Jeep Diesel LibertyThe Chrysler diesel Liberty reached dealerships in late January. U.S. with total sales of 1,729 units. The diesel liberty sells within 18 days on a dealership lot, which, comparing to 40 to 50 days for a typical vehicle to sell as the industry norm, turning on a green light for the company to build more. The Chrysler group is considering production increase of the diesel version of the Jeep Liberty as well as diesel versions of other vehicles.

The new camp jeep has a lot of good things. Among them are:

  • Quiet engines - Unwanted noise and vibration limited the appeal of old diesel-powered vehicles. Diesels have also been criticized for their sluggish performance. Jeep has added features to reduce the noice level. Features include a noise-reducing engine cover, balancing shafts, an air induction resonator, and a torque converter turbine damper
  • Trims - Subtle exterior changes mark ’05 Sport models with a new body-color grille and better sills along the body sides
  • Safety - All Liberty diesels include multi-stage front airbags for the driver and front passenger that are engineered with an Occupant Classification System.
  • Entertainment - Features a navigation radio, a UConnect Hands-free communication System, and SIRIUS satellite radio
