“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 highly coveted awards are given to new vehicles – both non-luxury and luxury – with the lowest projected ownership costs for the first five years of ownership. The awards are given based on data that Kelley Blue Book has collected, based on the 5-Year Cost to Own data for new cars for the initial five-year ownership period. In considering the 5-Year Cost to Own awards, Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com observes finance and insurance fees, depreciation, state fees, maintenance and repair costs, and expected fuel costs for all new models.
Jack R. Nerad, the executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com, is impressed with Jeep’s continued domination of these awards. “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 Nerad. “Not only is it the most affordable Jeep on the market, but it’s also one of the least expensive sport/utilities, period.” In addition, he spoke to the Wrangler Unlimited’s unique ability to fit into many categories, making it perfect for a variety of customers. “Classifying the Wrangler in one category is tough since it can serve many different needs, and there truly is nothing like it. Wherever you fall, the 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has something for you without draining the bank account.”
