There’s a Freedom Drive II package for buyers who take their Patriot offroad. It includes higher ground clearance, hill descent control, skid plates, tow hooks, and unfortunately the CVT, whose uncouth demeanor makes the Patriot less drivable on the road. It feels like a big rubber band, the fat Achilles heel of many CVTs.
The good news is that the available 6-speed automatic transmission works exceptionally well on the highway.
The Patriot is boxy, trim and bold.
Even in the range-topping High Altitude with all the interior features including leather upholstery, the Patriot cabin feels like it’s about durability, not luxury.
The interior is useful, with rear seatbacks that easily flip forward to yield good cargo space. There’s decent room in front, but not much rear space for passengers to stretch out. Climbing in and out is very easy thanks to the high roof that also gives ample headroom front and rear. But there’s a boxed-in feeling, because the seating position is low, the dash high, and roof pillars thick.
It’s all about the price with the Patriot. We can’t say it does much of anything better than its more modern competitors, but if you can get one for thousands of dollars less, it might work just fine for you. However if you go with the 2.4-liter engine and 6-speed automatic transmission, as you should, it might wipe out the price advantage.
