Looking ahead: already excited for 2014 Liberty
In the society in which we live, it's incredibly rare for anything to stay the same over time. Think about it: the internet, communication technology, popular foods, the price for a tank of gas - anything. Sometimes, though, changes can be for the better.
Take the 2014 Jeep Liberty, for example. Chrysler has announced that one big change will be coming down in that model year. Namely, a Pentastar engine will power the Jeep that Skokie has come to know as its favorite. Make that a 3.2-liter V6 engine, which is currently powering the Chrysler 300 and Jeep Wrangler.
This smaller engine (as compared with the 3.6-liter V6 that the automaker currently produces) is expected make its way into the 2014 Liberty in time for the Detroit Auto Show in January. The Liberty's platform will be based on the new Dodge Dart, which also provides the platform for the Chrysler 200 and Jeep Compass.
Other anticipated features on this vehicle include a nine-speed transmission produced by the same automotive supplier that fashions the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger sedans. The best news of all is that these changes are already on the way! Beginning in August, Chrysler's Toledo North Assembly plant will undergo a $500 million renovation in order to prepare for production of the new vehicle.
At Fields Chrysler Jeep Dodge, we know the wait will be a long one. After all, we're just as excited to see this new Jeep Liberty in action and on our lots! Stay tuned by keeping in touch with our dealership, and we're sure the time it takes to get behind the wheel of a 2014 Liberty will fly by.
