Thanks in part to its car-based structure and a full roster of safety features, the 2011 Jeep Patriot is a very secure pick among smaller utility vehicles. Under the previous federal crash tests, which tended to be more generous, the Patriot earned a mix of four- and five-star test results. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awards the Patriot with 'good' scores in frontal and side tests. Roof strength testing, which the IIHS has started to conduct over the past year, also yields a result of 'good,' and overall the Patriot is an IIHS Top Safety Pick.

Overall, the list of standard safety features in the Patriot is particularly strong for the price; standard items include electronic stability control with roll mitigation, front side airbags, and side-curtain bags. Models with four-wheel drive add off-road brake traction control and hill descent control.

The 2011 Jeep Patriot should make the cut for those seeking a safe, compact, off-road-capable vehicle.

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.
