http://www.autobytel.com/jeep/liberty... The 2012 Jeep Liberty is perfect for those who are going to use it for off-road excursions. The Liberty is a Trail Rated 4x4 SUV that looks very rugged on the outside and provides some unique passenger comforts on the inside. This SUV has to contend with the Nissan Xterra, Toyota FJ Cruiser, and Subaru Forester which are all very capable in their own right. The 2012 Jeep Liberty has a base price of $23,395 with the top of the line Limited Jet Edition 4x4 model costing $28,795.
The 2012 Jeep Liberty is powered by a 3.7 liter V-6 engine that produces 210 horsepower and 235 lb-ft. of torque. The transmission is a 4-speed automatic. Fuel economy figures check in at 16 MPG in the city and 22 MPG on the highway. The Liberty has an advanced 4WD system called Selec-Trac II. This system closely monitors torque between the front and rear wheels and transfers power to those wheels that need it most. This is especially useful when road conditions become nasty. For off-road adventures the Liberty offers 4LO that helps with steep hills and rough terrain. The Liberty can also tow up to 2000 lbs.
The outside of the 2012 Jeep Liberty is very military in its design which holds true to the heritage of this vehicle. The classic but aggressive lines are hard and edgy which is what Jeep buyers are looking for. There are optional 20 inch polished wheels and a cool sky slider roof that exposes tons of light to the interior passengers when opened. On the inside the Liberty features front and side curtain airbags. This SUV can hold up to 5 passengers. The Comfort Seating Package is standard on the higher trim levels and features 6-way power adjustable leather seats.
