Taking a Peak at the Affordable Compact 2015 Jeep Patriot


The 2015 Jeep Patriot is a no-nonsense inexpensive utility with supplied equipment, which could carry you where the majority of small crossovers cannot.

The 2015 Jeep Patriot has become fairly overshadowed by the bigger Cherokee and smaller sized Renegade versions. However, the Patriot continues to be an effective budget-minded choice and a bit more conventional choice.

The Patriot 2015 comes in Sport, Altitude, Latitude, High Altitude, and Limited trims. Standard equipment on the Sport includes tilt steering, fog lamps, cruise control, rear-seat heater ducts, illuminated cup holders, tinted glass, roof side rails, and an auxiliary input. Also included as standard is Hill Start Assist and electronic stability control with roll mitigation. Test these features out by driving the Jeep Patriot yourself at the Chapman Chrysler Jeep dealership.

Upgrades for 2015 consist of the substitution of the detachable headliner-mounted flashlight with a new regular dome lighting, and the added choice of Garmin GPS navigation on Latitude versions. A new Eco Green Clear Coat shade takes the place of Rugged Brown in the exterior-color options.

In recent years after its release as a 2007 model, Jeep has developed the Patriot into an improved vehicle and a better value. Today, it provides an intelligently-sized interior that integrates macho Jeep lines with adequate gentleness, as well as civility to allow it to be useful family transportation.

The boxy, trim and strong exterior produces a remarkably convenient interior. The interior features decent cargo space and rear seatbacks that fold forward conveniently to make extra space. Getting in and out is hassle-free, due to the high roofline with lots of front and back headroom. However the seating placement might be lower than you may expect. The interior layout is very well done.

The base 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine produces 158-horsepower. Top Limited 0versions and all versions outfitted with all-wheel drive, are available standard with a 172-hp, 2.4-liter engine. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard, while the 6-speed automatic transmission can be purchased across the range. The CVT is packaged with Freedom Drive II. The new automatic provides a low first gear for faster takeoffs, a high top gear for relaxed driving.

EPA fuel-economy scores are up to 30 mpg on the highway, but they go down to the 20-mpg level should you go with the Freedom Drive II bundle. Therefore the capability trade-off sends it down around Wrangler fuel mileage figures, without the level of ability as a Wrangler.

Since air conditioning is NOT standard, this allows the Patriot to come in at a base price of just below $17k, which includes destination fees.
