Like any true Jeep, the Liberty shines brightest on the trail. My route included wooded trails complete with water crossings, rocks, mud and steep creek banks, all of which made it possible to evaluate ground clearance, engine braking, steering and traction. Our Limited Edition model sported the all-new 3.7L V-6 engine (a 2.4L I4 will be standard in the Sport model) backed by a four-speed automatic transmission and a Select-Trac transfer case. With the engine's 210 horsepower rating, and the transmission and transfer case calibrated to work in harmony with the V-6 in off-road conditions, power was never an issue. Its 3.7L automatic transmission boasts a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds, so if you can't fit your goods inside, the Liberty can pull them behind.
