What a great car!!

by Francis from St Louis, MO | January 26, 2020

This car has been a dream so far. They do not make cars like this anymore!! SUVs are totally built like mommy-cars now, and this Patriot really ticked the boxes for what I wanted. Only thing I want that this car doesn't have is the backup camera and screen for navigation/radio...

We love our Jeep! Thank you Dick Haevare!!

4x4 and it will go through any kind of weather Michigan can throw at it. This vehicle is loaded and the Stereo I'd phenomenal! It has great pick up too! Go see Augie at Dick Haevare in Richmond, Michigan and you'll leave a very happy and satisfied customer. We've had this lease for almost 3 years and look forward to dealing with Dick Haevare again!

Typical Jeep, ultra reliable & very comfortable

This SUV has tons of room, excellent ride quality, great looks, and I love the styling. Such a great car for a family like mine. The styling of the Altitude package adds a very sporty flare to this Jeep. Awesome on gas so it makes the perfect commute vehicle.

2017 Jeep Patriot Overview


The 2017 Jeep Patriot is a compact SUV that shares its wheelbase and many features with the Compass. This year, the 5-passenger Patriot remains largely unchanged.

Two trims are available: the Sport and Latitude.

The only substantial difference between the Patriot and the Compass is their exterior styling. While the Compass is more rounded like a modern crossover, the Patriot has a more rugged appearance with high sides and sharp angles at each corner. Front fog lights and 16-inch steel wheels come standard. Skid plates, tow hooks, and larger 17-inch aluminum wheels with all-terrain tires are optional.

There are two 4-cylinder engine options for the Patriot. Both the Sport and Latitude trims are powered by a standard 158-hp, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that is mated to a 5-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Also available is a 172-hp, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder paired with a 6-speed automatic or the CVT. Front-wheel drive is standard, but with the 2.4-liter equipped, two 4-wheel drive (4WD) systems are available. The more off-road-capable of the two 4WD systems is the Trail Rated 4WD system, which meets rigorous off-road standards for traction, water fording, maneuverability, articulation, and ground clearance.

Inside, the Patriot’s cabin ranges from sparse to well-furnished to keep the base price very low. It is one of the few vehicles we can think of that still does not have air conditioning or power windows/locks as standard equipment. But it does offer standard satellite radio and Bluetooth calling (no audio), which is a little strange. Interior options include automatic climate control, leather upholstery, navigation, heated front seats, and a 6.5-inch touchscreen.

The Patriot earned a 4- out of 5-star overall crash test safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Standard safety features include antilock brakes, six airbags, and electronic stability control. A rearview camera and automatic headlights are also available for added safety.
