Chrysler has just revealed the first images and details of its 2011 Jeep Patriot, and the compact softroader has received very subtle nip/tuck for the new model year that touch nearly every aspect of the vehicle.
The alterations include a new front fascia with fog lamps integrated with the headlamps, color-keyed grille, a new front fascia that’s lower than before, new 17-inch alloys and a brace of new colors, among other differences.
Under the skin, the baby Jeep receives reworked steering and suspension tunings (though the company declines specifics) and 4×4 models benefit from additional inch of ride height to augment its off-road capabilities.
Like other recent Chrysler models, the Patriot’s interior has been a sticking point since the model was introduced for the 2007 model year, and the Auburn Hills automaker has devoted quite a bit of attention to upgrading the cabin in this revised model. Changes include new soft-touch door panels with backlighting for the door and window switches, a new armrest, a new wheel with redundant audio controls (along with Bluetooth and cruise), higher-quality cloth on the seats, and so on.
