2013 Jeep Patriot Fuel Economy

7.0
Fuel Economy

While the 2013 Jeep Patriot looks like a small, economical, city-friendly vehicle in many respects—and one powered by four-cylinder engines—you should take a careful look at the window sticker and fuel economy figures before you make your final decision.

Fuel economy ratings for the Patriot now range up to 23 mpg city and 30 mpg highway (that's for the five-speed-manual model, which gains 1 mpg highway for 2013).

As an off-road capable small SUV, the 2013 Patriot is surprisingly thirsty.

Otherwise, gas mileage ranges from slightly disappointing down to mediocre. Models with the Freedom Drive II package are the least efficient, with ratings of just 20/23. And it all depends on your perspective here; compared to serious, more truck-like off-roaders, the Patriot could be seen as one of the more frugal picks—especially if the Patriot could do the job instead of, say, a Wrangler or Xterra.
