Those needing a cheap way to travel off the beaten path might want to consider the 2011 Jeep Patriot.
The Patriot is a handsome little trucklet that is based on a car and delivers carlike fuel economy, but Jeep has engineered it to be able to have serious off-road chops.

Very responsive and fun to drive without using too much gas. The 2.4 engine has plenty of power and gets to speed quickly. The best part is my 6'3" body fits comfortably in the drivers seat. - Matt
For the money, I just don't think anything can compete with the new 2011 Patriot. - Tyler
It's a nice little SUV. Rides like a car on the streets but feels more like an SUV when it comes to riding on rough roads. - Unknown
