The 2019 Jeep Renegade is a subcompact SUV that’s as adept at driving on the road as it is crawling over rocks and mud during off-road adventures. According to the New Buffalo Jeep Dealer, the Renegade is head and shoulders above the competition, with a luxurious interior, user-friendly technology features and exceptional off-road ability. You’ll find the price is right, too, which is another reason to take a close look at the 2019 Renegade.
The 2019 Jeep Renegade is offered in four trim levels at dealerships like the Jeep Dealer in New Buffalo: Sport, Latitude, Limited and Trailhawk. All trims other than the Trailhawk get standard front-wheel drive and available all-wheel drive, except the Trailhawk, which gets all-wheel drive standard. All models are motivated by a standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine generating 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque, teamed to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Towing capacity with the base engine and four-wheel drive is rated at 2,000 pounds.
We’ll take a look at the different trim levels available and see what each one has to offer.
The 2019 Jeep Renegade Sport trim comes with 16-inch steel wheels, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a height-adjustable driver's seat, manually adjustable mirrors, a front passenger seat that folds flat, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, a removable cargo floor panel, a six-speaker stereo system, a 5-inch touchscreen, a USB port and Bluetooth.
Renegade Sport buyers can upgrade the model with three available packages: the Sport Appearance package, the Power & Air Group and the Uconnect 7.0 Group. The Sport Appearance package includes alloy wheels, roof rails and privacy glass. The Power & Air Group adds heated and power-adjustable exterior mirrors, cruise control and AC. Opt for the Uconnect 7.0 Group and you’ll get a 7-inch Uconnect touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, satellite radio and dual-zone automatic climate control.
The Renegade Latitude trim starts with the equipment found in the Sport trim’s packages and adds body-colored door handles and mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, foglights, automatic headlights, ambient lighting and a USB port for the second row. Buyers in colder climates will appreciate the available Cold Weather Group package, which comes with automatic wipers with de-icers, heated front seats, rubber floor mats and a heated steering wheel.
The Limited and Trailhawk trims are eligible for an available 1.3-liter turbo-four engine that develops 177 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque, mated to the same nine-speed automatic as the base engine. Limited buyers will get all the features found in the Latitude’s optional Cold Weather Group, plus 18-inch wheels, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather upholstery, a power-adjustable driver's seat, a 40/20/40-split folding rear seat, remote engine start, an upgraded driver information display, keyless ignition and a power outlet.
The Trailhawk starts with several of the Limited’s upgrades and adds four-wheel drive with low-range settings, 17-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, hill descent control, a raised suspension, tow hooks, exclusive exterior and interior trim, underbody skid plates, all-season floor mats and upgraded cloth upholstery.
