How the Patriot Transports Occupants
The 2016 Patriot will give you one of the best 4x4 capabilities available, and because of it you have no idea how great this SUV is for any all-weather capability you may need it for. The SUV tows up to 2,000 pounds worth of belongings behind it, and what will help with the towing is the SUV's four-wheel independent and towing suspensions. If you need to turn around in a circle in the 2016 Patriot you will only need a 35.6-foot diameter to do so. This SUV may give you a maximum of 30 miles to the gallon highway. A driver might get 158 horsepower at 6,400 revolutions per minute (rpm) and up to 141 ft-lbs of torque at 5,000 rpm. The five-speed manual transmission will help get you to your destination. The SUV's engine will have a double overhead cam (DOHC), 16 valves and variable valve timing. 2.0-liters is the standard engine's size, but you will have your choice of four-cylinder engines. If you would want to, you can buy a block heater for your engine. Three drivetrains are available for the SUV: standard front-wheel drive, Freedom Drive I and Freedom Drive II. Freedom Drive I works as a four-wheel drive unit 100% of the time it is on, handles messy weather efficiently, and has lockable center coupling to put the SUV in four-wheel-drive-lock. The Patriot will travel well through sand, or any snow you might come across, with Freedom Drive I because of what it offers. Freedom Drive II is equipped with a low-ranged continuously-variable transaxle (CVT2L), and works while you are using off-road mode. Freedom Drive II is also a four-wheel-drive system, and has skid plates and tow hooks.
