Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com has named the 2015 Jeep® Patriot and the 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited winners of its 5-Year Cost to Own Awards.
For a third consecutive year, Jeep Patriot has been named the winner of the lowest 5-Year Cost to Own award in the Compact SUV/Crossover category, while the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has earned the lowest 5-Year Cost to Own award in the Mid-size SUV/Crossover segment.
“Winning these two significant awards from Kelley Blue Book is a tremendous honor and significant achievement for the Jeep Brand, and particularly for the 2015 Jeep Patriot and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited,” said Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand. “The awards reinforce the exceptional value that Jeep vehicles deliver to customers throughout their ownership experience.”
The 2015 5-Year Cost to Own Awards honor the new vehicles and brands (luxury and non-luxury) with the lowest projected ownership costs, based on Kelley Blue Book’s 5-Year Cost to Own data for new cars for the initial five-year ownership period.
“The Jeep Patriot wins our 5-Year Cost-to-Own Award in its segment year after year because it’s an SUV with a careful eye on value,” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com. “Not only is it the most affordable Jeep on the market, but it’s also one of the least expensive sport/utilities, period.”
“Classifying the Wrangler in one category is tough since it can serve many different needs, and there truly is nothing like it,” Nerad added. “Wherever you fall, the 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has something for you without draining the bank account.”
When considering its 5-Year Cost to Own awards, Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com takes into consideration depreciation, expected fuel costs, finance and insurance fees, maintenance and repair costs, and state fees for all new models.
