2017 Renegade vs 2017 Wrangler Fuel Economy 

When it comes to standard engine performance, the Wrangler certainly has more power to offer. The standard V-6 under the hood of the Wrangler puts down an impressive 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. However, when it comes to fuel economy, the Renegade takes a stride ahead. For those who want the Jeep look but don't need the rugged capability that comes with the Wrangler, the Renegade offers a smaller-yet-responsive engine with a much more efficient highway driving experience.   

Interior features can take your daily drive from basic to luxurious, and there's a lot to love inside both the 2017 Renegade and 2017 Wrangler. However, the Renegade does come with a more naturally comfort-oriented interior. Standard features for both models include: steering wheel mounted audio controls, cloth-covered seating for up to five passengers, two 12V DC power outlets, and a sunroof.
