The 2010 Jeep Commander
is a seven-passenger, midsize sport utility vehicle (SUV) that is available in two trim levels: Sport and Limited. The Sport trim's standard engine is a 3.7-liter V-6, while the Limited boasts a 5.7-liter V-8 engine which is also available as an option on the Sport. All trims come with a five-speed automatic transmission. Both the Sport and Limited trims are offered in either two- or four-wheel drive. Properly equipped, a V-8-powered two-wheel drive Commander can tow a maximum of 7,400 pounds, while the V-6 trims top out at 6,500 pounds.
While the Jeep Commander possesses spectacular off-road abilities, the cabin of the Commander sports leather, user-friendly controls, and a comfortable interior. With raised seating, the Commander has a spacious second row of seats, but the leg and head room is a bit cramped, and the third row of seating is more for cargo and small passengers. Fuel economy is in the 14 mpg city / 19 mpg highway range, the Commander boasts perfect frontal crash test scores.
