Driving Impressions of the '12 Jeep Liberty

The Jeep Liberty offers a pleasant driving experience. The ride is firm, and the Liberty smoothes over most bumps and is never punishing, even with the available 18-inch wheels.  Its solid axle rear suspension is designed for the more rugged chores of towing and off-road capability.  In off-road conditions, the Liberty is quite good. With generous approach and departure angles and low-range gearing for 4x4 models, it can crawl over large rocks and logs. Four-wheel-drive models have Hill Descent Control, which pulses the brakes through the ABS to limit the vehicle's speed when driving down steep grades. Hill Start Assist is also standard. It holds the brakes on hills when the driver releases the pedal to prevent the vehicle from sliding backward.  Wind noise and tire noise are well checked in the Liberty, and the engine is only noticeable under hard acceleration.  With the available towing package, the Liberty is capable of pulling a load up to 5,000 pounds. This towing capability combined with the Liberty's off-road prowess make it a good choice for families that like to camp, ski, or vacation at locations off the beaten path.
