Dimensions

2019 Jeep Renegade ReviewThe 2019 Jeep Renegade is a compact SUV with enough room to seat five. Thanks to its squared shape, passengers in both the front and rear can enjoy over 40 inches of headroom without a sunroof.

Behind the second row of seats, you’ll find a cargo area that offers 18.5 cubic feet of space. An adjustable cargo floor is available to increase storage versatility. Keep it flat for quick loading and unloading, or move it down when you need more room.

The compact size of the Renegade—it’s only 166.6 inches long—allows you to maneuver through small areas and into tight parking spots. However, an available Parallel and Perpendicular Park and Exit Assist system makes it even more streamlined. With this feature, the vehicle steers itself while directing you to control its speed and direction.

Performance

Just because it’s compact doesn’t mean the Renegade can’t take on rough terrain. In fact, every model comes with the Trail Rated® badge. This means it excels in off-roading capabilities like traction, water fording, maneuverability, articulation, and ground clearance.

A new 1.3L turbocharged engine is available to power the Renegade. This engine uses an efficient 9-speed automatic transmission and engine stop-start technology to help it achieve an EPA-estimated 24 city/32 highway MPG. Meanwhile, it generates 177 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque.

Design

2019 Jeep Renegade Review

A unique front fascia helps the Renegade set itself apart from other Jeep models. For 2019, this front fascia has been upgraded with details like an angled bottom, which gives it a more adventure-ready look. The grille also received some style updates, but still has the signature 7-slot design found in every model across the Jeep lineup.

You can identify the Renegade quickly from behind thanks to its unique X-shaped taillights, which have an available LED upgrade. Other exterior changes include the addition of three new colors: Bikini, Slate Blue, and Sting-Gray.

Jeep is known for offering an open-air experience, and that’s true even in the 2019 Renegade. A My Sky® Removable Panel Sunroof has two panels—one for each row of seating—that can be removed for more fresh air.

Once removed, these panels store flat in the rear cargo area. You won’t find a sunroof like this in any other SUV—which is just one of the ways the Renegade lives up to its name.
