The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.4
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Jeep Liberty is at home on the trail, but if you plan to do most of your driving on paved roads you can do a lot better. The 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser stands above most SUVs—even off-road-capable ones—in both style and trail toughness; but city slickers should look elsewhere.
