As you may know, this manufacturer presented a new five-year plan some time ago, are there is no Patriot there, which indicates that 2017 Jeep Patriot will probably be the last version of this compact crossover. This model came in 2006. So far, we saw only one big update in 2011, and it this state will probably remain. Company plans to introduce new model, which will come as replacement both for Patriot and Compass. New model will be presented this spring, but surely won’t enter serial production so soon. So, we will see this crossover next year too. Since it will be the last year of production, 2017 Jeep Patriot probably won’t feature some bigger changes.
2017 Jeep Patriot specs
As we already mentioned, 2017 Jeep Patriot will be probably the last version. Because of that, some bigger modifications are not expected. This model has been update only once so far. That was in 2011, and it is expected that 2017 Patriot will come with the pretty much same characteristics. It will ride on the same PM/MK platform, which is pretty much outdated in many aspects. Visual appearance will also remain pretty much the same. We will see recognizable Jeeps look. Interior will also remain unchanged. We will see the same design of cabin. On the other side, we could see some changes when it comes to standard features. Since it will be the last year of production, each trim could come with some new standard features offered. Trim levels will remain the same. Those are Sport, Latitude and Limited.
2017 Jeep Patriot engines
Changes under the hood are not expected also. We will see same units in offer. Base engine is 2.0 liter inline-four, which is good for 158 horsepower and 141 pound-feet of torque. Optional engine is 2.4 liter inline-four unit, which has max output 172 hp and 165 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are paired with 6-speed automatic transmission.
2017 Jeep Patriot release date, price, replacement

Company already prepares a new model, which will come as replacement not only for this, but also for another model called Compass. New model will be presented this spring, while serial production is planned for late 2017.
