Jeep has been out testing the all-new Liberty this week, and we caught these two prototypes nearly 2000 miles apart. Sporting a Jeep-type grille, a crossover/SUV ride height and riding on Yokahama Geolander AT-S all-terrain tires, there’s no mistaking this for anything but a Jeep!
Codenamed UJ, the new Liberty replacement will come standard in front-wheel drive, with an all-wheel drive option available.
Powerplants will include a much anticipated and new 3.2-liter V6, mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission.
Worldwide, we’re expecting Alfa Romeo and Lancia versions, with the Jeep to debut at the North American International Auto Show in January.
The new Jeep will be built at Chrysler’s plant in Toledo, Ohio.
