There are few brands in the automotive industry as iconically strong as Jeep. When the automaker released the Renegade, an SUV that mirrors the strengths and construction of Jeep vehicles past, the brand reignited its lineup and demonstrated a desire to grow its selection of vehicles capable of handling any driving condition. The 2017 Renegade’s engine options earned the SUV recognition as Canada’s Most Capable Small SUV Ever. Our team at Regency Chrysler is putting the vehicle’s performance to the test today.
2017 Jeep Renegade engine options
1.4L MultiAir I-4 Turbo
When equipped with the 1.4-litre MultiAir I-4 Turbo engine, the Renegade generates 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. While there is no shortage of power with this engine option, its MultiAir technology works to reduce carbon dioxide emissions to earn up to a 7.7L/100 km (37 mpg) highway fuel economy rating.
2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir I-4
Pairing the Renegade with the 2.4-litre Tigershark ® MultiAir I-4 engine results in a 180-horsepower performance and 175 lb-ft of torque. Showing strength under the hood, this engine option still ensures each drop of its fuel is used intelligently by earning an estimated 8.2L/100 km (34 mpg) highway fuel economy rating.
2017 Jeep Renegade towing capacity
When drivers equip four-wheel-drive Renegade models with the available 2.4-litre Tigershark® MultiAir I-4 engine, nine-speed automatic transmission and Class-Exclusive Trailer Tow Package, they can get a 907-kg (2,000-lb) towing capacity out of the SUV. Whether hauling camping gear, off-road toys or a trailer full of apartment furniture, the Renegade can be used to make traveling with sizeable loads effortless and convenient.
