Hmmmmmm, looks like Jeep Green is joining the scrapbook of history in favor of new-kid-on-the-block Natural Green. Historically, has this color ever been used anywhere else in the Chysler/Dodge/Jeep/MOPAR lineup? If yes, pictures anyone?

Also since the winds of change are blowing and the subject is color, I would liked to have seen Rock Red Crystal Pearl replace Inferno Red, and Light Greystone Pearl replace or supplement Bright Silver.

Sadly, I've been waiting to order an Optic Green Patriot RME since first announced and it now appears I may never get the chance. Major Bummer. :(

.
Attenzione!!! Sergio Marchionne:

Please don't force me to buy a Subaru Forester AND keep your hands off Belvidere Assembly. I want a Jeep Patriot that's built (and built right) in Belividere, Illinois, just like my '98 Dodge Neon ACR and my mother's Plymouth station wagon many years before. If you must, build the Cinquecento (FIAT 500) in Toluca or even better import it from Italy because I don't think its' sales numbers will shake things up in North America and it certainly isn't going to save the company. Smart design and engineering for the American and Canadian markets will.

If you're going to 'give' us anything in exchange for the keys to the store handed to you by the powers that be, then for starters why not put together a good fuel efficient and powerful diesel option for the Patriot and other Jeep platforms that can be sold in North America.

Respectfully, Irish Waif

yuck, ..."Natural Green" ??? i haven't seen a vehicle with a regular natural green color in a LONG time. that was so...late 80's early 90's. well, there were some Ford Explorer in the mid-late 90's with a natural full green color.

how can they get rid of the Jeep Green ?!?!?!?!?!?!?​

Irish Waif, at the risk of being put on a few American hit-lists, I agree with you. You are close to voicing what, to every European, is as obvious as the wart on their nose__Diesel will save the American automobile industry. Almost every single article that's ever been written on this site about diesel is thirty years out of date; it is erroneous rubbish. There have been articles about diesels that clatter and belch smoke and won't start in winter... and then the writer says he was describing his 1964 Dodge, or something just as irrelevant.
The diesels we drive do a hundred and five miles per hour (if it's a Jaguar diesel, a hundred and sixty miles per hour(!)), they have addititives that'll start easily in a Latvian winter, they do not belch smoke and they do forty miles per gallon. They are ALL turbo assisted, every one of them. It's a no brainer. America has only got to think "diesel" rather than "gas" and you can drive whatever vehicle you want. No need to start thinking about Sesame Street cars, no need to start worrying about biofuel and the Iowa economy nothing. I really don't see the problem. No European does.

diesel would be great, and would improve MPG's across the board...but it doesn't solve the energy dependence issue. we are trying to get away from oil all together...and while that may seem hard to do given our current state of dependence, i bet a lot of manufacturers are hesitant to start pouring tons and tons of R&D budgets into developing clean diesel engines if engines that run on oil will be abandoned all together.

diesel would be great on the interim...but i have the feeling that the administration is trying to accelerate fuel efficiency by skipping over diesel and moving to something more domestic, abundant, and cleaner. clean diesel with the nitrous oxide converter makes the vehicle cleaner than a prius, but the notion that the oil is from a refinery off shores still makes people want to get away from it.

i am all for a clean diesel vehicle though...and wish this country invested in the technology over a decade ago! :doh:

Biodiesel is the way to go. No need to depend on imported oil if you produce biodiesel.
except all of the resources that go into making the bio-fuel...drives up the cost of food, domestic products, and land. it's a start...but we need something that's more that has less of an impact on resources.

i really think the way to go is electricity or fuel cell technology...and to support that we need to overhaul our nuclear program. invest and do more research into re-processing nuclear waste for energy (processes already exist but they are not considered reliable enough for full-scale electricity production). Canada has over 35% of the world's natural supply of Uranium. they will be the next "Middle East" so to speak...and we are poised to be the continent with the most energy potential since we are right in North America.

the real problem we face now is not electricity production, but battery technology. we are so far behind in battery technology that even if we develop a miracle way of making electricity from nothing at all...we don't have a means of efficiently storing that energy in a vehicle. our battery technology sucks in comparison to what we have the potential of doing energy wise...

Other than price going up, the only difference is addition & deletion of colors, & color door handle, color rear tailgate handle, (which is standard on the 09 RME) + the auto temp A/C for $155? Now, did i miss anything? (illuminated cup holders (finally, or TBD) & leather hand brake handle) "POWER 6 Way Driver Seats"!

With the 2010 pricing out, can we assume that they will no longer built the 09s??? As we head into July, & the plant is still closed.

I'd expect the Patriot's cost to keep rising with base models up in the 23-25K range in the next few years.

You are right JGG. The battery issue is so big that, for the moment at least, it means that electric cars can be neglected. A vehicle that does only 40 to 80 miles between fill-ups, that takes about three-quarters of an hour to fill ( so that every filling station has to be a Little Chef for the coffee and doughnuts you going to get through while the car's filling), that presents serious problems each time you run out (you can't hitch-hike up the road and bring 300 kilowatt-hours back in a jerry-can), that forces you, in winter, to choose between mileage and heating and that sets you back ten grand for a new battery is never going to be anything other than a rock star's fashion accessory.
Oh, and while folks might feel smug and saintly as they purr along with no exhaust fumes, for the moment, at least, all they're doing is leaving their exhaust fumes at the power station fifty miles away.

Rocal

In today's Times there's an article about some cockamamie electric sports car that does a hundred and thirty miles per hour. It costs a modest ninety-six thousand pounds ($170 000) so I might be getting one next Monday and, if I like it, one for my wife too.

I see the new base price for the 4x4 Limited, and it makes me even more glad that I bought my 08 when I did!

4x2 models will still be available. I was going to add them to the list but ran out of time. Here is the pricing for 4x2:

2010 PATRIOT 4x2 SPORT ($17,735 + $630 destination)

2010 PATRIOT 4x2 LIMITED ($22,740 + $630 destination)

The sales code for Natural Green (PGN) is the same code on the Chrysler paint chart for the color Timberline Green, which has been used on the Dodge Ram. A Google image search for "Dodge Ram Timberline Green" will bring up some examples.​

Funny, I don't see anything in there about them making sure the 2010 models are leak proof. That should be their #1 upgrade.

"Timberline Green" was a beautiful color on the Dodge trucks. I am interested in seeing this on a Patriot, and glad that dark greens in general have made a comeback. :)

Hmm, some interesting things. Power driver seat for the Limited. Heated side mirrors for E and F packages. Body colors door handles would be excellent!

BTW, the 4x4 Limited I have has an MSRP of $22,740 including the $225. color charge and $30 floor mats. From the build and price today for 2009 models, the Sports only went up less than $200 and the Limited $500, but the Limited includes some extras like the power seat and heated mirrors.

Oh, thanks, Milous, for the advanced information on 2010 models. We really enjoy seeing what the little changes are every year.

I missed the heated mirrors on the list, now for $500, you get all these extras. What a deal!
