Overview

What's New in the 2015 Jeep Patriot?

The 2015 Patriot is essentially unchanged for the 2015 model year.

Which Patriot is the Best?

Although the Freedom Drive II doesn't come cheap, it's the Patriot's clearest advantage over the competition. If off-roading is a pastime or necessity for you, consider trying this pumped-up Patriot on for size.

How Much Does a 2015 Jeep Patriot Cost?

The 2015 Jeep Patriot is available in three main trim levels: Sport, Latitude or Limited. The Altitude and High Altitude are special-edition models that occupy a middle ground between Sport and Limited.

The Sport ($17,690) starts with 16-inch wheels, fog lights, cruise control, a tilt-adjustable steering wheel and a 4-speaker audio system with an auxiliary audio input. Remarkably, air conditioning is not standard, nor are power windows or locks. But they can be added for a fee.

The Altitude ($19,585) adds the CVT, 17-in black aluminum wheels and glossy black accents but is otherwise similarly equipped.

The Latitude ($21,090) classes things up with air conditioning, power accessories, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with auxiliary controls, heated front seats (including driver height adjustment), reclining rear seatbacks and a 115-volt power outlet.

The High Altitude ($24,670) adds a number of extras, including a sunroof, gray wheels, a power driver seat and leather upholstery.

The Limited ($25,690) tacks on the 2.4-liter engine (optional on other trims), silver wheels, bright roof rails, automatic climate control and an upgraded sound system with satellite radio.

Specifying the Freedom Drive I all-wheel-drive system on non-Limited trims inflates the bottom line considerably, because it also requires the 2.4-liter engine. Freedom Drive II is available at additional cost and adds simulated low-range gearing, skid plates, an oil cooler and other off-road-oriented driving aids. Also available are a touchscreen infotainment interface with digital music storage, a navigation system, a USB port, Bluetooth and premium Boston Acoustics audio (with flip-down tailgate speakers).

Jeep Patriot Safety

Is the 2015 Jeep Patriot a Safe Car?

Standard safety equipment includes anti-lock brakes with 4-wheel discs on all-wheel-drive models but inferior rear drums on front-wheel-drive models (except Limited FWD), stability control and six airbags (front, front-side and full-length side-curtain).

The Patriot received four stars overall in government crash tests, including three stars for frontal impacts and five for side impacts. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Patriot its highest rating of Good in all crash-test categories except the small-overlap front test, where it downgraded the Patriot to Poor (the lowest rating of four).

Competition

2015 Jeep Patriot vs the competition

2015 Ford Escape -- The sophisticated Escape handles like a Focus on stilts, which is essentially what it is, and its technology offerings are top notch.

2016 Mazda CX-5 -- The CX-5 is arguably the most rewarding compact crossover to drive on pavement, and its fuel economy puts the Patriot to shame.

2015 Subaru Forester -- Roomier and more refined than the Patriot, the Forester offers standard all-wheel drive and an optional turbocharged engine.

Used Jeep Grand Cherokee -- If you poke around at enough Jeep dealers, you can find a lightly used Grand Cherokee V6 for the price of a well-equipped Patriot, and the larger JGC is a far better vehicle.
