2010 Jeep Patriot Sport SUV

2010 Jeep Patriot Review

(2 Stars)  Better styling and options than Compass or Liberty

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Jeep Patriot is a much smaller version of the Grand Cherokee from the looks on the outside, but there are some other big differences including the price. The base price of the Patriot starts at only $15,365 which puts it in a totally different range of affordability than almost all other models from Jeep. The Patriot is an off road vehicle, but does not offer as much clearance room as some other Jeeps. This is one of the few models from Jeep that holds on to the very boxy look that has been historically thought of as "Jeep" styling. The design and add-ons that fill the interior of the Patriot make it much more inviting than other Jeep models. There are leather seat options, Navigation systems and more.

There are some trim levels that do offer lower quality parts interior covering, but for those who are not afraid to pay extra the inside of the Patriot can be very well equipped. Small, cute and very rugged the Patriot offers an exceptional value for anybody looking for a budget sports utility vehicle.
