Jeep Trim Levels: Everything You Need to Know

By Jeffrey N. Ross | June 29, 2020

Jeep has the broadest lineup in the almost 80-year history with seven different models if you could the Wrangler and four-door Wrangler Unlimited separate. Since each of these crossovers and SUVs were designed for different segments, Jeep offers close to two dozen trim levels to fine tune the model lineup. With that many choices, choosing the right Jeep can be a daunting task, so to make things a little easier, we've broken down the differences in Jeep's most popular trim levels. Be sure to stop by our AutoNation Jeep dealership today to check out this extensive lineup of crossovers and SUVs.


Sport

The Sport trim is the base trim for Jeep

Putting the "sport" in Sport Utility Vehicle, Jeep offers a base Sport trim level on its most iconic models. For the 2020 model year, the Renegade, Compass, Wrangler and Gladiator all offer this Sport trim, but don't call these a base model.

The Renegade Sport, for example, comes standard with conveniences such as Jeep's Uconnect 3 infotainment system and push-button start, while safety features like Hill Start Assist and Trailer Sway Control are standard. All Wrangler and Gladiator come standard with four-wheel drive, but unlike other small crossovers, the Renegade and Compass offer four-wheel drive on all trim levels including Sport.
