2008 JEEP LIBERTY
All new for 2008, the Jeep Liberty offers two Trail Rated four-wheel-drive systems -- Command-Trac and the all-new Selec-Trac II. On-road ride and handling have been improved with the new independent front suspension, five-link rear suspension and rack-and-pinion steering.
The exterior has been redesigned and takes on a more rugged look. Inside, cargo and storage space increases and seat comfort improves. The new Sky Slider full-open canvas roof gives the Jeep Liberty an open-air experience. Remote start, rain-sensing wipers, memory seats and mirrors, and express up/down windows are added to the vehicle's list of available features and options. There are two models -- Jeep Liberty Sport and Jeep Liberty Limited.
The 3.7-liter SOHC V-6 engine provides the 2008 Jeep Liberty with 210 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 235 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm. Two transmissions are offered: a six-speed manual transmission and a four-speed automatic transmission.
Fuel economy has been improved and now achieves about 16 miles per gallon city and 22 mpg on the highway.
A full range of active and passive safety systems are offered. These include Electronic Stability Program, Electronic Roll Mitigation, All-speed Traction Control, Brake Assist, advanced anti-lock brakes, rain sensing wipers, Tire Pressure Monitoring, and side-curtain airbags.
