If you want an adventure in the mountain, this one is what you’re looking for, especially on those rocky roads. The one who will operate this jeep will be surely safe with its tires and rails. This is going to be a big hit.

I’m not a SUV or Jeep guy, but if Jeep built this with good fuel economy, I would pick it black.

Cheap, ugly and useless. It’s an insult to the Jeep name. Don’t redesign. Kill it

Thanks for getting rid of the share bar. But you still have to fix the photo gallery. I have to hit the back button approximately 800 times after viewing 3 pictures of the wrangler’s interior.

If in the future Toyota wanted to revive the Supra, they could stick in a Subaru flat-6 engine in this FT86 RWD chassis (possibly turbocharge it), and release it with a new design. 400-500hp should be easy turbocharged. It would take them minimal investment.

The patriots looks great. Real Jeeps have Round headlights.

Mr. White. The Jeep Patriot is not a replacement for the Commander or anyother Jeep model. The Patriot was released in 2007 as its own model. The Patriot in this article is just about a carbon copy of Patriots from members on It was are group who brought the rocky road lift to Jeep asking for it to be under warranty and they put it on their "exterme" model. Just about everything they have done, members of the site had done and more.

I doubt that Jackson_white, this is the replacement of the Jeep Commander, this has almost the same performance as the Jeep Cherokee.

What a lovely SUV, it’s just a smaller version of the Jeep Commander.

Well this is quite a fun drive, impressive patriot well suited to face the extreme off road conditions like mud, water and sand. but IMO the cherokee is much more fun to drive with.
