The Jeep Patriot is available in two trims, Sport and Latitude X, which have a standard 172-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and five-speed manual transmission; a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is optional. A 158-hp 2.0-litre engine, available with the CVT only, is available on the FWD Sport trim. The Patriot shares its small-SUV platform with the Jeep Compass but offers off-road capability its sibling doesn't. It is available in front-wheel drive or with a four-wheel-drive system that features a "lock" mode to enhance traction in inclement weather. The optional Freedom Drive Off-Road Group includes a continuously variable transaxle with a low range that engages when the off-road mode is activated. The package also features hill-descent control, brake lock differential, and an extra inch of ground clearance. Standard safety features include front and side-curtain air bags, anti-lock brakes, electronic stability program, and tire pressure monitoring. A power sunroof and a multimedia infotainment system with 30-gigabyte hard drive and navigation system are available. New-for-2011 Jeep Patriot exterior highlights include a new front fascia with standard fog lamps; a new rear fascia that extends lower than on previous models; a body-color grille; new available 17-inch wheels; four new colors and 4x4 ride height that has been increased by 1 inch. Interior upgrades for the 2011 Jeep Patriot include new soft touch front-door trim panels with a padded upper surface; new center armrest; a new Jeep steering wheel with integrated audio; new cloth interior; standard speed control on all models; and new backlighting of switches. The Jeep Patriot also boasts a retuned suspension for 2011, with higher spring and damping rates, added rebound springs, and an increased diameter of the rear sway bar.
