Jeep Liberty: 2002-present
Liberty replaced the Cherokee as a mid-size SUV entry and is the first Jeep vehicle to feature standard independent front suspension. It also introduced the industry-exclusive Sky-Slider open-air roof in 2008.

Jeep Grand Cherokee (WK): 2005-10
A complete redesign of the ZJ/WJ, it boasted improved ride and handling capabilities, the 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 and upscale amenities to make luxury car buyers envious.

Jeep Commander: 2006-10
A seven-passenger three-row Jeep based on the WK platform, but two inches longer, with unique stadium-style seating.

Jeep Compass and Patriot: 2007-present
The Jeep brand’s entries into the popular compact-SUV segment, these vehicles offer unsurpassed capability and 4×4 fuel economy in their class.

Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited (JK): 2007-present
Building on the successful, original Jeep formula with an all-new frame, exterior and interior design, engine, and safety and convenience features, the JK delivers more capability, refinement, interior space and comfort, open-air fun, power, fuel efficiency and safety features.

Featuring a one-of-a-kind, four-door open-air design, the JK Wrangler expanded the Jeep experience to new dimensions. With room for five adult passengers – a Wrangler first – and the most cargo space ever offered in a Wrangler, the Unlimited combines class-leading off-road capability with everyday practicality.

Today’s Wrangler models are lean, rugged and simple, achieving best-in-class off-road capability while delivering a true open-air driving experience. For 2011, all Wranglers boast an all-new interior, and Sahara models feature a more premium body-color hardtop.

Jeep Grand Cherokee (also WK): 2011-present
All-new for 2011 and more than 4 million sales after the first Grand Cherokee, Jeep improves the formula and delivers the perfect blend of on-road refinement and off-road capability. The new WK provides premium on-road performance, legendary Jeep craftsmanship, improved fuel economy, a world-class interior, a sleek new exterior design, true American craftsmanship and a host of safety and technology features.
