New 2017 Jeep Patriot at Dublin Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for Macon, GA
The 2017 Jeep Patriot rings in the new year with an incredible amount of packages (and features) in addition to three different powertrain choices. The compact-SUV Patriot achieves a superb fuel economy of up to 30 mpg highway and employs 30-plus safety points, like a responsive suspension, standard Electronic Stability Control (ESC), and available Hill-descent Control. Be informed that the 2017 Patriot can tow up to 2,000-lbs when correctly outfitted. The 2017 Patriot keeps adding on to a remarkably grounded knowledge base that Jeep has and carries forward again the torch of to being among the most well-priced SUVs in the USA.
Under the Patriot's Hood
The Patriot has two engine choices and five transmission choices! The Trailer Tow Prep Group is an option which has hill-start assist and hill-descent control. Front-wheel drive is available on either engine. The Patriot's 2.0L DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine with dual VVT sees 158 horsepower and 141 lb-ft of torque. The 2.4-liter, depending on if it's in 2- or 4-wheel drive (and trim), can be paired up with a 5-speed automatic, a 6-speed automatic with Autostick, or the continuously variable transaxle II low (CVT2L) transmission. There is also a 2.0-liter engine on the Patriot that can be put with a continuously variable transaxle II (CVT2) with Autostick (2WD only) transmission-- or, it will use a 5-speed manual (2WD only) transmission instead. The Freedom Drive I system is always on for regular roads, and the Freedom Drive II is meant for off-roading. A 2.4L DOHC 16-valve dual VVT 4-cylinder engine is a choice for the Patriot with its 172 horsepower and 165 lb-ft of torque. The larger engine can be supplemented with 1 of 2 all-wheel drive systems (optional) with the Freedom Drive I and/or the Freedom Drive II.
Design of Jeep Patriot
The 2017 Jeep Patriot has two central trims, the Sport or Latitude, and 3 offshoots of those (the High Altitude Edition, the 75th Anniversary Edition, and the Sport SE).

Continuing features of that Group are an engine oil cooler, tow hooks, a transmission/engine oil pan skid plate, Hill-start Assist (HSA), a driver's seat height adjuster, a trailer tow wiring harness, a fuel tank skid plate, a full-size spare, a 140-amp alternator, an exhaust tip, all-season floor mats, and a 'Trail Rated' badge!
