Jeep Patriot 2017
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.
