About the Jeep Patriot

The Patriot is the more traditional-looking of Jeep's two debut models for 2007. Released on the heels of its car-based counterpart, the Compass, it displays more of the squareness that have marked Jeep vehicles over the decades.
Although the base model is not Trail Rated without the addition of optional equipment, the vehicle boasts significant ground clearance and a considerable suite of safety features. These include ABS, stability control, and electronic roll mitigation.
A properly-equipped Patriot 4x4 will be at ease on the trails, although the reality is that it is based on a car, the Dodge Caliber, and its steering and suspension are thusly tuned. This was Jeep's intention, as the Patriot is meant to appeal to those who want a road car first and a fairly tough trail vehicle for the occasional weekend foray.
That said, the loaded 4x4 is definitely superior to its entry-level sport-ute competition. Its Off-Road options group adds descent control, low-range gearing, brake-lock differentials, skid plates, tow hooks, fog lamps, a heavy-duty cooling system, and a full-sized spare tire in addition to a bonus inch of ground clearance.
