2017 Jeep Patriot vs. 2016 Jeep Wrangler Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Patriot than in the Jeep Wrangler. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Patriot and the Jeep Wrangler.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Patriot as you will with the Jeep Wrangler, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Jeep Patriot is a better financial choice over the Jeep Wrangler, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Jeep Patriot and the Jeep Wrangler have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Patriot is much slimmer than the Jeep Wrangler, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Jeep Patriot, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jeep Wrangler.

Drivetrain
The Jeep Patriot has much lower torque than the Jeep Wrangler, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Jeep Patriot has the same turning radius as the Jeep Wrangler, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Jeep Patriot will do just as well as the Jeep Wrangler, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Patriot has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler.

Utility
The Jeep Patriot offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Wrangler, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Jeep Patriot as you will in the Jeep Wrangler.

Warranty
The Jeep Patriot comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Wrangler.
