Jeep Renegade vs. Chevy Trax

Comparing the Chevy Trax to the Jeep Renegade at Wally's CDJR of Nelliston

Smaller SUVs like the new Jeep Renegade can flex between solo adventures in the Adirondacks and family trips around Nelliston, Fort Plain, and Upstate New York. Few crossovers prove to be more fun on all four wheels than the Jeep Renegade, which leaps past rivals like the Chevy Trax. See how Jeep's affordable subcompact SUV compares to the Chevy Trax before buying this new Jeep at Wally's CDJR of Nelliston.

Jeep Renegade vs. Chevy Trax — Interior and Exterior Design

Have more space for gear on explorations in the Adirondacks with the Jeep Renegade, which offers 50.8 cubic feet of cargo space. This surpasses the Chevy Trax's 48.4 cubic feet. Chevy's small SUV features 60/40 second-row split-folding seats, while Jeep's smallest SUV counters with 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats and an adjustable cargo floor. The Jeep Renegade is also more luxurious, offering cabin comforts like a Jeep Air Filter and a dual-pane panoramic sunroof.

From the outside, the Jeep Renegade looks more visually appealing to off-road enthusiasts. They'll appreciate the Jeep Renegade's red tow hooks, front fascia, and black hood decal on Trailhawk® models, which the Chevy Trax can't match.

Jeep Renegade vs. Chevy Trax Performance

Thanks to the Renegade's Trail Rated® badge, a legendary Jeep 4x4 system, and Selec-Terrain® Traction Control, it's easy for Fort Plain drivers to maneuver any road surface on either side of the Mohawk River.

The Chevy Trax fails to counter this off-road capability. Chevy's SUV can't cross creeks and only offers 6.2 inches of ground clearance. Jeep's SUV offers water fording capability and 8.7 inches of ground clearance to clear obstacles with ease.

Both SUVs earn 32 highway miles per gallon on I-90 and New York highways. The Jeep Renegade offers a more robust 1.3-liter four-cylinder direct injection Turbo engine to produce 177 horsepower and 210 pound-feet of torque, beating the Chevy Trax's ECOTEC® turbocharged engine by 22 ponies and 33 pound-feet of torque.

Jeep Renegade vs. Chevy Trax — Safety, Technology & Other Key Features

The Jeep Renegade offers Nelliston drivers more peace of mind with 70 standard and available safety and security features. Both offer blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic features, but the Chevy Trax doesn't offer LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist like the Jeep Renegade. Chevy's Rear Vision Camera can't compare to Jeep's ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera and the Renegade's ParkSense® Front & Rear Park Assist feature.

Jeep's SUV also does a better job of keeping New York drivers entertained on explorations, thanks to Uconnect® 4C NAV with an 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen, making this the largest standard navigation system in the subcompact SUV class. Jeep Skill for Amazon Alexa and SiriusXM Guardian™ access gives the Jeep Renegade a tech edge over the Chevy Trax with its basic Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system.
