October 20th, 2017 by


Jeep released almost all of the details on their 2018 compact SUV lineup and things are looking pretty good. The Jeep Renegade, Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Compass all look pretty promising.

2018 Jeep Renegade

The 2018 Renegade is one of the Jeep brand’s most popular compact SUV options. For the 2018 model year, the Renegade is still available with the same two fuel efficient engine options that were available in the 2017 model year, the 1.4L MultiAir engine and the 2.4L Tigershark engine. All Renegade models received upgraded infotainment and entertainment options. The 2018 Renegade Latitude, Renegade Limited and Renegade Trailhawk come standard with the upgraded UConnect 4 system (includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) and a 7-inch touchscreen, and the Renegade Sport now comes standard with a 5-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth and Uconnect 5.0. All models now have increased storage capacity, a ParkView backup camera, and a new redesigned interior.

2018 Jeep Compass

Since the Jeep Compass was completely redesigned for the 2017 model year, the 2018 model year Jeep Compass largely remains the same. The 2018 Compass is available in four trims, and they include the Compass Sport, Compass Latitude, Compass Limited and Compass Trailhawk, and this year the Compass Limited is available with a 4×2 drivetrain as well as the 4×4 drivetrain which was standard in 2017. Highlights for the 2018 Compass include two engine options, three Uconnect systems and more than 70 available advanced safety features.

2018 Jeep Cherokee

The Cherokee was introduced to the Jeep lineup in 1974, and more than 36 years later, the Cherokee is still a very significant model on the Jeep lineup. For the 2018 model year, Jeep added the Cherokee Latitude Plus to the lineup and they upgraded the standard features on various Cherokee trims.

The trim that received the most upgrades is the base trim, the Cherokee Latitude. For the 2018 model year, the Cherokee Latitude comes standard with 17-inch aluminum wheels, HID headlights, roof rails, daylight running models, fog lamps and a rear backup camera. Additionally, the Latitude is also available with a new Uconnect skill that allows users to sync up Amazon Alexa with their vehicle’s Uconnect system.

Other new upgrades include the addition of cross-path detection, rear backup warning, and blind-spot monitoring, as standard features on the Cherokee Trailhawk and Cherokee Limited.
