A Glance at the New 2021 Renegade

Frisco CDJR – Renegade
While there are several subcompact crossovers out there, none is better prepared for the roughest paths or unpaved roads than the Jeep Renegade. The nameplate has been around for seven model years now, and the 2021 iteration received a few updates to keep it fresh in its class. The 2021 Jeep Renegade is split into the following trims:
SPORT: The Sport is the base-level trim of the 2021 Renegade. Under its hood is a 2.4-liter 180-horsepower four-cylinder engine, which is hitched to a nine-speed automatic transmission for smooth shifts. With this powertrain, the Renegade Sport achieves remarkable fuel economy, which is estimated at 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. However, there’s the option of a four-wheel-drive (4×4) system called Active Drive. Featuring a rear wheel axle disconnect that seamlessly switches between two-wheel and four-wheel drive, Active Drive helps increase efficiency when 4×4 capability isn’t needed. Active Drive comes with the Selec-Terrain Traction Management System, which provides four modes—Auto, Snow, Sport, and Sand/Mud—for enabling all-weather capability. Add the Class III tow package, and the Renegade can tow up to 2,000 lbs. A five-seater, the Renegade supplies two rows of cloth-trimmed seats; passenger volume and cargo volume are measured at 100 lbs. and 50.8 cubic feet, respectively. For infotainment, the 2021 model gets a boost by the 5-inch touchscreen of yesteryear replaced with a larger, 7-inch one and the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. Other infotainment elements include the following:
• Six speakers
• AM/FM radio tuner
• Bluetooth wireless technology for hands-free phone calling and audio streaming
• USB port for playing content from or charging portable devices
• Trial subscription to SiriusXM Radio
Remote keyless entry and push-button engine start to make it easy to unlock the doors and start the engine, respectively. Automatic climate controls are placed on the driver and front passenger sides to adjust heating or cooling preferences. For driver assistance, the vehicle now has a rearview camera, and that’s in addition to the following technologies:
• Front collision warning to alert you of an impending front-end collision
• Automatic emergency braking to apply stopping power when needed to avoid a front-end collision
• Blind-spot warning to watch out for vehicles in your blind spots and consequently avoid side crashes
• Rear cross-traffic alert to watch out for vehicles or people crossing the path behind you when backing out of somewhere
• Lane departure warning to alert you when leaving your intended lane of travel without signaling
• Lane keep assist to apply steering pressure to get you back to your intended lane of travel
In the event of a crash, the Renegade can deploy any of its six airbags, which consist of two frontal impact airbags, two side impact airbags, and two side curtain airbags.
JEEPSTER: At the Jeepster trim level, the Renegade receives a pair of convenience upgrades. Remote keyless entry is elevated to proximity keyless entry level to enable access by simply having the key fob on you, rather that pressing a button. The addition of remote start means that you can start the engine before you even get to the vehicle.
LATITUDE: The Latitude includes the Sport’s features plus a second USB port.
UPLAND: Remote start returns at the Upland trim level. Also added are a front skid plate, tow hooks, and a restyled front bumper to boost off-road ground clearance. Notably, the Upland is one of three Renegade models with standard 4×4.

80TH ANNIVERSARY: Granite Crystal Metallic exterior and sleek bezel finishes and a commemorative badge set the 80th Anniversary Edition apart from the other trims. In addition, this commemorative model of the Jeep brand gains an 8.4-inch touchscreen navigation system and HD Radio technology.
ISLANDER: True to its name, the Islander gets an exclusive beach-inspired design with a blue exterior finish and a power sunroof.

TRAILHAWK: The aptly-named Trailhawk is optimized for the roughest of trails with its exclusive all-terrain tires, front and rear skid plates, and higher ground clearance. Also exclusive to the Trailhawk is standard Active Drive Low 4×4, which builds on the Active Drive system by adding a 20-to-1 crawl ratio and low range for trail-rated capability. A turbocharged 177-horsepower 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine takes the place of the 2.4-liter four-cylinder.
LIMITED: Powered by the same turbocharged engine as the Trailhawk, the range-topping Limited trim stands apart with its luxury-oriented enhancements, which include leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, eight-way power adjustability on the driver’s seat, and front-seat heating. In addition, the Limited joins the Jeepster in gaining proximity keyless entry and remote start, as well as the 80th Anniversary model in having a navigation system, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, and HD Radio. Notably, the Limited joins the Upland and Trailhawk in having standard 4×4.
