Here at Palmen of Racine, we have seen a large amount of 2014 vehicles hit the lot recently. But one that seems to fly under the radar is the 2014 Jeep Patriot. We could just sit here and tell you how good the vehicle is, but it would be more helpful for everyone if we provided a useful vehicle comparison. So, here we present the 2014 Jeep Patriot vs 2014 Subaru Forester comparison.

The two vehicles are actually very similar in several areas. For instance, the fuel mileage numbers are close. The Patriot gets a slight edge here in highway MPG by hitting the 30 mark. The Forester doesn’t get beyond the 20s here. And while they are actually close figures, every MPG matters when taking the family on a road trip.

Another similarity is the actual engines offered. Both models feature the availability of two four-cylinder engines. The Subaru does have a turbo engine available, but the extra horsepower will cost you some fuel efficiency. But, being a Jeep, the Patriot offers some outstanding off-road capability for a small crossover. This is true when all passengers are in place as well, as the two front and three rear passengers will all be able to get where they are going. For actual luggage capacity, the Patriot does offer slightly more space at 35.5 cubic ft of cargo space.

In appearance, we think the new Jeep Patriot is a slam dunk when compared to the Forester. Plus, the rugged, yet capably ride offered in the Patriot makes it a great choice. The improved acceleration on the 2014 version of the Patriot is enough to seal the deal.

When it comes to the 2014 Jeep Patriot vs 2014 Subaru Forester, the final decision is always yours. But to help it, Palmen Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Racine is offering up test drives of the new Jeep. Try it out in person and see what you think!
