The Jeep® Liberty has remained a leader in the mid-size sport-utility vehicle (SÚV) segment since its introduction in 2002. The capable and popular mid-size SÚV gives off-road enthusiasts and owners their own sense of personal freedom and capability that defines the Jeep brand.
For 2011, the Jeep Liberty is available in three models - Sport, Renegade and Limited. Renegade was introduced mid-way through the 2010 model year, and is equipped with features that position it between Sport and Limited with an emphasis on off-road equipment. Renegade boasts a premium, rugged appearance with standard class-leading capability features, including skid plates, tire pressure monitoring (TPM), Hill-start Assist (HSA) and Hill-decent Control (HDC), unique color fenders, fascia and headlamps. Inside, the Renegade includes a premium instrument panel with an electronic vehicle information center (EVIC) and a leather steering wheel with controls.
All Jeep Liberty models are now available with new color offerings: Bronze Star, Blackberry Pearl, Bright White Clear and Deep Cherry Red Crystal Pearl.
Also new for 2011, all Liberty models feature a new steering wheel with standard controls for radio, EVIC, cruise control and Úconnect® phone. Three new Media Centers are available in the Jeep Liberty, including:
•AM/FM/CD/DVD/MP3 and auxiliary jack with 6.5-in. touch screen and 30 GB hard drive
•AM/FM/CD/DVD/MP3 and auxiliary jack with 6.5-in. touch screen, 30 GB hard drive and Garmin navigation

The Jeep Liberty remains true to its legendary 4x4 heritage by offering two Jeep Trail Rated® four-wheel-drive systems – Command-Trac® II and the all-new Selec-Trac® II. The Liberty features independent front suspension with rack-and-pinion steering and a five-link rear suspension.
The Liberty's exterior takes on a rugged, classic Jeep look that captivates and broadens its consumer appeal. Inside the Jeep Liberty offers cargo and storage space, and seat comfort. Jeep's Sky Slider™ full-length open-canvas roof is an industry exclusive and gives the Liberty that 'have fun out there' open-air Jeep brand experience. Remote start, memory seats, mirror and express up/down windows are part of the available features and options.
The Jeep Liberty is designed to appeal to customers who are looking for Jeep 4x4 capability as well as comfort and convenience. It is targeted to young couples and new families, as well as professional, young singles between 30 and 40 years of age, balanced male to female. Jeep Liberty owners balance day-to-day responsibilities with their passion for adventure as well as the outdoors. They are athletic, and pursue activities that combine their various interests with their active lifestyle.Source - Jeep
