2010 Jeep Liberty Renegade 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 4A)
I have owned the 2010 Jeep Liberty for about 8 months and have found the negative press given to this vehicle to be just subjective preferences. The first knock by professionals is the power...well this Jeep has plenty of power and in fact is very zippy and torquey at low end. It gets up and scoots off the line but does lose some punch at 50 and above....but what is the speed limit? This Jeeps power is more than enough. The handling? love it! It is stable on the highway, fun to drive in town and has answered every task I have given it off road including 15 inches of snow mud combo and very rugged terrain. The interior cleans up well and while not fancy remember..its a Jeep.
Rugged good looks, sporty feel, compliments I get on its looks. Off Road capabilities including the skid plates. Great low end torque. Oh, cant forget...the wife loves it.
A bit more ground clearance from the factory.
An option to lift more than 2.5 inches which will allow bigger tires for those who wish to be a little more hard core.
Its hard to like the gas mileage on this V-6 however a 4 cylinder would not be enough power. Maybe a more fuel concious more powerful V-6 would be the ticket.
