Generation Overview

The first and only generation of the Jeep Patriot was revealed in 2006 at the New York Auto Show, along with the Jeep Compass with the 2007 model year. Available with a 2.0L or 2.4L inline-four engine, it was billed as a more fuel-efficient option without compromising Jeep's reputation as an off-road leader. The Patriot saw a facelift in 2011, with smaller front headlights, removal of the Patriot lettering from the rear bumper in favor of a more traditional appearance and the Latitude trim level replaced the former Latitude X trim. The generation's last model year was 2017, at which point it was replaced by the second-generation Compass.

Reviews for 2016 Jeep Patriot

Fine car just terrible breaks.

I wouldn’t recommend carmax. I was given the car and found out it has squeaky breaks that sound worse than a school bus. I have taken it in now 6 times and nothing had been done to fix it. Carmax is the worst for customer service and also actual fixing of the car. They will say anything just to sell a car no matter the condition. I am beyond livid.


  • Seat Comfort: seats are fine


  • Braking: I received the car and a day later it started making a shrieking noise every time I touch the breaks. They have done nothing to fix it despite taking it in several times.

Fun Drive With Great MPG

The Patriot is roomy enough for a family of 4, fun to drive and wont kill your fuel budget. Bluetooth was easy to sync, no blind spots, handles great and can move when you need it to


  • Fuel Economy: 25+ MPG
  • Visibility: No issues with blind spots, great mirror coverage
  • Interior Space: I am 250 lb + with a teenage son and a 10 year old, backseat is plenty and cargo space is good for road trips

Reliable, Trustworthy, and Great to Drive

My Patriot (so far) has been through snowstorms, heavy fog, and downpours of rain- typical Kansas weather. I have never worried about how I would get somewhere- my Jeep has never let me down. I have always felt safe driving it. It is a sturdy vehicle with neat features that make me comfortable while driving it. Everything from a bluetooth and aux cord connection for my driving jam sessions to plenty of space for all of my gear.


  • Ride and Handling:
  • Reliability:
  • Weather Versatility:


  • Fuel Economy: It IS a Jeep- although the fuel economy is much better on this model than the older Jeeps, it still isn't as efficient as other SUV's.
  • Power: My Jeep isn't a V8 engine, so it takes a tad more time to accelerate. However, this adds to the fuel economy and it still has plenty of power to forge through bad weather and poor roads.
