Classic Jeep® brand styling steps up to merge with very modern creature comforts and technologies to make the 2010 Jeep Patriot one of the best 4WD values on the road today. Hailed as the most fuelefficient 4×4 in its class, Patriot is also one of the least expensive SUVs out there to own. With an available powertrain born of legendary capability, Patriot can shuttle you from busy urban streets to scenic wooded trails and beyond with authentic ease. Jeep brand prowess is paired with a very long list of standard and available premium features. Choose from two Patriot models, the playful Sport or the well-appointed Limited.
You can outfit Patriot with innovative features like a Media Center 730N radio with GPS navigation, SIRIUS® Satellite Radio, power sunroof, or Freedom-Drive II active full-time four-wheel-drive, to name just a few. Head out with purpose, and build from there. This is how you enjoy living the Jeep life and everything it has to offer, don’t wait anymore, and visit your top Orlando Jeep Dealer.
With the 2010 Jeep® Patriot, you’re going places. Should your travels require navigation through severe conditions such as deeper snow and sand, go with the available Freedom-Drive I active full-time 4WD with LOCK Mode and an available CVT automotive transaxle with AutoStick® shifter with six distinct “speeds.” AutoStick allows the driver to maximize engine braking, control upshifts, downshifts, and optimize overall performance and control.
Patriot’s available Trail Rated® Freedom-Drive II Off-Road Group helps earn Patriot the nod for best-in-class off-road capability. It’s due to the group’s active, full-time 4WD with LOCK Mode, Hill Descent Control (HDC) with grade sensing and Hill Start Assist (standard on Freedom-Drive II 4WD as well as manual transmission equipped models), skid plates, tow hooks, increased ground clearance, all-terrain tires, heavy-duty cooling and alternator, and driver-seat height adjuster matched to a Continuously Variable Automatic Transaxle (CVT2L) with 19:1 crawl ratio.
Four-wheel independent “touring tuned” suspension improves on-road handling and cornering yet provides a smooth ride. A brawny yet efficient 2.4L dual VVT engine achieves best-in-class 4WD EPA estimated 28 highway mpg,(2) while delivering 172 hp and 165 lb-ft of torque. Patriot’s 2.0L four-cylinder engine cranks out a healthy 158 hp and 141 lb-ft of torque and delivers up to 29 EPA estimated highway mpg.
Jeep® Patriot received the highest marks — Five Stars — during side crash tests performed as part of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s SaferCar.gov program. This means you can head out with confidence, knowing you’re outfitted with a comprehensive set of safety and security features. Patriot’s air bag system includes a front and rear side-curtain and advanced multistage driver and front passenger air bags. Front seat active head restraints move forward and upward in the event of a rear-end collision to decrease the space between the headrest and occupant’s head, thereby helping to reduce the chance of injury — a new and standard safety feature.
The standard Electronic Stability Control (ESC) integrates a host of systems that includes a four-wheel antilock brake system (ABS), all-speed traction control, a Brake Assist system that automatically helps provide strong braking power in emergency situations, Electronic Roll Mitigation (ERM) that can apply strategic, appropriate braking and reduce engine power when overly sharp steering actions and/or impending wheel lift is detected, Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), Hill Start Assist and available Hill Descent Control (HDC).
Patriot’s safety cage structure contains a front crumple zone that absorbs energy during a frontal impact and a high-strength crossbeam under the rear seat area that helps transfer side-impact energy from one side to the other. Plus, a standard Sentry Key® Antitheft Engine Immobilizer makes it virtually impossible to drive without a valid key.
The standard and available creature comforts found on the 2010 Jeep® Patriot can soothe any savage beast. The standard illuminated cup holders situated in the full-length center console give off a happy glow during nighttime driving. The standard 12-volt power outlet satisfies your power-hungry take-alongs, including laptops and hand-held electronic toys. An enviable 368-watt, 9-speaker Premium Sound System with flip-down liftgate speakers and a power sunroof is available as part of the Sun and Sound Group.
Patriot Limited’s standard interior reveals premium leather trim throughout with standard power and heated front seats, a leather-wrapped parking brake and steering wheel with audio and speed controls. Limited entertains and informs with a standard Media Center 230 6CD/DVD/MP3 radio support multimedia radio (available on Sport), available features like SIRIUS® Satellite Radio with a one-year subscription, and an iPod® control that allows you to hook up your iPod® and access its controls through the touch-screen radio.
