For 2010, Limited trims now have as standard a 5.7-liter V8, power rear liftgate and body-colored exterior mirrors. The Overland trim has been dropped from the Commander line up, as has the 4.7-liter V8 engine.
Changes for 2009 include more power and better fuel economy with the 5.7-liter HEMI V8, and the addition of tire pressure monitoring system information to the instrument cluster. New options include auto-leveling HID headlamps, rain sensing wipers and new Leather Appearance Package.
Jeep purists never got over the loss of the original Cherokee, so it's no surprise the
2010 Jeep Commander bears a striking resemblance to the former's beloved and boxy design. Unlike the old Cherokee, the Commander offers far better interior accommodations, including a third-row seat. The Commander is Jeep's largest
SUV to date and, although it shares much of its chassis and suspension with the Grand Cherokee (as well as the availability of a HEMI V8 engine), no one will ever mistake the two. While the Commander doesn't offer the same cargo space as a full-sized
Chevrolet Tahoe or
Ford Expedition, it should suit most families looking for a workable combination of comfort, power and superior off-road ability.
I Love IT!

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 100,000
"I really really luv my jeep! I am writing a review b cuz I always look at review to help me when I purchase anything of great value-so I hope this helps. This jeep rides great,handles great & does awesome in bad weather! I drive approx. an hour to work so on bad winter days (I live in the country-most roads aren't cleared)I need 4whl drive-this jeep is amazing. The ONLY problem I have w/it is the gas milage. 17 mpg not good. So if that doesn't bother u thn I think u will too luv this jeep."
"This SUV is a real pleasure to own. The main problem I have with it is deciding whether my wife or I will drive it since we both love it so much. I have the HEMI engine with the Overland package so it is fully loaded with navigation, back set TV, sun roof, and power everything. The acceleration is incredible - it is one of the fastest SUVs out there - and it handles very well. It does not feel top heavy like some larger SUVs, yet, with 7 available seats, you can still haul a lot of people if needed. The interior is luxurious while still retaining the Jeep ruggedness. And the outside has a very polished look with the traditional Jeep styling. I have received many compliments about how good it looks. You can pay more for less but why. I strongly recommend this vehicle."
"I have owned this SUV for 5years/50,000 miles and have several observations. First off, immediately after purchasing my family and I survived a 55mph collision without more than soft tissue damage. It has been rebuilt and driven w/o issue since. A rugged SUV! Thats the good. Now my issues: Gas milage V-6 is consistently 16-18 mpg with a soft foot. Driver blind spots due to stadium seating, adults sit to high in back stadium seat and can't see out, Think car sick!. Starter sits exposed to road salt and has been replaced 3 times The dealer told me this issue. The cloth seats permanently stain when exposed to moisture, very loaded with plastic inside and out, steering is sensitive with a high CG and scary for inexperienced drivers. Not my teenaged drivers favorite vehicle."
