September 1, 2009 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Jeep® Patriot is a tremendous value, combining the packaging, safety
features and interior flexibility of a sport-utility vehicle (SUV) with performance, handling, and 29-mpg highway fuel
economy. With its combination of fun, freedom, utility and best-in-class Jeep 4x4 capability, the 2010 Jeep Patriot
sets apart from the competition.
Innovative technology affords Jeep Patriot more capability than any other vehicle in its class. Jeep Patriot is available
in three drive configurations: front-wheel drive, Freedom Drive I™ (a full-time, active four-wheel-drive system with lock
mode) and Freedom Drive II™ Off-Road Package (a full-time, active 4x4 system with best-in-class 19:1 Low Ratio that
provides true Jeep 4x4 Trail Rated® capability).
The Trail Rated Jeep Patriot equipped with Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package sits one inch higher than non-Trail
Rated versions and meets Jeep off-road capability requirements for traction, water fording, articulation,
maneuverability and ground clearance. The Off-Road Package’s 17-inch wheels contribute to the Trail Rated
Patriot’s 9 inches of ground clearance, 29.6-degree approach angle, 34.2-degree departure angle and 23.3-degree
breakover angle. In addition, Trail Rated models have additional body sealing and high-mounted drivetrain vents in
order to support 19-inch water-fording capability.
The Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package utilizes a second-generation Continuously Variable Transaxle with a low
ratio (CVT2L) to maximize off-road capability. In addition, 17-inch all-terrain tires, a full-size spare tire, skid plates, tow
hooks and fog lamps separate Trail Rated Jeep Patriots from all other compact SUVs.
Jeep Patriot is designed for customers who want four-wheel-drive capability or the year-round versatility of frontwheel drive, excellent fuel economy and an attractive price point. With modern interior and classic Jeep exterior
styling, including traditional round Jeep headlamps, seven-slot grille, muscular body-side flares, and strong
stance—the 2010 Jeep Patriot broadens the classic Jeep design appeal to new customers.
Rugged, classic Jeep® styling at an affordable entry-level price
Immediately recognizable as a Jeep vehicle, Patriot expands the brand by providing an entry-level price
