Some of the best adventures in Newell, Weirton, and Salem call for some extra gear. For that, you need a capable SUV with a big towing capacity.

If you're wondering whether the Jeep Renegade towing capacity is enough for your next adventure, our team here at Hancock County Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram has the answer. We know that this SUV can tow up to 2,000 pounds, but if you want to learn more about what's behind all that power, read our guide below!

Jeep Renegade Hauling Power

The Jeep Renegade can be outfitted with one of two engines, so it'll be easy to make sure that you have the strength that you need. There's the standard 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 engine. It produces up to 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. Plus, it's paired up with the standard 9-speed automatic transmission, which helps harness that power to maximize towing capacity.

If you need even more strength, there's the available 1.3L MultiAir® Turbo engine, which kicks out 177 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes with Stop/Start Technology which will help increase the efficiency of the Renegade while you tow.

Finally, there are the available 4x4 systems, which give you better traction on slippery roads and all-terrain paths. They'll help you get your haul anywhere it needs to go!

Tow Confidently with the Jeep Renegade

Along with a capable 2,000-pound towing capacity, the Jeep Renegade also comes with a variety of smart driver-assisting technologies that help give you more peace of mind out on the road. The standard ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera does more than just help you park. It'll make hitching up your trailer a breeze. Simply line it up with the dynamic gridlines!

Once you get rolling, there's also the standard Trailer Sway Damping. It works with the Electronic Stability Control to intuitively adjust the throttle and apply braking pressure to help better control your haul.

When you're cruising down the highway with a trailer in-tow you'll also have the available Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop. It can automatically adjust your speed to maintain a set distance between you and the car ahead. It can even bring the Jeep Renegade to a complete stop without driver input!

Towing Comfortably

Whether you're towing your jet ski out to the lake or bringing a utility trailer to your favorite campsite, you'll be able to do so comfortably with the Jeep Renegade. It offers available amenities like heated front seats and steering wheel, so you can stay warm even when your adventure leads into the cold.

Adding to that, you and up to four passengers can sit back and relax in the leather-trimmed seats. Plus, the available Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control will let everyone choose their ideal level of comfort.

You'll also be able to stay connected while towing in the Jeep Renegade. The available Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ will let you keep up with the apps and music that you love. Plus, you'll be able to control it all from the available 8.4-inch Uconnect® touchscreen display!
