With a short lifespan of less than 10 years in production the Jeep Patriot came onto the market alongside the Jeep Compass.
They differed in style widely with this model having a much tougher appearance and the Compass looking more stylish and less aggressive.
Sharing the same platform as each other and also with the Dodge Caliber they were all the same truck, though targeting different groups of buyers.
Buyer could choose between having a four wheel drive chassis or a front wheel drive one installed depending on intended use.
First models were delivered to customers in 2007 with manufacturing taking place in Illinois, USA.
These early cars had the choice of a range of similar sized engines around the 2 litre mark available as either powered by diesel or gasoline.
Safety ratings weren’t too bad on the early models before the 2011 face-lift with the car falling slightly behind on rollover tests as is expected for an SUV.
After the face-lift though things seem to go south with many stars being knocked off the safety rating by the NHTSA body.
Eventually in 2017 the Patriot was discontinued with the Compass carrying on and taking advantage of the new larger market of crossover SUV buyers who were no longer so concerned with off-road capability.
