The Jeep Liberty for 2007 represents the best of both worlds; the off road
ability that Jeep is known for, and the on road behavior that comes in handy
when using the Liberty as a daily driver. The Jeep Liberty is very similar to
its more rounded modern looking Jeep Compass cousin, but the main difference
between the two is that the Liberty is trail rated. The only changes are
that the Jeep Liberty's Renegade trim has been discontinued for 2007.
The Liberty's long suspension travel does a good job of smoothing out bumps
and preventing it from bouncing around too much. Although some road
capability has been sacrificed for off road capability, the Liberty is tolerable
cruising down the highway or through town. Also the Liberty exhibits
considerable body roll around corners. The V6 provides good acceleration and
overall the Liberty is a sensational off-roader.
The Jeep Liberty has a standard 3.7-liter V6 and an optional automatic
transmission. Two-wheel or part-time four-wheel drive are available
for both trim levels, as is a full-time "Selec-Trac" 4WD system. For the
Sport trim level, a six-speed manual transmission is standard and a four-speed
automatic is optional. Properly equipped, the Jeep Liberty can tow up to 5,000
pounds. For fuel consumption the 2007 Liberty gets 18 mpg through the city
and 22 for the highway. The optional turbocharger is an advanced design
with variable-geometry vanes that deliver significant induction improvements at
both low rpm and high rpm, and at high altitudes.
The 2007 Jeep Liberty comes in two trim levels: Sport and Limited. The Sport
features 16-inch steel wheels, air-conditioning, full power accessories,
stability control and a six-speaker stereo with CD player. The more up level
Limited trim gets you amenities such as 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, a
six-way power adjustable driver seat and a leather-wrapped steering wheel

The Liberty's rear seats are comfortable and there is reasonable leg room and
head room for an adult. The Liberty offers a generous amount of cargo
space behind the rear seats. The theme of the Liberty cabin seems to be satin
aluminum accents and chrome-ringed, black-on-white gauges. There are a total of
31 cubic feet of cargo space available behind the Liberty's split-folding rear
seat and 69 cubic feet when that seat is folded down.
