Expert Quotes:

Garmin-based navigation that's a major improvement over the old unit
Motor Trend

a reasonable dosage of options (leather interior, sunroof, premium audio, premium wheels) can push the sticker up so that it nudges $30,000... and that's Grand Cherokee territory
Autoblog

Our test vehicle also had the optional Sky Slider sunroof, a fabric unit that peels all the way back to the cargo area, opening both rows of seats to sunny blue skies. That’s cool.

While some call the sliding fabric roof a gimmick, to me it's a feature that is a perfect match for the Jeep brand.

Base Sport and more luxurious Limited trims of the 2012 Jeep Liberty span a range from no-nonsense and affordable to quite plush. But oddly, the off-road-ready Renegade and its very off-road-focused kit have been dropped for 2012.

Last year, Jeep lowered prices on the Liberty, and it added a Bluetooth hands-free interface (with voice command), a garage-door opener, overhead console, and rear park assist as new standard equipment. Otherwise, the Limited is the way to go for those who want a more luxurious rig good for light-duty towing and weekend excursions. There's a big jump in look and feel up to the Limited models, as they add leather upholstery, heated front seats, steering-wheel audio controls, a Bluetooth hands-free interface, a garage-door opener, a cargo cover, and various other trim upgrades.

Sound systems were also revamped last year, with steering-wheel controls added for all models. The optional premium audio system is DVD and MP3 compatible and comes with a touch screen and 30-gigabyte hard drive; it can also be optioned with built in Garmin navigation and Sirius Traffic and Travel Link services. Rain-sensing wipers and a Sky Slider sunroof are among other noteworthy options.

Sport Jet and Limited Jet models--essentially special-edition packages--offer a spiced-up appearance, with big 20-inch aluminum wheels, chrome molding, and other black and bright trim throughout, plus a leather-wrapped steering wheel and alarm system.

 

Conclusion

Whether you're looking for a hardy off-roader or a luxurious wagon, the 2012 Jeep Liberty offers a strong feature set.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
