Choosing the Best Commuter Vehicle

August 3,2021

Commuters typically look for the typical characteristics of fuel economy, comfort, and safety when choosing their perfect commuter car. Luckily, we have lots of new and pre-owned vehicles that meet all those requirements and more here at Journey Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram on Christmas Way. 
One of our staff favourites, a subcompact SUV that lots of our commuters enjoy driving is the Jeep Renegade. Since it’s sporty and sleek, Jeep designed the Renegade with moving in mind.  
Fuel Economy 
For seasoned commuters, fuel economy is a number-one issue. Not only do commuters appreciate saving at the pump, but they appreciate not having to go to the pump as often. 
Our Jeep Renegade is a small but mighty subcompact. With its standard 2.4-litre Tigershark MultiAir 2 four-cylinder engine, it gets an EPA-estimated 22 city/30 highway mpg. When combined with the nine-speed automatic transmission, it also has Engine Start/Stop Technology that significantly maximizes fuel economy. 
With ratings like those, you’re guaranteed to spend your time on the road and not refuelling. Ask one of our knowledgeable sales team members how to maximize efficiency to a possible 24 city/32 highway.  
If you’re going to spend a lot of time inside your vehicle, you should feel as though you’re in an extension of your home – or as close as you can get. The Jeep Renegade is the perfect blend of comfort and adventure, all wrapped up in one package. 
With an exciting array of available fabrics, colours, and seating options, you can choose your favourite without settling for less. The Renegade seats five comfortably, and there is plenty of legroom in both the front and back seats. 
Don’t let cold Coquitlam mornings keep you frosty. With a heated steering wheel and heated front seats, it will take no time before your cheeks are rosy again. We didn’t stop at warming only the interior. With heated side mirrors, rest assured of a clear view on both frigid mornings and late-night drives.  
Maybe you don’t like the heater blowing warm air as much as your passenger? Don’t worry. With Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control, you can both set the temperature your way.  

Fun Features 
You can’t be all business all the time. The Renegade certainly isn’t. Want a little air? The available My Sky Power Removable Sunroof features two easily removable panels that can be stored in the cargo area, allowing you to get some fresh air on your drive home. 
With Apple Carplay Support or Android Auto Integration, you can expect to stay connected! Listen to your favourite music or podcasts, receive and send calls and texts (hands-free, of course), and get available navigation guidance all at the tips of your fingers. 
With an available 4G Wi-Fi hotspot that can connect up to 8 devices within a 50-foot radius of your vehicle, you’ll never miss anything!
It doesn’t matter if you are a commuter or not. Safety is everyone’s highest priority lately. The Jeep brand has combined an incredible amount of engineering know-how and the latest technologies to make our brand one of the safest on the road. 
Whether you’re a long-distance commuter or just driving around the neighbourhood, we want you and the passengers you love most to be as safe as possible. With over 70 standard and available safety and security technologies, the Renegade is ready to go whenever you are. 
Driver Assistance Technologies include: 

Adaptive Cruise Control. Not only do you get to choose your preferred speed, but you also select the distance you want to safely keep between your vehicle and the traffic in front of you. As traffic slows, the system slows your car, too. When traffic picks back up and it’s safe to continue moving at your preset speeds, the system will get you back to cruising levels again. This favourite feature is great for resting your feet and legs on long-distance drives. 

Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection. With this system activated, you’ll never have to turn and swivel your neck and shift your body in the seat to see behind you again! If you have a vehicle in your blind spot, the system will alert you with a small light on the corresponding side-view mirror. Should you ignore the light alert and continue trying to change lanes, you’ll get an audible warning. 

LaneSense Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist. If your system notices unintentional lane changes, especially without using your turn indicator, or if it notices irregularities in acceleration and deceleration, you’ll be alerted. If you don’t take corrective action, the system will gently guide you back into your lane. 

Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking. By scanning the road ahead, the system alerts you immediately if it senses a potential front-end impact. If you don’t respond, and the risk doesn’t subside, your brakes will be engaged automatically. 

At Journey Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we listen to your priorities and match you with the vehicle we think will work best for you. Whether you’re a commuter, hobbyist, or first-time driver, the Jeep Renegade has lots to offer. Come down TODAY and see what a Renegade can do for you!
