2008 Jeep Cherokee preview at NY
The 2008 JeepÂ Liberty, to be unveiled at the 2007 NewÂ York Auto Show, features an all-new slab-sided look, but is essentially just a reskinned version of the Dodge Nitro that was unveiled in the Middle EastÂ recently.
The new Liberty, or Cherokee as it is known in the GCC,Â is powered by the same 3.7-litre V6 producing 210 hp andÂ 318 NmÂ of torque, available with either a 6-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. It might be slower due to weight, be itÂ should handle better thanks to an all-new independent front suspension and new five-link rear suspension. The Liberty’s Trail Rating is in tact, regardless of whether you choose the hard core Selec-Trac II full-time four-wheel-drive system or Command-Trac part-time four-wheel-drive system.
