Patriot manual 4x4

Hi all. Please enlighten me.

How does the Patriot manual transmission 4x4 work? Is a all time drive 4x4 or do you select 4x4? When is 4x4 what is the power distribution? Does the vehicle have diff lock?

Unable to find clear answers to these questions.

Thanks

Re: Patriot manual 4x4

Hi, no dont have VIN.
But found out, seems basically front wheel drive that automatically sends drive power to rear wheels when front starts losing traction. So not a true 4x4 at all.

Very different to the Grand Cherokee that I now drive.
