2020 Jeep Renegade Power & Handling

One of the ways that Jeep continues to have their vehicles stand out from the competition is the powertrain lineup. The 2020 Renegade pushes that tradition forward with two impressive engine options to choose from. The base engine here is a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder, which can get up to 175 pound-feet of torque and 180 horsepower. The other available engine here is a turbocharged 1.3-liter 4-cylinder, which can produce 210 pound-feet of torque and 177 horsepower. Not only do you get to choose from two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, but you are also getting a standard nine-speed automatic transmission. There’s a lot to be excited about with this vehicle.

2020 Chevy Trax Power & Handling

Unlike the Renegade, which offers two different engines, you will only get one standard engine with the 2020 Chevy Trax. This standard engine is a fairly weak turbocharged 1.4-liter 4-cylinder, which can only produce around 148 pound-feet of torque and up to 138 horsepower. You do get to choose from front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive can’t replace the off-roading needs that require four-wheel drive. Overall, the lack of decent power and four-wheel drive is a detriment that the Trax can’t overcome.

2020 Jeep Renegade Features & Design

Even after being impressed with the kind of power available, that isn’t where the Renegade stops. You’ll be able to enjoy a long list of trims that give you the opportunity to really have your personality shine through your Renegade. Standard features here include a five-inch touchscreen, push-button start, and 16-inch steel wheels. Throughout the rest of the lineup you’ll find features like Apple CarPlay, Android auto, black front tow hooks, leather upholstery, heated front seats, skid plates, LED lighting, a heated steering wheel, a navigation system, and even an 8.4-inch touchscreen.

2020 Chevy Trax Features & Design

In an attempt to get back into the competition, the Trax has its own trim lineup to give you an opportunity to put your personality into it. Some of the standard features include Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, 60/40-split and fold rear seats, 16-inch steel wheels, and 4G LTE Wi-Fi. A few available features include heated front seats, cruise control, remote start, a Bose 7-speaker audio upgrade, simulated leather upholstery, forward-collision mitigation, LED daytime running lights, and a storage drawer beneath the front passenger seat.
