2006 Jeep Liberty Real Gas Mileage: Pros

2006 4dr SUV turbocharged 160hp 2.8L I4 Diesel
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
With a few mods., I get a combined 26 mpg and a solid 30 mpg highway.
2006 4dr SUV turbocharged 160hp 2.8L I4 Diesel
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
A mid-sized car that can carry a family of four at 27-30 MPG.
2006 4dr SUV turbocharged 160hp 2.8L I4 Diesel
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
With the Diesel I get 22 City and 24-26 on road trips. The gearing just kills you if you go much faster than 65.

5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
I did a GDE Hot tune on mine... before it i used to get an average of 25MPG in mixed driving. After the tune my average is ALWAYS over 30! If i would have gotten the ECO tune it would have probably been better! I also got the trans tune! worth every penny
2005 4dr SUV turbocharged 160hp 2.8L I4 Diesel
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
Despite being a small SUV, this is a heavy 4x4. To get 30 - 33 mpg on the highway doing 65 mpg is incredible. Even with the hideous price of diesel fuel lately, this is still worth it.
2005 4dr SUV turbocharged 160hp 2.8L I4 Diesel

29.5 mpg highway average is phenomenal for a 4,300 lb vehicle that is usually loaded to 5,000 lbs providing a highway range of 600 miles.
2005 4dr SUV turbocharged 160hp 2.8L I4 Diesel
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
The Liberty has a diesel engine and I usually get around 23 mpg. I have gotten as high as 30 mpg on one trip.

This vehicle is very heavy and subsequently only get upto 23mpg. Which I consider very low for a vehicle of this size.
2006 4dr SUV 210-horsepower 3.7L V6
4-speed automatic RWD
Very poor fuel economy on the gasoline version.
2005 4dr SUV 210-horsepower 3.7L V6
4-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
Unfortunately we use it as a daily driver, and its terrible on gas milage which seems to rival that of larger SUVs

4-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
Horrible fuel economy, even when not in 4WD. Could be my lead foot.
