Fun and handles light offroading - 2015 Jeep Patriot
By ryry2 - August 24 - 12:41 pm
I have a 2015 Patriot Sport with the Altitude package. The dealership was great and my patriot looks amazing all blacked out with the factory tinted windows and 17" all black wheels. Even though it is only FWD it can handle dirt/gravel roads no problem. That includes offroading as long as there isn't any deep mud or large boulders. So far I have had no build or mechanical issues whatsoever. Some people complain about the CVT but I love it, especially paired with the autoshifter. You can get better than listed mpg with proper driving and shifting with the autoshifter.
Pro review wildly inaccurate. - 2015 Jeep Patriot

To start, the "pro" review is shockingly inaccurate. The vast majority of 2015 patriots are have Auto transmissions as Jeep has tossed the CVT. The 4x4 comes with a competitive 2.5L engine. 5yrs ago Jeep interiors may have been cheap, but the 2015 interior is great! love the illuminated cupholders. Great features at a great price, the latitude has heated seats, reclining rear seats, audio controls, 115V outlet, remote start, ht. adjustable seat and much more. I got 30mpg driving from denver to WY and back. That's a 4000ft elevation gain. With 4WD you have the benefit of being in 2WD 95% of the time and getting better gas mileage than AWD cars and better 4wd performance whine in 4wd.

Peppy n' Fun 2 Drive - 2015 Jeep Patriot

The prosumer review was all negative. Blah blah! I got into a near the bottom of the line model and still impressed. The 2.4 when mated to the 5M is fun to drive. Much quicker than a Mazda 5 and Rav4. Best part is for what I paid I am not hesitant to take it off the road. Taking a $30k Subaru or Rav4 offroad? NO way. Another thing I like was availability of the manual trans. The others don't offer that. Every other sensible suv out there has gone up-market the Patriot stays true. Manual everything if you want it that way. It's lighter and faster. So name your poison!
