The biggest change for the new Renegade is the introduction of two hybrid versions: the 4xe plug-in hybrid and the e-hybrid. Both use a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The 4xe plug-in hybrid has a 13.2 kWh battery that can provide up to 31 miles of electric-only range and can be recharged in less than two hours with a 7.4 kWh charger. The e-hybrid has a smaller 0.4 kWh battery that acts as a mild hybrid system, boosting torque and improving fuel efficiency. Both hybrids have a total output of 240 horsepower and a maximum torque of 199 lb-ft.

The dashboard has been redesigned with a new leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel, a new fully digital 10.25-inch cluster that can be customized to display different information, and a new 10.1-inch touchscreen with Uconnect 5 infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and wireless charging. The new Renegade also offers more comfort and convenience features, such as automatic climate control, a panoramic sunroof, and a Beats audio system.
The new Jeep Renegade also offers more personalization options, with four trim levels: Longitude, Limited, Trailhawk, and Summit.
