  • The Renegade's base four-cylinder engine is capable of producing 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, while the EcoSport's base three-cylinder engine only hits 123 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque; you'll pull ahead without breaking a sweat in the Renegade.
  • Even with the most powerful engines equipped, the Renegade offers more. The Renegade's 2.4-liter I4 engine hits a maximum of 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque, while the EcoSport's 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine only offers a maximum of 166 horsepower and 149 lb-ft of torque - barely even comparable with the Renegade's base engine!

  • The Renegade Trailhawk trim provides best-in-class off-road capability, making it the obvious choice over the EcoSport if you plan to leave the paved roads behind and take to the trails.
  • Taller drivers will love how the Renegade offers more head and shoulder room in both the front and rear seats than the EcoSport.
  • Last but not least, the Renegade comes with 10 exterior color options for you to choose from; the EcoSport, on the other hand, only provides you with 6 exterior color options.
