What is the most fuel-efficient and affordable off-road vehicle?
The Jeep Patriot Sport is the price leader among off-road-capable vehicles, and when we say off-road, we mean it. Any four-wheel-drive SUV can handle on-road snow and light off-road duty, such as a muddy, unpaved trail. With the optional Freedom-Drive II Off-Road Group, Jeep says the Patriot is "trail-rated" in five categories that cover traction, ground clearance, water-fording ability, suspension articulation and maneuverability that make it a true off-road SUV.
