Used Jeep Liberty
The Jeep Liberty is a compact SUV that first appeared in 2002 under the Chrysler brand and was last updated in 2008. If you're looking for a smaller SUV that can still handle rugged terrain with ease, this is it.
First generation Jeep Liberty vehicles were designed to replace the Jeep Cherokee, which had been discontinued, as the middle offering between the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee models. Ironically, it would be the revival of the Cherokee that would ultimately replace the Jeep Liberty in 2014. Like the Cherokee, the Jeep Liberty was made available in two- and four-wheel drive editions, as well as Sport and Limited trims. Sales figures for the Liberty reached their peak in 2002, and declined steadily until 2011 where there was a short-lived uptick. One of the main reasons for the lackluster numbers could be because the Jeep Compass and Patriotâcrossover SUVs with better fuel economyâboth launched in model year 2007 and directly competed with the Liberty.
The second generation Jeep Liberty featured a design and mechanical overhaul for 2008. The newer versions sported sharper, squarer edges. Under the hood, Liberty no longer offered the 4-liter engineâonly a V6. Traction and stability control became standard on all models, further supporting the off-road performance of the Liberty. An independent front suspension helps the Jeep Liberty excel in off-road situations where traditional vehicles might struggle.
While it offers exceptional performance in less than ideal conditions, used Jeep Liberty vehicles aren't especially known for amenities unless you opt for the Limited trim package, or optional entertainment package with Sirius Satellite Radio, navigation and a 30GB hard drive. If your routine has you frequenting dirt roads or less refined roadways, the Liberty could definitely fit your needs.
