American Cars Under $25,000

Jeep Renegade
Price: Starting at $17,595
The newest member of the Jeep family, Renegade is the brand’s first entry in the small SUV segment. Unlike some competitors, which are often referred to as “cute utes,” the Renegade is built to handle tough off-road terrain as well as snowy or slick roads. The front-drive-based Renegade is available with two 4WD systems and features the Jeep Selec-Terrain system, providing up to five modes (Auto, Snow, Sand and Mud modes, plus Rock mode exclusive to the Trailhawk) that set up the Renegade for best performance based on conditions. Two engines are available: a 1.4-liter 160-horsepower turbocharged four cylinder teamed with a 6-speed manual transmission, or a 2.4-liter 180-horsepower unit teamed with a 9-speed automatic transmission. For 2016 Renegade offers Beats Audiowith an optional Beats premium audio system includes nine speakers with a 6.5-inch subwoofer and 506-watt amplifier for studio-quality sound. No question that the Renegade is deserving of the Jeep brand.
