Jeep Renegade Towbars
Jeep Renegade Towing Specifics
The Jeep Renegade was first introduced in 2015 by the American manufacturer as a subcompact crossover SUV, that carries impressive towing abilities. Currently, there is one generation of the Jeep Renegade, 2015 onwards. We will cover the towing specifics of this generation below.
Jeep Renegade 2015 onwards Towbar Electrics Kits
It is recommended that all tow bars fitted to a Jeep Renegade 2015 onwards are done so with a dedicated electrics kit, rather than a universal electrics kit. A dedicated electrics kit not only ensures all modern features such as; trailer stability and parking sensors are functional but also helps to keep your vehicle's warranty unaffected.
We offer both universal and dedicated electrics kits for the Jeep Renegade 2015 onwards towbars, but be aware that universal electrics kits can invalidate any manufacturer warranty your vehicle has and may also require a bypass relay.
Check your Jeep warranty for more information.
All tow bars for the Jeep Renegade 2015 onwards will require a bypass relay if universal electrics are fitted.
A bypass relay works by powering what it is you are towing through transferring power straight from the battery instead of taking too much current away from your vehicle.
Whereas a dedicated system works in harmony with your vehicle's ECU and all of its functions.
This is the coding of the ECU to accept the dedicated system, this updates your vehicles software to run smoothly with the new towbar. Jeep Renegade vehicles made 2015 onwards will not require coding.
Coding is used to update your vehicles software in order for it to run coherently with the new towbar through the dedicated electrics.
Depending on the towbar, Jeep Renegade 2015 onwards vehicles may require a bumper cut. A bumper cut is when a fraction of the vehicle's rear bumper is cut in order to fit the towbar. There is a non-visible bumper cut for the tow bars offered with the Jeep Cherokee range.
Nose weight is the amount of weight pushing down on the tow ball, it is important not to exceed the nose weight set on the tow bar, failure to do so could damage the car chassis and/or tow bar mounting points. For any Jeep Renegade vehicle manufactured 2015 onwards, the lowest nose weight is 100kg and the highest nose weight is 150kg. Nose weight varies depending on the towbar you choose and are displayed under each tow bar below.
Towing weight is the weight that a Jeep Renegade 2015 onwards towbar can tow safely, without any risk of damaging the vehicle. Towing weights are bar specific and displayed below each towbar.
For the Jeep Cherokee range, the towing weight capacity for the tow bars is between 2500kg up to 2600kg depending on which towbar you chose.
You will need to check the towing limit for your Renegade vehicle model as it may not be able to tow up to the weight limit that the tow bar can tow.
