Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler than in the Jeep Renegade, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Renegade, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Jeep Wrangler requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Renegade, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Renegade will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Wrangler. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Jeep Renegade and the Jeep Wrangler have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Jeep Renegade is about the same width as the Jeep Wrangler. When looking at overall length, the Jeep Renegade takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Wrangler.

Drivetrain
The Jeep Renegade has much lower torque than the Jeep Wrangler, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Jeep Renegade has a larger turning radius than the Jeep Wrangler, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Jeep Renegade will do just as well as the Jeep Wrangler, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Renegade has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler.

Utility
The Jeep Renegade offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Wrangler, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Jeep Renegade, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Jeep Wrangler.

Warranty
The Jeep Renegade comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Wrangler.
