Under the classic square Jeep exterior of the 2015 Patriot is a modern, compact crossover, but is still has plenty of the ruggedness you’d expect from Jeep. If you are shopping for a car in the Greenville, TX area, visit Greenville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, and check out the full lines of all 4 brands, with something for every budget and need.
The 2015 Kia Soul is boxy and compact just like the Patriot, but otherwise it’s a normal compact car, lacking the essential Jeep qualities that make the Patriot so unique
No matter which of the 2 available motors you choose for your Jeep Patriot, you’ll get more power than the comparable Kia. The base Jeep motor is a 2.0 liter with 158hp, compared to the 1.6 liter Kia motor with just 130hp. Choose the optional motors and the Jeep has 172hp, compared to the Kia’s 164hp.
Both of these boxy utility vehicles give you plenty of room inside, but the Patriot has several cubic feet more passenger space than the Soul. The Jeep uses this space to give everyone in the car more headroom, plus the rear seat gets better legroom and hip room than the Kia. If you don’t have enough cargo room inside, the Patriot can tow a trailer weighing up to 2,000lbs with the factory tow options; the Kia Soul does not have any tow rating at all.
Of course, the Jeep Patriot is no rock crawler or mud buggy, but it does offer all-wheel drive, and off-road oriented options. The Kia Soul is front wheel drive only with no off-road pretensions. Click off the right option boxes and the Patriot will get you where no front-wheel drive economy car would dare go, with available all-terrain tires, skid plates, low range gearing and more.
One of the best features of the 2015 Patriot is the tough, handsome, Jeep good looks, which hide a practical and economical vehicle underneath. Greenville CDJR provides great service from our handsome staff, to the communities of Farmersville, Rockwall, Commerce, and Garland, TXView Inventory
