There's nothing quite like a cross-country road trip. And since we went from LA to Detroit in our long-term 2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk, we figured we'd share the experience with a video.

    Or better fuel economy. 12.7 gallon tank 250 miles = 19.7mpg. lets say you had .7 gallons left 20.8 mpg, I'll give you a whole gallon left in the tank... 21.4mpg on the freeway, in a 4 cylinder, with a 9spd? transmission? Joke.

    my m235 gets better mpg in the burbs, on short <3 mile trips in winter, with winter tires.

    Running your tank down to fumes on a winter road trip in unfamiliar territory is going beyond irresponsible and well into outright stupid.
  • This is all on that crappy Tigershark engine. The 2014 Cherokee with the 3.2L Pentastar and this same 9-speed tranny would do 30 mpg on the highway...in a larger, heavier vehicle.

    If you run above 75 mph, you are going to take a huge mpg hit, especially in a box-shaped car. It is possible he was only putting 9.5 or 10 gallons in at each fill up, which pegs economy around 25. Still not great for a small car.

    BINGO! Its a turd and needs to die! If it had the engine it should have; a nice 1.6/8 turbo as its top line engine this would be a compelling Jeep to buy,

    Yeah wow on that mileage (and tank size). My Cummins 2500 Ram gets that mileage lol
  • My '05 Escape V6 2WD 4speed auto gets better fuel economy than this and its 10 years older and has about 130K more miles. I routinely get 300-350 miles per tank and I put in 14 gallons.

    The Renegade doesn't need a bigger gas tank; it needs significantly better fuel economy. I wonder if the EPA will eventually call out FCA for the huge gap between the Renegade's EPA claims, and reality.
