Jeep Patriot Adventure

Hey Guys,

ATTENTION: Looking for adventurous and creative Jeep Patriot and Marvel Comics fans! If this describes you, then here’s a way to express your creativity!

Check out The Patriot Factor page on the Jeep website and get started on creating a script for a new Comic book! In this comic, the all-new 2007 Jeep Patriot ( https://www.patriotadventure.com ) plays an integral role in the hero's journey and you get to commandeer where the story goes!

An expert panel from Marvel Comics will judge input from participants. If your idea is chosen, you will see your script come to life through the pencil of Marvel artist Bing Cansino. Adding to the excitement, the contestant selected may get a chance to receive an original page sketch signed by Bing himself! You can check back daily to see your imaginative ideas evolve from sketch to ink to color.

Check it out here https://www.patriotadventure.com , have fun!

Good luck to all!

Kelly

Hi there micifus,

Glad to hear you've given the contest a try. How far in to it are you? It's a pretty cool blend program for comic book/Jeep enthusiasts in my opinion. Hopefully it'll fair pretty well over time. Again, we're here to answer any questions about either the all-new Patriot or the contest.

Speak to you soon and good luck!

Since I've got the chance to make my voice heard...

Not much to say about this campaign specifically, but in general it's better than that godawful bobblehead one that was used for the Compass. The whole 'urban' theme for a vehicle that's supposed to be able to get people out of the city... Yeah. Still trying to figure that one out.

Also, please stop comparing the Patriot to the Cherokee. I own a 2000 Cherokee, and while I like the Patriot and would possibly consider buying one in a couple of years as a second vehicle, it's not the Cherokee. Granted, they look somewhat similar, but that's about it - they are not the same mechanically or in terms of off-road capability (which I'm fine with), but the constant comparisons aren't making a sizeable portion of the Jeep community happy either. Be completely honest about its capabilities (which I have to admit are pretty impressive in FD-II form) and it'll go some way towards undoing the resentment currently being felt towards the Patriot and Compass.

I'm curious as to why there are no FD-II Patriots on the lots in Southern California - this is the model I'm most interested in, and while I've driven a 5-speed AWD model, it doesn't really give me a full rundown of what to expect.

Oh, and diesel engines across the entire range in the US, please.

Hey casm,

Thank you for your comments and questions! You are correct in saying that the all new Jeep Patriot is not similar to the Jeep Grand Cherokee’s. They may hold a similar body style, however the Patriot provides you with the ultimate Jeep Trail Rated capability. The 19:1 crawl ratio is awesome!

The Patriots are out on dealer lots and with the option of the Continuously Variable Transaxle w/Off-Road Crawl Ratio. You can locate a dealer in your area right from the Jeep home page. Select ‘Find A Dealer’ on the left column, enter your zip code and click Go. You can also view through their inventories. Click on ‘Search Inventory’ on the Jeep home page, enter your zip code and click Go.

Let me know if you have any questions, I'll be around!

Thanks again.

Kelly

"Grand" Cherokee and "Dodge Home Page"????? The Patriots a Jeep the last time that I checked. Maybe DC or whoever they're called is going threw an identity crisis or maybe just marketing.

Gramps,

Thank you for pointing that out! My mistake! These directions were meant to be followed within the Jeep Website.

Thank you for the heads up!

While I appreciate the reply, I feel like not a lot of time was spent reading or comprehending my original comments.

Like many others, I am well aware that the Patriot bears no resemblance to the Grand Cherokee. The Grand Cherokee, however, was not the vehicle I was comparing it to. The comparison was being drawn with the XJ-model Cherokee, manufactured between 1984 and 2001 and replaced by the Liberty in that year; this comparison has also been made in press releases, dealer literature, etc. It's really saddening (and frustrating) to see replies like this, because it gives the impression that Jeep's marketing contractors fundamentally do not understand the products they're supposed to be representing.

I've done that. I've also called every single dealer in the Los Angeles area trying to find an FD-II model, and while they do have CVT-equipped versions on the lots, they're all either FWD or FD-I, neither of which are models I'd consider. Given the length of time the Patriot has been on the market, I find it odd that not one FD-II model has made it to dealers' lots - I know they've delivered at least one, because I spoke with the owner about it, but even he couldn't get an FD-II model for a test drive and had to order it on faith.

Hey there casm,

Sorry about the oversight. I strongly encourage you to re-visit - or call - your local Jeep dealership to locate the vehicle. Reason being, the dealership has access to the most thorough inventory search system and can surely locate the vehicle for you. When you communicate with them, request that they use the DealerConnect system to locate one with the FD-II system for you. The database itself is very granular when it comes to specific details and options.

If you have any other questions, feel free to post.

I'll be around.

Miguel M.

Patriots with FD-II are definately around here in the northeast, we saw two on the lots when we were looking around to buy the one we have now (a regular FD-I version).
