The 2020 Jeep line-up has won its fair share of awards and getting recognition, including the 2020 Jeep Renegade. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is pleased to learn the 2020 Jeep Renegade is now officially rated as a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety). The new award recognition comes to Renegade vehicles made after September 2019, simply due to the structural changes that were made to improve the driver-side small overlap frontal crash test. IIHS crash testing was made even harder to gain a better rating. Jeep has raised the stakes up to improve this SUV for owners. 

Improvements Recognized 

The changes have raised the scores to good in all five of the crashworthiness tests by the IIHS. The Renegade offers an optional front crash prevention system. That system is rated superior, due to the Renegade vehicle’s ability to avoiding collisions in both 12 and 25 mpg crash testing. The 2020 Renegade also earned a second-level acceptable score in the passenger-side small overlap frontal crash test. Owners can also opt to go with the available LED headlights with high-beam assist are rated acceptable. The small SUV segment carries only a very few number of vehicles that have earned a Top Safety Pick. 

More Reasons To Step Into the Renegade

More than improved safety, the 2020 Jeep Renegade improves its MPG from the 2019 model year to the 2020 model year. Drivers will gain 24 city and 32 city mpg.  The new 2020 Jeep Renegade starts at $22,275 MSRP (plus destination fee). The Renegade is fully capable of exploring all over, just like a Jeep Wrangler can. Drivers can expect to travel easier with the terrain selection dial that allows owners to use the Selec-Terrain Traction Management system. For off-road travel, drivers can choose between different modes including sand, snow, mud, or rocky terrain. After all, the Renegade is Trail Rated and wears the badge on the vehicle for a reason.

Drive Where You’d Like Easily

Owners can expect solid traction, water fording abilities, maneuverability, and articulation to help keep the vehicle stable and able to navigate safely, plus the Renegade has enough ground clearance for off-roading. The 2929 Renegade can handle it all, especially with the available 2.4-Liter engine that is paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain yields a solid 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. Thinking about getting into a new Jeep vehicle?
