The Jeep Liberty is a compact SUV produced by the Jeep marquee of Chrysler. The Jeep Liberty was introduced in
2002 model year as a replacement for the Jeep Cherokee. The Jeep Liberty is built on a unibody-on-ladder-frame
construction, which adds stiffness to its ride and handling, and enhances its off-road capabilities. The first
generation Jeep Liberty featured three trim levels: the Limited, Renegade, and the base Sport. Each model was
available with either 2WD or 4WD. In 2007 the Jeep Liberty Renegade trim was replaced with the Latitude. The
first generation was powered by a 2.4L straight-4, 3.7L V6, or a 2.8L straight-4 turbo diesel.
In 2008, the Jeep Liberty received a complete redesign with a more boxy and off-road look. The four-cylinder
engine was dropped from the Liberty’s offerings. The only engine available currently is the 3.7L V6.
The current Jeep Liberty has two available models: Sport and Limited. The 2009 Jeep Liberty was relatively
unchanged from the 2008 models. The Jeep Liberty received stiffer rear axle shafts and returned springs, shocks,
anti-roll bars, steering gear valve, low rollback brake calipers, revised brake pedal ratio, and the four-speed
automatic was made standard.
