The Renegade’s powerful 4x4 system includes the Jeep Active Drive Low 4x4 system (on the Trailhawk model) and Jeep Active Drive on the other trim levels.

Interior and Exterior Design:
A quick peek at the Renegade interior will reveal that this practical ride offers Best-in-Class rear shoulder room and Best-In-Class 1st Row headroom, which means the headroom available on the Jeep Renegade is the best, when compared to similar vehicles.
There are also a number of sunroof and LED lighting options available for the Jeep Renegade. The Sun and Sound Group (which promises to bring you “more sunshine on the road- who can say no to that?) offers a dual-pane panoramic sunroof that comes with a power retractable front pane. This awesome sunroof can be extended all the way back to the rear seats of the vehicle, ensuring that your backseat passengers are enjoying the views. This also gives them less time for backseat driving- which is a major plus for you in the driver’s seat!
Meanwhile, the standard LED lighting offered on the Trailhawk Elite promises to light your way in style with premium bifunctional LED projector headlamps, LED daytime running lamps, LED cornering fog lamps and LED taillamps.
