Jeep Liberty Renegade

For 2005, the Jeep Liberty unveils a new freshened exterior and interior design on the Sport and Limited models, and the Liberty Renegade takes on a more rugged design with its unique exterior. Also new to the lineup for 2005 are a six-speed manual transmission and the first turbo Common Rail Diesel (CRD) engine offering in a mid-size SUV for North American markets.

"Jeep Liberty's refreshed interior and exterior help to solidify the vehicle's leadership position in the marketplace while staying true to its Jeep heritage," said Jeff Bell, Vice President - Jeep. "The 2005 Jeep Liberty offers the best combination of Jeep 4 x 4 capability and on-road refinement in a mid-size SUV."

Appealing to a slightly different type of buyer than the Sport and Limited models, the Jeep Liberty Renegade features a flatter hood that complements the traditional round Jeep headlamps for a distinctive appearance. A body color grille is also new for 2005. Large freestanding fog lamps with black bezels offer more visibility when off-roading and a new sill protects the body sides from road blast. Tow hooks and a Bright Silver Metallic appliqué across the new molded-in color front fascia are standard features. Bolted flares are also molded-in color for more durability and feature chrome-plated attachment details. A new luggage side rack with beefier molded-in color structural end pieces and a Brushed Silver Metallic tubular side rail enhances the Renegade's rugged appearance. The black off-road light bar is now an optional feature. Fender flares combined with available all-terrain tires, off-road light bar and taillamp guards give the Liberty Renegade a look that stands apart from the Sport and Limited models.
