There are also two engines offered to power the EcoSport. The base engine is a 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine that creates 125 pound-feet of torque and 123 horsepower. This engine comes with standard front-wheel drive. The second, optional engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 149 lb-ft of torque and 166 horsepower. Ford outfits this engine with standard all-wheel drive. Both engine options are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

2020 Jeep Renegade Features & Design

The base model is the Sport and it comes with a removable cargo floor panel, air conditioning, heated and power-adjustable mirrors, a 5-inch touchscreen, a rearview camera, a USB port, Bluetooth connectivity, and 16-inch steel wheels. The upper trims add features like a 7-inch touchscreen, dual-zone automatic climate control, smartphone integration, automatic headlights, roof rails, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, keyless entry and ignition, larger wheels, and more. The Trailhawk trim level adds on off-roading oriented features like underbody skid plates, a raised suspension, hill descent control, tow hooks, and four-wheel drive with low-range settings.

Conclusion:

Now that we have taken a deep dive into what these two SUVs have to offer, it is clear to see that the Ford EcoSport does offer some good features but the lack of engine power doesn’t impress us. With that said, we have to give this winning title to the 2020 Jeep Renegade.
