Jeep Patriot, presented in 2006 and produced till 2016, is a compact crossover SUV which is filling the gap between Jeep Cherokee and Compass. Patriot is a car for those who like the "Jeep" brand and want to have an SUV car, but are not really into offroad adventures.
Patriot has been build based on the Chrysler PM/MK platform (used also in Jeep Compass and Dodge Caliber - which is a compact car). When you look at the front of the car, you see big, rounded headlamps and a huge Jepp grille. Jeep Patriot was offered in 2 options: front-wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD): Freedom Drive II. Car was offered in both, gasoline and diesel engines. For the US market, there was 2.0L and 2.4L gasoline L4 engine. In Europe Patriot was offered with a 2.0L VW L4 diesel engine, which has been replaced in 2011 (after facelift) with a 2.2L MB diesel engine.
Jeep Patriot was offered in 3 different models: Sport, Latitude, and Limited. For EU there was also Sport Plus and Overland models. In 2011 there was a facelift of Patriot. The car received minor interior and exterior changes. In 2007 Patriot won "Green 4x4" Award and one year later "4x4 of the Year" in UK.
