Test Drive the Jeep Patriot or Renegade in Racine WI
Looking at the exteriors of these two SUVs, it’s easy to see that the Jeep Patriot has the more traditional Jeep appearance. The round headlights and box-shaped body are iconic features that the Patriot is carrying into 2016. The Renegade features new, more rounded, details on the exterior, showing the changes made by the Italian design team that worked on creating the new vehicle. The base engine for the Patriot offers the same amount of horsepower as the Renegade, despite being smaller. However, the Renegade comes with additional torque, making it the more responsive of the two when it comes to acceleration. Both vehicles achieve up to 31 miles per gallon on the highway, saving you time and money at the gas station.
Looking to the interior of the Renegade, the slightly smaller space confinements could be a deal breaker to drivers who like to spread out. However, the all-new design is quirky and modern, unlike that of the more traditional Patriot. Both crossovers feature seating for up to five adult passengers and optional leather seats at higher trim levels. The 2016 Renegade comes with a standard first-row LCD screen, but only the Patriot has standard Bluetooth compatibility. Both vehicles have a standard four-speaker audio system and auxiliary input.
