2013 Jeep Patriot Overview

The new 2013 Jeep Patriot offers great value and retro Jeep styling. Rarely before has someone been able to get so much car for so little money.

The 2013 Patriot shares a platform with the Compass, but instead of a sleek exterior looks a bit like a box with wheels. While the Compass looks like a smaller version of the new Grand Cherokee, the Patriot looks like the older version from the 90’s with boxy sides and sharp creases. The Patriot also gets Jeep’s classic front grille, sixteen inch steel wheels, round halogen headlights with fog lamps, and huge black door mirrors. For a cost, larger alloy wheels can be ordered, as can several roof racks and chrome trim pieces.

The interior is similar to the exterior, squared off and straightforward. There are plenty of soft-touch surfaces, a radio/CD player, air conditioning, and a huge cargo area. Cloth seats and 60/40 folding rear seats are also standard. There are several available options, including a Boston Acoustics stereo with Uconnect, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, leather seats, satellite navigation, and multifunction steering wheel. Also offered is a pair of flip-down speakers in the liftgate, great for BBQs and parties.

There are two available engines on the Patriot. The base engine is a 158-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 141 pounds-feet of torque that is paired with a five-speed manual or a CVT. Also available is a more powerful, 172-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder that makes 165 pounds-feet of torque paired with the same transmission options. The standard Patriot comes in front-wheel drive, but since the Patriot is still a Jeep, a pair of four-wheel drive systems is optional. The more robust four-wheel drive system even helps the Patriot to earn “Trail-rated” designation.

Fuel economy varies based on engine/drivetrain choices, but expect the Patriot to return 20-23 mpg in the city and 23-30 mpg on the highway.

The IIHS awarded the 2012 Patriot (the same car) with an overall “Good” safety rating, the highest possible mark from the IIHS. It comes standard with four airbags, traction control, antilock disc brakes, electronic roll mitigation, and integrated crumple zones. Available safety features include front side-impact airbags and hill-descent assist.
