2010 Jeep Liberty Sport - Click above for high-res image gallery

Chrysler has been mighty busy these past few months. The Auburn Hills, MI-based automaker has launched all-new versions of the Dodge Durango and Charger, the Chrysler 300 and Jeep Grand Cherokee. That's a very full product onslaught, yet Team Pentastar also found the time to give thorough (if overdue) refreshes to most of the other vehicles in its lineup. One vehicle missing from that long list of re-dos is the Jeep Liberty, but a report from Kicking Tires suggests that may change for 2012.

KT cites a Securities and Exchange Commission filing submitted by Chrysler that shows that the Liberty will be remade next year. We're not sure if the Liberty will be refreshed or if Chrysler is planning a more comprehensive makeover, but we do know that any and all changes are welcome. The second-generation Liberty went on sale in the 2008 model year.

The Liberty's fraternal twin, the Dodge Nitro is in need of some refresh love itself, but interestingly enough, the slow-selling vehicle wasn't mentioned in the report. Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne mentioned during the Detroit Auto Show that the Nitro "needs to be replaced," adding that the midsize SUV is "the most significant hole in our product portfolio."
