To qualify for 2013 Top Safety Pick, a automobile must earn good scores within the average overlap entrance, facet, roof strength and head restraint assessments, regardless of its rating in the small overlap front test. Price, to construct out this primary Patriot as outfitted you start with the stripped down at 17.8K mannequin, add 4WD, add A/C (not commonplace…sheesh), energy window/locks and cruise control with the AM/FM/CD player with Auxiliary and you’ve now pushed the sticker up to 23.9K. I had to choke on that as the class leaders add so many extra options commonplace for the same money that I have a hard time backing down from them to contemplate the Patriot as a real choice.
Unlike many opponents which can be accessible with superior security features like lane departure warning or computerized emergency braking, the Patriot is just accessible with a rearview digicam to assist you when backing up. Additionally, many different compact SUVs come customary with a rearview camera, while it is solely elective in the Patriot.
There’s also the usual assortment of airbags, head restraints, stability control and roll mitigation (that is one I have not seen earlier than), ABS, hill begin help (however not with the CVT), brake help, cruise control, a rechargable flashlight (Jeep is telling you to venture past suburban strip malls), keyless entry, air con, heated entrance seats, a decent audio system with Uconnect, and….(drum roll)….illuminated cup holders!
