Expert Quotes:

The Patriot has a number of uncommon options

The Jeep Patriot is available in base Sport and upmarket Limited trims

Outdoorsy Jeep types will find it an especially alluring option
Kelley Blue Book

Most reviews read by TheCarConnection.com praised the extensive list of options available on the 2008 Jeep Patriot.

There are two trim levels available for the 2008 Jeep Patriot: the base Sport and the more upscale Limited. The base model comes with important safety features like ABS, but also has low-rent items such as vinyl upholstery and 16-inch steel wheels. Edmunds calls the base Sport Patriot "pretty basic" and highlights the more upscale features available in Limited package such as 17-inch aluminum wheels, fog lights, privacy glass, and chrome exterior accents.

This year, all Jeep Patriot models including the base Patriot receive air conditioning as standard equipment. People looking for luxury features will want to note the less than enticing standard manual windows and locks as pointed out by Cars.com on the Sport Jeep Patriot.

The 2008 Jeep Patriot Limited adds a 115-volt outlet, power accessories, cruise control, and remote keyless entry to its list of standard equipment. In addition, as Edmunds reports, both the Sport and Limited trim levels can be optioned with such niceties as a six-disc CD changer and a Boston Acoustics premium audio system with satellite radio and flip-down speakers in the liftgate. Kelley Blue Book comments, "Outdoorsy Jeep types will find it an especially alluring option."

Among the "uncommon options" that Cars.com refers to in their review of the 2008 Jeep is the ability to order a removable cargo area dome light that serves as a handy flashlight and a chilled glove box. ConsumerGuide likes the Patriot’s rubber-coated floor since it’s “easy to clean, perfect for carrying dirty, messy cargo."

Edmunds specifically mentions that the 2008 Jeep's option list for the Patriot Limited includes a navigation system, skid plates, and even hands-free phone connectivity.

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.
