2015 Jeep Patriot Exterior

The 2015 Jeep Patriot is just the right size for cities. Boasting a Wrangler-like front end and slab sides that are reminiscent of older Cherokees, the Patriot maintains its boxy design. It’s the simple details that really make the 2015 Patriot stand out and recognizable as a Jeep. New for the 2015 model year, Eco Green Clear Coat has replaced Rugged Brown as an exterior color.

2015 Jeep Patriot Interior

The 2015 Jeep Patriot isn’t as nice on the inside as it is out. Some brightwork has been added, making the interior look sturdy and somewhat attractive. Hard plastic makes up most of the interior. Despite the materials, entry and exit is easy enough and there’s plenty of room in front and back for passengers. Rear seats flip forward, increasing the amount of cargo space available for large loads.
