Jeep has announced a new offer for its Patriot range of cars, namely a range of accessories including a Startech chrome grille and a bodykit.
Also included among the new accessories are upgraded sports suspension and 20-inch alloys.
The SE exterior pack features a number of design features from Startech in one place, including a front and rear under-ride bodykit; chrome grille inserts; exhaust tailpipe cover and Startech logo for the rear of the vehicle for £999.
The SE Lifestyle pack, available at £1,999, gives buyers a leather effect centre armrest cover; four chrome loudspeaker rings; a chrome gearshift gate; leather gear knob and leather effect treatments for the top of the door panels and dashboard instrument panel.
Simon Elliott, managing director of Chrysler UK, said: "People love to personalise their cars. This new range of accessories for the Jeep Patriot will be available in dealerships from June and while some people are happy to add just a few accessories, our great value-for-money packages mean you can really go for it.
"You can now personalise the internal and external styling of the Jeep Patriot or even enhance the performance of the diesel engine."
Other available items include illuminated entrance panels; aluminium pedal pads; three-piece aluminium design kit for the dashboard and aluminium door locking pins. Two sizes of alloy wheels are also available: 19-inch Monostar IV five-spoke alloys or 20-inch Monostar IV five-spoke alloys. Both options come fitted with Yokohama tyres and a locking wheel nut kit.
Startech also offers a performance enhancing option. The PowerXtra performance module increases the power output of the 2.0-litre diesel engine by 40bhp and is aimed at drivers who either want a sportier drive, who tow or frequently have their car loaded with people and luggage and feel that they need a little extra boost for £999.
