This is paired with a standard five-speed manual transmission that can be traded out for an automatic transmission. The other engine option is a 2.4-liter I-4 engine that comes with a continuously-variable transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission. This second engine option provides 172 horsepower. The Patriot has three different available drivetrain configurations: the standard front-wheel drive, available Freedom Drive I, or the Trail Rated Freedom Drive II 4x4 systems. On the interior, you'll find a variety of high-tech convenience features and more than 30 available safety an security features. Folding rear seats allow for extra cargo space, and a first-row LCD touch screen make it easy to enjoy the modern comforts of the 2017 Jeep Patriot.
