2017 – “Jeep Patriot”

“Feeling like a modern, but not as rugged incarnation of the classic ’80s and ’90s Jeep Cherokee, the Jeep Patriot is a simple crossover that makes a decent budget choice”.

Styling:

The Patriot’s boxy, trim, bold exterior yields a useful interior with good cargo space and rear seatbacks that flip forward easily to make more room. We’ve found entry and exit very easy, thanks to the tall roofline, with plenty of head room front and back.

What is important is the improved driving comfort. There is enough space for five passengers. The seats can optionally be equipped with a heated and covered with leather. It’s a little higher level of equipment. Will enjoy the pleasant atmosphere of the illuminated LED light and all necessary equipment. The largest part is focused on the central display.

 

Performance:

The Jeep Patriot drives a more like an entry-level small sedan or hatchback than you might expect, but it delivers a higher degree of off-road ability.

2017-jeep-patriot-mule-engine-3

The base engine on front-wheel-drive models is a 158-horsepower, 2.0-liter inline-4, while any version equipped with all-wheel drive comes standard with a 172-hp, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder. A 5-speed manual comes standard on the Sport regardless of drive wheels, while a 6-speed automatic is optional with both engines.

 

Safety and Fuel Economy:

In the government’s test, the Patriot scores four out of five stars, including especially worrisome three-star scores for frontal crash and rollover likelihood. It does, however, earn five stars for side impact per the NHTSA.

City – 20 MPG.
Highway – 25 MPG city.

 

Key Features and Price:

The Patriot includes cruise control, roof rails, fog lamps, illuminated cupholders, rear-seat heater ducts, tilt steering, cruise control, tinted glass, and an auxiliary input for audio. But air conditioning and power windows and locks are optional, which helps explain the roughly $18,000 base price.

Technology is something which helps you to get recognization in the market with the level of awareness of your company’s products or services in the marketplace.

Today let’s discuss technologies that have made an impact in the market.

 

 

 

 

 

G-Vectoring Control technology – Mazda 2017: The idea behind G-Vectoring Control is using the engine to enhance chassis performance. It controls the level of engine torque based on steering inputs, in order to control the vertical load on each axle and thus improve traction.

With G-Vectoring Control, the movement of the car is more in line with the driver’s intentions, reducing the need for steering corrections and helping to improve handling and stability on less than ideal road surfaces.

Hyundai Sonata Uses Augmented Reality For Maintenance: Hyundai has built an augmented reality app called the Virtual Guide. It allows owners to use their phones to get more familiar with their cars and learn how to perform basic maintenance.

You can use the app to get an augmented reality view of the engine compartment or interior of the car, with floating digital dots illustrating different points of interest like the windshield washer bottle or the location of the air filter.

Engine Specs:

New cars will be equipped with five kinds of power plant using the well-proven concept of the SKYACTIV-G and -D:

  • Gasoline engine: capacity 2 l, power — 150 HP
  • Gasoline engine: the capacity of 2,5 l, power — 192 HP
  • Diesel engine: 2.2 l capacity, 150 or 175 HP

maxresdefault-1

The two-liter unit comes with a 6-speed manual transmission or 6 speed automatic. The fuel consumption is about 34 mpg when driving on the highway. Acceleration to 60 mph can be achieved in 7.9 seconds. The engine displacement of 2.5 liters is available only with automatic transmission.

A new modification of engines differs in terms of its higher efficiency. Excellent results have been achieved due to the high compression ratio, the highest among petrol units. Diesel motors are paired with both types of transmission. The environmental class is Euro 5.

When to replace the Timing Belt?

A timing belt runs the engine camshaft. It’s called “timing belt” because its main job is to precisely time valve opening and closing with up-and-down movement of the pistons.

Timing belt replacement is one of the high-price maintenance items that many motorists have to deal with.


How exactly it works?

A timing belt is a reinforced rubber belt, which transfers the engine motion to the camshaft to operate the cylinder valves. The belt runs on a pulley from the crankshaft to the camshaft.

timing-belt

It controls the rotation of the camshaft and crankshaft and the opening and closing of the engine’s many valves to allow air and gas in and out, which causes the fuel to ignite in the combustion chamber. During this explosion, the valves push the pistons down.

When the timing belt breaks, the valves, which are very light, will open at the wrong time and hit the larger pistons and cause damage.


How to determine if the timing belt is in good condition?

Usually a timing belt is covered by plastic or metal covers. Your mechanic can remove one of the covers and visually assess the condition of the timing belt.

When to replace the it?

Timing belt recommended replacement intervals vary from 60,000 to 100,000 miles. You can find the recommended interval in your car’s owner’s manual.

Timing belt replacement cost

Timing belt replacement in a 4-cylinder engine may cost from $250 to $600, plus a little extra if you want to replace the water pump and other hardware. In a V6 or V8 engine, the timing belt replacement cost can run from $380 to $780.

Inspection should cost much less than $25.
