In the beginning of 2007, we have seen the introduction of a compact crossover SUV presented by Jeep and it was Jeep Patriot. Its debut was started for public sow in April 2006 and everything was shown at NY Auto Show with the same MK platform Compass. Both of them are similar but the difference is the Freedom Drive II (FDII) that was only presented for Patriot to make it as the most expensive model with the MK platform. Basically, the Patriot is designed based on Mitsubishi GS or Daimler Chrysler platform. The previous 2007 model received Award as well as 2008 model and now the coming of 2018 Jeep Patriot Electric is expected to keep this tradition.
Based on some unofficial reports, we don’t harm anyone to say that the new 2018 Patriot will be an impressive car with stunning design almost in all angles. The design is truly innovative. The details outside can help the car to come with more modern look than before. It is also possible to get new grille so that this popular SUV has a completely fresh look to make it more distinctive compared to the previous model.

We are pretty sure that the interior will be built with small changes, but the new material is added to give you higher level of quality and convenience than ever. The driver angle is redesigned to give you better function. It wouldn’t be hard for you to drive the car and you will get better driving experience with this new generation.

This car is similar to Cherokee and it will be supported by both front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive so you can pick based on your need.
