The 2015 Jeep Patriot is a no-nonsense crossover from an automaker with a long history of making quality vehicles capable of going anywhere. While that off-road ability has fallen behind the practicality of city driving, the Patriot is still a very able SUV.
2015 Jeep Patriot design
The design of the 2015 Jeep Patriot is instantly recognizable as a Jeep. The big front grille, round headlights, long boxy profile and simple rear end just shout practicality and simplicity, in a good way.
The Patriot manages to hold its own against newer, sleeker arrivals in the crossover segment and that says a lot. That it looks just like the bigger Cherokee is no bad thing and the fact that is stands well on its own only adds to that.
Inside, the design is simple, uncluttered and all business. This is a family vehicle designed to be rugged and survivable. In that it delivers. This isn't a plush luxury SUV, this is a workhorse. Whether that's hauling the family or working, the no-nonsense approach is logical without alienating any particular market. That's a hard balance to make.
Engine and transmission
There are two four cylinder engine options for the 2015 Jeep Patriot. There is a 2.0-liter that produces 158 hp and 141 lb-ft of torque and a 2.4-liter that gives 172 hp and 165 lb-ft of torque. These are tried and tested motors that can be found elsewhere in the Jeep lineup.
A five-speed manual is standard on lower trims while a six-speed automatic is an option. Front wheel drive is standard, but as this is a Jeep, all-wheel drive is an option, as is Freedom-Drive I or II.
The 2015 Jeep Patriot comes with three trims, Sport, Latitude and Limited. The Patriot Sport offers the 2.0-liter engine with manual box, steel wheels, cruise control, split rear seats and CD audio. There is the option to add air conditioning and power accessories as well as alloy wheels, keyless entry and body colored exterior trim.
The Patriot Latitude adds those options plus heated front seats, leather steering wheel with audio controls, adjustable driver's seat and reclining rear seats.
The Patriot Limited adds the 2.4-liter engine option with automatic transmission, leather interior, climate control, power driver's seat, trip computer and other interior upgrades.
