Jeep has been out testing a Dart-based replacement for the Liberty, and the photographers at Brenda Priddy & Co. snapped these photos. Sporting a Jeep-type grille and a crossover/SUV ride height, and carrying the codename UJ, the new Liberty replacement will come standard in front-wheel drive, with an all-wheel-drive option available.
According to Priddy, powerplants will include a new 3.2L V6, matted to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
Worldwide, Priddy and her team are expecting Alfa Romeo and Lancia versions, with the Jeep version to debut at the North American International Auto Show in January. The new Jeep will be built at Chrysler’s plant in Toledo, Ohio; however, the Alfa version will be built in Italy alongside the Lancia crossover.
