Chrysler's hitting the Twitters this morning with a wave of photos of its new 2011 products--including this first photo of the 2011 Jeep Patriot.

The Patriot isn't due for a total overhaul, unlike the brand-new Fiat 500 Sport found today via Twitpic--and unlike the mysterious 2011 Chrysler 200 just launched across the social-media airwaves.

We do expect the light refreshing of the Patriot will improve even a bit more over the new interior that arrived in the 2010 model year. Chrysler says "touch points" have been improved, which probably means a better grade of some interior materials.

Chrysler says, briefly, in Tweet form, "The 2011 Jeep Patriot is here with aggressive new styling and unsurpassed 4x4 fuel economy." On the official media site, the company says the Patriot's new front and rear-end styling match up with increased ride height and better handling.

There's yet more Chrysler information coming today as the company convenes its dealers in Orlando, and spills some of the beans on its future 2011-2012 lineup. Stay with us @highgearmedia @carconnection @greencarreports @therealma as we stay ahead of the product curve.

  1. The small improvements add up to a better package. The front,rear and side lower body moldings give it a much more refined and rugged appearance. Love the fog lamps. No more ugly muffler to be seen. One inch of added height give character. Great interior for the price point.A Jeep in your driveway on a budget and excellent gas milage to boot.
    Glad Chrysler/Jeep have not given up on the Patriot/Compass twins which hold enormous potential as urban haulers and developing market mainstays in Fiats expanded global market. Look for improved sales from this freshened small Jeep.

  2. I think Jeep misses the mark a little by not offering a line of styling ext. accesories, chrome grill and mirror covers along with chrome door handles.
