Jeep Liberty Summary

The Jeep Liberty is an SUV firmly in the old-school mould. Built from 2002 to 2012, it’s more truck-like than today’s car-based crossovers, with four-wheel drive making it an ideal companion for going off-road. A four-cylinder engine is standard in earlier models, but from 2008 onward, we recommend looking for a V6 engine and plenty of grunt. It might be heavier and less fuel-efficient than its competition, but the Liberty is a great mid-size choice for those who need an added dash of ruggedness and towing capability.
