When the first Jeep Renegade was released a lot of skeptics did not like the fact that a crossover vehicle is going to be built on the premise of a off-road capable car. But those critiques were soon put to rest once the car started making a name for itself. The latest 2021 Jeep Renegade is only going to expand on this premise and continue the fine line of these vehicles. Read the full review so you see what are the new features for the new model.


The new 2021 Jeep Renegade is going to be updated with a lot of new features that are going to be used as standard parts of equipment now. Many of the available parts have been only available as optional or on higher trim level cars but now all of them is going to be more or less available as a standard option, even for the base version. Some standard equipment parts are an auxiliary audio jack,  four-speaker sound system, a 60/40-split folding rear seat setup, a telescopic-and-tilt steering wheel, a USB port, a height-adjustable driver seat and cloth upholstery.

Higher trims, like the Latitude, come equipped with some new and other pieces of equipment. The standard on this truck are the leather-wrapped steering wheel, ambient LED lighting, power adjustable heated exterior mirrors, a fold-flat passenger seat,  air-conditioning, a six-speaker audio system, and some special parts of equipment like the voice commands and a 5” touchscreen.

The Limited trim allows you to add an eight-way power-adjustable driver seat, a 115-V household style power outlet, a 40/20/40-split folding rear seat, automatic wipers, an auto-dimming rearview mirror,  leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped shift knob, an upgraded driver information display, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.

The Trailhawk trim is the most off-road capable vehicle of the bunch and like that has some special features on the inside of it. You get red interior stitching, a leather-wrapped shift knob, an upgraded driver information display, premium cloth upholstery 115-V household-style power outlet, and some very nicely displayed off-road controls.


The exterior of the 2021 Jeep Renegade is going to noticeably change its appearance and will add some new characteristics to the model which we did not see before. But all in all it is still going to be a recognizable Renegade which we are going to easily notice a recognize on the street. The base model is going to have the least amount of changes but it is going to make a higher distinction between the trim models then. The base version is going to revamp the details of the car which are going to be seen upon closer inspection. The dimensions are going to change a bit as well and we can expect the car to reach 4.2 m in total length and 2.5 m in its wheelbase.

The front side of the car is going to add the same upright grille that was used before but with seven holes in it. The headlights are going to be redesigned and we are getting some new ones as now they are going to have a round shape to them. Both the front and back bumpers are going to be increased and they are going to adopt some bigger ones with a new kind of a design and this is going to make the car seem more aggressive and will give an overall muscular appearance of the car. The Renegade is being constructed on the newest  frivolous platform which is going to reduce overall weight.


The new 2021 Jeep Renegade is going to be available in a few different trims except the base, so you can choose between the Sport version, Limited, Latitude and the off-road capable Trailhawk which is the one with the most amount of equipment.
