2018 Jeep Patriot Design, Specs and Images – Anxious to bring a level of off-road capability to every SUV slot, Jeep will fill the razor space between the Renegade and the Cherokee with a replacement for its compact Compass and Patriot crossovers.
Probably based on a stretched version of the Renegade platform, the SUV that we hope will be called Patriot will make a direct battle with the Honda C-CR-V and Toyota RAV4, somewhat smaller and slightly cheaper crosses Than the Cherokee. Expect the Patriot to have a little less off-road capability and a little more efficient than the surprisingly capable (and heavy) Cherokee.
2018 Jeep Patriot Design
Unlike the style we can see on the exciting patriotic model, replacements for the 2018 Jeep Patriot will lose their appearance for more modern design signs and closer to Grand Cherokee. Indeed, the new Compass model looks like a smaller Grand Cherokee but also shares many similarities with the Renegade, which is a good thing if you want our opinion.
The replacement of the Patriot is equipped with Jeep’s seven-slot grille that resides in well-accentuated headlights. The profile side has trapezoidal wing flares and a pronounced belt line. The rear is also more sculpted and there are also new taillights. On the other hand, which is also important to mention, this new model is based on the “small-wide” unibody platform. This uniquely lightweight structure was made of high strength steel of 65 percent.
2018 Jeep Patriot Inside
Inside, the model also brings a more modern design and the latest technology. The quality of the materials is better as well as comfort. The Uconnect infotainment system will also be there. The system supports Android Auto and Apple Car Play features and different screen sizes. Available will be 5-inch, 7-inch and 8.4-inch touch screens depending on the trim level. The dashboard will also be available with a 3.5-inch information display or a 7-inch digital cluster.

The new model, however, is available in four versions including Sport, Latitude, Limited and Trailhawk. The Trailhawk will get a unique style with an anti-reflective sticker and of course, off-road features such as suspended suspension, hill descent control, improved approach and start angles, Select- Ground, etc.
2018 Jeep Patriot Engine
Underhood, Jeep will likely buy a 2.0L Tigershark I-4 in the ComPatriot, with an I-4 turbocharged similar size (in Hurricane code form) available as an option. This engine should produce a prodigious power of more than 200, with all the torque at low end, a small turbo lets. The standard Tigershark, if offered in the ComPatriot, should produce in the vicinity of 160 horses and provide an mpg of 30 acres on the highway.
Jeep was recently launched with its real SUVs and SUV-ish crossovers, which offered a great deal of off-road features, classic Jeep style and road refinement.
Release date Price
The new value-based model that replaced the Compass and the Jeep Patriot is expected to be posted at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show in January. The prize will start from about $ 21,000.
