Posted on August 4, 2020
Finding a high quality but affordable, SUV can be a challenge. It's for that reason that the sales and service experts at North York Chrysler, like to compare and contrast some of the biggest names in the SUV world. While we are obviously partial to the amazing vehicles from Jeep, we thought it would be helpful to put our latest, the 2017 Jeep Patriot, up against the 2017 Honda CR-V. Let's take a closer look at both.
2017 Jeep Patriot
This fun five-seat SUV is available in four trims, Sport, Sport SE, Latitude, and High Altitude. The 2017 Jeep Patriot, which comes in seven sporty exterior colors, offers an amazing combination of affordability and performance. Drivers can expect a standard 2.0-litre I-4 engine that produces 158 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 141 lb.-ft. of torque at 5,000 rpm. On some of the higher trim levels, you can step up to four-wheel drive and a 2.4-litre I-4 16 valve dual VVT engine, which puts out 172 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 165 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,400 rpm. Owners of the 2017 Jeep Patriot get a choice of a five-speed manual transmission, six-speed AutoStick automatic transmission, or a Trail Rated CVT II with Off Road Crawl Ratio, that gives you up to 10.3 L/100 km city and 7.9 L/100 km highway in fuel efficiency.
The ABS braking system with brake assist (BA), 17-inch polished aluminum wheels, and driveline traction control make for a smooth and steady ride. If you need to take the boat to the lake, the 2017 Jeep Patriot has a maximum towing capacity of 907 km (2,000 pounds).
