The 2016 Patriot drops the top-line Limited trim, leaving just the base Sport model and better-equipped Latitude.

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.

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 2016 Patriot stakes its claim as being the least expensive new SUV you can buy, and a Jeep to boot. That's the appeal of this 2-row, 5-passenger sport-utility vehicle. But in just about every other aspect, Jeep's aging entry-level model lags rival compact- crossover SUVs. The Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Subaru Forester and even its own siblings, the smaller Jeep Renegade and larger Cherokee, are more refined and far fresher than the Patriot. No doubt the 2016 Patriot's roughly $18,000 starting price is enticing, but base models are so basic they lack air conditioning and even power windows as standard. While the Patriot can be equipped with 4-wheel drive for off-road capability, the higher cost of doing so erodes this model's value proposition.

"Jeep is well known for off road capabilities and overall the patriot will do the job off road. I recently traded in my patriot for a wrangler. I liked driving my patriot and only had a complaint about the quality of certain things in the car such as the weather molding coming undone after 6 months. Little things like the radio would randomly act up and cause minor headaches. Although I generally liked my patriot the most alarming thing is how horribly these patriots hold their value. Upon wanting to trade I was told my Jeep had depreciated over $9,000 and had to trade in with negative equity. They had over 20 patriots on the lot and only 2 wranglers. Simply put I think if you can afford a little higher payment it is worth investing in a wrangler. The resale value stays extremely strong for wranglers and I personally just love owning a wrangler! Although the patriot makes a great family car for a cheaper initial price tag."

"It is a perfect settle for someone like me wanting the Grand Cherokee. You sacrifice a few luxury features, but they are put in differently with the Latitude X. Love this car!!!"

"I got my 2009 jeep patriot about 2 months ago and i love it. It runs real good and so far no problems I got it when it had about 47000 miles on it and now has over 50000 miles. It is good in the snow and ice too. The only downfall is that the engine is a 4 cly and not a 6 cly but that is ok. I plan to put a towing package on it soon so I can tow light loads and I do not doubt its ability. Overall its a excellent little suv."
