Jeep Patriot – A True Gem
When you shop for a vehicle, there are likely a lot of factors you take into consideration. You want something that offers safety and reliability first and foremost. You may also look for something that can handle different weather conditions. Perhaps you want something that can handle everyday driving as well as rough terrain driving. Fortunately, you can get all of that and more with the Jeep Patriot.
A Bold Package
A quick look at the Jeep Patriot might have you frothing at the mouth for a closer look. In truth, it certainly delivers a great first impression. Just like the Jeep Cherokee, the Jeep Patriot offers a rugged look that says, “I can go anywhere and do anything.”
Upon closer inspection, you quickly realize that the Patriot does not offer the same off road capabilities as the Cherokee. Instead, the Patriot is more of a smaller sized crossover SUV. However, that is not to say that it can’t handle rough terrain and the occasional off road adventure.
In fact, the Patriot offers all of the respectable features of an off road gem. It offers plenty of ground clearance to ensure that you can make your way over those sharp rocks and other obstacles that often get in the way. It also boasts four-wheel-drive capabilities combined with some much needed skid plates so that you can get to all of those hard-to-reach destinations.
When you get right down to it, the Patriot is bold enough to go where most small crossover SUVs will not go. That being said, it is still, for all intents and purposes, an SUV. Therefore, it is meant to spend the majority of its time on the road rather than off of it.
Fresh and Fantastic
When compared to many other make and model crossover SUVs, the Jeep Patriot is still relatively new. It is still within its first generation, which began with its production in 2007. Despite its newness, the Patriot is fresh in many ways. For instance, its small stature should not fool you into thinking that it lacks capability.
In fact, it is its smaller size that enables you to reach certain off road locations that many larger off road vehicles cannot get to. It is also easy to maneuver, whether on the road or off. Because of its small stature, the Patriot boasts envious gas saving features. You might be surprised to learn that this little beast can get as much as 30 mph on the highway.
As long as you are willing to overlook the lack of a trendy interior design, the Patriot offers plenty of incredible interior features. For instance, it does not disappoint when it comes to cargo room. You can pack up plenty of gear for a weekend long camping trip complete with the whole family in tow.
Both the front and rear seats provide ample room for you and all of your friends and family. In other words, you can get out and go more often without everyone complaining about a lack of legroom. Finally, you can enjoy a Jeep made vehicle that offers plenty of bells and whistles in a vehicle that is great as an everyday driver and a fun, off road monster.

Steve S. – Jeep Patriot Owner
"The Patriot feels solid and well built. I have no problem reaching freeway speeds or traveling over the mountain passes in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. It has very comfortable front seating with excellent head and leg room. I opted for the air conditioning and the Power Value Group which includes; Body Color, Door Handles, illuminated Entry, Speed Sensitive Power Locks, Keyless Entry, Automatic Headlamps, Power Heated Fold-Away Mirrors, Power Driver 1-Touch Windows, and Body Color Liftgate Applique. I was also able to negotiate a great price on this smaller SUV. Best value for your money in this segment of the SUV market."
Brandi – Jeep Patriot Owner
"I love My Jeep. I purchased a 2016 Fully loaded Jeep Patriot for a great affordable price. I am a single mom with 2 daughters. Lugging around all of their dance, cheer, Snowboards, Friends, etc. has been hassle free. Plenty of room for everything & still not cramped. Love the Lumbar support & Heated seats. Moon Roof, Sirius XM radio, Remote Start & 4 wheel drive are all pluses. The only thing I wish it had was a back up camera. Easy to drive."
