Model News

The Jeep Liberty benefits from many small changes for 2009.

The Liberty's ride has been improved thanks to a revised suspension setup and improved braking. Automatic headlights are now standard across the lineup, while one-touch up/down front windows are now a part of Limited models, as are improved interior upholstery surfaces. SIRIUS satellite radio is now standard on the Sport.

Deep Water Blue Pearl exterior paint replaces Modern Blue Pearl, and Sunburst Orange Pearl is an optional color. The 6-speed manual transmission has been dropped, leaving only a 4-speed automatic.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Jeep Liberty represents a strong, smart purchase in the compact SUV segment. Among the class, the Liberty is very rugged and truck-like, ideally suited toward light towing or serious off-roading. The Sky Slider roof is also a good option for those who want the open-air feel of a soft top.


Model Highlights

<< MODEL OVERVIEW >>

The 2009 Jeep Liberty derives its power from a proven 3.7L V6. It makes 210 horsepower and 235 ft-lb of torque, with power put to the wheels through a 4-speed automatic.

The Liberty is available with rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, both in Sport or Limited trim. Two four-wheel drive systems are available, and both are "Trail Rated." Command-Trac is a part-time system, while Selec-Trac II is a more sophisticated system. The Liberty has impressive approach and departure angles, good ground clearance, and sturdy hardware that is well suited for off-roading. Hill descent control, an electronic aid useful in descending steep slopes off-road, is standard on four-wheel-drive models, while hill start assist allows a smoother, safer launch when climbing a steep, slippery slope. The anti-lock braking system also has a "Rough Road" mode oriented toward unpaved surfaces.

The Liberty does not lack in terms of standard equipment and options. Sport models come well equipped with air conditioning, power accessories, satellite radio and many other common conveniences. Limited models step up to larger alloy wheels, fog lamps, heated mirrors, steering wheel audio controls and an upgraded audio system.

Several comfort and convenience options are available for those who want to appoint the Liberty more luxuriously. A Sky Slider roof--a full-length canvas arrangement that peels away to open up the entire roof to the sky--is an especially notable option. Other examples include remote start, a rear parking-sensor system, rain-sensing wipers and memory seats.

Another key option is the MyGig Multimedia Infotainment System, which integrates audio, navigation, and entertainment functions and also includes a Bluetooth hands-free interface. The system includes a 20-gigabyte hard drive that can store up to 1,500 songs or a combination of songs and images. There's also a built-in voice memo recorder. The navigation functions include real-time traffic information from Sirius satellite radio (which is also available with the system).

Safety features abound on the Liberty. Automatic headlights are standard, as are stability control with roll mitigation and anti-lock brakes with electronic brake assist, dual front airbags and side curtain airbags. A trailer sway control system is available for improved stability when towing.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
