The Jeep Commander, a seven-passenger SUV, stands as an example of Jeep's commitment to rugged luxury. Designed for versatility and off-road prowess, the Commander also delivers on the comfort and features that modern drivers demand. It's a blend of classic Jeep design elements with modern technology, providing the best of both worlds.
Introduced in 2005 for the 2006 model year, the Jeep Commander was the company's first attempt in years to offer a three-row SUV. While its sales run was relatively short-lived (it was discontinued in 2010), the Commander left an indelible mark on the Jeep lineup with its boxy styling and high utility value, setting a precedent for future Jeep models like the Grand Cherokee.
The Jeep Commander came with a choice of three engines. The base engine was a 3.7-liter V6 that produced 210 horsepower. For those requiring more power, a 4.7-liter V8 was available, offering 235 horsepower. At the top of the range was a 5.7-liter HEMI V8, producing a substantial 330 horsepower, which enabled robust acceleration and strong towing capabilities. Read more
All engines were mated to an automatic transmission, with a choice of rear-wheel drive or various four-wheel-drive systems, reinforcing the Jeep Commander’s off-road credentials.
The Jeep Commander's design can be described as "retro-utilitarian." The boxy shape is reminiscent of older Jeep models, such as the Cherokee, but with a more modern and upscale touch. The exterior features a seven-slot grille, squared-off sides, and angular wheel wells, providing the SUV a rugged appearance.
Inside, the Jeep Commander has three rows of seats, accommodating up to seven passengers. The interior was designed with practicality and comfort in mind, offering features like power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone climate control, and optional leather upholstery.
For tech features, the Commander included a CD stereo system with an auxiliary jack, a navigation system, and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, depending on the trim and package.
