2022 Jeep Renegade Review
The Jeep Renegade is a subcompact crossover SUV produced by FCA US under their Jeep marque that has been in production since 2014. It competes with Subaru Crosstrek, Kia Seltos, Ford Ecosport, Honda HR-V and Flat 500x in the international market.
The 2022 Renegade comes with two engine options; a 4-cylinder 2.4-L engine generates 180hp or a 4-cylinder 1.3-L turbocharged engine produces 177hp.
Even with the optional panoramic sunroof, the Renegade’s interior is open and large, with plenty of headroom and shoulder room. Legroom in the back is, however, limited for the class.
The square-shaped doors open wide, and the seats are high enough to allow for easy entry and exit. The high windshield roof pillars limit forward view, but the huge side and rear windows, combined with the large outside mirrors, allow seeing out the sides and back easier.
The Renegade is near the bottom of the class, with only 18.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind its rear seats. At the very least, the cargo room is boxy in design, and the load floor is low.
In the front, there’s a bin for your phone or sunglasses in front of the gear shifter, and the door pockets are big enough to store tiny water bottles.
The 2022 Renegade’s playful design is unique. The seven-slot grille is instantly recognizable as Jeep, while the rounded headlamps and trapezoidal wheel arches encased in plastic cladding lend the vehicle a purposeful appearance. The base model comes standard with 16-inch black-style steel wheels, but higher trim levels provide up to 19-inch alloys. Daytime running lamps and power-adjustable mirrors are standard across the range, with optional equipment such as automated headlamps, cornering front fog lamps, and rain-sensing wipers becoming available as trim levels advance.
The Jeep Renegade SUV has a height of 66.5 inches, a width of 79.6 inches (including the side mirrors), and a length of 166.6 inches. The wheelbase measures 101.2 inches in length.
