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 Patriot hasn’t changed much in the seven years since it was first introduced, and that’s a good thing. There's a lot to like—just enough softness and civility mated with lots of macho Jeep appeal and influences from the Wrangler and Liberty.

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. There's a lot to like on the outside, 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 never missed a thing on the Patriot's exterior, but its interior could have used more attention, with a look that falls to econocar mediocrity up close. They've added some brightwork in recent years, and the look remains sturdy and attractive enough, it's passable from some feet away, but up close it still feels drab, with low-rent materials, too much hard, dull plastic, and an econo-car look in general.

 

Conclusion

The 2014 Jeep Patriot looks rugged but not overwrought, and still fits in nicely, whether in the city or on the trail.

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.
