About Jeep Commander
The Jeep Commander XK and XH (export diesel) is a full-size SUV that was manufactured from 2005 to 2010 by the Jeep division of the American manufacturer Chrysler.
Jeep exhibited a concept car named Commander during the 1999 auto show circuit. The concept featured an experimental direct methanol fuel cell that produced electricity to charge a nickel–metal hydride battery pack. Full-time four-wheel drive was by a severe duty electric motor on each axle.The suspension could be raised 4 inches (102 mm) for traversing off-road purposes. The overall styling influenced the development of the third-generation Grand Cherokee that was at that time six years away.The concept car had the same height as production Grand Cherokees, but was about 8 inches (203 mm) wider. This allowed for an interior featuring an extra wide center console in the front and three bucket seats in the second row. The Commander concept had no relation to the production SUV.
The production version of the Jeep Commander (XK and the diesel-powered XH export version) debuted at the 2005 New York Auto Show as a five- or seven-passenger counterpart of the Jeep Liberty. It was developed to target consumers who wanted a three-row SUV, but designed to be only two inches longer than the Jeep Grand Cherokee with its two-rows of seats as well as to be assembled on the same production line.
It shared its unibody construction, independent short/long arm front suspension and its 5-link live rear axle with the Grand Cherokee on which it was based. It featured an upright windshield and squared-off sides. Its stepped roof was disguised by the roof rack; a design similar to the GMC Envoy XL and Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT. This allowed the second and third-row seats to be mounted higher than the first-row seats.
Standard features included: electronic stability control, traction control, electronic roll mitigation, back up sensors, immobiliser, front dual-stage and side curtain airbags, TPMS, power heated mirrors, remote keyless entry, automatic headlights, UConnect infotainment system and a full-size spare wheel. Some optional features included: automatic wipers, a 276-watt Boston Acoustics premium sound system, hands-free phone integration, dual zone auto climate control, remote start, a power liftgate, heated first and second row seats, auto dimming mirrors, hill start assist, hill descent control, and adjustable pedals. Smartbeam headlights were also available as well as HID headlights.
The optional Command View sunroof package included a power front sunroof and two smaller sunroofs over the second row seats. The Commander also had an optional entertainment package which included a DVD player, 9 in (229 mm) TV, and backup camera. In Europe and certain other markets like Chile, South Africa, and South Korea, the Commander offered a V6 Diesel engine.
The Jeep Commander was discontinued after the 2010 model year. Chrysler announced that the 2011 Dodge Durango would be its successor; which is produced alongside its platform mate the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee at Jefferson North Assembly in Detroit, Michigan. Shortly after production ended, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said of the Commander, “That vehicle was unfit for human consumption. We sold some. But I don’t know why people bought them.
In 2017, Jeep released a three-row concept vehicle based on the Jeep Cherokee (KL) platform for the Chinese market, called the Jeep Yuntu, utilizing a plug-in gasoline/electric hybrid power train.
A three-row version of the Jeep Cherokee (KL) with slightly altered styling was released exclusively for the Chinese market named the Jeep Grand Commander. While similar in size to the original Commander, the Grand Commander will offer four-cylinder power. It will not be sold in any other markets.
Jeep is currently planning a successor to the Commander for the North American market, which is named the Jeep Grand Wagoneer and is expected to be available by 2022. Based on the Ram 1500 platform, the all-new vehicle will be built in Warren, Michigan and will share production with a possible Dodge Ramcharger or Dodge Town Wagon successor as well. The all-new vehicle, which was first shown to Jeep dealerships at a dealers meeting in 2017, was originally due for release in 2019.(source:wiki)
