The Jeep® Patriot proudly wears the Trail Rated® badge when equipped with the Freedom Drive II® Off-Road Group – signifying its ability to perform under off-road conditions. It carries on the Jeep brand tradition of having legendary traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and water fording abilities.
Patriot offers an efficient 2.0L DOHC 16V 158-hp four-cylinder engine capable of delivering a powerful 141 lb-ft of torque. Matched to a five-speed manual 2WD transaxle or the available CVT2 automatic transmission, it comes with a convenient automatic oil change monitoring system.
Also available is the 2.4L 172-hp World Engine capable of delivering 165 lb-ft of torque. Coupled with a five-speed manual tranmsission or the available, smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission, it provides up to 28 hwy mpg. The versatile Patriot vehicle becomes capable of towing up to an awesome 2,000 pounds.
Freedom Drive I™ system provides you with active, full-time 4WD capability with Brake Traction Control and selectable LOCK mode. Freedom Drive I™ features an Electronically Controlled Coupling (ECC) that monitors wheel slippage and transfers torque to the axle that can use it most. In tough conditions, it can be locked 50/50 front/rear for added low-speed capability and control. When not in low speed Off-Road LOCK mode, torque is adjusted on-demand for added fuel efficiency. This system’s capability and control handles difficult situations both on- and off-road including deep snow, mud and up to 19-inches of water.
To help the Patriot 4×4 handle harsh conditions, we’ve grouped all-terrain tires, tow hooks, an engine block heater and more into a single package.
Available heavy-duty forged steel tow hooks are perfect for helping pull less-capable vehicles out of ditches and include two front-mounted and one rear-frame mounted tow hooks.
Skid plates help protect the underside of your vehicle from off-road rocks and on-road debris. Available with the Freedom Drive II® Off-Road Group.
