane power sunroof is available.

Well Worth the Money!

by Scubarabbi from Wentzville, MO on May 27, 2020

I purchased a 2018 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk because my company vehicle is a Jeep Compass and I couldn’t be happier. I owned a Toyota FJ 10 years ago and this Renegade is the closest SUV I could find. ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
