2018 Chevy Trax vs. 2018 Jeep Renegade

The Chevy Trax vs. Jeep Renegade pits together two stylish players for a killer small SUV comparison. Detroit and Waterford drivers want an SUV that’s cool, but that also comes with lots of bells and whistles. Chevy Trax specs show off a long list of benefits, from safety and reliability to handling, and you can see everything for yourself at Bowman Chevy in Clarkston.

Reliability and Safety

There’s a big contrast when you compare Jeep vs. Chevy reliability. J.D. Power and Associates’ 2017 Initial Quality Study survey shows that Chevrolet vehicles are ranked much higher than Jeep vehicles – 6th vs. 23rd. The Trax is also built with several features that enhance durability, like a cast iron block in the engine, hardened steel chain camshafts, and a 525 amp battery. The Renegade just can’t compete, with its aluminum engine block, rubber belt camshafts, and 500 amp battery. Additionally, the Trax earned a 5-star overall safety score from the NHTSA, while the Renegade fell short with just 4 stars.


Not only does the Trax come with standard gas-charged shocks in the front and rear, which provide smooth control, even on bumpy roads, but it also stops much shorter than the Renegade – a 15 feet difference at 70 MPH to zero. The Trax also weighs approximately 250-300 pounds less than the Renegade, which may lead to better handling and acceleration.
