After successfully recruiting a special Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition for its squad last year, the Jeep brand recently announced that a similarly kitted-out 2013 Jeep Patriot Freedom Edition is on sale this year with a price that opens at $21,445. The package delivers new gear and new style for owners, but more importantly, it also delivers financial support to help those who have helped the country as members of the U.S. armed forces. As explained by Jeep’s Betty Newman: “In special gratitude for those who serve and have served in the U.S. military, the Jeep brand will be putting ‘its money where its mouth is’ by donating $250 from each 2013 Jeep Patriot Freedom Edition sold to charities benefitting the U.S. military. Eligible customers can also take advantage of a military bonus consumer cash program with a $500 cash allowance.”
The 2013 Jeep Patriot Freedom Edition is available—in limited quantities—in both two- and four-wheel-drive configurations, with the former capable of 30 mpg on the highway and the latter delivering unsurpassed all-wheel-drive performance in its segment. And remember, the Jeep Patriot is built here in the U.S. at the brand’s assembly complex in Belvidere, Ill.
