Under the Patriot's Hood
The engines can change from the standard manual one to an automatic if you so desire. The Freedom Drive II option is the only exception to this because it contains a special automatic transmission with low range gears. The base model engine is the Sport which is a 2.0 four cylinder with 158 horsepower and 141 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2.4-liter engine is next up which also is four cylinders giving you 172 horsepower and 165 lb.-ft. of torque. Fuel efficiency is very good: The 2.4-liter engine with front wheel drive gets 28 miles per gallon on the highway with the automatic transmission and the manual transmission gets you 29 miles per gallon on the highway. The 2.0-liter automatic gets 26 miles per gallon on the highway, the 2.0-liter manual gets 30 miles per gallon on the highway. Adding the Freedom Drive options also increases efficiencies both in city and highway driving.
Design of Jeep Patriot
