Liberty with Pentastar V6, when?
 
I was thinking about getting my wife a Liberty by the end of this year. Drag her into the Jeep swamp. The thing is that I know it will come out with a Pentastar V6. If I'm not wrong it was supposed to be out by summer this year. But haven't seen or heard any info about availability. On jeep.com it doesn't even appear.
So does anyone know when it will be in production for the Liberty?? Or does the WKII get them all???

The Pentastar will definitely will not appear in the Liberty for the 2011 model year. Very few changes for 2011, price has been lowered and more content added as Standard.

Thanks Milous! Should I go for it with the standard 3.7 anyway? Because first it has to be available with Pentastar for the US market. Then the Euro market, which are the vehicles that gets down here. So it could take maybe a year or two, right?

At least a year or two if at all, the Liberty is set to be replaced after the 2013 model year and at this time I have not seen the drivetrain options for 2012 or 2013 models.

3.6, 42RLE will likely be phased out for NAG or the new 6 speed that's under development, with Magna transfer cases; one with full time 4wd NV140 single speed transmission; trail rated version will likely get the NV245.
