Exclusive Allpar Liberty interviews (April

Rick Reuter is a personable at Chrysler who answered our questions with an air of conviction that may from having two Jeep in the family, belonging to his wife and He said that:

The diesel in the generation Liberty exceeded sales expectations, but standards for 2007, and they decided to to a bigger engine and put it into the Cherokee.

The 2.4 engine was never received, and the power to weight was too low; most buyers get cylinders for better gas mileage, but fuel economy wasn’t better with the 2.4. The V6 a better combination of performance and and dropping the 2.4 simplified their processes.

The 3.7 was used instead of the 3.8 due to production capacity.

The four automatic was kept partly keeping the powertrain unchanged them to focus on the key elements needed work. Most were happy with the combination, which has been the focus was on what needed to be most. This included quality, moving the window back to the doors, and adding space without much length.

People like the Liberty because it’s small on the by moving the spare underneath, could add to the length of the enclosed of the car, and lengthening it by two inches extra space for the rear as well. In addition, the mechanical case worked well but women did not like it due to the effort so they moved to an electronic which is much easier.

We asked how, with weight and the same powertrain, and a though improved drag the Liberty could increase its gas fairly substantially. According to this was largely a matter of rolling resistance, increasing efficiency, and cutting parasitic

In particular, brake-specific fuel was reduced through a different of EGR; and the electronic throttle to tighten engine control for a more efficiency. Overall, felt that real gas mileage increased even than EPA estimates.

Our next had to do with styling, so Rick over Ralph Gilles, who friendly and approachable despite his fame. We wondered about the Jeep was taking in so dramatically a vehicle which has been an hit, going from a curvy style to the more blocky style; in particular, most Liberty buyers been women, we wondered if would be an issue.

Ralph that historically, women buy a man’s car; what liked about the Liberty was the manageable size, which it easy to park, fun to live and easy to own. It now looks capable and rugged, which appeal more to men, still keeping the form liked by its current buyers. One cue he pointed out was the round headlights squarish lenses; they the lamps oversized to scale the and keep it looking small and the roundness gives it personality, the ruggedness.


The 2009 Liberty was retuned with axle and shafts, steering springs, shocks, brakes, and bars all getting tweaks. mats and auto unlock standard; the usual satellite option was added; and equipment were changed around. The model was considerably enhanced to the extra cost well it, with remote express-open windows and, in Jeep’s “soft-touch door uppers, all gray interior, soft armrest, leather-wrapped shift dual in-mold film for panel and console and leather-wrapped brake, steering wheel and handles.”

Two new orange and deep-water blue, electric and modern blue. The majority of Libertys sold the Sport model; the tweaks to the may have been an attempt to high-end sales by making it worthwhile.

The door, and liftgate assembly system is as are the side aperture assembly Only the robots’ end effectors, or need to change in order to the different models. That change is done automatically, the time it takes to cycle one vehicle to the next.

TNAP is enough to vary production mix two products anywhere from 0 to 100 of each model. A third can also be piloted or test-built at the time, helping reduce the needed to make new-model

New methods of material flow are implemented to manage the complexity of two being built on one assembly An inbound part sequencing is housed in the adjoining Stickney and manages more than different parts that are in the Dodge Nitro, Jeep and Toledo Supplier Park’s Wrangler two-door and Jeep Unlimited four-door build

In addition to sequencing, this provides parts metering, and container management to both North and Toledo Supplier Assembly Plants. Additionally, a portion of the TNAP facility is as dollies provide materials to areas, improving both safety and productivity measurements.

A new organizational model, called Manufacturing, is increasing the flexibility of the workforce, while fostering creativity and innovation from employees. This model is implemented throughout the Chrysler Manufacturing organization. In addition to training, the new workplace model employees design their own
