The 2023 Jeep Renegade is an SUV that has a cute and chunky appearance, great interior, and excellent off-road capability. It is also worth mentioning that the Jeep Renegade is the most affordable model from this manufacturer. The new redesigned version from the information that we got will arrive this year with modest upgrades over its predecessor.
Also, the previously standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder will be dumped, leaving the torquier turbo-four as the lone engine. So, the standard is now a turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder producing 177 horsepower. The engine uses a nine-speed automatic transmission and either front or all-wheel drive.
Is Jeep Redesigning the Renegade?
The 2023 Jeep Renegade is a very boxy SUV that has a military-inspired aesthetic. This SUV stands out from the rest of models thanks to its distinctive front end, which is recognized by a seven-slat grille and attractive eye-catchy round LED headlights.
In general, you can modify and change its look by choosing some of the upper trims. For example, the Limited variant offers some additional chrome and a more premium look, while the Trailhawk model has a more aggressive approach. This version comes with bigger wheels, all-terrain tires, and skid plates. Other noticeable visual upgrades include redesigned taillights with better graphic, and some cool black accents on upper trims.
More Quality Materials, Better Comfort
The Renegade’s interior has always been a highlight of this model. For 2023, the manufacturer will make some upgrades adding more quality materials, which should result in better comfort for all passengers. The Renegade’s seats are very supportive, and they have no problem folding flat to create more room.
In terms of technology, this model comes with an infotainment system of 8.4-inch touchscreen, supporting the updated Uconnect interface. Also, as standard, you’ll get Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, built-in navigation, and SiriusXM satellite radio.
2023 Jeep Renegade Under the Hood
As we said just at the beginning, the forthcoming 2023 Jeep Renegade will be available with only one engine. Under the hood is a turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder that’s capable of producing 177 horsepower. The engine comes with a nine-speed automatic transmission, and it uses the front wheel as standard.
All-wheel drive can only be had optionally. As before, the model with all-wheel-drive can tow up to 2000 pounds, while Jeep doesn’t recommend towing with front-drive versions at all. If you’re looking for more performance, the turbocharged Kia Soul and Mazda CX-30 both offer better performance thanks to stronger engines.
2023 Jeep Renegade Price, Release Date
The new 2023 Jeep Renegade is an SUV available in six different trim levels. So, the price will vary depending on the chosen trim. For a start, the base version Sport cost $25,790, while optional Latitude is $29,890, and Altitude $30,885. The upper trims are Red Edition $31,185, Trailhawk $32,000, and the most expensive Limited starting at $32,200.
The top-tier Limited is the most attractive model because it receives a revised grille, 18-inch wheels, and other things. According to Jeep, the sales of all the mentioned models will begin towards the end of the year. The Renegade SUV when releases will rival models such as Nissan Kicks, Kia Seltos, Subaru Crosstrek, Honda HR-V, and Chevy Trailblazer.
