The 2014 Patriot includes plenty of updates over the 2013 model, including a new transmission and a new Freedom Edition for those looking for some extra features.

What better time to announce updates to the patriotically named Jeep than the Fourth of July weekend.

This little model has plenty of Jeep image and even some of the capability of its bigger brothers via the available four-wheel-drive systems. Its boxy looks also house a roomy and versatile interior with fold-down seats and a wide tailgate.

The Patriot was the first to map out the mini crossover segment that is now exploding with new entries. The Hyundai Tucson. Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and the Subaru XV Crosstrek all compete for the same buyers.

Despite the low base prices, most of the volume for the Jeep Patriot comes from the better-equipped four-wheel-drive automatic models. How does little Jeep perform as both a lifestyle economy car and a light off-roader versus these rivals?

One look at the Patriot tells quite a bit about its origins and relatives in the Dodge Caliber and Dodge Dart family. The latest model carries over the exterior styling almost unchanged and looks quite dated. This Patriot arrived as a 2007 model year and shares the look of that era’s models.

The Patriot’s seven-slat Jeep grille is much more convincing than the cartoon-ish appearance of the Jeep Liberty. There’s more of the original Jeep Cherokee ’s boxy surfacing and charm about the grille face, the lamps and the fender housings. A little-known fact about the original 1984 Cherokee was that it carried styling by Guigiaro’s ItalDesign.

Some prominent new foglights show up for 2014 with an optional bright skid plate. Overall, the style of the Freedom Edition is the most current. It comes in red, white or blue colors that are all pretty rich metallic shades.

They pair nicely with the grey wheels and help the Patriot look more at home with Jeep’s pricier models.

The Patriot is clearly a compact vehicle in its dimensions but looks tougher with the optional Freedom Drive AWD configurations that raise its ride height by 1.5 inches. The Patriot’s classic looks are becoming an asset versus the ultra-modern face of the latest 2014 Cherokee .
