The 2018 Jeep® Renegade, from its name and reputation to its looks and performance, is a small SUV that exudes rugged capability. But fording streams and conquering dusty dirt roads isn’t the only thing the Jeep® Renegade can do. It also comes with a generous number of advanced technologies.
Equipped with the latest-generation Uconnect® 4C NAV infotainment system, the 2018 Jeep® Renegade puts everything you could need on a long trip at your fingertips. Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, Siri® and many more features are all available via the 8.4-inch touchscreen mounted in the center of the dashboard. If you’d rather keep your hands on the steering wheel and your eyes on the road, you can use the steering wheel-mounted controls or voice-activated commands to pick your radio station, respond to text messages or find out where to go.
In most cars, the instrument cluster above the wheel is just that: an instrument cluster displaying static information. In the 2018 Jeep® Renegade, it’s a lot more. With the controls on the steering wheel, you can scroll through a variety of relevant information displays on the 7-inch, full-color Driver Information Digital Cluster Display, including a digital speedometer, your navigation directions, the ParkSense® Rear Park Assist display and various other vehicle data, including what Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System you currently have active. Thanks to this, everything you need to know while on the go is directly in your line of sight, a great advantage when trying to focus on the obstacles ahead.
Comfort and entertainment
The 2018 Jeep® Renegade has a number of features designed to improve comfort and entertainment. Dual-zone automatic climate control makes it easy for the driver and front passenger to be at ease even with widely different temperature preferences, and the heated steering wheel and front seats take the cold edge away from wintertime adventures. If you like music, the Jeep® Renegade comes with an excellent 506-watt, nine-speaker BeatsAudio™ Premium Sound System, including a 6.5-inch subwoofer installed in the rear.
The 2018 Jeep® Renegade’s technology does a little bit of everything. It enhances comfort, convenience and even its performance capabilities. If you like your SUVs smart as well as adventurous, the Renegade is a solid choice.
