2016 Jeep Patriot
The vehicle is powered by a 2.0-liter DOHC 16 valve four-cylinder engine. In action, the engine produces 158 horsepower at 141 lbs of foot torque. In comparison, that’s almost the same amount of horsepower as the Subaru Forester’s 2.5-liter engine. For buyers looking for something with a little more power, the Patriot is also available with a peppier 2.4-liter engine.
Buyers have a couple options when purchasing a new Patriot. The Patriot Sport’s standard transmission is a manual five-speed, but they can choose a six-speed automatic transmission instead. Additionally, the Patriot Sport comes as a standard front-wheel drive vehicle, but for an additional $2,000, buyers can opt for the vehicle to be outfitted with four-wheel drive.
Drivers can expect around 23 MPG city and 30 MPG on the highway and the vehicle has a standard towing capacity of 1,000 lbs. and maxes out at 2,000 lbs.
While there aren’t many bells or whistles on the Sport trim, its utilitarian design gives buyers their money’s worth. For starters, the Patriot is a roomy five passenger CUV. It provides sufficient passenger and cargo space, and its high ceilings means it’s comfortable for tall people and easy to get in and out. The rear seats are 60/40 recline and split fold seats which can provide extra trunk space when needed. The standard upholstery is gray or black cloth.
Buyers of the Patriot get a complimentary 1-year subscription to Sirius XM radio. Other entertainment features include Uconnect voice command with Bluetooth, a USB port and Audio jack so drivers or passengers can play music or audiobooks from their smartphones or other mobile devices.
The exterior of the Patriot is reminiscent of Jeep’s classic lines, and will appeal to anyone looking for a crossover. The Patriot Sport is outfitted with with 16” steel wheels and all season tires. The Sport comes with fog lights, solar control glass and comes in eight different exterior colors.
The 2016 Jeep Patriot Sport should appeal to true Jeep enthusiasts, as it mirrors the Jeep ideal–economy, utility, and affordability. The great thing about the Patriot, however, is its buildability. Trim options are plentiful, and added easily at reasonable prices.
For those looking to add a little extra off-road capabilities to their car, the Freedom Drive II package, available with four-wheel drive trims, transforms the Sport into a little off road beast.
Freedom Drive II provides the Sport with full time, 4×4 traction, LOCK mode selection, and electronically controlled coupling that monitors and controls traction. Additionally, there is HDC (hill descent control), a grade-sensing feature, as well as gear ratio advantages for rugged terrain.
These upgrades will boost the price, of course, but thrifty consumers will enjoy the affordability of the advantages Jeep Patriot Sport offers, particularly when compared to more expensive Jeep models, as well as the higher priced competition. The Sport exemplifies value. Rugged, reliable, and inexpensive, it’s perfect for economically conscious consumers who would like to own a Jeep.
All Jeeps come with a 3-year or 36,000-mile basic warranty, 5-year or 60,000-mile powertrain warranty and limited roadside assistance. And to stay true to the Jeep’s roots as an all-season, off-roading vehicle, all Jeeps have a 5-year or 100,000-mile rust-through warranty.
