2020 Jeep Renegade vs 2020 Chevrolet Trax

The Jeep Renegade is known for its fun exterior styling while the Chevrolet Trax is known for its small stature, but do you know what else these small SUVs have to offer? You can find out by reading down below, as we dive into the capability, design, and features that make up these two vehicles.

2020 Jeep Renegade Power & Handling

The 2020 Jeep Renegade is just as comfortable traversing the trails and driving through streams as it is navigating city streets thanks to the impressive four-wheel-drive system and the Selec-Terrain Traction Management system that comes standard with the Trailhawk model. The Renegade Trailhawk and Limited are both powered by a 177 horsepower 1.3L four-cylinder direct-injection turbocharged engine that can make up to 32 mpg on the highway. The Sport and Latitude models are both powered by a 180 horsepower 2.4L Tigershark engine that makes 175 lb-ft of torque and works with a nine-speed automatic transmission.

2020 Chevrolet Trax Power & Handling

No matter the trim level of the 2020 Chevrolet Trax you choose to go with, you will be receiving an underwhelming turbocharged 1.4L four-cylinder engine that outputs 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque. The underwhelming power levels mean the Trax takes a lot longer to accelerate up to speed on the highway and longer to get going after a dead stop. The turbocharged engine comes mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel-drive, although you can upgrade to all-wheel-drive.

2020 Jeep Renegade Features & Design

The Renegade Sport comes with exceptional features for everyday life including a fold-flat front passenger seat so you can store longer items inside the Renegade, a removable cargo floor panel perfect for hiding valuables, a backup camera, Bluetooth, and heated mirrors. The Latitude upgrades to a 7-inch touchscreen, roof rails, cloth upholstery, and more. On the Limited you’ll find heated seats, a heated steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and leather upholstery. The Trailhawk is last in the lineup with off-road-ready features including tow hooks, hill descent control, and a raised suspension.

2020 Chevrolet Trax Features & Design

The base Trax LS is pretty bare-bones and comes standard with manual-folding side mirrors, 16-inch alloy wheels, a six-speaker sound system, automatic headlights, and two USB ports. If you want cruise control and window tint, you’re going to have to opt for the Tint and Cruise Package or a different trim level. The LT comes with everything listed above plus roof rails, remote start, heated mirrors, and a cargo cover. The LT is also available with a number of packages, including the LT Convenience Package, Driver Confidence Package, and Sun and Sound Package. On the Premier, you’ll get heated front seats, faux leather upholstery, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

Conclusion:

The 2020 Chevrolet Trax left us wanting not just a little bit more, but a lot more in every department. The 2020 Jeep Renegade, on the other hand, has us feeling excited and wanting to get out and enjoy the outdoors. If you’re feeling excited about the Jeep Renegade as well and want to take the SUV out on a test drive, then you should hop on down and visit us here at Speedway CDJR of Lansing.
