The Renegade's cheeky, retro appearance stands out in this segment. The seven-slot grille is immediately recognizable as purely Jeep, while the rounded headlamps and trapezoidal wheel arches surrounded by plastic cladding give it a purposeful air. The base model gets 17-inch aluminum wheels, but up to 19-inch alloys are available on upper trims. Daytime running lamps and power-adjustable mirrors are standard across the range, with features like automatic headlamps, cornering front fog lamps, and rain-sensing wipers becoming available as you cycle through the trim levels. A power dual-pane sunroof is available, as is a removable sunroof for that authentic open-air Jeep experience.
The subcompact Jeep Renegade SUV measures 66.5 inches in height, 79.6 inches in width (including the side mirrors), and 166.6 inches in length. The wheelbase is 101.2 inches long. This makes the Jeep a little bigger than the Subaru Crosstrek, but shorter than the Jeep Cherokee. Curb weight ranges from 3,210 pounds for base Latitude to 3,532 lbs for the Trailhawk 4WD.
The Renegade is a solid off-roader with ground clearance maxing out at 8.7 inches for the lifted Trailhawk 4x4; the 4x2's is 6.7 inches. The SUV's approach angle varies between 17.9 inches (for the 4x2) to 30.5 inches (for the Trailhawk 4x4), while the breakover angle is between 21.2 (4x2) and 25.7 inches (Trailhawk 4x4). The departure angle starts at 29.7 inches for the 4x2 and goes up to 34.3 inches for the Trailhawk 4x4.

The color palette has been tweaked, and base models come only in Black clear coat, Graphite Gray, Slate Blue, Colorado Red, or Alpine White. (RED) edition cars lose out on Slate Blue while the Trailhawk gains Sting-Gray as an option, too. All colors are available to the top-spec Limited, too. We've seen Detonator Yellow make an appearance, but it was not added to the configurator at the time of writing. The Renegade has extensive black body cladding, which works quite well when offset against the more adventurous color choices.
