Expert Quotes:

23 mpg city, 29 highway (2.0, manual); 23/28 (2.4, manual); 23/27 (2.0 CVT); 21/27 (2.4 CVT); 22/28 (4WD manual); 21/26 (4WD, CVT); 20/23 (4WD, CVT Off-Road Package)
U.S. EPA





The 2011 Jeep Patriot is certainly a more fuel-efficient pick compared to serious, more truck-like off-roaders, but as a city grocery-getter it's not all that frugal; EPA city ratings range from 20 to 23 mpg, while highway ratings can range from 23 to 29 mpg, depending on whether which transmission you choose and which drive system you get. Models with the Freedom Drive II package are the least efficient, with ratings of just 20/23.

If you're comparing the Patriot with a more carlike hatchback or wagon model and are just planning to get front-wheel drive, you could probably do better; but the four-wheel drive version, even with its lower mpg numbers, stands as one of the greener choice for those who need to do true (but occasional) trail crawling. 

Conclusion

The 2011 Jeep Patriot looks frugal next to traditional off-roaders, but as a commuter it's not all that green.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
