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.

To some, the Patriot will seem overly traditional-looking; yet to others it's straightforward, with the boxy design refreshing in a class of rakish rooflines.

From the outside, there's a lot to like, with proportions and sheetmetal that are boxy but not too refrigerator-like, as well as detailing that keeps it simple but purposeful. There's just enough softness and civility mated with lots of macho Jeep appeal and influences from the Wrangler and Liberty—including the Jeep slotted grille. Jeep hasn't messed with a thing on the Patriot's exterior, but its interior could have used more attention. It's passable from some feet away, but up close it still feels drab, with low-rent materials and an econo-car look.

On the inside, the down side up close is that there's still lots of hard, dull plastic; but from a few paces back, it's a sturdy, attractive cabin design, with some brightwork added in recent model years.

 

Conclusion

With a responsible, compact size and boxy styling that looks rugged but not overwrought, the 2013 Jeep Patriot fits in well almost anywhere.

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.
