The carmaker has announced a new 2023 Jeep Renegade. It does not much differ from the previous 2022 model.
However, there are still some updates for the 2023 Jeep Renegade, such as Detonator Yellow, a new exterior color, and new packages/groups of equipment for select trims – Premium Group, High Altitude Package, Limited Elite Group, Trailhawk Elite Group, Premium Lighting Group.
The 2023 Renegade lineup includes three 4×4 models: Latitude with available Altitude Package and RED Edition, Limited plus a High Altitude Package to it, and Trailhawk. Canadian lineup consists of North (RED Edition, Altitude Package available) and Trailhawk.
The SUV produces up to 177 hp and 210 pound-feet of torque. The max towing capacity is 2,000 pounds. The fuel economy estimated figures are 23/29 mpg (city/highway).
Cons and Pros
Let’s start with the fact that the Renegade is the most capable off-roader in the segment. But it’s still a compact SUV and won’t suit drivers who have to regularly transport adult passengers or need a lot of space for cargo.
Of course, the model has strengths: a solid list of standard features, a straightforward infotainment system and controls, ample headroom inside, a peppy turbocharged engine, and praiseworthy handling.
However, there are disadvantages. In particular, though the cabin looks nice, it is a noise-prone permeable one. The transmission response is sluggish, fuel efficiency is mediocre, and besides, this model has a history of unimpressive safety scores.
So, when selecting a Jeep Renegade, you need to think carefully about what is the priority for you: a fine look, agility, compactness, off-road prowess or safety, cargo volume, and fuel economy.
