Even the Jeep Patriot is getting the VIP treatment for next month's Paris Motor Show, arriving in Mopar-accessorized Back Country regalia. The Patriot Back Country concept gets a special coat of Optic Green paint along with a roof-mounted cargo basket, off-road lighting, 18" wheels and tires and blackout treatments at key exterior points. Inside, the gussied-up Patriot receives special urethane easy-clean seat material inspired by wetsuits. Overall, the Back Country package seems to complement the Patriot's interior refresh pretty nicely, and from certain no-doubt carefully chosen camera angles, the Patriot Back Country sort of vaguely resembles an older Toyota Land Cruiser from the rear three-quarter view. The other views...not so much.
