2020 Jeep Renegade review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Jeep Renegade?

The Jeep Renegade is a subcompact SUV with seating for five people. It comes standard with a 180-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and a nine-speed automatic transmission. A 177-hp, turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder is also available. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are offered, and competitors include the Chevrolet Trax, Honda HR-V and Hyundai Kona.

What’s New on the 2020 Jeep Renegade?

A Kenwood premium stereo is now available for all trim levels but the Sport.

What Features in the 2020 Jeep Renegade Are Most Important?

Standard convenience features include cruise control, heated side mirrors and air conditioning. Available features include a panoramic moonroof, leather-trimmed seats, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, and navigation. Available active safety features include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist and automatic high-beam headlights. For anyone who’s serious about off-roading, the Trailhawk is one of the most capable subcompact SUVs you can buy.

2020 Jeep Renegade Vs. 2020 Chevrolet Trax: How Do They Compare?

The Renegade and Trax have a lot in common besides their city-friendly proportions. The Trax offers the higher seating position and available all-wheel drive many SUV shoppers want, but it doesn’t go as far as the Renegade does in Trailhawk form. If we’re being honest, however, not many subcompact SUV owners are venturing deep into the woods. The Chevy’s four-cylinder engine is weak, but the Trax does offer a lot of standard tech features.

Should I Buy the 2020 Jeep Renegade?

The Renegade drives well and features a quiet cabin filled with clever design details. As we’ve pointed out, the Trailhawk has excellent off-road credentials. We’ve found the nine-speed automatic transmission to be balky at times, so a test drive consisting of city, suburban and highway driving is recommended before purchasing.

Windshield keep cracking

I love my jeep but this will be the third windshield I have to replace the first two times a rock hit me this time I just came out and my windshield was cracking I am wondering if anyone else is having this issue other than that I love my jeep


Can’t wait to get rid of this car. No pickup!!!

No pick up at all, and when you’re low on oil the throttle icon comes on before lol oil icon comes on and you stall while you’re driving. Very dangerous. And it just Maybe my car but my 2020 jeep renegade transmission leaked transmission fluid and I needed a whole new transmission in 2021. I Can’t wait to get rid of this car.


Affordability is a plus, dependability too

I love the vehicle. It rides good. My only complaints are the ease in which the seats adjust and the fact it does not have a CD Player in it.
