The 2022 Jeep Renegade is all set to hit the roads by the last quarter of the current year i.e, 2021. The launch dates and any upcoming updates are not available to us at the moment, however, experts have predicted the vehicle will remain unchanged for the next year while replacing some features. Though we are expecting a bump in the pricing, and the base variant is expected to be priced somewhere around $23,300 that can go all the way to $30,200.

The most affordable SUV in the Jeep territory is sure to get minor tweaks in the interior and introduce more safety features for the coming year. We can also see an electric variant as it has become a staple for almost every car manufacturer to throw an EV alongside the regular model. The 2022 Jeep Renegade will go against a very popular list of competitors like the Honda HR-V, the Ford Escape, and the Mazda CX-3.

2022 Jeep Renegade Features

The 2022 Jeep Renegade trims on offer are the same 8 trims as its previous 2021 year. The base will start with the Sport trim and the Trailhawk trim sits on the top of the list and is estimated to be priced around $30,000 with all the offroading goodies. The other 6 trims that stack up in between are Jeepster, Latitude, Upland, Islander, and Limited.

Among all the trims available with the 2022 Renegade, the Latitude trim is more exciting and more thrilling as it has a mixture of offroading capabilities and has many luxury elements inside the car such as the dual-zone automatic climate control, high-end interior, Kenwood audio system, and a lot more.

*Prices are estimated

The 2022 Jeep Renegade trims are not arranged in the same way others do, it is divided with different appeals. For eg.; The most expensive trim in the lineup is the Islander trim but is not the best in features and is only expensive for the reason that it offers a unique and refined quality interior and a unique exterior design.

we recommend:

The 2022 Jeep Renegade offers a unique trim lineup that also confuses buyers for good reasons. The 2022 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk trim is the most feature-loaded, however, if you need better performance and an excellent off-roading capability then you can go with the Limited trim.

Price

The 2022 Jeep Renegade Price is expected to rise by $400 to $600. The new 2022 Jeep Renegade will cost $23,300 for the base trim as compared to $22,850 for the 2021 model. While the top of the line Trailhawk trim is estimated to cost $29,400 with a 4WD setup.

Release Date

The 2022 Jeep Renegade will be launched sometime at the end of 2021 or maybe at the beginning of 2022. However, there is no credible information available about the launch date but judging the previous release pattern, Jeep could reveal the new Renegade in Q2 2021.

2022 Jeep Renegade Engine and Performance

The performance of the 2022 Jeep Renegade will remain the same as it has been in the previous model year; it will likely come with the same 2.4-liter naturally aspirated inline 4 engine. This engine is capable of putting out 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of max torque. An optional 177-horsepower 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder is also on offer. Both the engines are mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission with a front-wheel drivetrain or an optional all-wheel-drive system for the base trim. The higher trims come with AWD as standard.

The handling of the Renegade has always been praised by enthusiasts. The rides are quite sharp and precise with good steering controls and chassis stability. Out on the road, the car does not skip a beat and that is the same thing while going offroad. The suspension setup and decent ground clearance make the Renegade take the corners easily without much body roll.

Considering the segment, the engine power is up to the mark but in off-road situations, it lacks the punch to glide through. It is quite capable though. It reaches 0-60 miles per hour in 8.7 secs. As there is no change in the powertrain, the power will be similar to the present model year and the handling dynamics will be the same too. 

2022 Jeep Renegade Fuel Economy

7.0/10

The fuel economy will remain the same as the powertrain is retained for 2022 as well. It is average for an offroader and quite less if compared with the competition. The Renegade gives an average of 22 MPG in the city, 30 MPG on the highway, and 25 MPG combined. It further reduces with the AWD to 21/29/24MPG in city/highway/combined cycles. The tank capacity of the Renegade is 12.7 gallons which is the lowest. Mazda CX-3 shares the same tank capacity but puts out an impressive fuel economy.

The Jeep Renegade puts out the least mileage in the competition. The mileage of the Mazda CX-3 is best in class but the lower tank capacity betrayed the total range when compared to other rivals with significantly larger fuel tanks. Similarly, the Ford Escape puts out a better mileage compared to the HR-V and gives the best in class range. 

2022 Jeep Renegade Interior

8.0/10

The interior of the Jeep Renegade has a very minimalistic approach and for the 2022 model year, we think that Jeep will continue to provide a similar interior design. The cabin is adequately spaced and seats up to 5 people.The materials used inside the cabin are not high end especially the dashboard which is made of a combination of hard and soft plastic. The steering wheel, however, has a good feeling when held. We hope that Jeep includes better interior components which can give the Renegade a stand against its rivals.

The seats offered are decent with ample headroom and legroom for both rows. One can choose between leather or cloth seat materials. The upholstery is good with enough grip. Overall the seats are ergonomic. The floor gets all-weather mats and the seats are washable, making it quite the offroad biased necessity.

The storage capacities are decent with spaces inside the hand rest and few pockets around the car. The infotainment system on offer is a very intuitive offering with the Jeep’s Uconnect interface. To sum it up, the 2022 model is yet to launch and we can expect few tweaks in the interiors and not a complete overhaul.

In the competition, the Renegade is not far behind. The only thing lacking is the rear-seat legroom and the standard cargo capacity on offer. Apart from that, it is fairly a practical car. The other cars in the competition offer similar cabin space and adequate cargo capacity which is more than the Renegade. A few of the main interior components are:

  • 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
  • Bluetooth connectivity.
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control.
  • 9 speaker audio system.

2022 Jeep Renegade Exterior

8.0/10

The 2022 Jeep Renegade will not have any change in the external visuals. The vehicle got a facelift recently which made it look really attractive. It looks more like a traditional Jeep and definitely feels that it got inspiration from the Wrangler. The facelift introduced a newly designed 7 seven-slot intake grille, rear bumper, round headlamps, and square tail lamps which are all LED and hold a character in themselves.

The exterior has boxy cuts and shapes giving it more like a proper off-roader but also holding its funky nature. The design language of the Renegade is not liked by all and still holds controversies but the exterior itself speaks for the offroading nature it holds.

The ground clearance is impressive at 8 inches which is class-leading and helps in offroading. It has a width of 79.6 inches making it the widest car in the competition. A few of the exterior highlights are as follows:

  • Heated rearview mirrors.
  • 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
  • Tinted rear glass.
  • Fog lamps.
  • Black color roof.
  • LED headlights and taillights.

2022 Jeep Renegade Safety

7.0/10

The safety quotient of the Renegade has been very respectable in the competition. And with that, the 2022 model should be pretty good in that aspect. The 2021 Renegade gets very respectable crash test ratings from the NHTSA with 4 out of 5 stars. The IIHS has rated the Renegade similarly. 

Also, the build quality is top-notch making it tough and shield against walls in the crash tests. All these contribute to the goodwill of the Renegade which will attract a lot of people who are not particularly impressed by the design and interior. As of the 2021 Renegade, the safety features on offer are really impressive and comes with a driver assistance package that includes a ton of features. A few of the main safety features include:

  • Pre-collision Warning System.
  • 7 airbags in total.
  • Anti-lock Brakes with discs.
  • Engine Immobilizer.
  • Traction Control System.
  • Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assistance.
  • Post-collision Safety System.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
  • Electronic Brake Assist.
  • Stability Assist.

2022 Jeep Renegade Competition

9.0/10

2022 Jeep Renegade vs 2021 Honda HR-V

Apart from the off-road capabilities held by the Renegade, there is nothing much extraordinary about it. On the other hand, the HR-V holds a very famous position with its reliability.

2021 Honda HR-V

Apart from that, the HR-V bags a better fuel economy and an overall better ride quality. Talking about the price, the 2021 HR-V is a cheaper option and is easier to maintain. For 2022 all-new HR-V is on the cards, so wait before jumping to a conclusion.

2022 Jeep Renegade vs 2021 Ford Escape

The Ford Escape is more of a complete subcompact SUV with very much everything better than the Renegade. Starting with the performance, the engine is quite potent but also gives better fuel economy.

2021 Ford Escape

The interior space is better and the cabin feels refined and bigger than the Renegade. Also, the cargo capacity is better, leveling up the overall practicality. The looks of the Escape are on the mainstream side whereas the Renegade has better-rugged appeal.

2022 Jeep Renegade vs 2021 Mazda CX-3

The Mazda CX-3 is a very impressive offering and is known for its fuel economy which is best in class. Also in one area where the CX-3 shines is in the exterior. The car looks sharp and futuristic which is always appreciated. Also, it is a lot cheaper than the Renegade but does not have off-roading capabilities.

2021 Mazda CX-3

 

2022 Jeep Renegade Final Verdict

The 2022 Jeep Renegade shall receive few updates but the car is unfortunately not an everyday car and quite biased towards its capabilities. If you are someone who lives in the countryside and perhaps loves offroading, then it is for you. The Renegade from the inside is not competitive and offers lower-quality materials yet it is priced too high. It fails to give the premium feel you would want in a car that is priced similarly. If you are a family man living in the cities and want a more practical SUV then there are other cars.
