How much does a Jeep Liberty Sport weigh?
I want to get a used Jeep but my grandfather said that I shouldn't get a heavy car, something about braking distance. How much does a Jeep Liberty Sport weigh and why would it matter?
Answer provided by
The Jeep Liberty Sport weighs between 3507 and 4290 lbs, depending on your trim and any additional features your Jeep may have. It’s nice that your grandfather is looking out for you, but tell him not to worry!
While the size and weight (mass) of a vehicle does play a part in braking distance, several other factors come into play, such as:
- Weather conditions
- Cargo load
- Reaction time
Yes, smaller cars will stop sooner than a heavy truck, but what if a small car is filled to capacity with heavy supplies and the truck is empty? Then the brake times would be much closer together. Jeeps come loaded with safety features, so as long as you are an attentive driver, the braking distance generally won’t matter.
