New 2017 Jeep Patriot at East Hills Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM for Greenvale, NY
The Jeep Patriot line has long been a favorite SUV amidst a sea of contenders and is appreciated for its dependability, stylish flourishes, and its capability on the trails. This is an attractively-priced entry into the field, especially when considering the much more expensive large SUV vehicles in the market. Most Patriot owners need something better to go out into the wild with, not a giant house-like box that wastes gas, but also not an incapable subcompact meant for flat commuting on pavement either. The 2017 model is quite similar to the 2016 model, and that can happen for the excellent reason that most owners don't really want changes-it works great for them as is!

Under the Patriot's Hood
When the 2017 Jeep Patriot is properly set-up it can achieve a towing maximum of 2,000 pounds. The Trailer Tow Prep Group can be added on, which features hill descent control and hill start assist. The 2017 Jeep Patriot is driven by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which sees 158 horsepower and 141 lb-ft of torque. There is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder available that awakens the Patriot to the tune of 172 horsepower and 165 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive is available with both of these engines, while the 2.4-liter engine can be combined with two different all-wheel drive systems (the Freedom Drive I and Freedom Drive II). Linked to either engine, if you don't specify otherwise, is a five-speed manual transmission. The 2.0-liter can add a continuously variable transmission (CVT), and the 2.4-liter engine really shines if put with a highly-recommended six-speed conventional automatic transmission. This is a vehicle where you really hear the engine in there and can learn to adjust with that as your cue out on bumpy roads, steep ascents and in snowy conditions.
Design of Jeep Patriot
The 2017 Jeep Patriot has seating for five and it can be brought home in two main trims (Sport or Latitude), or 3 other offshoot trims, totaling 5 trims in all. The first trim level is the Sport and has 2 versions: either the Sport SE or the 75th Anniversary Edition trim. The second main trim is the Latitude and has 1 offshoot version: the High Altitude Edition trim, with chrome exterior accents, unique seventeen-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, and a sunroof. Some of the features seen in the Sport trim include Bluetooth connectivity, roof rails (super-helpful!), and even satellite radio. The Sport SE package adds a leather-wrapped steering wheel and heated front seats, while the 75th Anniversary package will also let light in with a sunroof, a remote engine start which is good when it's cold outside, and bronze exterior accenting. Or you can combine your features together piece by piece, as many Jeep customers do, and really maximize the value to yourself directly.

This would be an excellent vehicle to use to share the knowledge of a more experienced off-roader with someone new to it, as it has the old feel of true off-roading and capability, and less of the frills and distractions of so many vehicles today. The front-wheel drive 2017 Jeep Patriot has antilock brakes for the front discs (rear drums), and the all-wheel drive option has as standard 4-wheel ABS on the four disc brakes. Standard as well is traction and stability control, and also full-length side curtain airbags and front side airbags. It couldn't hurt to have a backup camera, so those users who don't want to back into a mailbox (or worse) should opt for the infotainment system to get that feature included. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the 2017 Jeep Patriot its highest possible "Good" rating for its performance in roof strength, head restraint (or whiplash protection), side-impact and moderate overlap front-impact tests.
