|2017 Jeep Patriot Review|
2017 Jeep Patriot - It might resemble the square shaped, truck like Cherokee of yore, yet the Jeep Patriot is an altogether different creature. It's dated up against adversaries including the most recent Cherokee and the somewhat little Renegade stopped over the Jeep showroom however the Patriot might be justified regardless of a look if esteem is one of your fundamental needs.
We consider the Jeep Patriot underneath normal in many classes, rating it a 4.7 out of 10, yet its low cost and brassy identity make it worth thought if basic transportation is what you're after.
For 2017, the Patriot's lineup is to a great extent unaltered as the little hybrid anticipates a full overhaul one year from now. The 2017 Jeep Patriot is accessible in Sport, Sport SE, 75th Anniversary (despite the fact that last year was the brand's 75th birthday), Latitude, and High Altitude trim levels.
The Patriot arrives in an interesting center ground for hybrids between standard models like the Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester, or Toyota RAV4, and a portion of the littler models, for example, the Subaru Crosstrek, Nissan Juke, and Mazda CX-5. The Patriot is likewise basically indistinguishable to the Jeep Compass, beside its outside styling. Jeep positions the Compass as a somewhat more premium model, yet there the distinctions are absolutely corrective.

While the first Patriot was something of a fiasco think uproarious, lazy, somber, and entirely undesirable Jeep has discovered approaches to improve this hybrid a far, all the more engaging vehicle. Today, its sensibly estimated bundle consolidates macho Jeep lines with enough delicate quality and class to make it down to earth family transport. It may not be the most current or best-prepared, but rather its esteem is difficult to deny.
The Patriot's square shaped, trim, intense outside yields a helpful inside with great payload space and back seatbacks that flip forward effortlessly to make more space. We've discovered passage and exit simple, on account of the tall roofline, with a lot of head room front and back in spite of the fact that the one amaze is that the seating position is lower than anticipated, with the dash high and wrapping and the rooftop rails particularly thick.
The construct motor in light of the Patriot is a 158-strength, 2.0-liter inline 4 mated to either a 5 speed manual or a constantly factor transmission (CVT). The 2.0-liter motor is just offered with front-wheel drive and isn't exceptionally prescribed.

Choose the four-wheel drive Patriot and you'll net a 2.4-liter inline-4 that puts out 172 hp mated to either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed programmed unless you include the Freedom Drive II bundle to a four-wheel-drive Patriot. That bundle carries with it slope plunge control, slide plates, tow snares, and a couple of other rough terrain treats and in addition the CVT. That bundle may sound engaging sprouting 4x4 fans, yet its incorporation of the CVT cuts down drivability on roads and interstates with its elastic band-like reactions and a by and large uncivilized manner. The 6 speed programmed is a later expansion to the Patriot lineup and it works outstandingly well in this application.
The Patriot was dealt with to an inside facelift in 2011 that enhanced things, yet that was the greater part 10 years back. All models have average front seat room, yet raise travelers won't have a ton of space for extending. What's more, even with all alternatives heaped onto a High Altitude, the peer and feel inside is more about toughness than extravagance.
Given its old plan, it is not an enormous amaze that the Patriot does not have a portion of the more propelled wellbeing alternatives regularly found from opponents today. There's no impact evasion tech accessible keeping in mind the Patriot has performed well in some crash tests, a "Poor" rating in the IIHS' little cover test is upsetting.

Base Patriot Sports are inadequately prepared; you'll need to pay additional for ventilating and power windows. But at the same time it's among the slightest costly vehicles out and about today, which might speak to those on a strict spending plan.
In base arrangement with front-drive and a 5-speed manual transmission, the Patriot returns 23 mpg city, 30 expressway, 26 consolidated. With all-wheel drive, the bigger 2.4-liter, and the programmed, those numbers plunge essentially to 20/26/22 mpg.
