2015 Jeep Patriot
The 2015 Jeep Patriot is considerably overshadowed by the bigger Cherokee and smaller Renegade models, significantly newer and better geared towards the burgeoning market for compact SUVs and crossover utility vehicles. That being said, it’s an interesting place to land. Even while the Patriot is bigger than the new tiny Jeep Renegade, the Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester, or Toyota RAV4—which directly compete against the Jeep Cherokee—are not nearly as huge as the Patriot is. On the other hand, the Compass lies between the two brothers, more like the Kia Soul or the Nissan Juke.
The Jeep Patriot was offered in 5 trim levels in 2015:
- Sport: Four Wheel Drive
- Altitude: 24 combined MPG
- Latitude: 21 combined MPG
- High Altitude: 23 combined MPG
- Limited: 6-Speed A/T
Jeep Patriot Performance and Fuel Economy
Aside from its superb looks, the Jeep Patriot hides a wealth of technological and functional features. A four-cylinder 2.0-liter 158-horsepower engine propels the 2015 Patriot. The World Engine four-cylinder 2.4-liter engine, which produces 172 horsepower, is an available upgrade. In addition to the five-speed manual gearbox, Jeep’s CVT2 six-speed automatic transmission is also available.
Each of the Fiat-Chrysler produced Patriot’s drive bays may be configured in one of three ways. In addition to the usual rear-wheel drive, Jeep’s Freedom Drive I is also available. For tough terrain and slippery weather, this setup provides a lot of versatility. Brake Traction Control and Electronic Controlled Coupling (ECC) monitor slippage and transmit power to the appropriate wheels in a loss of traction.
Additional features include an Off-Road mode and Hill Descent Control for Freedom Drive II. Off-Road Group gives you optimum capacity in snow, steep hills, mud, and up to a depth of 19 inches. The fully equipped Jeep Patriot proudly wears the Trail-Rated emblem. To achieve this coveted distinction for off-road performance, the Patriot had to pass five separate tests: traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation, and water fording.

Design, Comfort, and Quality
The Patriot, brother to Jeep’s gentler Compass, takes the best of the brand’s characteristics and compresses them all down to a city-friendly size. Slab-sided sides and a profile similar to those of previous Wagoneers and Cherokees can be seen in the front end. Some may think it’s overly conventional, while others may like the boxy design’s history, while others will love how the boxy façade allows for a large amount of useful room within. There’s a lot to appreciate on the exterior, with squared-off proportions and sheet metal that aren’t too refrigerator-like and basic but effective ornamentation. The seven-slot grille, for example, adds just the right amount of machismo while maintaining a level of politeness and sophistication.
There was nothing overlooked when it came to the Patriot’s external design by Jeep, but its interior design falls short of econocar greatness up close. Brightening up the usually drab interior has been done over time, and the result is still strong and appealing. However, when you get up and personal, you see low-quality materials with harsh, dull plastic. If you’re looking for a vehicle with a more luxurious cabin in a smaller compact, go no further than the Jeep Compass.
There’s nothing too fancy about the cabin of the 2015 Jeep Patriot, but it’s functional and well-organized. In contrast to its more costly brother, the Compass, the Patriot has benefited from lower-cost interior upgrades, making it a better buy. Cargo capacity is plentiful, with easy-to-reach rear seatbacks that can be flipped forward to make more room. With room for four passengers and a high roof, getting in and out is a breeze. Even if you can squeeze a third person into the middle seat in the rear, keep in mind that this is a little car. Comfort in the front and rear seats are lacking, with unsupportive chairs in the front and unpadded back seats.
When consumers purchase the vehicle, there should be a 2015 Jeep Patriot owner’s manual set containing all the required information for future maintenance, vehicle operation, and features. Wrapped in premium leather, this kit contains all addendum materials and covers topics such as:
While this list is thorough, the owner’s manual for the 2015 PATRIOT provides more operational suggestions to enhance the user experience.
