Comparing the Jeep Renegade to the Chevrolet Trax, Ford EcoSport, and Subaru Forester at Shelbyville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

When you are in the market for an SUV, you are entering a highly competitive field. SUVs are becoming increasingly popular, and you should have no problem discerning why, considering the utility, convenience, power, safety, and spacing over sedans, while being easier to handle, less pricey, and more efficient than bulky trucks. With SUVs like the Jeep Renegade, Chevrolet Trax, Ford EcoSport, and Subaru Forester there is so much to look forward to. However, we believe the Jeep Renegade is the better option here for Louisville and Taylorsville drivers.

The Jeep Renegade Off-Road

The Jeep Renegade has vastly improved off-road ability when compared to the competing models, and it's not even close. It's easy to handle, with a stiff body, steering engineering, and a nine-speed automatic. With available Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System, you can customize your Jeep Renegade to perform in a variety of body styles with multiple modes.


The Jeep Renegade also has two available 4x4 systems in its corner, including Jeep Active Drive and Jeep Active Drive Low. These systems are characterized by a rear axle disconnecting system that continuously switches between two-wheel and four-wheel drive. On the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk® trim, this capability is enhanced even further as it earned the Trail Rated® badge.

onghorn®, Laramie®, Rebel®, Big Horn®, and Tradesman® to offer multiple features and options for even the pickiest driver.

The Jeep Renegade vs. the Subaru Forester

The Subaru Forester has standard all-wheel drive, larger storage capacity, and more standard features. However, you pay heavily when it comes to the price tag, as the Subaru Forester is a much more expensive model. When it comes to better off-road and handling ability, you can't outlast the Jeep Renegade.

The Jeep Renegade vs. the Chevrolet Trax

The Jeep Renegade offers more premium passenger space than the Chevrolet Trax does, as the Chevrolet Trax can often feel too cramped. The Jeep Renegade's base 2.4-liter engine has significantly more power than the Chevrolet Trax's engine, which can sputter under the weight. The Jeep Renegade also has a more rugged feel to it, allowing the Jeep Renegade to handle rougher weather and off-road challenges that might face drivers traversing through Lyndon and Taylorsville.

The Jeep Renegade vs. the Ford EcoSport

Drivers from Jeffersontown and Shelbyville will enjoy the better interior spacing on the Jeep Renegade then they will on the Ford EcoSport. The off-road ability goes without saying, but the premium interior also out lavishes the cabin of the Ford EcoSport.

The Jeep Renegade is undoubtedly most known for its off-road abilities and design that sets itself apart. However, compared to the Ford EcoSport and the Chevrolet Trax, it blows the competition away in terms of spacing and the cabin. When stacked up against the better equipped Subaru Forester, the massive price differential doesn't equate to what you are missing out on. Our dealership believes strongly when compared to each other; the Jeep Renegade will appeal more to Louisville drivers. Come browse our new Jeep inventory to see for yourself.
