If you're reading this, chances are you're considering the purchase of a Jeep Patriot. If you're looking to buy a Jeep Patriot, we would suggest making sure you've closely examined others in the segment. Why? Because you'll find that the Patriot is a knock out competitor. Sharing a platform with the Jeep Compass, the Patriot small crossover SUV seats five people. To give its macho looks some teeth, the Patriot is available with two four-wheel-drive systems. The more capable of the two gets Jeep's Trail-Rated designation, meaning it can meet certain off-road standards for traction, water fording, ground clearance and more. Patriot competitors include the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V and Subaru Forester.
Like the mechanically related Compass, the Patriot is available with a base 2.0-liter I-4 that makes 158 hp, or an optional 2.4-liter I-4 that makes 172 hp. Front, or all-wheel drive is available, inclding a "Trail Rated" all-wheel-drive system designed for serious off-roading. The Patriot's base transmission is a five-speed manual, with a CVT, and a new-for-2014 six-speed automatic optional. Though un-impressive on the road, the Patriot did surprise people a bit off the beaten path. The off-road capability is really where the Jeep Patriot stands out from the rest of the compact-crossovers out there. It truly is capability with a pleasant surprise. While the Jeep did slide a bit through hard packed icy snow - it never got stuck in testing. Showing it's real power for when it gets cruddy outside. Plus the smaller size of the Jeep Patriot makes it easy to maneuver through back trails and city streets alike.
New for 2007, the Patriot last recieved an update in 2011. The 2014 Jeep Patriot is mostly unchanged for the year. Its six-speed automatic transmission is an all-new option this year though. Plus Jeep has begun installing seat-mounted side-curtain airbags as standard equipment as well. Which means you'll have even more protection from the rough and tumble of the world around you while taming the trails in the 2014 Jeep Patriot.
