With additional length and width – offering more cargo room and rear passenger legroom – the 2008 Jeep Liberty charges into the model year with a new, more aggressive design and the same rugged off road capabilities of previous generations. Available in Limited and Sport trim levels – with your choice of two or four wheel drive – the Liberty comes equipped with a 210 horsepower 3.7-liter V6 with either a 4-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual transmission. The Liberty offers passenger capacity of up to five and a nice list of standard equipment.Read more Read less
The Jeep Liberty is all-new for 2008, with a more rugged appearance that borrows cues from the larger Commander and classic Wrangler models, along with a more comfortable and spacious interior design and a newly available Sky Slider full-length canvas roof. New suspension and steering systems also help improve ride and handling. The Liberty is still classified as a compact sport-utility vehicle, but front and rear seating space has been improved, and cargo length is also increased.
New off-road-oriented features; towing ability; improved interior.
Jeep has dropped prices on the Liberty for 2008, which, combined with the redesign and new features, makes it a much stronger value than last year's model. Among compact SUVs, the Liberty is one of the more rugged and trucklike choices, ideally suited toward light towing or more serious off-roading. The Sky Slider roof is also a good option for those who want the open-air feel of a soft top.
