'08 Jeep Patriot

The 2008 model of the Jeep Patriot is an affordable and compact SUV. It is more suitable for its off-road drive than the highway. The biggest plus point is that it can be used as both a daily driving machine and an off-road SUV.

Like a typical Jeep, the 2008 Jeep Patriot has a 5-wheel manual transmission. It comes in two models: Limited and Sports. The base model doesn’t incorporate adjustable seats and memory mirrors, so the prices are lower.

The 2008 Jeep Patriot scores high on the safety standards. It has hydraulic brake assist, anti-lock disc brakes for four-wheels and traction control. The Electronic Stability Program is incorporated to deal with the slippery surfaces.

It is designed in a cage-like structure with knee bolsters, beams on side doors and supplemental air bags on the side. The beams help in transferring the shock from one side to the other in case of accidents.

'07 Jeep Patriot

Jeep launched Patriot in 2007, which is not completely an off-road vehicle. It’s a compact SUV with two wheel drive. In conditions of the front wheel slipping, the rear wheels are engaged. Patriot 2007 comes with a 2.4 liter 172 hp engine.

The 2007 Jeep Patriot boasts of 17 inch alloy wheels with skid plates. Just like Liberty, the Patriot has hill descent brakes and anti-lock brakes.

The interiors are especially well appointed. It has optional Freedom-I and Freedom II drive which includes all four-wheel drive. The former is for the low traction conditions, like rough weather. The latter is for off-road driving like ascending a stony path or hill climbing.

These features make the 2007 Jeep Patriot a more reliable and fun to drive SUV. It is easy to be driven in snowy road conditions thanks to its lockable central differential.
