2017 Jeep Patriot Introduction


The 2017 Jeep Patriot might be dated, but it still offers good value. It’s a far better vehicle than the original Patriot. It might not be equipped as well as some of its rivals, but it’s a sensible package with real Jeep character and enough civility to be a good family vehicle.

The Patriot compares with mainstream crossovers like the Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester, or Toyota RAV4, and smaller models like the Subaru Crosstrek, Nissan Juke, or Mazda CX-5.

It doesn’t look much like the Jeep Compass, which Jeep markets as a more premium model, but beneath its sheetmetal the Patriot is basically the same, with a lower price and available stripped-down.

The Patriot will be redesigned for 2018, so for 2017 it’s unchanged. Base engine is a 2.0-liter four cylinder making 158 horsepower and using a standard 5-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). This engine only comes with front-wheel drive, which sort of defeats the purpose of a Jeep. If that’s all you want, there are better crossovers.

The other engine is a 2.4-liter four cylinder making 172 hp with that 5-speed gearbox or a 6-speed automatic. It comes with all-wheel drive.

The Patriot performs well in some crash tests, but scores a Poor rating from the IIHS in the small-overlap frontal crash test.

The 2.0-liter engine with 5-speed gearbox and front-wheel drive delivers an EPA rating of 23/30 miles per gallon City/Highway, or 26 mpg Combined. With the 2.4 liter, 6-speed automatic and all-wheel drive, mileage drops to 20/26/22 miles per gallon City/Highway/Combined.
