ICOTY Awards - SUV Most
sedans and roadsters are great on the highway, they aren't
the first choice when the terrain turns rocky and the
streams start to rise. That's why we looked to Jeep for
the vehicle Most Likely to Survive Anything. And the new
Liberty provides its owners with the freedom to go anywhere
and do anything to survive. Sometimes that just means
getting away from the city and spending the weekend getting
dusty on the trails or camping out in the desert.
the Liberty is the newest offering from Jeep, it is backed
by 60 years of Jeepness, which means it features four-wheel-drive
systems like Command-Trac and Selec-Trac that have been
tested to the extremes in other Jeep products. The Liberty's
3.7-liter PowerTech V-6 engine in the Limited model provides
good power and good fuel economy, as well as many high-tech
features you wouldn't expect to find in such a workhorse.
To survive, you have to be nimble and surefooted; we liked
the Cadillac Escalade and the Chevy TrailBlazer,
runners-up in this contest, but the Liberty has the size
and finesse to go from street to off-road with the greatest
of ease. And in this case, the Liberty wins for survival
of the fittest.
