The Jeep Liberty, or Jeep Cherokee (KJ/KK) outside North America, was a compact SUV produced by the Jeep marque of Chrysler from model years 2002–2013. Introduced as a replacement for the Cherokee (XJ), the Liberty was priced between the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee. It was the smallest of the 4-door Jeep SUVs up until the car based 4-door Compass and Patriot arrived for 2007. In 2010 estimates by Jeep were that 70% of Liberty buyers were new to the marque. The Liberty ceased production on August 16, 2012.
