Under the Patriot's Hood
If you correctly equip the 2017 Jeep Patriot for it then you will be able to haul up to 2,000 pounds worth of equipment behind the wonderful SUV. The vehicle's base engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder. This engine produces 158 horsepower and 141 lb-ft of torque. This particular engine comes standard with front-wheel drive. An alternative to this engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that produces 172 horsepower and 165 lb-ft of torque. This engine is required with all-wheel drive Patriots, but is available on Patriots with front-wheel drive. Both of these mentioned engines come with a five-speed manual transmission by default. However, the 2.0-liter engine offers a continuously variable transmission (CVT), while the 2.4-liter engine makes available a six-speed conventional automatic. The 2.4-liter engine can get you up to 23 miles per gallon (mpg) combined while the 2.0-liter engine produces up to 24 mpg combined. In Edmunds acceleration testing the Patriot, when equipped with the six-speed automatic transmission and Freedom Drive I, could speed up from zero to sixty miles per hour (mph) in 9.4 seconds. The SUV's gas tank holds up to 13.6 gallons of fuel.
