Jeep Patriot Concept

Jeep Patriot Concept: A modern interpretation of classic Jeep styling.
Strong and capable, the Patriot concept is unmistakably Jeep, designed to appeal to compact SUV buyers who want traditional Jeep styling with best-in-class off-road capability. Jeep Patriot is rugged, exuding the brand`s key attributes of mastery, authenticity, freedom and adventure, but would still offer exceptional fuel economy, interior flexibility and utility at a great value.

"Simple, geometric forms and planar surfaces define Jeep Patriot`s timeless, purpose-built design," said Creed. "Patriot`s face features Jeep`s signature seven-slot grille, a robust bumper, round headlamps, raised, free-standing fog lamps and functional reflectors on the back of the side mirrors. All of this gives Jeep Patriot its robust, strong, capable off-road image."

Painted Armor Green with black door handles, body-side moldings, black accents, dark tinted windows and a stiffer windshield, Jeep Patriot would be built for maximum cargo volume, rugged driving conditions and excellent utility. Four doors and a rear liftgate provide easy access to the Jeep Patriot concept`s spacious and functional interior.

Classic Jeep design cues include aggressive 17-inch off-road wheels and tires housed inside signature Jeep trapezoidal wheel openings. These combine with a raised roof rack that can hold additional gear to provide a no-nonsense, functional statement. Jeep Patriot`s higher beltline completes the vehicle`s protective profile.

The rear of the vehicle features an upright backlight, bold bumper and visible skid plates that further illustrate the Jeep Patriot concept`s interior spaciousness and add to its rugged appearance and capability.

Jeep Patriot not only looks like a Jeep, but all-new Jeep off-road technology would ensure Jeep Patriot could be a Trail Rated 4x4, which would make it the most capable vehicle in its class.
