2018 Jeep Renegade Gains An Updated Interior And New Standard Equipment

The Jeep Renegade is entering the 2018 model year with a host of improvements.

Since the model was introduced a few years ago, the exterior styling stays the same but the crossover has been equipped with a redesigned interior.

Jeep didn’t provide pictures but said the cabin has new seat fabrics, revised colors, and updated bezel treatments. Other changes include a “revamped Selec-Terrain shifter dial layout,” a relocated USB port, and the addition of two new storage compartments.

Speaking of the interior, the entry-level Renegade Sport now comes standard with a 5-inch Uconnect 5.0 audio system that has Bluetooth connectivity, six-speakers, and voice control technology. The model can also be equipped with an optional Uconnect 4 system which has a 7-inch display as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Additional changes are limited but all Renegade models now come standard with a ParkView rearview camera. The Renegade Sport also gains a newly optional My Sky roof panel system.

Engine options carryover and include a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder that develops 160 hp (119 kW) and 184 lb-ft (250 Nm) of torque. There’s also a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 180 hp (134 kW) and 175 lb-ft (237 Nm) of torque.

        Yeah maybe if they gave more info as to what colors or what kind of material, etc. were used. Until then, no.

          Well…I see pigskin covered seats and snakeskin surfacing on the dashboard.
          It looks terrible! What were they thinking?
