Overview: Priced from $18,690, the Patriot is the least expensive way you can strap yourself into a new Jeep—and also the most affordable vehicle with at least semi-serious off-road credentials. It has been living on borrowed time for the past few years, awaiting an all-new Renegade-based replacement, with one more model year in prospect (2017) while that development finally reaches full term. The Patriot is one of the last vestiges of the ill-starred Cerberus Capital Management chapter of Jeep’s corporate history, a vehicle developed on the platform that also supported the late and generally unlamented Dodge Caliber.
