The Renegade launched in 2015 and became the smallest Jeep on the market. The subcompact was one of the first in a growing segment. While it might look like just half a Jeep, it is surprisingly capable off road with all-wheel drive offered and the ability to get one that has earned a Trail Rated badge for hitting the dirt and rocks.
