(From Automobile.Com)

"This is what a Jeep should look like! As good as the Jeep Compass looked in the early sketches and then, souped up pre-production tuner influenced duds, it lost much of its credibility as a true Jeep when it showed up at Detroit with 15-inch skinny wheels and a droopy, sad-sack jowly face without fog lamps; not to mention its not Trail Rated."

"The Patriot, on the other hand, looks all Jeep and is proportionally closer to the Cherokees of yore than the ungainly Commander, but they all follow the two-box (and I do mean box, thats not just a fancy design term in this case) theme with upright vertical pillars, only the A-pillar showing a bit of rake. The seven slot grille and round headlights give a healthy nod to the Jeep brand image, and the matte metal-look bumper inserts recall military nuts-and-bolts Jeeps while somehow appearing stylish and slightly uptown."

Question: With the trail rated version of the Patriot and its "low" range capability, will it be "invited" to attend Camp Jeep or Jeep Jamborees? They usually require a "4-Low" gear? Since I'm not an expert on these technical questions, maybe someone who is will be able to answer.

A good review indeed! I think it will do well. I am anxious to see the MPG numbers.
