I have the 4WD logo on the back with all the ESP, ABS etc features. With good tires like I have traction if very sure footed. The rear wheels/axle engages in an instant of a partial slip is detected. There is a level in the rear of the center console to turn on 4WD. I see no problems in you getting up the driveway what so ever. I recent drove mine in and of at my cottage in over a foot of snow, initial powder and the next day more snow and very firmed up snow and ruts and it dug right threw it.
I don't have a problem with the operation of the CVT myself. It does rev up with load and throttle pressure. You are not awaiting a downshift that an automatic would require it seems to be compensating fairly often and settles out after a steady foot and load it delivered to it. You do have the manual over ride to simulate a standard as well but I have not need that.
Best to take one out for a test drive city and highway to get a feel for the CVT. I did over 6 times on different models up to 30 min a run.
You have a liberty, its one wheel front and one back pulling and this in no different.
