2021 Jeep Renegade vs Chevy Trax

Smaller SUVs have a place in this modern landscape, and while there are a few of them out there on the market, but for us here at Victory Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Kingwood, there are only two that you need to take a look at. The 2021 Jeep Renegade and the Chevy Trax come with powerful engine options, tons of advanced features, and some terrific off-roading skills, which make all other SUVs jealous. While either one of these vehicles would make a great addition to anyone’s driveway, we think there is only one that stands alone. For the answer as to which one we think you should be driving home, continue reading!

2021 Jeep Renegade Power & Handling

There are two impressive engines available for the Jeep Renegade, with the standard being a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that kicks out 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. This engine pairs with an outstanding nine-speed automatic transmission, and you have the option of four-wheel-drive if you choose. If you decide on one of the upper-level trims such as the Limited or the Trailhawk, it will come standard with a turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder that pumps out 177 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque and also comes with a nine-speed automatic. This engine comes exclusively with four-wheel-drive, which is sure to come in handy on bad weather days!

2021 Chevrolet Trax Power & Handling

There is only one available engine for the Chevy Trax, which is a little disappointing. However, it’s a turbocharged four-cylinder engine which pumps out a decent 155 horsepower and front-wheel-drive. All-wheel-drive is an available option, but the four-wheel-drive on the Renegade is a better choice if you decide to go that way. While we think this is a solid engine choice, the two engines available for the Renegade offer you a little more power.

2021 Jeep Renegade Features & Design

There are four trim levels available for the Jeep Renegade, and each one comes with a ton of tech, luxury, and off-road features. The base trim is 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. The Jeepster sub-trim adds 19-inch aluminum wheels, a gloss black grille, and black cloth seats. Going with the Latitude adds even more goodies such as automatic headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, leather-wrapped steering wheel, tinted rear windows, and upgraded cloth upholstery. If you want more luxury features, you’ll find them with the Limited as you get 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. If you want to have some fun off-road, the Trailhawk trim is the one for you as it rounds things out with a raised suspension, front and rear tow hooks, underbody skid plates, and hill descent control.

2021 Chevrolet Trax Features & Design

The Chevy Trax only comes with two trim levels, so your features list is going to be massively limited. The base 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. Next up is the LT, which adds to this list with cruise control, upgraded seating surfaces, LED running lights, roof rails, and heated outside mirrors. In addition, this LT trim has some optional features, including blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition and entry, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a leather upholstery that comes with heated front seats. We honestly wish there were more features than this!


For us, there is no competition here; the Renegade has it all over the Chevy Trax! The engine options are more powerful, and we love all the features that the Renegade offers compared to the Trax. We highly recommend taking a test drive of the phenomenal Jeep Renegade by heading down to Victory Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Kingwood and scheduling one with our talented sales staff. We know you’re going to find a trim that you love, and when you do, we have a financial center that is excited to help you get a great deal!
