2009 Jeep Patriot

2009 Jeep® Patriot Continues to Deliver Best-in-class Capability

2009 Jeep Patriot
The Jeep® brand continues its expansion with the 2009 Jeep Patriot's combination of fun, freedom, utility and best-in-class Jeep 4x4 capability.
The 2009 Jeep Patriot combines the packaging and interior flexibility of a sport-utility vehicle with the performance, handling, fuel economy and price of a compact car or small pickup. Safety features, such as standard side-curtain air bags and standard Electronic Stability Program (ESP), add to Jeep Patriot's tremendous value.

The all-new instrument panel features a smoother look while chrome accents brighten the new round heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) vents, shift bezel, door spears and cluster rings. The all-new center console and door trim panels feature padded armrests for added comfort. New LED-illuminated cup holders make it easier to place beverages in the right spot at night.

2009 Jeep Patriot
To reduce noise and give the 2009 Jeep Patriot a quieter ride, engine compartment and interior floor insulation has been added. Tuning improvements to the engine exhaust also have been made.


Suspension tuning for on-road packages has been revised, giving the 2009 Jeep Patriot a more comfortable, smoother ride.

2009 Jeep Patriot
Innovative technology affords Jeep Patriot more capability than any other vehicle in its class. Jeep Patriot is available in three drive configurations: front-wheel drive, Freedom Drive I™ (a full-time, active four-wheel-drive system with lock mode) and the Freedom Drive II™ Off-Road Package (a full-time, active 4x4 system with low range that provides true Jeep 4x4 Trail Rated® capability).


Freedom Drive I features a lockable center coupling, which gives Jeep Patriot drivers the ability to handle rough weather conditions and low-traction surfaces. The Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package is an available four-wheel-drive system that makes the 2009 Jeep Patriot a Trail Rated 4x4, creating the most capable vehicle in the crowded compact SÚV class. The Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package includes a second-generation Continuously Variable Transaxle with low ratio (CVT2L), 17-inch all-terrain outlined white letter (OWL) tires (Limited models only) and aluminum wheels, a full-size spare tire, skid plates, tow hooks, fog lamps (Sport 'E' only), trailer tow wiring harness and manual seat height adjuster (Sport 'E' only). The available Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package is recommended for off-road situations that include grades, occasional wheel lift and moderate rock or log climbing.

The Trail Rated Jeep Patriot sits one inch higher than non-Trail Rated versions and meets Jeep off-road capability requirements for traction, water fording, articulation, maneuverability and ground clearance. The Off-Road Package's 17-inch wheels and OWL tires contribute to the Trail Rated Patriot's 9 inches of ground clearance, 29.6-degree approach angle, 34.2-degree departure angle and 23.3-degree breakover angle. Trail Rated Jeep Patriot models also have additional body sealing and high-mounted drivetrain vents to support 19-inch water fording capability. The Jeep Patriot's body and chassis were developed and tested over numerous rugged off-road terrains to meet the requirements of the Jeep enthusiast.

All 2009 Jeep Patriot models include standard brake traction control, driver-controlled three-mode ESP, Brake Assist, Electronic Roll Mitigation (ERM) and Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) with rough-road detection.

DESIGN
Strong and capable, the 2009 Jeep® Patriot is unmistakably Jeep, designed to appeal to compact SÚV buyers who want classic Jeep styling with best-in-class off-road capability. Jeep Patriot is rugged, exuding the brand's key attributes of mastery, authenticity, freedom and adventure, while offering excellent fuel economy, interior flexibility and utility at a great value.

For 2009, Jeep Patriot features an all-new redesigned instrument panel, center console with split lid for added storage space and door trim panels. The all-new instrument panel features a smoother look while chrome accents brighten the new round heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) vents, shift bezel, door spears and cluster rings. The all-new center console and door trim panels feature padded armrests for added comfort. New LED-illuminated cup holders make it easier to place beverages in the right spot at night.

On the outside, the 2009 Jeep Patriot's two-box design is built for maximum cargo volume, rugged driving conditions and excellent utility. Patriot's face is classic Jeep, featuring the brand's signature seven-slot grille, a clamshell hood, a robust bumper and round headlamps. The body-color fascia is neatly integrated with the grille for a high-quality appearance. Limited models add a bright fascia overlay.

Fascia-mounted round fog lamps (available on Patriot Sport models and standard on Patriot Limited models) improve visibility in bad weather. A separate park and turn signal lamp wraps around the corner of the Patriot's body. With their simple round and rectangular geometric shapes, these features are timeless and functional.

A stiff windshield and upright backlight combine to create Patriot's easily identifiable side view. A black roof molding channels water over the Patriot's roof and provides a smooth fit and finish. Patriot also features standard side roof rails with available cross bars for carrying extra gear. The rack is black on Patriot Sport models and bright on Limited models. Jeep Patriot Limited models feature a bright body-color bodyside molding. Additional Jeep design cues that complement the classic boxy side view include trapezoidal wheel openings and available all-terrain tires. Jeep Patriot's high beltline completes the vehicle's protective side profile.

From the rear, the Jeep Patriot features an upright backlight and a bold bumper. Integrated into the liftgate header is a six light-emitting diode (LED) center high-mounted stop lamp (CHMSL) and washer nozzle. Patriot's modular taillamps are tall and set at far corners of the vehicle in classic Jeep style for improved visibility. The Patriot name is inscribed in the rear fascia and is complemented by a Jeep badge that is located on the light bar in the center of the vehicle. A black step pad with a non-skid surface enhances the functionality customers expect from Jeep. Four doors and a rear liftgate provide easy access to this compact SÚV's spacious and functional interior.

Exterior design elements on Jeep Patriot models equipped with the Freedom Drive IITM Off-Road Package include tow hooks and skid plates, necessary for off-roading. Two tow hooks are securely mounted in the front, and one tow hook is securely mounted to the left side of the rear fascia.

The 2009 Jeep Patriot rides on a 103.7-inch wheelbase with a 59.8-inch wide track. The wheel placement enhances vehicle stability, vehicle dynamics and ride quality. Large wheel openings accommodate 16-inch steel wheels with all-season touring tires or available 17-inch aluminum wheels and OWL all-terrain tires housed inside signature Jeep trapezoidal wheel openings. Patriot's large wheels, 27- to 28-inch outer diameter tires and suspension design contribute to 9 inches of ground clearance on Trail Rated® models equipped with the Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package. The low-profile design of the rear suspension also maximizes rear seat and cargo room.

ENGINEERING
To reduce noise and give the 2009 Jeep® Patriot a quieter ride, engine compartment and interior floor insulation has been added. Tuning improvements to the engine exhaust also have been made.

Suspension tuning for on-road packages has been revised, giving the 2009 Jeep Patriot a more comfortable, smoother ride.

Powertrain
The 2009 Jeep Patriot's powertrain delivers world-class performance, fuel economy and refinement. Patriot features a standard 2.4-liter World Engine with dual Variable Valve Timing (VVT), which helps optimize the torque curve at all speeds. Patriot's World Engine produces more power, better fuel economy and a smoother, quieter ride than engines without dual VVT. Dual VVT is a technology typically not available on vehicles sold in the Únited States in Patriot's price class. The 2.4-liter engine, coupled with a five-speed manual transaxle, provides 172 horsepower (128 kW) and 165 lb.-ft. (222 N•m) of torque and delivers 23 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. A 2.0-liter four-cylinder World Engine also is available on front-wheel-drive Jeep Patriot Sport models and achieves 23 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.

The 2009 Jeep Patriot features a standard five-speed manual transaxle and an available Continuously Variable Transaxle (CVT2). CVT2 is a second-generation CVT that Chrysler LLC engineers calibrated for pleasing engine response and precise ratio control. CVT2 contributes to a fuel economy improvement of 6 to 8 percent compared with a traditional four-speed automatic transaxle. Patriot also is the first Jeep vehicle to offer a CVT2 with integral low-ratio (CVT2L). The CVT2L's effective first gear in low ratio is 19:1, which provides the torque necessary for crawling over moderate rocks and logs and other off-road events.

4x4 Systems
The 2009 Jeep Patriot is available in three drivetrain configurations: the standard front-wheel-drive system, which provides excellent ride and handling combined with best-in-class fuel efficiency, the Freedom Drive I 4x4 system and the Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package.

Freedom Drive I is an available full-time, active 4x4 system with Lock mode designed to give drivers year-round assurance for the ability to handle rough weather and low-traction conditions. This active four-wheel-drive system is recommended for daily use, including slick conditions that come with rain and light snow. Freedom Drive I features a lockable center coupling, giving drivers the ability to put Jeep Patriot in four-wheel-drive Lock mode to handle deep snow, sand and other low-traction surfaces.

To activate the Jeep Patriot's Freedom Drive I Lock mode, the driver pulls up on the chrome T-handle. This Lock mode ensures that the Electronically Controlled Coupling (ECC) sends the maximum amount of torque to the rear axle (up to 60 percent) for improved traction.

The Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package is an available four-wheel-drive system that makes the Jeep Patriot a Trail Rated® 4x4, creating the most capable vehicle in the crowded compact SÚV class. The Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package includes CVT2L, 17-inch all-terrain OWL tires (Limited only), a full-size spare tire, skid plates, tow hooks, fog lamps, trailer tow wiring harness, engine oil cooler and manual driver seat height adjuster (Sport E only).

The Jeep Patriot's Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package is available on both Sport and Limited models. This Jeep technology includes the CVT2L's best-in-class 19:1 low ratio, which is ideal for crawling over obstacles. Off-road Brake Traction Control maintains forward movement during heavy articulation or on split-friction surfaces where one wheel loses traction. Hill Descent Control modulates hydraulic brake pressure without driver intervention, providing downhill assistance at a safe and controlled rate of speed. Brake lock differentials improve the Patriot's mobility by applying brake force to the driven wheel that is spinning faster than the mate on the same axle. This provides an equal amount of torque for each wheel, thereby providing torque to the wheel with the most traction. This helps when crawling over obstacles, during heavy articulation activity, or when the driver encounters split-friction surfaces or off-road driving conditions.

Trail Rated Jeep Patriot models also include a heavy-duty cooling module, a full-size spare tire, skid plates (which protect critical components like the engine, transaxle or fuel tank during off-road driving) and tow hooks designed to get even the best off-roaders out of a tight spot. Standard three-mode ESP and off-road ABS also add to the Patriot's inherent off-road capability.

Drivers can select four-wheel Lock mode on Jeep Patriot models with the Freedom Drive I and the Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package by pulling up once on the T-shaped off-road handle in the center console. Once the off-road handle is pulled, an amber '4WD Lock' message in the instrument cluster lights up to confirm the system is on.

When in Off-road Mode with the 4WD Lock engaged and the shifter in the 'L' or low ratio position, the following conditions are engaged automatically for optimal capability and performance on Jeep Patriot Trail Rated® models equipped with the Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package:

• CVT2L provides an overall first gear ratio of 19:1 for crawling over obstacles until the vehicle approaches a speed of 10 mph or more, when it ratios up to maintain speed

• Engine/transaxle calibration is optimized for off-road driving

• Off-road ABS calibration is activated (as on non-Trail Rated vehicles)

• Traction Control reverts to brake lock differentials to help maintain forward mobility during heavy articulation or on split-friction surfaces when one wheel loses traction

• Hill Descent Control modulates the brake hydraulic pressure without driver intervention to provide downhill assistance at a safe and controlled rate of speed. This feature uses grade-sensing logic to determine if the vehicle is descending a hill or traveling on level ground

• A green icon showing a vehicle descending a hill appears in the instrument cluster when the Off-road Mode is activated and CVT2L is in Low or Reverse

TRAIL RATED
Jeep® Patriot Trail Rated models are designed and tested to perform in a variety of off-road conditions defined by five key consumer-oriented performance categories. These include traction, ground clearance, articulation, maneuverability and water fording, as well as measurements that demonstrate the engine and transaxle continue to self-lubricate while the vehicle is traveling on a side slope or on a fore/aft grade. The testing for these performance criteria is performed through a combination of physical testing and virtual modeling.

Trail Rated Jeep Patriot models sit 1 inch higher than non-Trail Rated versions and meet Jeep off-road capability requirements for traction, ground clearance, articulation, maneuverability and water fording. Jeep Patriot features standard 16-inch styled steel wheels and all-season tires. Available 17-inch wheels and OWL tires contribute to the Trail Rated Patriot's 9 inches of ground clearance, 29.6-degree approach angle, 34.2-degree departure angle and 23.3-degree breakover angle. Trail Rated Jeep Patriot models also have additional body sealing and high-mounted drivetrain vents to support 19-inch water fording capability. The Jeep Patriot's body and chassis were developed and tested over numerous rugged off-road terrains to meet the requirements of the Jeep enthusiast. The Trail Rated badge communicates to the customer that Jeep Patriot 4x4 with the Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package delivers authentic 4x4 capability.
