Jeep has a two-pronged approach to the entry-level SUV segment. The Patriot and its fraternal twin, the Compass, aim at slightly different customers. While the Compass is primarily an on-road vehicle, the Patriot has the traditional Jeep cues and capabilities to appeal to Jeep's traditional clientele. The most common engine is a 172-bhp 2.4L I-4, coupled to a 5-speed manual or two Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVT2 or CVT2L). Although the base Patriot is FWD, Jeep has two 4WD drivetrain configurations for customers who want to go off-road. An optional off-road package includes full Trail Rated capability, which means skid plates, 1-inch higher ground clearance, all-terrain tires with full-size spare, and a low-range mode for the CVT2L. All Patriots are equipped with comprehensive safety equipment, which includes Brake Traction Control, Electronic Stability Program (ESP), ABS, side-curtain airbags, and Electronic Roll Mitigation. With its rugged styling and off-road capability, the Jeep Patriot could make a sizable dent in the compact SUV market.
The optional 2.0L four-cylinder is now offered with a 5-speed manual.
