What's New on the 2016 Patriot?

 

 

 

The Jeep Patriot has been around since 2007, but the engineers have done a commendable job of keeping the compact crossover SUV new and fresh. That's the case for the 2016 model, as the Jeep will include a variety of new features and capabilities (and we're not just talking about the addition of the Bluetooth phone connectivity).

The brand dropped the top-line Limited trim for the 2016 model year, leaving only the base Sport model and the fully-equipped Latitude as the two options. The Sport model includes the impressive 2.0-liter DOHC I4 engine, which is coupled with the five-speed manual transmission. The unit can produce 158 horsepower and 141 pounds-feet of torque, and it also delivers an incredible 30 highway mile per gallon fuel efficiency (quite the spec considering the size of the vehicle). The trim also offers 60/40 rear folding seats, resulting in a much-appreciated 53.5-cubic-feet of cargo volume. The Electronic Stability Control will keep your vehicle's occupants protected and secure, as the various security features (like Electronic Roll Mitigation and Hill Start Assist) ensure safety. Finally, the occupants will appreciate the SiriusXM Satellite Radio, providing the occupants with over 100 contrasting channels.

Alternatively, you could opt for the Sport SE package, which adds several style elements to your new Patriot. On the exterior, the mineral gray accents (featured on the badging/decals, step pad, roof rails, and hood) will set your Jeep apart. Meanwhile, the 17-inch mineral gray aluminum wheels will keep your SUV looking sharp. Head to the inside and you'll find heated sport mesh front seats, and the leather-wrapped steering wheel truly adds some elegance to the interior.

The Latitude trim adds even more options. The Automatic Temperature Control will be appreciated during those sticky summer days, and the power windows (with Driver One-Touch Down capabilities) will provide you with all the fresh air you need. Meanwhile, the five-spoke 17-inch aluminum wheels won't only turn heads, but it will also improve the already-incredible off-roading capabilities. Finally, the heated premium cloth seats will make your ride more comfortable while also adding an air of luxury.

 

What Makes the Patriot Such a Good Buy?

 

 

 

You'd be hard pressed to find a new sedan for $17,595, much less a rugged and durable SUV. The price tag on the Jeep Patriot is incredible, especially when you consider all the vehicle has to offer.

It starts with the vehicle's driving ability. With the Trail Rated badge, you can expect the Patriot to travel on any kind of terrain. With a combination of "legendary traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and water fording abilities," you can expect your new SUV to accompany you on any adventure.

Of course, the engines also play a role in those capabilities. We've already touched on the 2.0-liter unit, but Jeep also offers a 2.4-liter World Engine. The system can pump out 172 horsepower and 165 pounds-feet of torque, and you can expect to receive up to a 28 highway mile per gallon fuel efficiency. Combine all these factors together, and the Patriot can deliver a phenomenal 2,000-pound towing capacity.

Several exterior features won't necessarily impact the vehicle's drivability, but they'll certainly assist in making for a much easier ride. The halogen headlamps and fog lamps will be useful on a paved road or in the woods, as the additional light will surely be appreciated. Meanwhile, the roof rails will allow you to bring along any bikes or surfboards.

The interior? Well, you'll be quite impressed with everything the Jeep has to offer. There are a variety of ways to make your Patriot more luxurious, including McKinley leather trim seats. The Automatic Temperature Control means each of your passengers will be comfortable and cozy, and the heated front seats will keep you and your front passenger staying warm during the winter.

The Radio 430 NAV system provides you with plenty of entertainment and information via the high-resolution 6.5-inch touchscreen. The Sirius XM Satellite Radio provides more than 100 channels, meaning you'll never struggle to find something to listen to. The Garmin Navigation System will ensure that you'll never get lost, as the turn-by-turn directions will guide you to your destination. Best of all, you don't even have to take your eyes off the road to access any of these applications, as the steering wheel-mounted controls allow you to stay focused on what matter.

Perhaps most importantly, the Patriot provides several notable safety features, and this goes beyond the six airbags and the included crush zones (which help absorb the majority of the energy from a potential accident). The Electronic Stability Control will keep your new Jeep on its intended path, while the Brake Assist System will provide you with some added protection in the event that you need to slam on your brakes.
