What’s going on youtube so nowadays brands want as many suvs in their lineup as possible and jeep is probably the best automaker at having a crossover for everyone and today we’re standing next to their smallest most affordable and possibly most stylish offering the 2021 jeep renegade which has a slew of equipment upgrades for 2021 so is this the subcompact

Crossover to buy let’s go ahead and find out so let’s start off today by talking about what this renegade here is as far as the trim level is concerned so you’ve got three trim levels as the main that’s the sport latitude and limited however we have a lot of different special editions this is the brand new jeepster special edition and that builds on the base

Sport trim level for a great combination of value and style so starting with that style what we have up here in the front is that really signature boxy jeep shape of course you’ve got the seven slat grille with the jeepster edition it is going to be finished in a gloss black around these rings as well and then coming over here to your headlights these are going

To be halogen headlights of course since this is one of our more affordable trim levels but you do have the cool little jeep easter egg right there in the middle and then down below you have your separated turn signal indicator but when you get over here to the side this is where you can see one of the big advantages of choosing the jeepster edition and that’s

The fact that it throws in these premium 19 inch contrast alloy wheels this really is a very nice looking wheel and like i said it gives it a very premium vibe even though this is a lower end trim level now of course you got your renegade branding right there with jeepster underneath of it we do have a black mirror up at the top it is going to be heated and

New for 2021 you have standard blind spot monitoring now of course what the renegade does so well is the squared off design here at the side it really makes it look rugged as well as just has a very classy look to it now if you’re curious it’s around seven inches shorter than the jeep compass for reference now as far as the rear design itself of course you’re

Going to have that signature boxy look that’s going to continue back here so breaking down the design elements we have these tail lights here with the black plastic moldings around the outside edge they’re also going to be fully incandescent unless you go for the led headlights up in the front and then if we drop down we have all this black moldings to give it

That rugged look and you’re not going to have exposed exhaust outlets until you get to the limited trim now for your safety systems they have updated this renegade for 2021 to include ford emergency braking with pedestrian detection as well as lane keeping assist standard across the board now if you go for the luxury group that will also throw in adaptive cruise

Control as well as your auto high beam headlamps but that’s going to sum up the exterior design of this renegade as you can see it has that cool jeep design but now let’s go ahead and check out the inside but before we do that be sure to hit that subscribe button down below and also push that notification bell so on the jeepster model that’s going to throw in the

Jeep passive entry system as well as remote start and then to get inside the vehicle itself just grab behind the handle and it will now checking out the cabin just like with the exterior we have a cool and kind of funky vibe to it that really just kind of makes this renegade stand out from the competition now let’s go ahead and talk about different interior color

Material options because there’s not a lot to talk about honestly so the sport model as well as the jeepster that this is that is based off of that trim level come with black cloth only as you can see the seat itself looks quite nice it does have a design right there in the middle as well as color contrast stitching on the sides if you’re going to want leather

Then you’re going to have to go for the limited trim level now turning over here to the door trim you’re going to find the same material reflected up here so it goes all through this area of course you’ve got little jeep easter eggs all throughout the cabin this is one of them and we also have one touch auto up and down windows for the driver and pass and then

Checking out the seat itself as you can tell this is going to be manual adjusting with height adjustment now taking a look around the cabin and checking out the cabinet materials we do have a soft touch plastic that runs across the entire upper dashboard as well as kind of this lower middle area you’ve got a nice handle bar right there to grab on of course as you

Move down this is an affordable vehicle after all so this is going to be hard touch plastic however everything in here does fit together very well and feels solid now start it up put your foot on the brake and press this button which does say ready for adventures around the side of it it’s kind of cool now taking a look at the gauges they do have a very clean

And simple design to them since this is based on the sport trim as i’ve already discussed this comes with the smaller multi-function display however new for 2021 the latitude also gets the larger 7-inch display that the limited already had now coming back to the steering wheel we have electric power assisted steering the steering wheel itself will be urethane

On this model it’s leather wrapped on the latitude and above and of course it is going to be manual adjusting you can also get heating as an option as standard on the limited trim let’s go ahead and check the interior storage because even though this is a sub compact crossover the boxy design does help things out so first of all we’ve got our adjustable armrest

Which is extended out here to make it easier to rest your arm on once we push that back we can lift this open and storage in here is pretty decent this is actually nice and deep it does have a lining down at the bottom but let’s go ahead and test the coupons out though because that’s of course the real test yeah looks like they’re gonna fit in there just fine

Now up in front of that we’ve got our two cup holders this is designed to look like the tail light so that’s a cool touch then up at the very front here we have got a large center bin which is a great place for sticking a phone and then you’ve got some connections above that now coming back here to the shifter of course this has just your traditional operation

So you pull back the drive bump to the left if you want to shift manually there are not paddle shifters on the steering wheel and then heading into reverse we’ve got the standard backup camera which does come with active trajectory uh of course as a subcompact crossover there’s not gonna be options for a 360 camera or anything like that but the resolution on

Board but this one does look pretty nice and then back behind the shifter you will find an electronic parking brake now just because this is the smallest jeep does not mean it is a lacking in capability so you do have your various drive mode controls as well as your four-wheel drive lock right here and then above that we have our climate controls uh jeep is

Nicely including a standard dual zone automatic climate control setup across every single model which like i said is a pretty nice touch at this price point very simple operation through here and just like typical with uconnect you can make other adjustments up here in the display we don’t have heated seats on this specific example but they would be standard

On the limited model and now let’s go ahead and check out the audio system so we’ve got the standard six speaker sound system which comes across the board uh there is an optional nine speaker kenwood sound system available on all the models so overall sound quality is actually quite nice for the bass sound system okay so now let’s take a look next at our

Uconnect display so this is an area that’s seen some changes for 2021 because you now have the standard seven-inch display on the base sport model and of course this model as well previously this was not included on those trim levels additionally the limited removal now comes standard with the large 8.4 inch display and it was previously the 7-inch display now

Won’t go into a bunch of detail about this uconnect system since it is pretty much the same as in other models but i will point out you do have standard android auto and standard apple carplay now jumping above that we’ve got a manual dimming mirror and then up at the very top we are missing a moon roof however the signature dual panel jeep panoramic sunroof

Is available on the renegade uh but if you don’t have it like we don’t have it um you’re gonna have just an enormous amount of headroom due to that boxy design all right so sitting in the renegades rear seat the first thing that you’re going to notice is probably how much headroom you have obviously this is a square on the outside so that translates to a lot of

Headroom and you have 41 inches to be exact now as far as your legroom figures that’s going to be 35 inches and behind your seating position i would say i have probably two to three inches of extra space and my feet can easily set up underneath of the seat now as far as the features that you’re going to get you’re not going to get really anything especially on

This model so you know this center area is just blank we also do not have a fold down center armrest but you probably would be able to get that on higher end trim walls so walking up to the tailgate it is of course manually opening so just lift it up and you’re going to find 18 cubic feet of space behind the second row seats if you fold it that expands all the

Way up to 50 cubic feet that is actually on the top end of the segment so that square boxy design does translate once again to a lot of space here in the cargo area now as far as how they finished it we do have a really really nice carpeting along the floor and if we lift it up we do have additional storage up under here there’s actually a lot of space and then

If you lift that up you would find your spare tire and then you can also fold the seats they’re going to be 60 40 sport now of course here in your passenger seat you’re going to have a manually adjusting one and if we open up the glove box this is actually very surprisingly large it’s kind of on the narrow side but it is very very very large um when it opens down

So as far as the coupons they can fit in there no problem and then up top we do have a sun visor that is massive it has a mirror no lighting though and you can also detach extend and then there’s another extension on the end of that all right and taking off here in this renegade so there’s two different engine options you can have on the renegade depending on

Which trim level you choose this being a more basic trim level we’re gonna have the standard 2.4 liter four-cylinder engine and that’s making 180 horsepower yeah now if you do go for the limited um you’re going to get the turbo engine so it’s a 1.3 liter turbo 4 cylinder that has 177 horsepower but quite a bit more torque than this engine right here but as far as

How the power feels it feels adequate for a vehicle of this you know size this is a very small vehicle and you don’t expect to have a lot of power on board um you know that being said it does get it moving reasonably fast alrighty but just kind of cruising down the road that’s what you know this renegade is made for is just a cruise along the highway in comfort

Um and i’m pretty impressed with what we have to offer here the ride quality is decent even though it does have those big rims um i’m hearing a little bit of wind noise but i will get a sound level reading um going around 55 miles an hour so we can compare keep in mind it’s extremely windy outside right now today we’re sitting at 60.1 decibels so that that’s

That’s pretty much on par with what i would expect out of a vehicle in this segment and while we’re rolling down the highway i will mention the fact that you just have amazing visibility in here the shape of this vehicle does just give you so much side window big windshield big rear window you know it definitely feels uh very nice to be able to see all around

A vehicle since cars are getting more and more like aerodynamic with smaller windows and stuff this is very refreshing so as far as the transmission this has a 9-speed automatic transmission shifting is very smooth and stuff while you’re underway i will point out there’s a little bit of a hesitation going from like drive and reverse waiting for that to engage

Take a couple seconds just enough to notice but other than that everything seems to be you know very smooth and you are going to have front wheel drive standard optional all-wheel drive unless you go for the limited or trailhawk which does have all-wheel drive standard right and like i pointed out earlier you still have four-wheel drive controls and stuff like

That because even though this kind of is small and cute looking it does have real off-road capability especially if you choose to have the trailhawk version that’s really quite off-road vehicle now for your fuel economy this one as equipped is going to come in at 21 city 29 highway 24 combined um there are a lot of different other engine options and all that

So it does definitely range depending on which trim level as well as what engine and drivetrain that you have you know what time it is it’s airborne slammed on time so drew will go ahead and start us off with the slam dunk today yeah so the slam dunk is definitely the boxy design of this vehicle um not only does that give it a really cool exterior design that

Really stands out from the competition but it also just makes this interior extremely versatile like we talked about it feels very spacious in here this is a subcompact vehicle and usually that just feels claustrophobic and you know just kind of surrounding you but this you have so much space so much headroom and you know it just feels very nice and open here

With lots of storage yeah now as far as our air ball is concerned um i’m gonna tie that into the price so i’ll just go ahead and read off these prices here so this sport is going to start at 22 850. the jeepster is 24 990 on that trim and then the latitudes 25 080 and the limited is 28 940. now this one when when we add in the options as well as the destination

Charge of 14.95 that’s pretty steep um it’s going to come in at 27 985 bucks and i just feel for that price point almost 28 grand you can get a little bit more out of something like a super crosstrek you get a little bit nicer of a cabin and a bit more premium experience with more features but all in all if you’re looking for a really stylish subcompact crossover

This is certainly a great choice and especially if you’re looking for off-road ability you have a very limited list of things that you can choose between i think this really has just a lot of ability a lot of character and a lot of versatility well guys that’s going to wrap up this in-depth review of the 2021 jeep renegade we really appreciate you watching and
