Expert Quotes:

“Jeep has definitely masculinized the Liberty’s styling”

“an unmistakable Jeep grille combined with squared-off, go-anywhere pugnacity”

“an uncanny resemblance to the Dodge Nitro”

The 2010 Jeep Liberty’s exterior appearance has become a bit more masculine, and the tweaks work well to emphasize off-road prowess and all-around Jeep-ness.

The Liberty is closely related to the Dodge Nitro, with the latter model equipped a bit more for on-road duty, but reviewers note that there isn't much of a difference between the two. Edmunds says that the “Jeep Liberty midsize SUV is just a Dodge Nitro wearing a Jeep Commander mask,” and Automobile.com sees, “at first glance, especially from the rear three-quarters, the Jeep Liberty has an uncanny resemblance to the Dodge Nitro.”

With its most recent refresh, Jeep amps up the macho-man appeal and makes the Liberty look the off-road part a bit more. The New York Times observes that the Liberty is “about two inches longer than its predecessor” and “has an unmistakable Jeep grille combined with squared-off, go-anywhere pugnacity.” According to Motor Trend, “it gets a more macho-looking Jeep seven-slat grille, replacing the more rounded, friendly-looking grille that ironically has been applied to the iconic, macho Wrangler.” Considering the Liberty’s “exterior changes include squared-off headlamps, a flattened hoodline, and a less rounded body—Jeep has definitely masculinized the Liberty's styling,” says Truck Trend.

The 2010 Liberty interior looks tough and straightforward from a distance, but up close it's still appointed in chintzy-feeling materials. According to Edmunds, “the interior has sobered up. In place of the collection of design-y circles that made the old interior look something like a toy is a theme of straight lines and flat surfaces."

Conclusion

For those wanting to set out on the trail, the 2010 Jeep Liberty has a style that will look the part, though the interior is nothing to write home about.

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.
