2018 Jeep Patriot Replacement Specs, Release Date, Price, Changes
General Motors and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) have tight battle. It seems hard for us to put the name of 2018 Jeep Patriot Replacement for the future market. However, something happened. There was a big report that the FCA was in solid financial condition. This report rejected by FCA CEO, Sergio Marchionne. We think it is possible for the replacement of Jeep Compass or Patriot. If the company can do this strategy it will make a great sound, thanks to the spy shots.
Spotted with highly camouflaged versions, the new 2018 Jeep Patriot Replacement seems a CUV with a rounded nose look that will remind you to Land Rover LR2 and the front lower fascia has the look of Jeep Cherokee. Even many experts mentioned that the spied version is like a Renegade but with taller dimension.
As for the cabin side, we only have some speculations ready on hands. One thing for sure is that the FCA has a big plan to release it for young buyers. The car will fill the gap between the Renegade and Grand Cherokee. In another word, the new 2018 Jeep Patriot Replacement will go with higher-end interior finishing for a more premium look. Some features will be upgraded such as the safety, infotainment, connectivity, seating design and navigation. Those are updated to make it more comfortable for buyers.
2018 Jeep Patriot Engine
We expect that the new 2018 Jeep Patriot Replacement goes with the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. This engine is still unknown for its output but we think that it should generate about 148 to 171 lb-ft of torque power while the horsepower should be about 160 to 184 hp. Don’t be surprised if the FCA will announce that they will only offer six-speed and nine-speed manual and automatic transmission only. We found a great speculation that the company will use the front-wheel drive for the standard model while the optional will be all-wheel drive setup. It will be equipped with Active Drive and Active Drive Low technology that you also can find in the Renegades and it also has Active Drive I or Active Drive II System from the Cherokee.
2018 Jeep Patriot Replacement will fill the gap between the Renegade which is about $17,900 and the Cherokee that is about $23,300 so we expect that the price for this car is about $18,000 to $22,000 for the top model.
