Jeep Patriot

Jeep Patriot 2017 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2017 Sport 4-door SUV 4WD Automatic
Although the small Patriot SUV has a compliant ride and mostly simple controls, little else stands out other than its temptingly low price. It is seriously outdated and outclassed by the majority of the small-SUV class. Handling borders on clumsy, although the Patriot ultimately proves secure at its limits. In our tests the sluggish 2.4-liter four-cylinder returned just 21 mpg overall, placing it at the bottom of our tested small-SUV category. Once inside, passengers will notice the narrow cabin, wide center console, low-rent interior, and small windows, which give the car a closed-in feeling. On top of all that, the cargo area is small.

2007 Redesign Year
Jeep Patriot 2016
Jeep's Patriot small SUV is related to the Jeep Compass and Dodge Caliber, but has a more upright body. It uses the same 2.0- and 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engines found in the Caliber, which we found slow and noisy. Ride and handling are acceptable, but not impressive. Interior fit and finish are sub par. The narrow cabin and small windows give a closed-in feel. The Patriot is not designed for serious off-roading, but should be capable for the occasional trail excursion. An optional off-road package has a hill-descent system and an extra low gear in the CVT. Five-speed manual and CVT transmissions are offered. 2009 models received some updates, but not enough to lift this car from mediocrity.
