2019 Jeep Renegade vs 2019 Ford EcoSport

Serving Gillette, WY

When you see all that the Renegade has to offer, it’s easy to see the SUV’s appeal. Although it’s a small car, the Renegade has a big personality. The Renegade has many elements of Jeep’s classic look, including a signature front grille and rounded headlights. The Jeep Renegade gets a more functional interior in the latest model year, and it has a refreshed exterior appearance as well. The Renegade is noted for its unique appearance, its exceptional off-road capability, its user-friendly technology, and its agile handling on-road and off. This Jeep also comes with a nine-speed transmission and a choice of two engines. The Ford EcoSport, in comparison, does not have the same power capacity as the Jeep. It also has fewer advanced safety features than the Jeep. While the Renegade has smooth, agile handling, the Ford EcoSport has a comparatively choppier ride.

Performance & Handling

The Renegade comes with two engine options. The base engine provides sufficient power for daily driving and off-roading, but the higher-level engine adds even more. The base engine is a 1.3L turbo engine that creates up to 177 HP and 210 LB-FT of torque. This engine also has start-stop technology that turns off the engine to conserve fuel and power when the vehicle is not in motion. The Renegade also has a powerful 2.4L engine with up to 180 HP and 175 LB-FT of torque that is available on most models. However, the engine is standard on certain trims, including the Latitude and Sport. This engine is connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission. If you choose to get a 4×4 version, the engine also has a disconnecting rear axle that improves the Renegade’s efficiency and performance. The 2019 Ford EcoSport also has two engines. However, it’s base engine only produces a maximum of 123 HP, and the top engine has a maximum power output of 166 HP.

Exterior Appearance

Even before you learn that the 2019 Jeep Renegade is trail-rated tough, you can see that it is an athletic-looking car that appears ready for whatever conditions you bring its way. The Renegade has a classic seven-slot grille that you’ll find on Jeep’s other SUVs, too. However, the grille on the Renegade gets new surrounds this year that give it an updated appearance. The headlamps have also been updated, and the Jeep comes with a new set of available wheels. Bold LED lighting, fog lights, and side mirrors with integrated LED turn signals are other hallmarks of the Jeep’s exterior. The Renegade offers wheels that range in size from 16 inches to 19 inches. The Ford EcoSport, meanwhile, also contains some distinctive styling elements, but its exterior isn’t as eye-catching as what you’ll find with the Jeep.

Interior Amenities

Inside, the 2019 Jeep Renegade has an interior brimming with technology, safety features, and luxury amenities. The Renegade’s cabin can be equipped with Jeep’s own Uconnect touchscreen, which is an 8.4-inch user-friendly display screen with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, navigation, and more.
