The 2006 Jeep Liberty possesses a classic Jeep appearance with its seven-slot grille, clamshell hood and round headlamps. The Jeep Liberty is available in either Sport or Limited models.
The 3.7-liter, single-overhead-cam (SOHC), V-6 engine is standard on the 2006 Jeep Liberty. It produces 210 hp (157 kW) @ 5,200 rpm and 235 lb.-ft. (319 N•m) of torque @ 4,000 rpm. The valve train and combustion chamber work together as a system to enhance low-speed torque while providing a smooth idle and minimal engine noise. A sophisticated Electronic Throttle Control system tailors throttle response to pedal movement based on operating conditions, and maintains a consistent vehicle speed on rolling grades when cruise control is active.
Command-Trac is a part-time, shift-on-the-fly system providing legendary Jeep capability. It offers the peace of mind of available four-wheel-drive capability for use on slippery or loose surfaces (snow, mud or sand). Using Command-Trac, the driver can place the vehicle in two-wheel drive (2Hi), part-time four-wheel-drive high range (4 part time) or four-wheel-drive low range (4Lo), depending on the capability needed.
Selec-Trac is a full-time four-wheel system that provides full-time capability and security. Using Selec-Trac, the driver can place the vehicle in a variety of four-wheel-drive settings, including two-wheel drive (2Hi), part-time four-wheel-drive high range (4 part time), full-time four-wheel-drive high range (4 full time) or low-range four-wheel drive (4Lo).
