When you think Jeep, you think 4x4. It’s not surprising really. After all, Jeep manufactured the first 4WD vehicle in 1941, at the request of the US Army. For seven decades now, it’s been at the forefront of off-road technology and innovation. But there’s more to Jeep than mud-covered adventure driving. A 2011 Jeep Sydney is equally suited to inner city and motorway driving as it is to ripping up the mud in the Outback.
Let’s face it. Even the keenest off-road enthusiast probably spends far less time out in the bush than they would like. It’s just a fact of life that we’ve got other priorities. Work, kids, and other commitments - they all take up time. It’s just the way it is. If you think about it, it’s a good thing. If you were able to go off-road whenever you wanted, it wouldn’t be nearly such a thrill. The real joy comes from the feeling of liberation. That special feeling you get when you leave all your troubles behind and get behind the wheel of a Jeep Patriot Sydney.
So, in reality, even if you love hitting the trails, most of the time you spend in the car is definitely on the tarmac. Luckily for you, the Patriot is designed just as much for on the road driving as it is off it. The standard 125 kW 2.4-litre engine has plenty of smooth, quiet and fuel-efficient power. There’s also loads of highway passing muscle when you most need it. The electronically controlled dual Variable Valve Timing (VVT) on both intake and exhaust camshafts provides either maximum fuel-efficiency or power – depending on what’s most required.
The Patriot is not just power and control. It is also designed with comfort in mind. Motorway driving can be long and monotonous. You’re stuck sitting in the same position for hours on end, so the last thing you need is your seat to be uncomfortable. The Patriot Limited comes with a six-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and heated front seats. The Media Centre and host of convenient power features all make driving in a Patriot a pleasurable experience. Turn on to the M4 Western Motorway at Westmead and you’ll be just as comfortable when you reach your destination, as when you started. Whether that’s just up the road or in the next state.
That’s the real Jeep quality, being able to be the master of more than one domain. So often with specialist cars they’re only good for one thing. And that, as we all know, is not what modern life is all about. We all juggle many different roles each day – parent, child, colleague, friend, and explorer. If you’re looking for a car that can handle the demands of all of those things, then look no further than the 2011 Patriot.
