2020 Jeep Renegade vs Chevy Trax

You’re in the market for a new SUV, but now you are unsure as to which SUV you should be purchasing. To help narrow down the options for you, we are looking at two of the top SUVs on the market today. These SUVs include the 2020 Jeep Renegade and the 2020 Chevy Trax. The Renegade manages to stand out thanks to its unique exterior styling, the optional safety features, the off-roading credentials, and the perfect size that makes it easier to maneuver than the competition. We are also looking at the 2020 Trax, which is lacking in standard driver aids, drops a few exterior colors, and is offering a Midnight Edition cosmetic package. Still not sure which to buy? Keep reading down below as we go through what these two SUVs have to offer you.

2020 Jeep Renegade Power & Handling

One thing that really helps to boost the 2020 Renegade is the fact that you can choose between two available engines. No matter which of the two engines you end up with, they will be matched with a nine-speed automatic transmission and either two- or four-wheel drive. The base engine that we are looking at first is a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder. This engine can pump out 175 pound-feet of torque and around 180 horsepower. The other engine that is offered with the Renegade is a turbocharged 1.3-liter 4-cylinder. This engine outputs 210 pound-feet of torque and up to 177 horsepower. As you can see, the Renegade means business, whether you’re on pavement or hitting the trails.

2020 Chevy Trax Power & Handling

Only one engine is available with the Chevrolet Trax. This engine is a 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, which can get you up to 148 pound-feet of torque and around 138 horsepower. Both front- and all-wheel drive are available here. As you can note, this is not four-wheel drive, which makes this an SUV that is better kept on the pavement. Otherwise, this engine is paired up with a six-speed automatic transmission that is lacking in the same smoothness that the nine-speed automatic transmission with the Renegade gives you.

The rest of the Renegade’s lineup gives you hill descent control, skid plates, power-adjustable driver’s seat, front seats, remote engine start, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, a full-size spare tire, tow hooks, and blind-spot monitoring.

2020 Chevy Trax Features & Design
