KK might be getting the 4.0 option.

Little Birdy told me some 4.0 Liberty's have scooted down the line at Toledo North Assembly Plant. (TNAP)

yup 263hp i believe, the 3.7 is too under powered for the Liberty IMO, We took our 2010 Limited on a 12 hour drive south to GA from MI, damn thing downshifted every chance it got, sometimes even downshifted 2 gears while in cruise just to keep movin at the proper speed.

With the 2011 GC getting a Pentastar V6 it wouldn't make sense to keep making the 3.7 just for the Liberty. They might not have been able to make enough 4.0's to match production of the Wrangler and all the other vehicles that use the 4.0.

Maybe. Im just tired of the Wrangler getting the shaft when it comes to whats under the hood. The lack of a decent engine is why I didnt buy a new one over this summer. And until the option of a V-8 with a manual shows up Ill keep rolling my '00.

This could also be a way to get rid of those W5A580 transmissions a little bit quicker.
