New 2016 Jeep Patriot at Central Ave Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM for Yonkers, NY
The 2016 Jeep Patriot is far newer, with superior packaging, but it's worth considering if cost conscious transportation is one of your top priorities. The Patriot lands in an intriguing middle ground between mainstream compact crossovers like the Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester, or Toyota RAV4, and some of the smaller models such as the Kia Soul, Honda HR-V, Nissan Juke, or Chevrolet Trax. Overall, the 2016 Patriot offers a sensibly sized package that combines macho Jeep lines with enough softness and civility to make it practical family transport.
Under the Patriot's Hood
The base engine for the Patriot is a 158-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder, while top Latitude models-and any version equipped with all-wheel drive-come standard with a 172-hp, 2.4-liter version. A five-speed manual gearbox is standard on the Sport, while the six-speed automatic is offered across the lineup and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is bundled with Freedom Drive II. The 2016 Jeep Patriot was made a much better vehicle a couple of years back.
Design of Jeep Patriot
The 2016 Jeep Patriot is a boxy, city-sized crossover that's thick in Jeep design heritage, borrowing some design cues from the Wrangler in front, as well as some of the slab-sided side styling of the old Cherokee and Wagoneer models. Up until now it's been the most traditional model in Jeep's lineup to some eyes, while others see it as more stylish-it's all in the eye of the beholder. Yet there's no denying that the boxy exterior creates lots of usable interior space. From the outside, there's a lot to like in the Patriot, with proportions and sheetmetal that are squared-off but not too refrigerator-like, as well as detailing that keeps it simple but purposeful. With details like the Jeep seven-slot grille and chunky door handles, there's just enough softness and civility blended in with the right amount of macho.
