Vote for the 2013 Jeep Patriot

Election week was a perfect time to be test driving the 2013 Jeep Patriot Latitude. No matter who you vote for, this is the vehicle for now and the future. 

The 2013 Jeep Patriot Latitude 4×4 is a perfect choice for rocky roads ahead. The 2013 Patriot  gets a cost-effective 23 miles per gallon on the model I tested but the Patriot gets up to 30 mpg highway depending on the model chosen.

With a price like $25,670 for the 2013 Jeep Patriot Latitude model I drove it won’t bust the budget. In fact, it is the best-priced SUV, starting at $15,955.

Good looks, inside and out. The 2013 Jeep Patriot Latitude had the rugged Jeep brand styling. The Patriot features aggressive exterior styling with a body-color seven-slot grille and distinctive trapezoidal wheel arches all reflecting an authentic design steeped in Jeep brand DNA. Lower Bodyside accent classing enhances the Patriot’s already robust off-road capable attitude.

Everything you need to know:

This value conscious car isn’t loaded with extras, but it does have an available Media Center 430N radio with Navigation by Garmin ™and available Sirius XM Travel Link ™ features real time gas prices, weather radar map, sports, traffic and movie schedules.

Like every woman I love cup holders. The 2013 Jeep Patriot has a lit border around the cup holders when it gets dark. Nice Touch.

I also loved that the gas display doesn’t just say half or one quarter full—it actually tells how many miles you have left. A much more useful fact.

When I clicked on what I thought ws the trunk opener, the engine started. I guess that is important in colder climates where the engine needs to warm up. There is good trunk space, but for a shortie like me, it was hard to close the trunk. 

My biggest criticism of the 2013 Jeep Patriot is that the seats weren’t very comfortable. They had multiple forward and back options, but the seats didn’t seem well cushioned. But then the kind of people who buy a car with off-road capabilities don’t suffer from the princess and the pea syndrome.

The award-winning Jeep brand has added more accolades to its long history of achievements, underscoring its promise to deliver vehicles synonymous with fun, freedom and adventure.
