The Jeep Liberty was introduced for the 2002 model year and received a redesign in 2008. The second-generation 2008 Liberty featured a boxier look and roomier interior, making it a midsize SUV. In addition, it retained its off-roading capability and V6 engine, which provided up to 5,000 pounds of towing capacity. As is customary at Jeep, there were special-edition models available over the Liberty's production run. However, Liberty sales ended after the 2012 model year.
