2016 Jeep Patriot Review

Isn’t it time you drove a vehicle that satisfies your wandering spirit? The Jeep Patriot has the capability to take you from a back street to back country in style and comfort. Boasting rugged and iconic good looks the Patriot continues the Jeep tradition of delivering legendary traction ground clearance and maneuverability. And it does it all with eye-opening fuel efficiency numbers. Choose from 5 models starting at $17 595 for the Sport the top of the line High Altitude starts at $24 775. The available 2.4-liter I4 engine delivers plenty of brawn and with a tow rating of up to 2000 pounds your toys and tools can come along too. Add the available all-weather capability group with all-terrain tires tow hooks an engine block heater and more and harsh conditions are no match for a 4X4 Jeep Patriot. There’s spacious seating for 5 and your Patriot’s cabin totals a roomy 53.5 cubic feet of cargo volume. Make your Patriot as unique as you are when you choose from a variety of exterior colors and internal finishes. See ALL of the world in your Jeep Patriot.
With a number of interior conveniences like steering wheel mounted controls and heated seats the Patriot aims to please. Inside you’ll have room for 5 and by lowering the 60/40 split-folding reclining rear seats the cabin opens up to give you a roomy 53.5 cubic feet of cargo volume making room for all your toys. And with two available flip-down liftgate speakers you take your music outdoors so the party never ends. Choose between a standard four-speaker audio system or an available 368-watt nine-speaker Boston Acoustics Premium Sound System with subwoofer.
The Patriot lets you bundle security and convenience features together like the available Security and Cargo Convenience Group. Depending on the model the package includes a security alarm Tire Pressure Monitoring Display vehicle information center and more. Patriot’s Electronic Stability Control keeps you on the road by sensing when you begin to over or under-steer by applying the brakes to individual wheel and controlling the throttle to help put you back on track. The four-wheel Antilock Brake System offers added vehicle control and can help decrease stopping distances on both dry and slippery surfaces.
The Patriot offers an efficient 158-horsepower 2-liter four-cylinder engine capable of delivering the power you need for fording streams or trips to the grocery. Also available is the 172-horsepower 2.4-liter World Engine delivering all-weather capability and up to 29 highway miles per gallon with the standard five-speed manual transmission. With the available Trailer Tow Prep Group or the Freedom Drive II Off-Road Group Patriot can tow up to 2 000 pounds. That means everything from camp trailers fishing boats or snowmobiles can come along.
