2013 Jeep Patriot Freedom Edition Gives To Military Charities

Follow Richard

Chrysler has debuted a new, special edition of its Jeep Patriot SUV: the 2013 Jeep Patriot Freedom edition.

The announcement came yesterday, while many Americans were observing Veterans Day. The timing isn't coincidental: like the Jeep Wrangler Freedom edition, the Patriot Freedom is billed as "a tribute to the brave men and women that have served", according to Mike Manley, Jeep's president and CEO.

That's not just talk: Jeep is donating $250 from the sale of each Patriot Freedom to a range of military charities. The vehicle is also eligible for Chrysler's Military Bonus Consumer Cash program, which offers a $500 cash allowance to "active military, active military reserve, retired military (honorable discharge and 20 years of service required), and retired military reserve (honorable discharge and 20 years of service required). Honorably discharged veterans are eligible within 6 months of discharge date."

On the exterior, the first difference you're likely to notice between the Freedom edition and the regular Jeep Patriot is a military-inspired star right in the center of the hood, as well as on the rear quarter panel. The vehicle comes with three patriotic paint options: Deep Cherry Red (seen above), Bright White, and True Blue. The 17" aluminum wheels are painted in Mineral Gray, and on the front doors, you'll find a badge labeled "Oscar Mike", which is military lingo for "on the move". 

Inside, you'll find features like those on the 2013 Jeep Patriot Latitude, on which the Patriot Freedom is based -- features like a sunroof and all-season floor mats. However, there are a few differences, including the dark gray cloth interior, which comes with "silver accent stitching and a black fabric 'star' logo patch on the front seats". 

With two- and four-wheel drive configurations, the 2013 Jeep Patriot Freedom Edition starts at $21,445, plus a $995 destination charge. It's currently available at Jeep dealers nationwide.

  1. It's good to see Jeep expending energy on the Patriot. I firmly believe that Jeep has a potentally strong market for the Compass (in a new size class) and the Patriot. Jeep shares this I'm sure and I believe the next generation of these two offerings will expand sales and market share, especially in developing markets. They key is keeping close to the Jeep character and tradition in the "entry level/soft" market. I expect the next generations of both to be more destinctive, differently sized and highly successful. Anyone agree ?
