The 2017 Jeep Patriot is built and priced to appeal to budget-minded shoppers who want a compact SUV suitable for around-town chores and light off-road duty. Having undergone only minor updates since its introduction for the 2007 model year, the Patriot is essentially still in its first generation. And although its design carries some traditional hallmarks of the Jeep brand, the Patriot is beginning to look a bit more dated than some of its stablemates.
Since the Patriot is scheduled to be replaced early next year, there really are no changes to the existing model. It retains the classic boxy exterior design that from the beginning has made Jeep vehicles identifiable from a mile away. In addition to making a style statement, this shape gives it a fairly roomy passenger compartment and, with the rear seats folded, a decent amount of cargo space.
The interior is relatively basic compared to those of its closest rivals. A mild reboot for 2011 improved the cabin somewhat, but in standard trim, it still surrounds occupants with a lot of hard plastic surfaces. On the plus side, these are at least easy to clean. The entry-level Sport models don't come with such conveniences as power windows or air-conditioning, although these are standard on higher trim levels. And buyers who want to add some extra comfort can opt for upgrades such as leather seats and premium sound systems.
Although not designed for serious work in the dirt, the Patriot does boast better off-road capability than many of its competitors. If you want to spend more time in the wilderness, you can add the Freedom II Off-Road Group, an optional package that toughens up the compact SUV with such features as skid plates, larger wheels and tires, an oil cooler and hill start assist.
The Patriot's standard powerplant, available only in the front-wheel-drive version, is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 158 horsepower and 141 pound-feet of torque and comes mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. An optional choice is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that puts out 172 hp and 165 lb-ft of torque. Available transmissions include a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and a six-speed automatic.
EPA-rated fuel economy for the base front-wheel-drive Patriot with the 2.0-liter engine and the manual gearbox is 25 mpg combined (23 city/30 highway). Opting for four-wheel drive, the larger engine and the CVT lowers the rating to a 21 mpg combined (20 city/23 highway).
The Patriot is available in the base Sport model and the slightly better-equipped Sport SE. Up the line are the well-optioned Latitude, the 75th Anniversary Edition and the High Altitude model. Whatever your preference, let Edmunds help you find the best 2017 Jeep Patriot to suit your needs.

Vehicle Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Review All the professional reviewers trash this car but most of them must not have bothered to drive it. I got the manual transmission for the better fuel economy and it got 25 mpg on the first tank with half highway and half small town driving. Not bad for AWD - beats the old Subaru that died after only 160k miles hands down. Here in the Northwest everyone drives Subarus, I call this the Subaru alternative. Fit and finish both inside and out are excellent. Very solid feeling on the highway - feels like a much larger vehicle, yet very maneuverable in the city. Wind noise is minimal, you do hear the 4 cylinder a little when you put it through its paces, stock tires are terribly noisy. These Goodyear tires rate near the bottom in every category at TireRack, Jeep must have gotten them for free! I got a car that listed at $24,500 for $19,100. It has all the features you need and expect in these times - plus a few - and was $5000-$10,000 less than a similarly equipped Toyota or Honda. A good value in my book! Professional reviewers say they are not reliable, but when I looked at the details for the 2015 it was below average or way below average for repairs in every category. My 6 foot teenager is amazed by the room in the rear seat, says its more than our Dakota crew cab! Not new and not sexy, but solid. After 7200 miles I have not had a single problem or item needing attention from the dealer. We have taken this AWD/4WD vehicle on the worst Idaho forest roads (5 mph) and it performed and handled beautifully! It does not have low range, but is geared low enough already with the manual transmission to have no problems with very low speed rough rocky roads.
