2014 Jeep Patriot is Perfect for Off-Road

2014 Jeep Patriot

The Jeep Patriot is known for being a compact SUV featuring classic Jeep styling in an affordable package. While it will spend most of its life on city streets, the Patriot includes components that provide it with off-road capability incomparable by other vehicles in its class. Available at a Jeep dealer in Henderson, the Patriot shares its small-SUV platform with the Jeep Compass, but provides off-road capability that its sibling does not. The Patriot is offered in either front-wheel drive or with a four-wheel drive system that features a “lock” mode to enhance traction during inclement weather.

The 2014 Jeep Patriot is a compact crossover SUV that seats five people. It is available in Sport, Latitude and Limited trim levels. All-wheel-drive models, regardless of trim, can be equipped with the Freedom-Drive II Off-Road Group. This includes an enhanced four-wheel-drive system, all-terrain tires, a full-size spare tire, hill descent control, tow hooks, skid plates and, on the Sport, a height-adjustable driver seat.

When equipped with standard front-wheel drive, the 2014 Jeep Patriot Sport and Latitude are powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 158 horsepower and 141 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is standard and a six-speed automatic is optional. EPA-estimated fuel economy with front-wheel drive and the six-speed automatic is 21 mpg city, 28 mpg highway and 24 mpg combined. The manual version does slightly better with mpg ratings of 23 mpg city, 28 mpg highway and 25 mpg combined.

Optional on the front-drive Sport and Latitude is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that produces 172 hp and 165 lb-ft of torque. This engine is standard on all-wheel-drive models and all Patriot Limited models. You can choose between the five-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmission.

As for safety, every 2014 Jeep Patriot comes standard with antilock brakes traction and stability control, and full-length side curtain airbags. The Limited gets rear disc brakes. Front side airbags are now standard across all Patriot trim levels.

New features for the 2014 Jeep Patriot include a new six-speed PowerTech automatic transmission is offered, and front seat-mounted side airbags are now standard on all models, enhancing safety. Visit Chapman Jeep for more information.
