Looking at the exterior of the 2015 Jeep Renegade, it's easy to see the Fiat influence. Developed by the same designers as the 2016 Fiat 500X, this exciting little crossover has a boxy appearance with rounded features and a charming feel. The 2016 Jeep Cherokee stands out in the Jeep lineup as a vehicle that recently got a drastic redesign. The thin and pulled back headlights are combined with a more aerodynamic body shape to make for a sleek crossover with capability. Under the hood, the less expensive Renegade comes with a smaller base engine at only 1.4-liters compared to the base Cherokee engine that is a 2.4-liter. However, the Renegade's smaller engine still manages to put down an impressive 160 horsepower and gets an estimated 24 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. The Cherokee offers 184 horsepower and also gets up to 31 mpg on the highway.
