All You Need to Know About The 2019 Jeep Renegade
The Jeep Renegade sees its first refresh in 2019 since it made its debut in 2015. However, the subcompact SUV gets minor style updates. There is a new optional powertrain, off-road capabilities, and it maintains its funky shape.
The Renegade stands out in its class because it’s a subcompact SUV with off-road capability. It can be found on the Trailhawk trim, which has an all-wheel drive, hill descent control, and additional ground clearance.

Available safety features are parallel/perpendicular assist and adaptive cruise control; both are new additions to the Advanced Technology Group for the year of 2019. The class competitor, Toyota CH-R, offers adaptive cruise control (and many other safety features) come standard.

Round headlights? Check. Seven-slotted vertical grille? Check. Rugged attitude? Check. Short overhangs for rock climbing? Check. One of the best things about the 2019 Jeep Renegade is that it looks like a Jeep. A real Jeep.
It’s as if the Renegade is a greatest-hits mixtape engineered from the DNA of the iconic Wrangler and the luxurious Grand Cherokee. Its angles and upright greenhouse even sample from the Willys MB of the 1940s. Still, the Renegade manages to be more modern than retro, with plenty of black trim and curvaceous surfacing.
Although the “X” featured in its unique taillights is derived from army jerrycans. If you’re interested in the test-driving Jeep models near Fort Myers, make sure to check them out at Cape Coral Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM.
