2007 Jeep Liberty Review

The 2007 Jeep Liberty is available in Sport ($22,025), Limited ($25,660), and Latitude ($24,685) models. The Liberty is powered by a 3.7 liter V6 with 210 horsepower available as a manual transmission with six speeds or an automatic with four speeds. The manual returns an estimated 18 mpg city and 22 highway with the automatic registering 17 and 22 on a fuel capacity of 20.5 gallons.

The vehicle has adequate capacity for five occupants with head room measuring 40.7 inches with 42.1 rear. Leg room is 40.8 and 37.2 respectively. Cargo volume measures 69 cubic feet and the Liberty can tow as much as five thousand pounds.

All Liberty models come standard with a comprehensive array of air bags deploying at multiple stages for the protection of the driver and front passenger. There are systems in place to delivery greater stability during situations requiring extremes of steering as well as those to detect roll overs. (Air bags in the curtain position are an available option.) For its impressive package of safety features the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration awarded the Liberty a rating of five stars for its ability to withstand impacts from the side.

The 2007 Jeep Liberty includes a standard audio combo playing across six speakers. Upgrade options include a changer in the dash capable of accommodating six discs and a navigation system via GPS (not available on the Sport). Drivers may also select an Infinity Premium Sound System that includes controls positioned on the steering wheel.
