2010 Jeep® Liberty Gives Owners Personal Freedom and Capability That Only Comes From Jeep

2010 Jeep Liberty LimitedAuburn Hills, Mich., Sep 1, 2009 - The 2010 Jeep® Liberty gives customers an "only in a Jeep" open-air experience with its industry-exclusive Sky Slider full-length open canvas roof.

New for 2010 is interactive Decel Fuel Shut Off (iDFSO). Standard on all models, iDFSO turns off fuel during vehicle deceleration, which improves fuel economy without any noticeable changes in engine performance. In addition, the new standard fuel-saver indicator displays when the vehicle is driven in a fuel-efficient manner.

Other standard features for 2010 include front-row Active Head Restraints, premium seat trim with stain-repel seat fabric, air filtration system and larger floor mats.

The 2010 Jeep Liberty features the industry-exclusive Sky Slider full-length open canvas roof. The Sky Slider roof may be moved to several positions, including full forward, full rear or partially open to any position in between with a convenient express one-touch switch.

A 3.7-liter V-6 engine is standard on all Jeep Liberty models. The 3.7-liter engine produces 210 horsepower (157 kW) @ 5,200 rpm and 235 lb.-ft. (319 N•m) of torque @ 4,000 rpm.

The 2010 Jeep Liberty offers two four-wheel-drive systems. Command-Trac II® is a part-time four-wheel-drive system, which is the standard 4WD configuration. Command-Trac II operates in 2WD, 4WD Lock, 4 WD Low and Neutral.
The optional Selec-Trac II® is a full-time, active on-demand four-wheel-drive system. Select-Trac II operates in 2WD, 4WD Auto, 4WD Low and Neutral.

The 2WD position is for normal driving and achieves optimal fuel economy as the front driveshaft is disengaged from the transfer case, and power is directed to rear wheels.

The Command-Trac II® 4WD Lock position locks the front and rear driveshaft together and forces front and rear wheels to rotate at the same speed. These positions are intended for loose or slippery road surfaces only.

It is ideal for a range of road settings, including dry pavement conditions not typically suited for conventional part-time four-wheel-drive systems.

4WD Low is for true off-road conditions and is engaged at speeds of 0-2 mph. Front and rear driveshafts are locked together and a second gearset multiplies torque which provides traditional Jeep capability. 4WD Low is suitable for speeds less than 30 mph.

Vehicles equipped with Jeep Liberty’s four-wheel-drive systems are Trail Rated®.
