2010 Jeep Liberty Renegade

I agree that when Liberty first came out it was kind of a woman's Jeep (I mean, my grandma drives one). The first time I drove this Liberty, while exiting the parking garage, I was told by the gate attendant, "That is the ugliest Liberty ever, sorry man!" I disagree. I see it as more of a blank canvas. As it is, I liked the two-tone gray with matte black hood. The interior was well done, and the seats were unexpectedly comfortable.

Now the creative director in me takes over. I could see myself buying this Liberty with some added accessories. First, the Liberty would need a lift kit from ProComp or Fab Tech, with a nerf bar or Dee-Zee Side Steps. Next, I'd ditch the factory wheels for a color-complimentary FUEL D505 Gauge wheels in Matte Black. I'd replace the front bumper with something along the lines of a "Stealth Base Front Bumper" from Road Armor. With these items, I'd be ready for some adventure on the trails and around town.

I had an 03 Liberty, and I loved everything about it EXCEPT the mileage. Frakkin terrible. If Fiat can get Jeep up into the 30s+ I'll buy another jeep. But for now, I have to drive my Honda and keep dreaming of fuel efficient Jeeps.
It seems to me that the fuel mileage on this vehicle is terrible. My wife's 04 GC with the 4.7 V8 gets 20.4 on the highway and around 14 in town with more room and comfort. I hope future Jeep, Chrysler and Dodge products get the benefit of all the good things Fiat has to offer.Mercedes sure raped them and scrapped them in a hurry. Maybe some entity will return the favor to MB sometime in the near future.
