Jeep Patriot: Styling Impressions
DaimlerChrysler's Jeep brand promises two concept vehicles for the upcoming Frankfurt auto show -- and one of the pair will be outfitted with off-roading gear that will earn it Jeep's "Trail Rated" badge. Jeep says the first concept, the Compass, is more a high-performance crossover vehicle inspired by rally cars. The SUV twin of the Compass compact will be the Patriot, a four-door SUV with unmistakable Jeep design cues and four-wheel drive. Promising that the Patriot will be the most capable SUV in its class, Jeep has revealed few other details. However, the similar Dodge Caliber, Chrysler officials say, will get a 170-hp, four-cylinder engine and a continuously variable transmission. The Frankfurt show opens to the press on September 12. Jeep's Patriot concept is headed for production.
