The 2013 Jeep Patriot includes air conditioning, a CD sound system, fog lamps, and cruise control even in base Sport guise, although this is a vehicle that still gives you hand-crank windows.
You'll need to step up to the Latitude for power accessories and other extras, and the top Limited model earns heated leather seats, keyless entry, cruise control, and a 115-volt power outlet.
Patriot shoppers who want more than front-wheel drive have a choice of two four-wheel drive systems—Freedom Drive I, and Freedom Drive II Off-Road. The latter includes a low range plus a heavier-duty suspension, skid plates, and other enhancements. Add the All-Weather Capability Group and you'll also get 17-inch all-terrain tires, an engine block heater, and tow hooks.
Among available extras are voice-control Bluetooth connectivity, a remote start system, a navigation system with Sirius Travel Link, a universal garage-door opener, and an upgraded Boston Acoustics sound system with outward-facing tailgate speakers.
