LibertyLiberty Wrangler Edition, 2004 Grand Cherokee?
Posted by mike on 2003/2/25 0:00:00 (4065) reads

The rumored Jeep Liberty Wrangler Edition is a rumor no more, what's up with the Canadian Jeep site?

A few months back, the guys over at Car-Truck.com reported on a rumored Jeep Liberty Wagoneer Edition that might be making its way to your Jeep dealer's showroom. We can confirm that this is now true. During a recent visit to our local Jeep dealership earlier this week, we viewed the Wagonner Edition - with similated wood-grain and all! While we here at mike's totally free jeep news love the original Wagoneer (we'd be driving one today if it wasn't for the horrendous gas mileage), our initial reaction to the Wagoneer Edition Liberty was just ho-hum. It turns out that it is just a Jeep Liberty Limited with the Wagoneer wood-grain exterior.

If you have a chance, take a look at Car-Truck.com's original article - it contains a photo of the Liberty Wagoneer Edition.

On another front, we recently received an email with this link to the Canadian Jeep Web site. What makes this odd is that all of the specs for the Grand Cherokees are for the 2004 models - including photos which display a subtle change in the Grand Cherokee's styling. Perhaps the best comparison is between this page and this page. Differences we've noticed include the round fog lights on the 2004 versus a more "rectangular" fog light on the 2003. Also note the vertical angle of the 7-slotted grill - in the 2004 model, it appear to be much more "vertical" than the 2003 model.

We're not exactly sure why the 2004 Grand Cherokees are being diplayed on the www.jeep.ca - if you can shed some light on the subject, we'd love to hear your take on it!

Jason you ignorant PUKE!!! You are hereby banned for life from ever owning a Jeep, for fear of your twisted idea of "taste". You must be living in the 70's. I bet you've got a "Harvest Gold" fridge too.

Jason, I'm on my third (new) GC. It seems you shouldn't be sure about ANYthing.
Why don't you just go back to applying Mac Tac to your ratted out K-car, and quit making an idiot of yourself.

some like the woodgrain, some don't...
personally i love the grand wag; cheap woodgrain and all. i've owned 2 of them (and still would but for the fuel bills)...
d.c. putting woodgrain on the liberty and calling it a wagoneer is one of the dumbest things they've done yet (compare the little libby to the grand wag! please!)

I'm not a big fan of fake wood, but for some reason, I've always liked the look of it on the old Grand Wagonneers (the big ones and the 1st gen GC-based ones). Though on a 2nd gen GC or Liberty it would look out of place, IMHO..

Relax guys, I'm sure JASON was just kidding. Saying that fake woodgrain is real class? C'mon now , see it's a joke. He was pulling your leg guys. Over on the Cadillac site he was wanting wallpaper on the Escalade. See, he's just teasing.

Hey Jason, I know a place where you can get a padded landau roof put on your woodgrain sided Grand Cherokee. I'm sure your neighbors will love you. Maybe a custom plate too... how 'bout 'TACKY KING' ?

Jeep dealers in both Milwaukee and Chicago have been selling the 2004 Grands for about three weeks, but most are still kept in the back so to move the 2003. Only differences are the fog lights and grill on all models, chrome chin and roof rack on Overland and Freedom models, and monochromatic Laredo. Also the ashtay/coin tray seems to be missing on 2004 (at dealerships, at auto shows, and in Jeep info books)and a GPS/ Stereo replaces normal stereo as an option. As for the Liberty with woodgrain.... doubt it will be available as model from Jeep. Many dealers in my area have sold a Freedom Edition Liberty that consisted of adhesive us flag graphic for the side.... not really sure if stickers are worth ~$700.... woodgrain seems to come from the same school of thought.

Did you mean Wagonner Edition in the title? It's says Wrangler.

Fake woodgrain on the outside looks terrible in my opinion. I have never liked it. Looks cheap.

I spoke to my long time Jeep/Chrysler sales rep about the 2004 Grand Cherokee. He said the current Chrysler model line-up is the most unusual he has ever seen with respect to the mix of model years (2003/04).
To compete with other manufacturers offering all new 2004 models available now, Jeep is pushing the 2004GC model early. This is a sales tactic aiming to grab consumer interest without resorting to rebates etc.
Suspicions are that the 2005 Grand Cherokee will debut very early 2004(about this time next year). Look for the new 345hp Hemi as the high output
V8.

The Final Order Date for 2003 Grand Cherokee's was October 15, 2002, and the Build-Out date was December 20, 2002. The Start-Up date for 2004 GC's was January 2, 2003. All of the GC's you saw at the Detroit Auto Show (including the "Freedom Edition" models reported here in January) were 2004 models.

I saw an '04 Grand Cherokee on the way into work this morning here in Orange County, CA. It did not have any plates on it yet but dealers must be starting to sell them. Same front end look as the picture, had black paint and the chrome grill. Also had the rock rails on the side, so I am guessing it was an Overland Edition.
