PRN10-CHRYSLER-JEEP-PATRIOT-1yHigh[1]Auburn Hills, Michigan – Chrysler has released photos of the new 2011 Jeep Patriot, which features new front and rear styling, increased 4×4 ride height, and improved interior.

The Patriot receives new front and rear fascias and a body-colour grille with standard fog lamps, along with retuned steering and suspension for an improved ride and handling.

Interior upgrades include new soft-touch door trim panels, centre armrest, steering wheel with integrated stereo and hands-free phone controls, and standard cruise control on all models.
