2017 Jeep Renegade Review
Posted on July 30, 2020
Life isn't always smooth, and neither are many of the roads you drive down each day. At Caledon Chrysler, we understand that sometimes drivers are looking for an SUV that handles the challenges of driving both on and off-road. That's why we recommend the 2017 Jeep Renegade with Best in Class 4X4 capability to some many of our customers. This tough small-size SUV is available in five trim levels, ten exciting exterior colours, and FWD or 4WD has something for every type of driver in the Greater Toronto Area.
4X4 Performance in Action
Because one-size does not fit all, the 2017 Jeep Renegade comes with a choice of two engines. The first is a 1.4-liter I4 MultiAir Turbo 16-valve SOHC engine that produces 160 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 184 lb.-ft. or torque at 2500 rpm. On other trims, you can enjoy a 2.4-liter Tigershark I4 MultiAir Engine 16-valve SOHC engine that puts out 180 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 175 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,900 rpm. To stay in full control of the 2017 Jeep Renegade drivers can pick between a six-speed C635 manual transmission or a nine-speed 948TE automatic transmission. This SUV handles great due to the independent front and rear suspension, rack and pinion steering, and the available Selec -Terrain System. As with many Jeep vehicles available at Caledon Chrysler, the 2017 Jeep Renegade is great for outdoor adventures due to the Trail Rated 4x4, trailer sway damping capability, and 907 kg in towing capacity if you have the Class III receiver hitch with a 4-pin wiring harness. You also get up to 7.7 L/100 km highway and 9.9 L/100 km city in fuel efficiency.*

Not only is the 2017 Jeep Renegade strong it is also extremely safe. You and your passengers are surrounded by the best of airbags standard including advanced multistage front airbags, driver inflatable knee-bolster, supplemental front seat-mounted side, and supplemental side-curtain front and rear airbags.
