2021 Jeep Renegade review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2021 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 2021 Jeep Renegade?

New standard active safety features include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking (Trailhawk excluded), lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist and blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert. A 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system with satellite radio and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity is also standard. New 80th Anniversary, Jeepster and Islander editions add features and unique trim.  

What Features in the 2021 Jeep Renegade Are Most Important?

Standard features include:

  • Cruise control 
  • Heated side mirrors 
  • Dual-zone automatic air conditioning 
  • Push-button start

Available features include:

  • Panoramic moonroof 
  • Leather-trimmed seats 
  • Heated front seats
  • 8.4-inch touchscreen multimedia system with navigation 
  • Automatic high-beam headlights 
  • Adaptive cruise control

Should I Buy the 2021 Jeep Renegade?

The Renegade drives well and has a quiet cabin filled with clever design details. For anyone who’s serious about off-roading, the Trailhawk model is one of the most capable subcompact SUVs you can buy. 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.

Don't do it !

I bought a 2021 Jeep Renegade Sport, nothing but problems, leaking head gasket, cracked windshield washer resivor, and wouldn't you know it both parts are on back order so who knows when or if they will ever come in, very slow acceleration, no power for sure, I don't think I will ever have another one, I have no idea how there are so many 5 star ratings for Renegades, cause they most definitely aren't even a 2 star vehicle, not at all reliable, definitely has a lot of problems, the engineers need to rethink this vehicle. Back to the drawing board folks!

Great Car

This is my second Jeep Renegade, I love it, it runs very well. The only thing I did not like it from my second Jeep was the odor of the new material. I had a headache from breathing that odor for a week. It gets better now. I recommend to everybody this Jeep Renegade.

Danger!’nn

I’ve had numerous issues. Most dangerous was this past weekend. My 2021 anniversary edition stopped completely on a major highway. I will ride in one again.
