Do You Feel Patriotic?

Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Illinois

When you are shopping for a great Jeep to drive, you might wonder which Jeep at All Star Jeep Dealer near Illinois would be best for you. We are going to talk about the Jeep Patriot and the different things that it offers to its drivers.

Here in the good ol’ U.S. of A. the Patriot uses either the 2.0 L or 2.4 L World gasoline I4 engine. (In Europe and Australia there are some different engine types.)Both front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive are available. The Patriot features two four-wheel drive systems both of which are electronically controlled. The basic four-wheel drive system is called Freedom Drive I. This system is a full-time front-wheel-drive based 4WD/AWD system that is front-wheel-drive when it has traction, but can automatically put up to 20-30% power to the rear wheels, or can be locked in 50-50 below a certain speed. The other system, called Freedom Drive II, is based on Freedom Drive I, but by using the vehicle’s CVT transmission it is capable of a 19:1 gear reduction simulating a low range usually found in vehicles with dedicated transfer cases. The 2.4 L GEMA I4 is an option for the 4X2 model Patriot. (The Patriot uses a continuously variable transmission equipped with a four wheel drive system, marketed as Freedom Drive II, capable of holding the lowest ratio the CVT can reach, in lieu of a traditional two-speed transfer case. The Patriot carries Jeep’s “Trail Rated” badging.)

In 2009, Jeep Patriot added an extended range electric vehicle to its trim line up. It was not well received and lacked the driving power most Jeep drivers want, so FCA got rid of this model. (This information was compiled from Jeep.com.)
