2015 Jeep Patriot What's new for 2015? 
2015 Jeep Patriot

The Jeep Patriot trudges on for 2015 with a new paint color (Eco Green Clear Coat) that replaces Rugged Brown and with Garmin Navigation now available on the Latitude model. The formerly available cargo-area lamp that doubled as a removable flashlight has been replaced by a dome light.

A new 6-speed automatic transmission is now available on most models, although the dreaded continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is still roaming freely among models equipped with the Freedom Drive II option. Front-seat side-impact airbags are now standard on all trims.

2013 Jeep Patriot What's new for 2013? 
2013 Jeep Patriot

This close to the end of the platform's life cycle, there is little investment going into upgrades. For 2013, some software recalibrations give the Jeep Patriot a slight boost in fuel efficiency and a couple of new colors join the paint palette. Sport, Latitude and Limited are the trim packages.

Aggressively freshened in 2011, the 2012 Jeep Patriot offers four new exterior colors, along with calibration improvements to the CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). The retuned CVT improves launch acceleration and pedal responsiveness, while reducing engine noise.

The 2009 Jeep Patriot receives some interior improvements including a new instrument panel design, soft touch materials on the door and center console and increased sound insulation around the engine bay and floor pan.

The Patriot is the first car-based vehicle to earn Jeep's "Trail Rated" badge. That it's also pleasant on the highway and perfectly practical makes it a well-rounded seven-day solution.

About Jeep Patriot

The 2015 Patriot is the least expensive new SUV you can buy, and it's a Jeep to boot. That's the good news. Other aspects of this inexpensive 5-passenger Jeep are not so bright. It is aging, rather unrefined and not all that fuel-efficient compared to fresher crossover SUVs such as the Subaru Forester and Mazda CX-5. And while its starting price is tempting, be advised that a base 2015 Patriot wearing that sub-$18,000 tag lacks air conditioning, adjustable driver's-seat height and even power windows and power door locks. To get those features you'll have to pay extra, which diminishes the Patriot's value proposition. If there's any redemption, it's that a properly equipped Patriot with 4-wheel drive (4WD) offers decent off-road ability.

"The gas mileage is awesome..Better then the window sticker. I love the ride and all the extras. Sound system is great, as is the customer info center. I test drove several before gettting one that had plenty of pep, so I say "Drive what you buy". Hoping for snow, can't wait for the fun. If you are looking for 4 wheel drive with good mpg and a price that won't break the bank give the Patriot a drive. I'm glad I did."

"The absolute perfect vehicle to operate our service business in the rugged area of southwest Montana. Frequently traversing dirt roads, snowy roads and this vehicle performs excellent. For the costs, it is the world's best value. We haven't had any serious maintenance issues. It is a great rig to put our employees in and it conveys a good image for our franchise. Not too flashy, just perfect. The gas mileage is fantastic for an SUV too, averaging about 24mpg. It isn't big enough for my large family, but good enough for the gear and road travel we do for our business. I am surprised that there are thousands more of these on the road for the great price they are listed at."

"My wife and I spent about a year and a half looking for the perfect vehicle to purchase. After what seemed like hundreds of choices...we decided on this beauty. I own a 2008 Patriot Sport, with freedom driveII. Wether it is snow/ice on the roads, or knee deep mud on the trail, this "little jeep that could" will handle it. With about 30,000 extremely well maintained miles on it we have not had one single issue with the jeep. It is perfect for the campers, hunters, long travel, offroaders, and just plain carefree commuting in horrible weather."
