The Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package includes a second-generation continuously variable transaxle wîth low range (CVT2L) that engages when the off-road mode is activated, 19:1 crawl ratio, 17-inch all-terrain tires and aluminum wheels, a full-size spare tire, skid plates, tow hooks, fog lamps and manual seat height adjuster.

The Jeep Patriot features a standard 2.0-liter World Engine for the 2012 Patriot Sport and Latitude models that provides 158 horsepower (117 kW) and 141 lb.-ft.
