Traditional Jeep Styling but with Newly Designed Features

Designers drew heavily on traditional Jeep styling when they put together the Jeep Commander, but Jeep’s new sport utility vehicle has plenty of fresh features to go along with the classic look that Jeep enthusiasts expect.

Commander Seating Interior

The Jeep Commander has three rows of stadium style seating, with each row slightly higher than the row in front of it to give all passengers a good view of the road ahead. The stepped roof above the seats keeps headroom plentiful for all.

A front sun roof is available and tinted and fixed skylights, complete with shades, are an option over the second row. A rear DVD system is also available.

Commander Cargo

The second and third row seats fold flat to create a flat floor for hauling cargo. The Commander is two inches longer than the 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and shares its 109.5 wheelbase.

You’ll find an L-shaped storage bin in the floor behind the third row seats.

Three Full Time 4WD Systems

Quadra-Trac I#174; . uses a single-speed transfer case to transfer power to all wheels. There’s no lever to shift; no low range available.

Quadra-Trac II#174; . is a full-time active 4WD system that can be electronically shifted into low range, or into neutral for towing the Commander behind another vehicle.

Quadra-Drive II#174; . offers Electronic Limited Slip Differentials (ELSD), which gives you the ability to lock front, rear and center differentials for maximum traction capabilities.
