Expert Quotes:

Urban-targeted Jet models get chrome trim, blacked-out headlight surrounds, 20-inch chrome wheels and four additional color options.
Motor Trend

Exterior styling was done with nothing but a compass and a protractor... though in an age of evermore swoopy and organic styling, some squared-off, broad-shouldered machinery is a welcome diversion.

The new Renegade model looks like it’s wearing mascara, a moustache, and a Mohawk.

cabin has all the design flair of a cinder block

Looking tough and traditional—though a bit slab-sided from some angles—the Jeep Liberty appearance hasn't changed much over the years. A few years ago, Jeep amped up the macho-man appeal and added chunky details to look even more trail-tough.

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, while in back, the tall, boxy look has a sort of elegant simplicity.

The Liberty's styling inside keeps to that role with a stark and simple look, although there are more hard plastics than in most crossovers this size. 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.

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.
