Introducing the Jeep Patriot from Vero Beach Jeep, America’s greatest priced SUV. Compared to the 2006-2010 models, the 2011-14 Jeep Patriot had larger spring and damping prices, added rebound springs, and an elevated diameter of the rear sway bar but (in 2011 at least) the finest 4×4 fuel economy in its segment. The 2011-14 Jeep Patriot 4×4 included a low-variety mode with a ideal-in-class 19:1 crawl ratio, brake traction manage, 19-inch water fording capability, Hill Descent Manage, 4×4 Lock (which sends 50 percent of torque to front and rear wheels), and a maximum tow rating of two,000 lbs.
Fuel economy begins at 23 mpg city/29 mpg hwy/25 mpg combined with the manual, dropping to 21 mpg city/28 mpg hwy/23 mpg combined with the six-speed automatic (20 mpg city/26 mpg hwy/22 mpg combined with all-wheel drive) and 20 mpg city/23 mpg hwy/21 mpg combined with the Freedom Drive II/CVT mixture. Schedule a test drive these days to find out how our Chrysler Jeep dealership can serve you. Although the Patriot was out there with front wheel drive, two optional 4 wheel drive packages had been readily available: Freedom Drive I and the Freedom Drive II with an Off-Road Package.
Opt for Freedom Drive II, and the Patriot will do a decent impression of a true SUV in the bushes. The Jeep Patriot had a standard body-color grille and fascias, accent-color bodyside molding, black door handles, accent-colour liftgate appliqué, black side roof rails, 16-inch styled steel wheels and all-season tires. We partner with nearby Jeep Patriot dealers across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland to provide you with the largest decision of Jeep Patriot cars accessible in your area. Each trims of the Jeep Patriot can be had with either of the Freedom Drive 4WD systems.
If you are tight on cash but yearn for a new Jeep, the Patriot can be your ticket into the brand. I bought a new Jeep from this dealer just a year just before so knew they had been uncomplicated to work with. Provided the amount of time we spent with the gas pedal on the floor, we were mildly impressed with this Patriot’s 21-mpg observed fuel economy, just 1 mpg shy of the EPA combined rating. In government crash tests, the Patriot received three stars for front impacts (there is no side-impact or overall rating).
Keep in thoughts, although, that this vehicle (which shares its powertrains and platform with the underwhelming Jeep Compass ) is approaching the end of its production. Compass and Patriot shared an interior for 2009, it was improved with additional padding, superior supplies, and additional graceful lines and curves. In short, the Patriot group had to make tough decisions in order to bring an off-road-capable Jeep vehicle to industry at a competitive price. When this engine is paired with the CVT, consumption is 22 mpg city/26 mpg hwy/24 mpg combined.
