The Jeep Liberty is the successor to one of America’s original compact SUVs, the Cherokee. An evolutionary departure from that earlier, more traditional sport-utility design, the Liberty features a large greenhouse, a high roof line and aggressive, flared wheel arches.

The 2011 Jeep Liberty comes with a four-cylinder, a 3.7-liter V6. Featuring lightweight aluminum components, it produces 210 horsepower and 235 pound-feet of torque. It is connected to a standard fully synchronized six-speed manual transmission or optional four-speed automatic, which transfers power to either two wheels or all four. The automatic has a special tow-haul button to adjust gear shifting for better efficiency when towing. When properly equipped, the Liberty can tow up to 5,000 pounds.
Both the Selec-Trac II and Command-Trac II four-wheel-drive systems are very well integrated into Liberty’s various systems, including traction control, Electronic Stability Program, hill-start assist, hill-descent control and available trailer tow package. Fuel economy for two-wheel-drive models is 16 miles per gallon in the city and 22 on the highway. Four-wheel-drive models achieve only slightly lower numbers, at 15 mpg city and 21 highway.
A 19.5-gallon fuel tank provides an approximate driving range of 389 miles. Available on Liberty Limited and Sport models is a Sky Slider roof, an expansive sunroof that is 3.5 times larger than a regular sunroof. A regular sunroof is also available. Other features available on the Liberty include rain-sensitive wipers, automatic temperature control, a six-speaker sound system and remote start.
