2011 Jeep Liberty Styling

7.0
Styling
The Jeep Liberty's appearance hasn't changed much over the years. It looks tough and straightforward from a distance, boxy and traditional—or a bit slab-sided from some angles. With its most recent refresh, Jeep amped up the macho-man appeal and made the Liberty look the off-road part a bit more. In front, the look is all Jeep, with a grille and lights configured like those of the classic Wrangler, plus lipped, flared fenders that in some models are covered in dark plastic.

Inside, the Liberty feels a bit stark and simple, with more hard plastics than more carlike crossovers this size, but it fits the part. The design logic throughout the interior now involves lots of rectangles and a straight up and down orientation. The center stack is finished in a lighter, matte-metallic-toned plastic, while the interior and gauges in most trims have been dressed up just a little bit with chrome bezels and other brightwork. For 2011, there's a new steering-wheel design with steering-wheel-mounted audio controls.
