Updated inside and out for 2005, Jeep's compact Liberty sport-utility vehicle gets a new front fascia, elliptical headlamps, fog lamps, fender flares and integrated bodyside moldings. The top Renegade version now features a flattened hood and taller grille, with off-road fog lamps, taillamp guards and functional rock rails. Inside there's relocated power window switches, redesigned instrument panel graphics, and trim bezels and improved seat comfort. A 2.8-liter turbodiesel engine is newly offered for 2005 that produces 160 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. A 150-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine remains the standard powerplant, while an optional 3.7-liter V-6 delivers a quicker and smoother 210 horses. Four-wheel disc brakes now come standard, and a six-speed-manual transmission is newly available.
