Jeep Patriot and Compass lack of power?

Hi all,

So my friend is looking to buy a new or near new 'crossover' type for his next work vehicle.
I went with him out to Chadstone Chrysler Jeep Dodge and Berwick Chrysler Jeep Dodge, we test drove the Compass and a Patriot Blachawk.

He was so keen on the white 2014 Blackhawk until we took it for a test drive..
It was extremely under powered, I mean 2L in such a big car we should have expected it. I think it may also have something to do with the variable transmission gearbox it has in the auto version? It's a worry to pull out into traffic because the lack of power so i was wondering if anyone has the manual version and if it's any better?

failing that are there any reasonably in-expensive (sub 3k) mods we could do to improve this?

I know there is an 2.4 version but for some reason that is 10k more expensive

Anyway if anyone has any ideas of how to improve performance or have another similar car around the 27k price feel free to let me know
