Preview: 2008 Jeep Liberty

ON SALE: NOW / $22,000-$27,000 (est.)
For 2008, Jeep launches the second-generation Liberty. If it too closely resembles its corporate cousin, the Dodge Nitro, it at least looks more like a Jeep ought to look than its soft-road siblings, the Compass and the Patriot. Two off-road-ready four-wheel-drive systems are available, and the interior is bigger than before. The standard powertrain, a 210-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 mated to a six-speed manual, has not impressed us much in the Wrangler, where it also resides. But for those looking for a proper Trail Rated Jeep that won’t break the bank, the new Liberty might be just the ticket.
