PatriotHow the Patriot Earned its Trail Rated Badge (Video)

Looks like Chrysler Group is trying to take advantage of all the good reviews of the Patriot - they just released this video touting the Patriot's off-road capabilities and how it earned its trail rated badge.

Those trails were tame especially if you can go as fast as they did in the video. I guess the trail rated badge could just about be put on any vehicle judging from the video....my AWD vibe could be trail rated..heck im ordering me a badge right now, LOL..

So "Trail Rated" no longer means capable of completing the Rubicon Trail.
Trail Rated = Any trail (as long as it doesn't have any obstacles).
I still like the Patriot a lot better than the Compass.

I don't believe "Trail Rated" ever meant a vehicle could traverse the Rubicon Trail. Some of them could, but, it is/was some measuring yardstick that Jeep and the Nevada somebody uses to measure a Jeep's off road capability. If I read it correctly, they did both real time testing with vehicles and computer simulated off road driving, where the results could be repeated.

Looks like a Subaru could handle that course. I think it's the same trail as in the Compass video.
