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 new six-speed automatic transmission, it comes with a convenient automatic oil change monitoring system.

In tough conditions, it can be locked 50/50 front/rear for added low-speed capability and control.
Confirming the Jeep® brand’s place as the leader in 4x4 innovation and off-road capability, the Trail Rated® badge signifies that any vehicle holding it has been tested to perform in five categories of off-road conditions including: traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and water fording.
The available Hill Descent Control helps monitor throttle, speed and braking when you need it most, while the Hill Start Assist keeps brakes applied for a short time after you’ve removed your foot from the brake, to give you time to accelerate. Patriot also boasts a four-wheel independent suspension with MacPherson strut front and multilink rear suspension for exceptional handling.
