2010 Jeep Liberty Price, Value, Ratings & Reviews | Kelley Blue Book (2024)

Die-hard Jeep fans may once have worried that any attempt to redesign the Jeep Liberty would have it go soft, but that hasn’t happened. The latest model to carry the Liberty name saw a complete remake in 2008, which included a long list of new features, an improved ride, better handling and better fuel economy. At the same time, a pair of very capable four-wheel drive systems, a highly functional interior and a more rugged styling theme allow the Liberty to retain its off-road roots. While it’s difficult to meet the various needs of modern SUV buyers, Jeep fans can rest easy knowing the latest Liberty still embodies all that the Jeep brand has come to represent.

Driving the Used 2010 Jeep Liberty

The 2010 Jeep Liberty must contend with both on- and off-road driving situations and it manages to perform admirably in both. At freeway speeds, the revised suspension provides a smooth and quiet ride, yet on winding roads the steering is responsive and body lean is well controlled. However, it is away from paved roads where the Jeep Liberty really shines, with two highly capable four-wheel drive systems, All-speed Traction Control, Hill Descent Control, Hill Start Assist and anti-lock brakes with rough road detection giving the Liberty truly impressive off-road credentials. The Liberty’s V6 provides plenty of power for tackling demanding trails, but on the open road it feels lethargic, requiring frequent downshifts to maintain speed when traveling uphill.

Interior Comfort

The interior of the 2010 Jeep Liberty offers the clean, functional simplicity one expects from a Jeep. From the perspective of off-road enthusiasts, the Liberty’s easy-to-clean, hard plastic interior is ideal, but those who enjoy a bit of panache from a vehicle’s interior should opt for the Limited trim’s "Comfort and Convenience" package and the available Uconnect infotainment system. Head room is good in all seating positions; however, with the front seats adjusted for normal-sized adults, rear-seat leg room can be tight. Cargo space behind the second row is good, but those needing more space will appreciate standard 60/40 flat-folding rear seats and the optional folding front-passenger seat.

Exterior Styling

The 2010 Jeep Liberty reverts to the squared look of the original Jeep Cherokee while also presenting a modern take on classic Jeep styling cues. A box-like profile and prominent fender flairs create a solid purposeful stance, while its signature seven-slot grille and hexagonal headlamps with round lighting elements give the Liberty a face that looks distinctly Jeep. In back, the spare tire resides beneath the vehicle, allowing easy access to the tailgate’s flip-up rear glass.

Favorite Features

Sky Slider Roof
Opening the optional Sky Slider Roof lets the sun shine in and the breeze waft around the cabin, yet with the soft-top closed interior noise is on par with the standard metal-roof Jeep Liberty.

Uconnect Infotainment System
Combining a hands-free phone system, voice-recognition, 30 gigabyte digital music storage, GPS navigation and real-time traffic information, the Liberty’s Uconnect tunes option offers lots of information, communication and entertainment resources in one easy-to-use device.

Standard Features

The 2010 Jeep Liberty is offered in two trims: Sport and Limited. The standard equipment list for the base Sport trim includes Stain Repel stain-resistant seat fabric, air conditioning, body-colored bumpers and fender flares, MP3-capable CD player with auxiliary audio input jack, power windows, heated mirrors and power door locks. The Limited Edition Liberty adds an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather seating , premium Infinity speakers with subwoofer and 368-watt amplifier, chrome exterior accents and steering wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls. Standard safety features for both trims include anti-lock brakes (ABS), stability control with roll-over mitigation, traction control, front row active head restraints, front airbags and two-row side-curtain airbags.

Factory Options

There are several option packages available to further outfit the Jeep Liberty, including the Sport trim’s Popular Equipment Group, which features a fold-flat front passenger seat, fog lamps, cruise control, tinted glass and a two-pronged power outlet. Other options include 18-inch wheels, Trailer Tow Group, automatic temperature control, power sunroof, Sky Slider canvas top and the Uconnect navigation and radio system. 4X4 Limited models can be equipped with a Dana 30 front axle, skid plates and all-season tires.

Engine & Transmission

The 2010 Jeep Liberty is powered by a 3.7-liter V6. It offers plenty of power when tackling rough trails but the on-road acceleration is underwhelming. The Liberty features only one transmission: a standard four-speed automatic. The Liberty is offered with a choice of Command-Trac II part-time four-wheel drive or Selec-Trac II full-time four-wheel drive. Both systems include a low-speed transfer case which multiplies engine torque to help traverse challenging terrain at very low speeds.

3.7-liter V6
210 horsepower at 5200 rpm
235 lb.-ft. of torque at 4000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 16/22 (2WD), 15/21 (4WD)

KBB Vehicle Review and Rating Methodology

Our Expert Ratings come from hours of both driving and number crunching to make sure that you choose the best car for you. We comprehensively experience and analyze every new SUV, car, truck, or minivan for sale in the U.S. and compare it to its competitors. When all that dust settles, we have our ratings.

We require new ratings every time an all-new vehicle or a new generation of an existing vehicle comes out. Additionally, we reassess those ratings when a new-generation vehicle receives a mid-cycle refresh — basically, sprucing up a car in the middle of its product cycle (typically, around the 2-3 years mark) with a minor facelift, often with updates to features and technology.

Rather than pulling random numbers out of the air or off some meaningless checklist, KBB’s editors rank a vehicle to where it belongs in its class. Before any car earns its KBB rating, it must prove itself to be better (or worse) than the other cars it’s competing against as it tries to get you to spend your money buying or leasing.

Our editors drive and live with a given vehicle. We ask all the right questions about the interior, the exterior, the engine and powertrain, the ride and handling, the features, the comfort, and of course, about the price. Does it serve the purpose for which it was built? (Whether that purpose is commuting efficiently to and from work in the city, keeping your family safe, making you feel like you’ve made it to the top — or that you’re on your way — or making you feel like you’ve finally found just the right partner for your lifestyle.)

We take each vehicle we test through the mundane — parking, lane-changing, backing up, cargo space and loading — as well as the essential — acceleration, braking, handling, interior quiet and comfort, build quality, materials quality, reliability.
