Jeep Renegade MPG
The 2019 Jeep Renegade MPG is a maximum EPA-estimated 24 city/32 highway MPG. Of course, reaching this potential depends on how you outfit this SUV for your drives around the Chicago and Skokie areas.
To help drivers near Park Ridge and Forest Park get the most out of their Jeep Renegade MPG ratings, the team at Marino Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram put together this quick guide.
Jeep Renegade Mileage and Engine Specs
One of the main players in the Jeep Renegade MPG rating is the engine. With this compact SUV, you’ll have your choice between two:
- 1.3L MultiAir®2 Turbo: 177 horsepower, 210 lb-ft of torque
- 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir®2: 180 horsepower, 175 lb-ft of torque
To truly maximize on your Renegade mileage, you’ll want to choose the 1.3L engine, which can get you up to an EPA-estimated 24 city/32 highway MPG.
The 2.4L engine still gets an impressive fuel economy, however, achieving an EPA-estimated 21 city/29 highway MPG or an EPA-estimated 22 city/30 highway MPG depending on your drivetrain.
Both engines are paired with a highly efficient and performance-optimizing 9-speed automatic transmission. They can also both tow up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped.
Jeep Renegade Drivetrain and Fuel Efficiency
When looking at your Renegade fuel economy, it’s important to consider your drivetrain. This SUV gives you two choices here, too:
- Front Wheel Drive (FWD)
- 4-Wheel Drive (4X4)
With the 2.4L engine, FWD will maximize on your MPG rating, getting you an EPA-estimated 22 city/30 highway MPG.
With 4X4, this engine can get an EPA-estimated 21 city/29 highway MPG. The 1.3L engine’s mileage doesn’t change with your drivetrain.
Many drivers in our area like the 4X4 systems, especially for those snowy winter morning commutes or spontaneous off-road adventures. The Renegade gives you two to choose from here: Jeep Active Drive and Jeep Active Drive Low.
Both feature the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System, which lets you choose the right traction control for the type of terrain you face. It includes four different drive modes:
The Jeep Active Drive Low system also comes with a Rock setting for those big-time off-road escapes.
Efficient Driving Habits
In addition to choosing the right mechanical aspects for your Jeep Renegade, you can improve your MPG ratings by making a few simple behavioral changes:
- Schedule regular routine maintenance
- Avoid quick starts and stops
- Keep your tires properly inflated to the recommended PSI
- Turn off your car when you aren’t actively driving
It’s especially important to pay attention to that first point, particularly if you take your SUV out on the trails regularly. Vehicles with a more active lifestyle often require more frequent routine maintenance to keep them road-ready and efficient.
Of course, these behaviors aren’t guaranteed to get you farther between fill-ups, but they are known to help in many cases.
