What are some of the safety features?
No matter where you travel, the Jeep Renegade is there for you with over 70 standard and available safety features. Adaptive Cruise Control automatically adjusts your driving speed to help you maintain a pre-selected distance between you and the car ahead. Also available is a Blind-Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection, which uses radar-based sensors to detect other vehicles in your blind spot area so you can make safer lane changes. And a Lane Departure Warning System measures your position within lane boundaries. If the Renegade detects that you are drifting, you will be alerted and course-corrected so your vehicle can get back into its lane.
