The Jeep Commander is a mid-sized SUV introduced at the 2005 New York
Auto Show as a 2006 model year production vehicle. It is a 7-passenger
SUV and is just 2 inches longer than the Jeep Grand Cherokee. It has
much more boxy styling, with an upright windshield and squared-off
sides. The roof is stepped for the second- and third-row seats (which
are mounted higher than the first-row seats), but is disguised, as on
the GMC Envoy XL, by a roof rack. It also features three moonroofs.
Jeep is the third company to produce a vehicle called the Commander,
after the Studebaker Commander and the Scammell Commander.
Supposedly the Jeep Wagoneer was the Commander's initial inspiration,
this may evident as its exterior may resemble the styling.
The Commander offers a base V6 engine with two optional V8s including
the new Hemi:
- 3.7 L
- 4.7 L
- 5.7 L
