Tested vehicle: 2008 Jeep Patriot Sport 4-door 4wd with standard front and rear head curtain airbags and optional front seat-mounted torso airbags

The Jeep Patriot was introduced in the 2007 model year. Seat-mounted torso airbags for front seat occupants became standard beginning with 2014 models (they had been optional in earlier models). Front and rear side curtain airbags were standard in all model years.

The side impact crash test ratings also apply to Jeep Compass, a vehicle similar to the Patriot but with a different roofline, beginning with 2007 models.
