Jeep is using Veteran's Day to launch the Patriot Freedom Edition, which pays tribute to the men and women of the armed forces with a number of military-themed appearance items.
With the midlevel Latitude trim level as a starting point, the Freedom Edition adds 17-inch high-gloss Mineral Gray painted aluminum wheels, a star graphic on the hood and an “Oscar Mike” (that’s military speak for “on the move”) badge on the lower front door. Inside, there’s unique dark gray “Cubic” cloth upholstery along with vinyl seat bolsters, silver accent stitching and a black fabric “star” logo patch on the front seats.
Fittingly, just three colors will be on offer: Deep Cherry Red, Bright White and True Blue. Additional standard features over the normal Patriot Latitude include a sunroof and the Security and Cargo Convenience option group. Front-wheel-drive is standard, and four-wheel-drive is available.
The 2013 Jeep Patriot Freedom Edition will carry a base price of $22,440 (including destination). For each unit sold, Jeep will donate $250 to military charities. The limited edition crossover is available at dealerships now alongside the Wrangler Freedom Edition.
