I saw a road test on television for this Jeep and it performed very well, looked very Jeep. I think this suv is going to do very well. It makes me wonder if it will take away it's own Grand Cherokee sales.

Yeah, but who the hell wants to buy a Jeep with three rows of seats and only two doors? :huh:

I have always liked the look of 2 door SUVs. They could make the commander in a 2 row seat version in 2 doors. It would look very cool.

The biggest problem with most 2dr SUVs (except for the XJ Cherokee and the old large Cherokee) is that they usually have pickup doors that are too short to allow easy ingress/egress to the back seats.. I used to have a Bronco II and that was a problem with it..

All you have to do is wait then. There will be many Jeep's based off the new Wrangler. There will be a pickup (Gladiator), a 2 door (probably SWB and LWB), and a 4door (probably LWB and fixed top).

What a complete train wreck! Looks worse than the Mitisbishi Raider they copied it from! I would rather pack in some M-80s, then squat over a flaming Hibachi than be seen in this flaming turd of a station wagon.

it doesn't look that bad. I just wish the Durrango was a bit more "Squarish".... like this. Oh well, I will applaud Jeep for this, for now at least.

The Isuzu trooper was a bit of a cult vehicle and I see the Commander appealing to the same folks who liked the old Trooper, and new Land Rover LR3 for that matter. A big, boxy, capable SUV. This thing will be huge with college professors and academic elitists. Edited by regfootball

Checked one model out last week (base model equivalent to Grand Cherokee's Laredo level), and while it looks much better in person and it has one of few new Jeep truck dashboards that don't look like boxy, dated junk (i.e. Dakota), it was still disappointing. The cloth felt fake, and the second and third rows were pretty cramped, and third-row access wasn't that great, and third-row headroom for a 5.4.5' person like me wasn't great, though its not a dare like the Suzuki XL-7's. I also read that the seats-down cargo volume is only 1 cubic foot more than the otherwise-nice Grand Cherokee's volume, which in Commander is a still-pitiful 68 cubic feet, especially for a truck with a taller height and boxier profile than its donor vehicle. And I'm not getting the trend that when a vehicle is redesigned, yet is even taller, cargo space drops. There's no excuse at all. Overall, from what I have seen so far, the Commander seems to be little more than a wasted effort (that had so much potential-it really would have helped if Jeep STRETCHED THE WHEELBASE!), and despite the nice and differentiated steering wheel, I can't rate this boxy rig any higher than a C.
