Pull trigger on '09 Liberty Rocky Mountain/'10 Liberty Renegade or wait for 2012?
Should I pick up an '09 Liberty Rocky Mountain Edition/'10 Liberty Renegade or wait for the new 3rd generation liberty coming out in 2012? I never buy new and don't trust the first model year so I would be looking at a 2013 model year purchased in 2014 (used). What do you guys think? Hold out for the 3rd generation liberty or pick up the best version of the current KK?
Well that all depends...theres talk of the Liberty replacement being a car based CUV...so in that case, Id say no way. I think the current model has the best bodystyle, and I believe you can even get the 4.0 v-6 now. On the other had, the first gen did offer a manual and the diesel version would be a nice find...
The Lib 2010 and 2011 comes only with the 3.7 v-6 for the U.S. only. It is pretty reliable engine, it's basically a 4.7 minus 2 pistons. AllPar.com has a nice write about it. Canada and overseas the Lib is called the Cherokee and 2.8 Diesel is available for it.
Jeep is talking about a redesign for the Lib for with 2013 or 2014. There is just a lot of speculating right now.
