2010 Jeep Commander Reviews

Vehicle Overview
The Jeep Commander is the first Jeep to have three rows of seats; it seats up to seven people. Sport and Limited trim levels are available, as are three four-wheel-drive systems. The Commander's competitors include the Toyota 4Runner, Nissan Pathfinder and Ford Explorer.

New for 2010
For 2010, the Commander dropped its 4.7-liter V-8 engine and the Overland trim.

Exterior
The Commander features an upright windshield and rear window. Its angular sheet metal and vertical side glass give it a classic Jeep profile and a rugged, upright, military look.

  • Standard body-colored door handles and front/rear bumpers
  • Standard power, heated mirrors
  • Standard remote keyless entry
  • 17- or 18-inch wheels
  • Optional xenon headlamps
  • Optional dual-panel sunroof


Interior
The SUV holds up to seven occupants on two or three rows of seats. Each row is slightly higher than the one ahead of it, enhancing forward visibility for rear occupants. The second- and third-row seats fold forward to create a flat load floor. A stepped roof provides headroom for rear occupants.
  • Cloth, leather or perforated leather upholstery
  • Wood-grain and leather-wrapped center console
  • Standard air conditioning
  • Optional dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Standard power locks and windows
  • Standard steering-wheel-mounted cruise control
  • Standard eight-way power driver seat and optional four-way power passenger seat
  • Optional second-row overhead TV monitor and satellite television
  • Optional navigation system


Under the Hood
Three full-time four-wheel-drive systems and two transfer cases are available. In ascending order of ruggedness, Jeep calls its four-wheel-drive systems Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II.

Hill descent control, which is designed to keep the SUV's speed to a crawl when traversing difficult terrain, is optional. Hill start assist is also optional; it keeps the Commander from rolling backward on an incline. The 5.7-liter engine has a multi-displacement system that alternates between four-cylinder and V-8 mode for higher fuel efficiency.
  • 210-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6 with 235 pounds-feet of torque
  • 357-hp, 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 with 389 pounds-feet of torque
  • Five-speed automatic transmission
  • Rear- and four-wheel-drive systems available


Safety
Safety features include:
  • Available rear backup camera
  • Standard side curtain airbags for all rows
  • Standard antilock brakes
  • Standard electronic stability system and traction control
  • Standard Smart Key that immobilizes the engine in a theft attempt
  • Standard rear park assist
  • Available rain-sensing wipers and automatic headlamps

Great Commander

Roomy, in good condition, low mileage for a truck 8 years old. Large cargo area was one reason I choose it. Interior in great shape, Sirius Radio available, good tires, very comfortable. Great large ... Read Full Review

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
