2014 Jeep Patriot Overview

New/Notable:
  • Pair of four-cylinder engine options
  • FWD crossover platform, but is still offered in a trail-rated 4WD version
  • Originally planned to be discontinued after 2013, but carries on one more year
The 2014 Jeep Patriot combines with its platform mate, the Compass, to form the most affordable pair of vehicles in the Jeep lineup. The Patriot offers great value and retro Jeep styling.

Instead of the sleek exterior look that Jeep has gone for of late, the Patriot invokes earlier Jeep models by looking 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, standard 16-inch steel wheels, round halogen headlights with fog lamps, and huge black door mirrors.

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 large 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, a great addition for BBQs and parties.

The 2014 Patriot offers identical engine options to the 2013 model. 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 and comes with the same transmission options. The standard Patriot comes in front-wheel drive, but true to form, 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, even though it rides on a crossover platform.

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 which put it firmly in the middle of the compact SUV segment.

The Patriot performed well in crash tests, earning a Top Safety Pick award 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.
