This is the best vehicle I have ever owned. I absolutely adore it! It is a dream to drive, handles extremely well with great visibility and features. It is dependable, rugged and stylish, all at the same time. It is an incredible value for the money.
Great car! Few Flaws
2010 Jeep LibertyAnna Marie Romano - Jacksonville, FL05/29/2016
High quality leather bucket seats. It feels very safe inside and very solid. It runs on a powerful 3.7L V6. Has a truck type body frame making the ride very smooth and quiet. The car also has a quiet transmission that switches gears very smoothly. This car is what a real jeep feels like!
The 2012 Jeep Liberty 4-door Limited initially appealed to us by its design. It seems to be a cross between the rugged Wrangler design and the softer Cherokee look. By softer, I simply mean the smoother, airodynamic features. The 2012 Liberty has a great front grill design and a very "Jeep" look, squared and simple. We find the vehicle comfortable on and off road, a definately rugged suspension, and fun to drive.
Jeep Liberty Overview
As a spiritual successor to the Jeep Cherokee (which returned in 2014), the Jeep Liberty has everything you would expect - it has good off-road capability, control, and utility. This five-passenger compact SUV is also affordable, keeping it ahead of the pack.
Jeep Liberty History
Debuted in 2002, the Jeep Liberty was the spiritual successor to the Jeep Cherokee and was continuously upgraded throughout its run. It received its first full redesign in 2008, which refreshed its appearance to give the Liberty a more classic Jeep feel. Since its cosmetic redo, the four-cylinder engine option was discontinued to leave the 3.7L V6 engine as the only available option.
How It Drives
As one of the few truly off-road vehicles in its class, this vehicle is best in situations that many other cars cannot handle well. Namely, slippery rock, mud, and snow are barely a challenge to the Jeep Liberty. In contrast, the Liberty is not fully refined on-road, though later editions and modifications to the suspension layout have made it better for highway driving and urban living than previous versions. On some higher trims, the interior is upgraded to be more comfortable for drivers and passengers alike.
Used Jeep Liberty Value
The Jeep Liberty, even in later editions, operates similarly to its original models. Most of its changes over the years were cosmetic. With the Jeep Cherokee revived, the Jeep Liberty is decidedly more affordable when shopping for used compact SUVs with off-road capabilities.
Jeep Liberty Standard Features
The 2008 Liberty is available with a choice between four-wheel drive and two-wheel drive. In recent models, the Jeep Liberty is equipped with a 3.7L V6 engine with either a six-speed manual transmission or an optional four-speed automatic. Otherwise, expect the same or equivalent features found in each compact SUV in its class.
