Expert Quotes:

distinctive Jeep styling
Edmunds

the Patriot got a new front fascia with a new grille and foglamps, new rear end, and new side cladding, and the muffler is now painted black...but in all honesty, it would take a Patriot fanatic or someone with a great eye for detail to see the difference.
Motor Trend

The improved cabin, combined with styling tweaks, new wheels, and a raised ride height for models with 4WD, help the Patriot convince buyers that it is a faithful reinterpretation of the long departed and much loved Jeep Cherokee.

The Jeep Patriot remains a boxier, chunkier companion to the Compass; both models share most of their underpinnings with the Dodge Caliber but take aim at quite different crowds—with quite different styling being one of those key differences.

From the outside, the Patriot's design is purely utilitarian. The boxy, chunky look fits well next to older Jeep models like the Cherokee and should age well over time; we also like it far better than the closely related Compass, even considering the 'mini-Grand Cherokee' refresh Jeep gave the Compass for 2011. The combination of round headlamps, a version of the traditional Jeep seven-slot grille, and the squared-off, rugged cues isn't much different this year, though Jeep has extended the front and rear fascias somewhat lower, which helps accent the wheel arches.

Inside, the Patriot is also very purposeful and simple. Some hints of brightwork added over the past couple of model years have spruced it up from the purely drab it had originally been, but there's still a lot of hard, dull plastic up close. At a few paces back, it's an attractive, sturdy-looking cabin, though. 

Conclusion

With chunky, utilitarian styling, the 2011 Jeep Patriot has an almost timeless appeal that urbanites and off-roaders alike might appreciate.

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.
