Additionally, Jeep has released a special edition Arctic trim, which is available solely in AWD and comes with unique interior and exterior detailing, as well as feature upgrades from the Sport trim. Each model comes equipped with its standard 3.7L V6 engine that produces 210 horsepower and 235 pound-feet of torque, and every model also features an automatic four-speed transmission. Fuel economy for the 2012 Jeep Patriot varies with 2WD models offering 16 city / 22 highway MPG and AWD models giving 15 city / 22 highway MPG.
In true Jeep fashion, AWD builds of the 2012 Jeep Liberty are available in two different drive systems, so owners can tailor their off-roading capabilities to their specific needs. All AWD Liberty trims come standard with the COMMAND-TRAC II 4WD, which features 2WD, 4WD high and low ranges, and neutral options for different driving conditions. Available on every trim is the SELEC-TRAC II 4WD, which offers full-time AWD high range that shifts based on the terrain and includes a manual 4WD Low mode for use when additional torque is necessary.
