2014 Jeep Patriot Limited 4x4 Review

This smart small SUV offers premium comfort in a capable yet thrifty package. Powered by an efficient 2.4-liter inline-4, the 2014 Jeep Patriot Limited 4×4 earns up to 27 mpg highway without sacrificing too much torque. An optional tow package allows the 2014 Jeep Patriot to haul as much as 2,000 pounds. Intelligent 4-wheel drive with hill start assist and hill descent control provides a sure-footed feel on slick city streets as well as in the mountains. Our Limited trim-level tester came equipped with smart features like keyless entry, a 40-GB infotainment system with voice command and stylish leather accents.

Warranty/Service: 3-year/36,000-mile basic limited warranty; 5-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty
