Options & Features
Jeep's compact-class Liberty SUV applies ESP as stock safety equipment on all three trims of 2006 -- Sport, Limited and Renegade. Other standards range from air conditioning and power windows and door locks to a remote keyless entry system, ABS and an audio package with six speakers and a CD deck.
Powertrains this year extend to four-cylinder and V6 gasoline-powered engines as well as a 2.8-liter common rail diesel (CRD) with turbo-charging for 160 hp. The diesel becomes a torque-heavy variation for Sport and Limited trims.
Renegade goes further for running on rugged off-road trails by adding off-road foglamps and taillamp guards, functional rock rails, four protective skid plates on the undercarriage and an optional light bar on top. Fresh clear-coat paint colors for 2006 include Dark Khaki and Bright Silver, while add-on cabin gear extends to side air bags, a power sunroof and Sirius satellite radio subscription.
