The market for these vehicles has exploded over the past several years making it extremely competitive. However, there’s only one that offers the perfect blend of on road efficiency and off-road performance.

The 2018 Jeep Renegade stands to be one of the best vehicles on the market. Get to know this vehicle a bit better by checking out our handy review. You’ll learn all the highlights of this stunning SUV and can discover whether or not this model is right for you.

Trail Rated Tough

2018 Jeep Renegade ReviewAs you might expect from any Jeep, the Renegade can perform incredibly well off-road. In fact, the Trailhawk trim has earned the coveted Trail-Rated tough badge. Earning that kind of recognition is no easy task as this vehicle had to overcome some serious obstacles and treacherous off-road conditions in rigorous testing.

With all its off-road features, however, it’s no wonder it was successful. The 4×4 system uses a low-range single-speed power transfer unit with a 20:1 crawl ratio to make sure you maintain control even on rough terrain. You can even make a splash and traverse up to 19 inches of water without issue. With around eight inches of ground clearance and state of the art articulation, nothing will stand in your way.


Just because you embark on an off-road adventure doesn’t mean you can’t take some luxury with you. The interior of the Renegade is surprisingly luxurious with many features you’d only expect in high-end SUVs. Leather seats are available, of course, but you can also get power lumbar support in the front seat. There’s even a Dual-Pane Power Sunroof available so you can let some natural light into the cabin.

Any adventurer knows you need to bring plenty of equipment for the journey. Fortunately, this model has a ton of room for whatever you may need. The redesigned center console and cargo net allow you to keep what’s important nearby while the rear floor and rear seats can be adjusted allowing you to customize your storage space.
