After spending a few days in our 2015 Jeep Renegade, I decided that I like it overall. I do have my share of gripes, but I think that light off-roaders will enjoy this offering.

    "The MSRP of our Renegade is $31,465, so he could find a used Jeep Wrangler at a similar price. Granted, it would be a used Wrangler with a lot more miles, but it was still a valid concern."

    Nonsense. You can get a brand new Wrangler S with the 5-speed auto for $29k. Get the 6-speed manual and you can knock just over a grand off of that number. $33k will get you a Rubicon with the 6-speed, which is vastly more capable than your Renegade. $31k would probably get you a used Rubicon with under 20k miles on it.

    That's my biggest issue with the Renegade as you have it configured, $31k is an absurd number even in today's world of inflated sticker prices.

    I'd go with a used JK as well- likely in Sahara trim...

    low mileage Grand Cherokee - better 4WD System, better onroad, more room, more comfort, nicer interior

    All of the above is true, but I would wager you could also get a Renegade for much less than the sticker on Edmunds' ride -- yes, even a Trailhawk.

    @misterfusion: you are probably correct, and you probably won't get a huge amount off of a Wrangler as they sell very very well.
