2003 Jeep Liberty Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
As a previous Wrangler owner, I was a bit skeptical of the Liberty's off road ability. When I took it off road for the first time (the same day I bought it) although it was just a dirt road with some washboard type terrain, the suspension handled it like a smooth paved road. When I did get a chance to try the low range (4-Lo) with the long suspension travel and its great articulation, it handled anything from deep ruts to decent sized rocks. The highway performance is really good for a SUV, the 3.7 liter V6 has plenty of power to get the job done.
