The 2009 version of the Jeep Patriot features an all-new, high quality interior.

A raft of improvements inside the Patriot include an all-new instrument panel, redesigned centre console and remodelled door trim.

Federico Goretti, managing director of Chrysler UK Ltd, said: “The Jeep Patriot’s upgraded interior proves how seriously we take the feedback from our customers. These enhancements show how committed Chrysler is to building high quality vehicles that have all-round appeal.”

The instrument panel has been given a superior smoother look while new circular heating, ventilation and air-conditioning vents are surrounded by tasteful chrome. The centre console now has a split lid to boost storage space and as with the door trim its arm rests have more padding for increased comfort.

All models now feature a carpeted boot floor and premium floor mats and there are new sound systems. Standard on Sport models is a single-disc CD radio with AUX and MP3 capability while Limited versions get a six-disc CD radio, again with AUX and MP3 capability.

New on Jeep Patriot Limited is the optional Sound and Navigation Group, Jeep’s state-of-the-art vehicle infotainment system, consisting of uconnect gps, uconnect phone, UCI and the premium Boston Acoustics® sound system.

All Patriots come with a long list of standard features including Freedom-Drive ITM 4×4 system, electric windows, front and side-curtain airbags, air conditioning, 17″ aluminium wheels, ABS and ESP with Electronic Roll Mitigation.

Along with a competitive price and Jeep’s legendary off-road ability, excellent fuel economy also comes as standard. The 2.0 CRD returns a wallet-welcoming 42.2mpg.

Prices for the 2009 Jeep Patriot range starts from £14,995, making this the first Jeep priced under £15,000.
