What You Will Like

The Patriot is an unexpectedly capable city car, combining a boxy, rugged-looking traditional Jeep appearance with car-like handling, good outward visibility, an interior that's comfortable for four adults and a city-friendly small-car size. The drivetrain and ground clearance, combined with an available Freedom-Drive II off-road package, makes for respectable off-road capability as well. Even the base model includes a strong list of essential safety features.

Introduction

As the boxiest member of the lineup, the Jeep Patriot has aged reasonably well. Open the door, though, and it’s evident that the stark interior has become quite dated since its debut as a 2007 model, followed by freshening for 2011. Compared to the far newer Cherokee and Renegade, the Jeep Patriot seems like a relic of the past.

On the other hand, if you’re looking for moderately priced transportation and don’t crave the latest equipment, this comparative old-timer still has a lot to offer.

In urban environments, the Patriot promises easy maneuverability. If an off-road journey lies in your future, this upright-stance Jeep can deliver authentic rural capabilities.

The original Patriot was noisy, austere, and sluggish on the road. Since then, Jeep has managed to enhance its appeal. Today, in the twilight of its lifespan, the sensible-size Patriot melds rugged Jeep lines with civility, resulting in a practical family transporter.

That boxy, still-bold exterior contains a highly useful interior, yielding ample cargo space. Rear seatbacks flip forward easily. Getting in and out is especially easy, helped by the Patriot’s high roofline. In both front and rear, passengers enjoy abundant headroom. Oddly, the seating position is somewhat low, facing a rather tall, encompassing dashboard.

A 158-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder serves as base engine. Four-wheel-drive models get a 2.4-liter engine that produces 172 horsepower. A 5-speed manual gearbox is standard with front-drive, but a 6-speed automatic transmission is available.

Also available is a continuously variable transmission (CVT), bundled with the Freedom Drive II four-wheel-drive system. That system gives Patriot Jeep’s Trail Rated badge, as well as moderate capability for chugging through sand and mud. A suitably equipped Patriot can even handle mild rock-crawling, helped by the CVT’s Low range (absent from the Freedom Drive I CVT).

For 2016, Jeep Patriot is available in Sport and Latitude trim levels. The Limited model is gone, replaced with option packages that include much of its equipment. A new Patriot Sport SE package raises ride height on front-wheel-drive models, adds tow hooks to 4WD models, and brings such upgrades as heated mesh front seats.

In federal crash tests, the Patriot received four stars for overall safety, including an especially worrisome three-star score in frontal-crash and rollover testing. Testing by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rated the Patriot Good in most categories, but Poor in the tougher small-overlap frontal test.

Lineup

Patriot Sport ($17,595) includes cruise control, roof rails, foglamps, tilt steering, cruise control, and 16-inch alloy wheels (17-inch with 4WD). Windows are manual and air conditioning remains optional, but the 2016 Sport gains hands-free Uconnect and SiriusXM Radio. Four-wheel drive adds $2,000. (Prices are MSRP and do not include the $995 destination charge.)

Patriot Latitude ($22,195) adds air conditioning, power windows and locks, heated cloth front seats, a fold-flat front passenger seat, and new automatic headlights. Four-wheel drive is available ($3,300). A High Altitude package includes leather-trimmed seats, a power driver’s seat, sunroof, and painted 17-inch wheels.

Safety equipment includes electronic stability control with roll mitigation, front side airbags, and side-curtain bags.

Walkaround

Next to the new Renegade, the Jeep Patriot looks dated. Yet it still looks rugged: a boxy, city-sized crossover, laden with Jeep design heritage. Some frontal design cues are borrowed from the iconic, hard-traveling Wrangler, while slab-sided styling harks back to the old-model Cherokee.

Body proportions are squared-off, but don’t convey a refrigerator aura. Careful detailing keeps the exterior simple, yet purposeful. Such familiar elements as the seven-slot grille and stocky door handles demonstrate an appealing blend of civility and masculine themes.

Interior

The Patriot’s upright exterior translates to useful interior space.

There is a sense of cheapness in the cabin details, however. Updating since its introduction has brightened and softened the cabin, but it’s hard not to notice the low-rent materials and hard, dull plastic. In addition, you get a strange, tall dashboard layout, along with a relatively low seating position.

On the plus side, the interior is versatile and practical, providing good cargo space and decent space for four passengers. A fifth might squeeze in, but won’t like it. At least, the Patriot’s tall roofline makes entry/exit easy.

Seating comfort is less appealing, with front seats that fail to provide much support. Rear seats are somewhat stiff, feeling short on padding.

Noise and vibration become apparent underway.

Outward visibility excels, helped by the boxy body and plentiful glass. A rearview camera is now available on both trim levels.

Driving Impressions

Jeep Patriot scores well in a couple of areas but fails to impress in others. Maneuverability is excellent. So is the four-wheel-drive Patriot’s true Trail Rated ability. Otherwise, the driving experience is unremarkable.

A few years back, the Patriot improved considerably when the original CVT gave way to a responsive, smooth-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission. Now, three systems are available: front-wheel drive and a choice of two four-wheel drive setups.

Snowbelt residents who plan only mild or no off-roading are best off with Freedom Drive I, which includes a locking center differential and either a manual transmission or 6-speed automatic. Hardy off-roaders will be tempted by Freedom Drive II, which includes a Low range for true off-the-pavement activities. It’s a worthwhile system, but you must accept the CVT, which has the Low range built-in. Reflecting the traits of the worst CVTs, it’s short on responsiveness and suffers pauses reminiscent of a rubber band, accompanied by droning sounds.

A Patriot is especially useful for urban tasks: a joy to maneuver and easy to park. It’s also acceptable on the highway, or for modest off-roading on a budget. If you want more than the minimum, this Jeep falls well short on refinement and sophistication. Ride quality, while satisfactory, can become a little more active than in newer small-size crossovers.

For its size, the Patriot isn’t all that fuel-efficient. Thriftiest is the 2.0-liter engine with manual shift, EPA-rated at 23/30 mpg City/Highway with front-drive, followed by the 2.4-liter with automatic at 23/29 mpg. Pick that CVT-equipped Freedom Drive II package, and the estimate drops to 20/23 mpg City/Highway. Other variants fall between those estimates.

Summary

The Jeep Patriot is a dated product so it lacks the latest safety features and technology and is built on a structure that’s now 10 years old. However, it offers value, especially in the case of the front-wheel-drive model. Look for deals or wait for the next-generation version.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
