About

Jeep has kept its Patriot fairly similar looking to its predecessor, although there has been a reduction in height by an inch, an optional hood decal, some new color schemes and new mineral grey wheels. When it comes to value too, the Patriot is well worth your consideration.

Exterior Features

The Patriot comes complete with a seven-slot grille, clamshell hood, round headlamps, roof rails and a robust bumper, which are all classic Jeep trademarks. The headlamps are now automatic rather than manual for easier use. In terms of wheels you get to choose between five different versions ranging from the 16” styled steel wheels (standard on the Sport) available also in black. There are also the 17” tech silver aluminum wheels (standard on the Latitude), 17” mineral gray aluminum wheels (standard on the Sport SE), or finally the 17” aluminum wheels with granite painted pockets (standard on the High Altitude).

Interior features

It comes with all the technological features that you might expect from a 2017 vehicle, including a SiriusXM Satellite Radio that comes with a one-year subscription included. It also has audio controls mounted on the steering wheel, automatic temperature controls, heated seats for the coldest of days, and leather trimmed seats with a six-way power driver seat. You can opt for a nine-speaker Boston Acoustics Premium Audio System that comes with a subwoofer. To this you can add two flip-down speakers that project sound when the boot is open.

Technology

The Patriot operates a system called UCONNECT SYSTEMS which comes with a number of features from navigation to touchscreen menus, to interactive entertainment.

Engine & Fuel-Efficiency

If you are opting for a 4×2 drive train then you will have two options of engines to choose from; the 2.0l 16V producing 158 hp, or the 2.4l 16V producing 172 hp. For the 4×4 options the only available engine is the bigger one. You will get around the same MPG with both engines of around 27 / city and 36 / highway.

It also comes with a rear parking camera on the touchscreen that helps with backing up and parking. In total the Patriot offers over 30 available safety and security features, available as either standard or optional.
