2000-2009

The radical 2003 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon was the most capable vehicle ever produced by the Jeep Brand. A new four-door Wrangler took the industry by storm. The Compass and Patriot were the first Jeep Brand vehicles to reach into the small cross-utility segment.

THE JEEP® BRAND LINEUP GROWS


The merger of Daimler-Benz and Chrysler in 1998 started to show the fruits of collaboration with the introduction of a number of new Jeep® Brand vehicles. In 2001, a new Jeep® Cherokee (KJ) replaced the long-lived Cherokee (XJ). A seven-passenger Jeep Commander was introduced in 2006. The Jeep Compass and Patriot (MK) and Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited (JK) were all introduced in 2007. A new Jeep Cherokee (KK) was introduced in 2008. The parent company Chrysler Group LLC entered into a global alliance with Fiat SpA in 2009.

INDEPENDENT BY NATURE


The venerable Cherokee (XJ) was phased out in 2001 its replacement was the Liberty (KJ). The new Jeep® Liberty featured time-tested design cues like round headlamps and a seven-slot grille.

The Liberty infused bold engineering advances like an independent front suspension and a new 3.7L V6 to replace the longstanding 4.0L I-6 engine.

Four-wheel drive is via Command-Trac®; Liberty Limited models received Selec-Trac Full-Time 4WD and 3.73:1 axles as standard. For the 2005 model year, Liberty was offered with an optional 2.8L turbo diesel engine and six-speed manual transmission.

2004-2007 JEEP® WRANGLER UNLIMITED (TJ)

THE JEEP® LEGEND CONTINUES


In 2004, the Jeep® Brand offered a “stretched” version of the TJ, Wrangler Unlimited. Ten inches longer in wheelbase (103-inch) and 15 inches longer in overall length, the Unlimited offered two inches more rear leg room, more interior space, and greatly enhanced on-road handling.

The Unlimited was slightly different from the long military TJ-L model, adding five inches of rear overhang but having less space in the mid-body. The Unlimited is unofficially known by fans as the “LJ”.

The increased wheelbase offered more refined on-road comfort, as well as versatility and increased towing capacity to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.

In 2005, the Jeep Brand introduced the Rubicon Unlimited–it featured the wheelbase of the Unlimited and off-road features of the Rubicon.

2005-2010 JEEP® GRAND CHEROKEE (WK)

MORE OF A GREAT THING


The all-new Grand Cherokee (WK) debuted in 2004 as a 2005 model. This revamped Grand Cherokee combined power, luxury and a significantly quieter, more comfortable ride.

Jeep® Brand engineers worked hard to improve on-road refinement by adding a short/long-arm independent front suspension similar to the 2002 Liberty.

The ground-up transformation continued with a choice of three power plants including the mighty 330-horsepower 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine. The 2006 Jeep® Grand Cherokee SRT8® featured a 6.1L HEMI V8 with 420 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, 20-inch lightweight forged wheels and four-piston Brembo brakes.

The available full-time Quadra-Drive® II 4x4 System featured front and rear limited slip differentials and a center differential-lock which operated in low-range.

An All-New Grand Cherokee (WK) was introduced in 2011.

2006-2010 JEEP® COMMANDER (XK)

THE JEEP® BRAND LEGEND CONTINUES TO GROW


The 2006 Commander was the first seven-passenger Trail Rated® Jeep® 4x4 vehicle. Based on the ‘05 Grand Cherokee platform, the boxy Commander was only slightly longer than the WK (two inches), but a three-inches-higher stepped roofline and stadium-style seating arrangement allowed for an extra row of seats in back.

The boxy styling on the Commander—with upright windshield and squared-off sides—instantly distinguishes it from its cousin.

Basic power and drive train offerings were the same as the Grand Cherokee (WK). As with most Jeep® Brand 4x4 models, the Commander carried the Jeep Trail Rated® badge. To be Trail Rated, a vehicle must meet performance standards in traction, articulation, ground clearance, maneuverability and water fording.

Jeep® Brand engineers sought to improve the Liberty vehicle’s on-road refinement and strengthen its off-road abilities. As a result, all-new independent front and five-link suspension systems, along with an all-new available Selec-Trac® II Full-Time 4x4 System were developed, giving the Liberty refined on-road handling without compromising the vehicle's off-road attributes.

On the inside, seat comfort, cargo capacity and passenger room were improved. The Sky Slider® Roof available on Liberty delivered a true Jeep® Brand open-air experience.

In 2011, the Jeep® Brand celebrated its 70th Anniversary with a special edition of the Jeep Liberty. This distinctive vehicle was available with a distinctive exterior paint color (Bronze Star Pearl), 70th Anniversary badging and more.
