2017 Jeep Patriot

People who do not want to splurge on pricier jeeps will find the Jeep Patriot within their budget. For this reason, the 2017 Jeep Patriot largely appeals to families who want a reliable car at an affordable price.

Do not be disappointed when we tell you that the shape of the 2017 Jeep Patriot remains unchanged because the manufactures have compensated for it by adding more upgrades and features to this year’s model. If you think back to the earlier models of the Jeep Patriot, we think you would agree when we say that it was a disaster.

However, now, the manufactures have stuck with the design, making it a far more appealing crossover. Perhaps, this is why manufacturers may have decided not to play around too much with the shape of the car.
