Take a Test Drive in a 2016 Jeep Renegade at Palmen Motors
Beginning with the differences in the exterior of the 2016 Jeep Renegade and 2016 Ford Escape, it's easy to see which vehicle has the sportier appearance. The boxy, rugged look of the Renegade offers a unique frame and shape, along with the classic Jeep flavor in the headlights and front grille. The more standard-looking Ford Escape has sleek headlights and a more teardrop shape, but doesn't offer the same unique characteristics that you see on the Renegade. Under the hood, you'll find a smaller 1.4-liter base engine on the Renegade, but the Trailhawk trim has a 2.4-liter I-4 engine and remarkable capability allowing you to take the Renegade off-roading. The Escape offers a 2.5-liter base engine, but none of the available trim levels are trail rated for off-roading.
When it comes to the interior, the Jeep Renegade's more distinct styling stands out from the competition. Both vehicles feature a first-row LCD screen and great-sounding audio system, even at the base trim. Comfortable cloth seating for up to five passengers inside both crossover SUVs makes for an enjoyable ride, but the slightly increased passenger space inside the Renegade adds additional comfort for passengers in the front or rear seats. Optional features in both vehicles include a voice-activated navigation system, a Park Assist feature, and other active and passive safety features. Whether you love the modern appearance or the great price, the 2016 Jeep Renegade is a fantastic value in crossover SUV.
