About Jeep Patriot
After making its debut alongside the Jeep Compass in April 2006 at the New York Auto Show for the 2007 model year, the Jeep Patriot (MK74) is a front-engine, five-door compact crossover SUV that is manufactured and marketed by Jeep. Both automobiles, in addition to the Dodge Caliber, were built on the same GS platform; however, they were distinguished from one another both aesthetically and commercially, with the Patriot being the only vehicle to offer a four-wheel drive system that was marketed as Freedom Drive II.
Alongside the Compass, production of the Patriot took place at the assembly plant that Chrysler operates in Belvidere, Illinois. The production of the model came to an end with the 2017 model year, despite the fact that it continued to enjoy healthy sales despite remaining essentially unchanged as it entered its 11th model year.
In the United States, the Patriot is powered by either a 2.0-liter or 2.4-liter World gasoline inline-four engine. There is the option of either front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive for this vehicle. The Patriot comes equipped with not one but two different four-wheel drive systems, both of which are managed electronically. Freedom Drive I is the name given to the fundamental four-wheel drive system. This system is a full-time front-wheel-drive based 4WD/AWD system that is front-wheel-drive when it has traction, but it can automatically put up to 50% power to the rear wheels. Additionally, the ECC (Electronically controlled clutch located on the rear differential) can be locked in a 50–50 configuration below a certain speed. This “locking” is not a real lock; rather, it is just a request that the ECC be locked more than it is in the normal AWD mode.
In Europe and Australia, a Volkswagen-made 2.0-liter (1968-cc) diesel engine with 140 horsepower and a 6-speed manual transmission is installed. This engine has a displacement of 120 cid. All vehicles sold in the European Union (EU) come equipped with four-wheel drive as standard, as well as a version of the Freedom Drive System that is tuned differently than the version sold in the United States but has capabilities that are comparable to those of the FDII. These capabilities include brake traction control, as well as three selectable electronic stability control and traction control settings for use on or off-road.
