2018 Jeep Patriot Coming?

Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Clayton

We have talked before about how there was going to be a new Jeep model to replace both the Patriot and the Compass, into one super Jeep model. We think that there may be a change in the replacement plan. We say this because it seems as though there is going to be a new Jeep Patriot coming for 2018. We want to take a look at this new model today!

Contrary to the styling we can see on the exciting Patriot model, the replacements for the 2018 Jeep Patriot will lose its blocky look for more modern and close to Grand Cherokee design cues. Indeed, the new Compass model looks like smaller Grand Cherokee but also share a lot of similarities with the Renegade, which is a good thing if you want our opinion.

The Patriot replacement has Jeep’s signature seven-slot grille which resides between nicely accentuated headlights. Profile side features trapezoidal fender flares and pronounced beltline. The rear side also looks more sculpted and there are also new taillights.

On the other hand, what is also important to mention, this new model sits on the “small-wide” unibody platform. This light and stuff unibody structure has been made of 65 percent high-strength steel.

Inside, the model also brings more modern design and the newest technology. The quality of materials is better as well as the comfort.

“The fourth generation of the Uconnect infotainment system will also be there. The system supports Android Auto and Apple Car Play features and different screen sizes. Available will be 5-inch, 7-inch and 8.4-inch touchscreens depending on the trim level. The instrument panel will also be available with either 3.5-inch information display or 7-inch digital cluster.”-suv2018.net

When Did the Jeep Patriot Come Around?

Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Clayton

One of the amazing Jeep vehicles is the Jeep Patriot. It has been popular since it came out and is available for purchase at All Star Jeep Dealer near Clayton. Today we want to take a look at how the Jeep Patriot got its start.

It is important to note that the Jeep Patriot is considered by some to be the fraternal twin of the Jeep Compass. Both the Jeep Patriot and Compass shared the basic Caliber design, but also had toughened bodies and Trail Rated versions with low-gear AWD and skid plates.

“Styling was similar to the old Jeep Cherokee and the 2008 Jeep Liberty; Testers were surprised by its abilities at rock-climbing, trail-traversing, and stream-crossing. They weren’t in the same class as the Cherokee, but they were better than expected.”-allpar.com

Interior space was aided by the utilitarian form: the Jeep Patriot had 54.2 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded flat (62.7 if the front passenger seat was also folded). It could hold an 8-foot ladder, skis, or eight-foot lumber. The 2007s had two-tone interiors in dark and light gray or beige. Jeep Patriots sold in the United States and Canada had standard traction control, three-mode stability control, electronic roll mitigation, and anti-lock brakes with rough-road detection. Braking distance from 60 mph was 134 feet on dry pavement. The Jeep Patriot started out with a standard 2.4-liter World Engine that produced 172-horsepower and 165 lb.-ft. of torque, using variable valve timing on both intake and exhaust. “The engine was hooked up to a Chrysler-engineered T355 five-speed manual transaxle and an optional CVT (continuously variable automatic transmission). A 2.0 liter diesel with a six-speed manual transaxle was sold outside North America.”-allpar.com

Patriot Replacement

Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Mehlville

We have been saying for some time now that the Jeep Patriot would be going away, along with the Jeep Compass and be replaced with a single model. We thought this was going to happen last year, but as it turns out, it is shaping up to be this year that this new replacement model will make its debut. Today we want to talk about what the Jeep Patriot replacement will probably look like.

A small collection of fully camouflaged new compact Jeep crossover vehicles being trailered about somewhere in Europe. Known internally as the C-SUV (compact SUV) and nicknamed the Compatriot by the Jeep cognoscenti, the as-yet-unnamed compact vehicle is slated to replace both the Jeep Patriot and Compass. Even the swirly camo pattern can’t disguise the Jeep-ness of these vehicles: See the shape of the wheel openings, the kicked-up body line in front of the C-pillar, and the baby version of the Grand Cherokee fascia. The finished appearance of the twin exhaust tips and the way they are integrated into the rear skid plate and cosmetic bodywork indicates that the vehicle is nearly ready for prime time. Which is good, since the current Compass and Patriot have been around so long that many people have probably forgotten that they are still available.

“One big point of contention in the current pair is their subpar interior layout and materials. While these images don’t reveal much in that regard, we are at least glad to see the easy-to-use corporate dials and buttons in their familiar positions. A typical FCA screen for access to Uconnect functions resides in the center of the dash, and USB and 12-volt power ports are clearly visible in the console.” -caranddriver.com

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.)

Goodbye Patriot, Hello Patriot?

Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Ellisville

We have heard for months that the Jeep Patriot would be merged with the Jeep Compass to make an awesome CUV mashup. We have gotten word about what this new model will look like, at it seems like it is going to resemble a baby Grand Cherokee. While you can still get the Jeep Patriot at All Star near Ellisville, we want to talk about what this new model might look like and feature.

Starting with the skin, it’s like Jeep’s designers scaled down the Grand Cherokee’s profile to fit on the new crossover’s stretched Renegade platform. The headlights, grille, and taillights looked like shrunken items from Jeep’s flagship crossover, too. This is good news – even after its 2011 facelift the Compass was a homely little thing, and the Patriot was boxy at a time when CUVs were going for smoother, more aerodynamic lines. Jeep’s new CUV is avoiding those mistakes by aping one of the company’s most popular designs.

Only the driver’s seat, steering wheel, and center stack appear in the interior images, so we can’t tell how the stretched chassis impacts rear-seat legroom compared to the Renegade/Fiat 500X. But in front, it looks like a Jeep – FCA’s corporate steering wheel and HVAC controls are present and accounted for, but the usual touchscreen display looks bigger the expected 8.4-inch unit. That could just be the camera angle playing tricks on our eyes. We can’t make any judgments about the material choices, but we’d expect quality to be on par with the larger Cherokee.

For more information on the existing Jeep Patriot or the new mash up model that is set to be released soon, head to All Star today. Their team would like to show you the great features of their new models!

What to Expect for the Patriot in 2017

Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Creve Coeur

We have known for some time that Jeep would be merging the Jeep Compass and the Jeep Patriot into one super Jeep model. What we have not been sure about is what this new merged model will look like. As spy shots have been becoming available, we are starting to get a better picture of what this new combination model will look like and offer; we want to share with you how we think things are shaping up.

The SUV, which retains the same shape as the prototypes our photographers captured testing earlier this year, borrows a sizable amount of styling cues from the larger, more expensive Jeep Grand Cherokee. Are we getting a new Jeep that is similar to the Grand Cherokee, just smaller?

“If the SUV’s badging is anything to go off of, Jeep will retain the Compass moniker for the upcoming vehicle. At the front, the SUV has a similar grille to the Grand Cherokee with seven rectangular openings, which are smaller than the ones found on the current compass, with chrome trim. The headlights and LED daytime lights are also similar to the ones on the Grand Cherokee.” -autoblog.com

The black roof, which is a new touch for Jeep, is a nod toward the SUV’s European competitors like the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. The new model loses the square-like taillights on the previous model for oval-shaped ones. Overall, the SUV adds modern touches to the aging Compass and Patriot models while staying true to Jeep’s iconic look.

While we still are not 100% sure on what to expect from this new model, we are sure that it will have everything that we expect from a Jeep combined with all of the finest features of the Jeep Compass and the Jeep Patriot.
