Jeep Patriot Summary

The Jeep Patriot was in production for a single generation, from 2007 to 2017, as part of a two-prong entry into the compact crossover market, alongside its sister car the Jeep Compass. The Patriot adopted more traditional Jeep styling cues and focused on on-road performance, unusual for a Jeep. Off-roading is in every Jeep’s veins though, and the Patriot maintains that heritage when equipped with Freedom Drive II, one of its two all-wheel drive options. Just keep in mind that this off-road prowess comes at a cost at the pump.
