2014 Jeep Patriot is the first class 6F24 six-speed automatic. Independently developed by PowerTech and refined for use in Jeep Patriot 2014, the six-speed automatic transmission is fully automated and designed for energy efficiency and performance.
The new six-speed transmission has a fill-for-life design, transmission filter and fluid changes are not required under normal driving conditions. The use of Low-viscosity fluid helps to improve fuel economy in climates like Alaska.The transmission can achieve faster optimal temperatures with less drag within the transmission.
Two different 4WD systems are available on the Jeep Patriot: Freedom Drive I active full-time 4x4 with a lockable center coupling for deep snow, sand and other low-traction surfaces, or the Freedom Drive II.
Based on the dismal Dodge Caliper compact hatchback, the Patriot first launched back in 2007 with eccentric styling and a seriously downmarket interior. Since then, the crossover has been significantly upgraded with styling that mimics the excellent Grand Cherokee SUV and an improved cabin.
