2021 Jeep Renegade vs Chevy Trax

There is a lot to love about smaller SUVs! They are easier to park and have very well-designed interiors, which easily endear them to the consumer. Two of the most impressive SUVs of this kind on the market are the 2021 Renegade and the Chevy Trax. Both of these wonderful vehicles come with solid engine options and tons of advanced tech, but which one has the advantage? For the answer, we have compared these two SUVs side by side to see which one comes out on top.

2021 Jeep Renegade Power & Handling

When you lift the hood of you will be greeted with one of two engine options. Standard is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that pumps out 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque and comes with a quick nine-speed automatic transmission. Four-wheel-drive is an available option if you choose. Looking to go with the Limited or Trailhawk? Then it will come with a touch more power in the form of a turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder that kicks out 177 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque and also pairs with the outstanding nine-speed automatic. This engine comes standard with the four-wheel-drive, which you are sure to love if you want added traction.

2021 Chevy Trax Power & Handling

Only one engine is available for the Chevy Trax, and we think it's a little disappointing. It's a turbocharged four-cylinder that comes with up to 155 horsepower and front-wheel-drive, all-wheel-drive is available, but we prefer the four-wheel-drive of the Jeep Renegade a little more. This engine pairs with automatic transmission, and we do think it's a solid engine that will get you to where you want to go, but if you're looking for more power, we recommend the Jeep Renegade.

2021 Jeep Renegade Features & Design

With four available trims, the Jeep Renegade is never short on available features. Things start on the right foot with the Sport, which comes with 16-inch wheels, heated and power-adjustable mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, air conditioning, cruise control, and a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There is a Jeepster version of the Sport which adds to the fun with 19-inch aluminum wheels, a gloss black grille, and black cloth seats. The next available trim is the Latitude which adds to the Sport with automatic headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, leather-wrapped steering wheel, tinted rear windows, and upgraded cloth upholstery. Want a little more luxury? Then the Limited is the trim for you as it comes with 18-inch wheels, automatic wipers with de-icers, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, keyless ignition and entry, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Go off-road with the Trailhawk as it comes with some premium off-road features such as a raised suspension, front and rear tow hooks, underbody skid plates, and hill descent control.

2021 Chevy Trax Features & Design

The Chevy Trax tries to counteract what the Renegade offers with only two trims. The first trim for the Trax is the LS which comes with a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a wi-fi hotspot, a six-speaker sound system, and a 60/40-split folding rear seat. The LT adds some more impressive features such as cruise control, upgraded seating surfaces, LED running lights, roof rails, and heated outside mirrors. Several options are available for both trims, such as blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition and entry, a power-adjustable driver's seat, a leather upholstery that comes with heated front seats. The Chevy Trax is honestly pretty bare bones!


There is little question about which of these SUVs is superior, and the Jeep Renegade has it all over the Chevy Trax! The engine options are more superior, and there are many more features throughout its four trim lineup. We highly recommend taking a test drive of the incredible Jeep Renegade by heading down to Marburger Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM and scheduling one with our knowledgeable and friendly sales team members who are more than happy to accompany you on the test drive so you can get used to all the features.
