About Jeep Commander
During the 1999 auto show circuit, Jeep unveiled the Commander concept car. An experimental direct methanol fuel cell produced electricity to charge a nickel–metal hydride battery pack was incorporated in the concept. A severe duty electric motor on each axle provided full-time four-wheel drive. For off-road travel, the suspension could be increased 4 inches (102 mm). The overall styling had an impact on the creation of the third-generation Grand Cherokee, which was six years away at the time. The concept automobile was about 8 inches (203 mm) wider than real Grand Cherokees, but had the same height. 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.
At the 2005 New York Auto Show, the Jeep Commander (XK and the diesel-powered XH export variant) made its début as a five- or seven-passenger version of the Jeep Liberty. It was meant to appeal to customers who desired a three-row SUV that was only two inches longer than the Jeep Grand Cherokee with its two rows of seats and built on the same assembly line.
The Grand Cherokee on which it was built shared its unibody design, independent short/long arm front suspension, and 5-link live rear axle. It had a squared-off side and an upright windscreen. The roof rack concealed the tiered roof, similar to the GMC Envoy XL and Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT, allowing the second and third rows to be installed higher than the first row.
Electronic stability control, traction control, electronic roll mitigation, backup sensors, immobilizer, 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 were all included as standard features. Automatic wipers, a Boston Acoustics premium sound system with 276 watts, 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 were among the optional features. HID headlights and smartbeam headlights were also offered.
A power front sunroof and two smaller sunroofs over the second-row seats were featured with the optional Command View sunroof package. A DVD player, 9-inch (229-mm) TV, and backup camera were included in the Commander’s optional entertainment package. The Commander featured a V6 Diesel engine in Europe and a few additional markets such as Chile, South Africa, and South Korea.
