Exterior Styling

Retro Jeep lovers will adore the sophisticated mix of homage and forward-thinking design that the 2017 Jeep Patriot puts on display. Cues from the original Jeep Cherokee XJ and Jeep Wrangler TJ abound, especially in the vertical slot grill and wide-eyed headlights.

Boxy but charming cues form an overall angular body shape, offset by curving wheel wells and subtle bows and bends. Extensive body cladding indicates that the Patriot may be small, but it’s ready for any adventure.

Performance and Capability

The 2017 Jeep Patriot comes with a base 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that can create 158 horsepower or a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that upgrades to 172 horsepower. Owners also have a choice between a Continuously Variable Transmission, a 6-speed automatic, or a 5-speed manual. Ride quality is smooth and ultra quiet.

The 2017 Jeep Patriot can offer drivers easy access to true off-road capabilities, including a locking torque split function between front and rear wheels on the Freedom Drive I™ powertrain and full 4×4 capability with a true low range on the Trail Rated Freedom Drive II® models. Accessories like tow hooks and skid plates ensure that your Patriot can remain self-sufficient in tough situations.

On the trail, the Patriot is smooth, controlled, and rarely backs down from a challenge.


Jeep made the 2017 Patriot’s interior minimalist but comfortable, offering well-padded seats and a clean dash design sporting a modestly upmarket appearance. The boxy exterior dimensions of the Patriot suit its interior quite well, providing ample shoulder and headroom to both rows in a vehicle class otherwise plagued with imposing rooflines.

Interior volume overall is satisfactory for the segment, with 104.4 cubic feet of overall volume, 23 cubic feet of rear cargo volume, and 53.5 cubic feet with the second row folded down. Handy features like a fold flat floor and Jeep-branded accessories make carrying things in the 2017 Jeep Patriot easy and organized.

Other optional upgrades can create some fun and sun for Patriot owners, including a flip-down liftgate speaker system and a power sunroof.
