2017 Jeep Renegade Overview

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

While only a couple of years old, the Jeep Renegade is quickly becoming somewhat of a staple for the brand. While certainly not as popular as the Cherokee or Wrangler lineups, the subcompact SUV still filled in for a segment that many Jeep enthusiasts had been craving for quite some time.

In 2017, not much has changed for the Jeep Renegade. However, due to the model’s current popularity, it’s doubtful that Jeep would want things to change all the much.

The latest model of the Jeep Renegade reaches a standard fuel efficiency rating of 24/31 City/Highway mpg. Of course, models that come equipped with the more powerful 2.4-liter I4 MultiAir engine have to sacrifice some of that efficiency, settling instead for a 21/29 City/Highway mpg score.
