CAPABILITY AND POWER

NEW 4WD SYSTEM RULES THE ROAD
Introducing Selec-Trac II, the most advanced four-wheel-drive (4WD) system in its class, now exclusively available on the all new 2008 Jeep
® (1) ®

Liberty. When in 4WD AUTO mode, the always-active 4WD transfer case provides continuous, optimum traction that effortlessly conquers rocks, snow, ice, mud and anything in-between. When traction loss tries to rear its nasty head, Selec-Trac II identifies the situation and immediately sends torque to the wheels with the most grip. It’s Jeep brand Trail Rated capability through and through. Selec-Trac II offers a unique two®

wheel-drive mode, an efficiently strong feature that perfectly pairs with dry pavement. Hill Start Assist (HSA) is new and standard, too. Working to help Liberty reach the highest heights, HSA will momentarily hold brake pressure as you climb, fighting vehicle roll back and eliminating the need for two-footed driving in many off-road situations. The available Hill Descent Control (HDC) assists when Liberty comes down the mountain. Active in 4LO when the HDC button is depressed, it mimics the mighty Wrangler Rubicon’s 4LO crawl ratio using automatic braking, allowing the driver to smoothly descend hills in a slow and controlled manner.

THE 2008 JEEP LIBERTY INCLUDES A LIFETIME POWERTRAIN LIMITED WARRANTY. No deductible. See dealer for a copy of limited warranty and details. Non-Transferable. Not available on certain fleet vehicles.
®

The standard 3.7L V engine produces a robust 210 hp and 235 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm, with a generous dose of V6 power at the engine low-end that provides more pull when the going gets tough. engine’s

The n new and optional Selec-Trac II offers BEST-IN-CLASS 4WD performance with re its real-time traction response. This exclusive system is constantly active and adju adjusting to road conditions and your individual driving style, delivering the optimum c ap a capability called for at every moment. No wonder it puts all other 4WD systems in its cl class to shame.

SKY SLIDER

THE BIG, OPEN SKYWAY
Look up and out. The view is wide open and free. The day’s bold sun, the stars of the night, clouds, trees, buildings and birds — everything seems closer. Your world feels more alive. It’s “ Wow” times 10 every time you get behind the wheel. Introducing the all new Sky Slider roof, Jeep Liberty’s industry-exclusive full-length, fully retractable roof. With one simple touch of
TM ®

a button, the optional Sky Slider roof automatically retracts to give you that special one-of-a-kind Jeep brand open-air experience. Sky Slider is Wrangleresque in its appeal, ultra-fresh in its distinctive design. Take one look at the Sky Slider roof and you won’t be surprised to learn that this exclusive feature has the largest opening in its class,
(1) (1)

offering a massive 33- x 60-inch window to let you see, unencumbered, straight into the upper atmosphere. An anti-trap safety system immediately sends the Sky Slider roof into auto-reverse if an obstacle is detected during operation. The Sky Slider roof opens front to back exposing both rows of seating, and back to front revealing only the second row, or any position in between. There’s no better highway to take you on an exhilarating scenic tour of your world and the sky beyond.

Detects most obstacles. As with all electronically controlled systems, care is advised.

The Sky Slider roof can be gathered fully forward, or fully rearward, or partially opened to any position in-between. The roof is integrated into the vehicle’s body via a reinforced safety cage-like frame consisting of 10 lightweight aluminum crossbars that help maintain structural integrity and add an element of protection. The reinforced nylon fabric nests into a specially designed weather-strip seal that’s purposefully created to virtually eliminate wind noise when closed. Factory installation ensures optimum fit, finish and function.

TESTED AND RE- TESTED

Our professional Jeep brand mudsplashers were charged to take the new Sky Slider roof through the muddiest, snowiest, iciest gauntlet imaginable. What fun they had, spraying dirt in Sky Slider’s track, dousing it with salt water, whipping it with extreme wind and rain, piling it with snow and ice. And at the end of the day, after taking Sky Slider beyond two lifetimes of use that included 19,000 opening and closing repetitions, our testers gave it kudos all around. So go ahead. Jump in your Liberty with its Sky Slider roof and feel free to have fun out there.

RIDE AND HANDLING

WELCOME TO A WORLD-CLASS RIDE
The benchmark was raised: create a new road to adventure that’s comfortably accessible. And so, the all new 2008 Jeep Liberty climbs to these
®

lofty heights with design and engineering developments that never compromise its renowned strength, agility and capability. The result: a bigger, stronger, sure-footed Liberty destined to lead its class. The details: A wheelbase that’s 2 inches longer and a track that’s 1 inch wider help to create a smoother, more stable ride. New independent front suspension and five-link rear suspension provide a smart blend of riding comfort and nimble handling. Front and rear stabilizer bars help balance tire loads, adding to Liberty’s outstanding on- and off-road performance. New power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering impart confidence with precise, advanced vehicle control.

LET’S FACE IT.

Delivering a world-class ride sometimes takes a bit of doing. We’re talking about “anti-dive geometry” — that’s what helps keep the all new 2008 Liberty more level during braking. There’s also “ anti-squat geometry.” This valiant feat of engineering helps get rid of that funny unattractive “ bounce” that low-brow vehicles sometimes have during heavy acceleration and quick stops. No matter how you say it, the improvements to this Liberty are pretty darn good.

Always sit properly in the seat with the seat belt fastened. Always observe the passenger air bag indicator lamp to determine if the Occupant Classification System (OCS) is appropriate. Children 12 and under should always be in the backseat correctly using an infant or child restraint system or the seat belt positioned correctly for the child’s age and weight. No system, no matter how sophisticated, can repeal the laws of physics or overcome careless driving actions. Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. When the ESP warning lamp in the speedometer flashes, the driver needs to use less throttle and adapt speed and driving behavior to prevailing road conditions. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions. Please always wear your seat belt. Late availability.
