2013 Jeep Patriot Values
Largely unchanged for 2013, the Jeep Patriot is a compact crossover available in FWD or 4WD drivetrains. The Patriot can be equipped with two different engines; a standard 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 158 hp/141 lb-ft of torque and an optional 2.4-liter 4-cylinder that produces 172 hp and 165 lb-ft of torque. Transmission options consist of a 5-speed manual and a CVT, enabling fuel mileage within an EPA estimated range of 20 mpg city to 29 mpg highway. Off-road driving is capable due to skid plates and 4WD lock. Features include 17-inch wheels, halogen headlamps, heated seats, leather trim, touchscreen navigation, liftgate speakers, premium sound, and fold-flat seating. Safety is advanced airbags, comprised of electronic stability control (ESC), electronic roll mitigation, anti-lock braking (ABS), emergency braking assist (BA), traction control (TCS), electronic brake force distribution (EBD), and tire pressure monitoring (TPMS).

The Patriot gets a bump in fuel economy for 2013, giving the vehicle a rating of 30 mpg on the highway. A "Freedom Edition" package is also new for 2013. Though it is primarily an appearance package featuring exclusive 17-inch wheels and several star decals, Jeep has also made sure to back up the name. For every 2013 Freedom Edition Patriot sold, Jeep will donate $250 to various military charities.
Interior and cargo space; maneuverability and parking ease; safety features; tech options; off-road ability plus fuel economy
The Patriot is an unexpectedly capable city car, combining a boxy, rugged-looking traditional Jeep appearance with car-like handling, good outward visibility, an economical powertrain, an interior that's comfortable for four adults and a city-friendly small-car size. The drivetrain and ground clearance, combined with an available Freedom-Drive II off-road package, makes for respectable off-road capability as well. Although the base model is basic, it's quite a bargain for a vehicle that includes all the essential safety equipment; and for those willing to option-up, there are more high-tech options than is typical for a basic sport-utility. Plus the Patriot achieves some of the best fuel economy numbers in its class.
