Auburn 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.
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
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.
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
In the Select-Trac II
position, the transfer case anticipates and prevents wheel slip. It is
ideal for a range of road settings, including dry pavement conditions
not typically suited for conventional part-time four-wheel-drive
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.
