The 2014 Jeep Patriot isn't going to impress you with its fuel economy--despite the impression that it's small and frugal. Fuel economy ratings are 30 mpg at best, and they dip to the low 20s if you want 4WD and especially the Freedom Drive II package. If your reaction is that you might as well get a Wrangler at that thirst, well...yes...we agree.
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).
