Best-in-class off-road capability thanks to two all-new 4x4 systems

Leveraging 4x4 technology from the Jeep Cherokee, the Jeep Renegade offers two of the most advanced and intelligent 4x4 systems in its class, all to deliver best-in-class off-road capability. Both systems can provide up to 1,475 lb.-ft. of the engine's available torque to any one wheel, for optimal grip and traction: Jeep Active Drive - full-time 4x4 system and Jeep Active Drive Low - class-exclusive full-time 4x4 system with 20:1 crawl ratio.
 
Innovation is also at the forefront of any new Jeep vehicle, and the Renegade features the segment's first disconnecting rear axle and power take-off unit (PTU) - all to provide Jeep Renegade 4x4 models with enhanced fuel economy. Jeep Active Drive and Active Drive Low 4x4 systems instantly engage when 4x4 traction is needed.
 
Both Jeep Active Drive and Active Drive Low 4x4 systems include the Jeep Selec-Terrain system, providing up to five modes (Auto, Snow, Sand and Mud modes, plus exclusive Rock mode on the Trailhawk model) for the best four-wheel-drive performance on- or off-road and in any weather condition.

Trail Rated: Renegade Trailhawk 4x4 model  

For customers who demand the most off-road capability from their Jeep vehicles, the Renegade Trailhawk model delivers best-in-class Trail Rated 4x4 capability with: Standard Jeep Active Drive Low with 20:1 crawl ratio. Selec-Terrain system with exclusive Rock mode. Increased ride height 0.8 inches to 8.7 inches of ground clearance. Skid plates, and signature red front and rear tow hooks. Unique fascias deliver 30.5 degree approach, 25.7 degree breakover and 34.3 degree departure angles. Unique 17-inch wheels with aggressive on-road and off-road tires. Up to 8.1 inches of wheel articulation. Hill-descent Control. Up to 19 inches of water fording. Up to 2,000-lb. towing capability with 2.4-liter Tigershark engine and available tow package.

A global Jeep design for a rapidly growing global brand 

From the start, Jeep designers knew the Renegade would need to deliver best-in-class off-road capability with city-sized proportions that exuded the brand's rugged style while at the same time enhancing versatility, maneuverability and style. Additionally, designers were tasked to create an all-new SUV that would symbolize the Jeep brand's renowned American design and ingenuity, as it would mark the brand's first entry into the small SUV segment in more than 100 markets around the globe. Last, Renegade had to offer the open-air freedom that dates back to its 1941 roots, with the Willys MB Jeep.
 
The result is the Jeep Renegade, a vehicle that builds on the Jeep Wrangler's powerful stance, and features fresh new styling with rugged body forms and aggressive proportions, which enable best-in-class approach and departure angles purposely designed to deliver best-in-class off-road capability. And for segment-exclusive panoramic views, two available "My Sky" open-air roof panel systems conveniently stow to provide passengers open-air freedom with ease.

          

Interior exudes a rugged and energetic appearance 

The Jeep Renegade interior features a rugged and energetic appearance that builds upon Jeep's legendary brand heritage. This small SUV's precisely crafted detail, innovative and high-quality color and material appointments, state-of-the-art technology, and clever storage draw inspiration from contemporary extreme sports gear and lifestyles.
 
The interior of the Jeep Renegade has a distinctive form language, which Jeep designers have titled "Tek-Tonic." This design theme is defined by the intersections of soft and tactile forms with rugged and functional details. Major surfaces, such as the sculpted soft-touch instrument panel, are intersected with bold functional elements like the passenger grab handle - indispensable for off-road adventures and borrowed from its big brother, the legendary Jeep Wrangler. Unique "protective clamp fasteners," anodized design accents and inspired colors are derived from extreme sports equipment, while the newly familiar "X" shapes inspired by its roof and tail lamps add to Renegade's Tek-Tonic interior look. And to make sure all of the needed passenger gear fits, the Renegade is designed with an efficient and flexible interior package that includes a fold-forward front-passenger seat and removable and height-adjustable cargo floor panel.

Class-exclusive "My Sky" roof systems: continuing Jeep brand's open-air freedom since 1941

Expanding the brand's open-air freedom that originated with the legendary 1941 Willys MB Jeep, the Jeep Renegade offers two class-exclusive "My Sky" open-air roof systems. With a manual removable, or premium power tilt/slide with removable feature, the innovative "My Sky" roof-panel systems quickly bring the outdoors inside. Designed for convenience, the honeycomb fiberglass polyurethane roof panels are lightweight and stow neatly in the rear cargo area. For added design detail, both "My Sky" roof systems feature a debossed "X" stamped into the roof that exude strength and play on the brand's utilitarian history.

Best-in-class off-road capability with world-class on-road driving dynamics 

Designed and engineered to first and foremost deliver legendary Jeep 4x4 capability, the Renegade is the first vehicle from FCA US to use the all-new "small-wide 4x4 architecture."
 
With its fully independent suspension, capable of up to 8.1 inches (205 mm) of wheel articulation and 8.7 inches (220 mm) of ground clearance (Trailhawk model), Renegade raises the bar in the small SUV segment with best-in-class off-road capability. Extensive use of advanced steels, composites and advanced computer-impact simulations enable the Renegade's architecture to deliver world-class torsional stiffness and the Jeep brand's durability required for Trail Rated adventures. 
 
The Renegade is the first Jeep SUV to integrate Koni's frequency selective damping (FSD) front and rear strut system. This damping system enables the Jeep Renegade to deliver world-class road-holding and handling characteristics.

World's first small SUV with nine-speed automatic transmission

Like the Jeep Cherokee, the Jeep Renegade has raised the bar - this time in the small SUV class - with the first available nine-speed automatic transmission. When paired with the 2.4-liter Tigershark engine with MultiAir2 (4x2 or 4x4), the nine-speed transmission delivers numerous benefits customers will appreciate, including aggressive launches, smooth power delivery at highway speeds and improved fuel efficiency versus competitive six-speed automatic transmissions.

          

More than 30 mpg highway

True to the Jeep brand, the Renegade offers customers a best-in-class combination of fuel efficiency and off-road capability, including two MultiAir four-cylinder engines that provide more than 30 miles per gallon (mpg) on the highway.
 
Efficiency and refinement also are hallmarks of FCA US 16-valve, 2.4-liter Tigershark I-4 engine with the MultiAir2 electro-hydraulic fully variable valve-lift system. The high-tech engine produces 180 horsepower, 175 lb.-ft. of torque and is paired exclusively to the segment's first nine-speed automatic transmission on 4x2 and 4x4 models. The 2.4-liter engine's MultiAir technology uses a column of oil in place of the traditional mechanical link between the camshaft and intake valves to maximize intake manifold pressure and significantly reduce pumping losses. MultiAir2 takes the innovation further by simultaneously controlling both valve opening and closing events to more effectively manage combustion quality and compression ratio, all to improve fuel economy and performance.

The 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo four-cylinder engine offers 160 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque to provide a spirited driving experience on Jeep Renegade Sport and Latitude 4x2 and 4x4 models. Paired with a six-speed manual transmission, the 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine transmits its power through high-strength components throughout the drivetrain, including equal-length half shafts and a 4.438 final-drive ratio. Boost pressure is dynamically managed to provide a broad torque curve over a wide variety of ambient conditions, with a peak pressure of 22 psi at 4,000 rpm. Innovative MultiAir valve-actuation technology controls intake air cylinder-by-cylinder and stroke-by-stroke, reducing carbon-dioxide emissions and boosting fuel-economy up to 7.5 percent, compared with an engine with conventional valvetrain.

Segment-exclusive technologies once found only on premium SUVs 

The 2016 Jeep Renegade offers technology features once found only in upper-segment vehicles, and makes them attainable to customers in the growing small SUV segment - including award-winning Uconnect Access, Uconnect touchscreens and the segment's largest full-color instrument cluster.

Renegade features up to 70 advanced safety and security features

The 2016 Jeep Renegade is available with up to 70 safety and security features, including the segment's first availability of Forward Collision Warning-Plus and LaneSense Departure Warning-Plus.
 
In addition, engineers added both active and passive safety and security features, including Blind-spot Monitoring; Rear Cross Path detection; ParkView rear backup camera with dynamic grid lines; electronic stability control (ESC) with electronic roll mitigation and seven standard air bags.
