The top-level Liberty is powered by the same 3.7-liter SOHC V6 as the Sport trim, but as expected it features upgrades both aesthetic and equipment-related. For starters, automatic transmission is standard; a manual Limited is not made.
On the outside there is bright trim on the grille (which on the base model is painted the body color), body-side molding, and roof rails (black on the base model), and the wheels have been upgraded to 17-inch alloys. Fog lights, premium fender flares, and a spare-tire cover are also bonuses on the Limited.
The safety factor is high on the 2007 Liberty Limited, as each one includes ABS and the Electronic Stability Program (ESP), an integrated system consisting of traction control, brake assist, and Electronic Roll Mitigation. The system senses the need for braking and power reduction at each wheel and transfers the appropriate response where it is needed.
Inside, the door panel has deluxe trim and the steering wheel is wrapped with leather. The driver's seat boasts a six-way power-adjust feature, which is optional on the front passenger seat. Leather seating surface and seat-heaters are available as options.
Other options include a navigation system, the UConnect hands-free communications system, and Command-Trac 4WD, a system that offers a full-time 4WD mode which unlike the part-time 4WD can be used on dry roads. You can also add such items as a power sunroof, skid plates, and an engine block heater.
Jeep has grouped some options together to help load your new Liberty. The G options package adds a mini overhead console, a display for the standard-equipment tire-pressure monitoring system, trip computer, luxury door-panel trim, vehicle information center, universal garage-door opener, upgraded audio system with CD changer and 6 Infinity speakers, and leather upholstery.
User reviews show that buyers of the 2007 Jeep Liberty reflect a satisfied lot. They agree that the 17/22 gas mileage is not fantastic, but they knew what they were getting into when they purchased. The same goes for the ride quality: it's appropriate for an SUV with this much off-road capability. The most common sentiment seemed to be: If you want something that rides like a car, then buy a car.
