 “The Jeep stable of SUVs continues to be recognized for superior on- and off-road performance and the addition of many available advanced technology, safety and security features,” said Jim Morrison, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA North America. “With more than 70 advanced safety and security features paired with benchmark 4×4 systems, Jeep Renegade provides drivers with the confidence to handle any adventure, in any weather condition.”

A “superior” rating, the highest possible from the IIHS, was earned by the advanced driver assist technology of Forward Collision Warning-Plus system, an available feature in the 2020 Jeep Renegade. With it, drivers can avoid or minimize the impact of a collision. More available driver assist tech include Adaptive Cruise Control and Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection, designed to help make your drive more comfortable and safer and to give you a clear view of dangers lurking on your side and behind you, respectively.
