The 2018 Jeep Renegade does not have many changes from its predecessor, but the ones that have been made give you a more fun and convenient SUV ownership experience.
And with the ability to take adventures off-road via the Jeep Active Drive or Jeep Active Drive Low 4×4 system, you’ll enjoy these updates anywhere.
1. Uconnect Infotainment Systems
The first change for the 2018 Jeep Renegade is that there are 3 4th-generation Uconnect infotainment systems available, depending on the trim you pick. Firstly, the Sport now equips a Uconnect radio with a 5″ touchscreen, 6 speakers and Bluetooth hands-free calling & streaming audio.
Coming standard in the rest (and optional in the Sport) is a Uconnect 4 system with a 7″ touchscreen display, a remote USB port, SiriusXM satellite radio and Apple CarPlay & Android Auto compatibility for integrating your smartphone. An optional Uconnect radio with an 8.4″ touchscreen and a navigation system is also available for the Latitude, Trailhawk & Limited trims.
2. ParkView Rear Backup Camera
Every 2018 Jeep Renegade at our dealership serving Westchester and Fairfield County CT now comes equipped with a ParkView rear backup camera. This technology can not only help you parallel park in NYC or on a Main Street in your area, but it can also help prevent you from hitting an object or pedestrian when backing out of your driveway or parking space.
No matter which Uconnect infotainment system you choose above, you’ll be able to see what your rear camera does in the display when the Renegade is geared into reverse. Dynamic gridlines and audible or on-screen warnings will help you judge where an object is behind you.
3. Sunroof Options For All
Whether you pick the Jeep Renegade Sport, Latitude, Trailhawk or Limited, you can now get a sunroof as an option. Two different sunroofs are available and both will give you an extra breeze on warm or even cool days.
The My Sky open-air sunroof is offered for every trim and this is comprised of a power vent & slide front panel and dual manual removable panels with a storage bag to keep them in when you decide to take advantage. Every trim except for the Sport can be equipped with a dual-pane power glass sunroof.
4. Functional Interior Redesign
The last update may be the best one for those who like to bring everything along with them for the ride, whether it’s a daily commute or a long road trip. That’s because interior upgrades like a revised Selec-Terrain shifter dial layout, relocated USB port and 2 new storage areas in the front row increase the storage capacity inside the Renegade.
The new seat fabrics, color options and bezel treatments will make you feel even more at home inside of this crossover SUV model that’s entering its 4th year on the road.
