Jeep Commander - Great for Off-road Driving

The 2010 Jeep Commander offers us plenty of space and capabilities that can take a lot of passengers far off-road. It's clear that the 2010 Commander's engineering when into off-road performance, and it really shows. The Commander is a niche vehicle for people who like to go off-road and need a lot of passenger room. The 2010 Command is one of the lowest priced in its class and comes with some high-tech interior features.

The downside is that the Commander has a thirsty engine and what has been called an inhospitable interior. The 2010 Command is nearly unstoppable off-road, but some drivers find its ride rough and trucky, and its engines unrefined. The base has the standard 3.7-liter V6 capable of 210 horsepower. The limited model is a bit more power, and comes with a 5.7-liter HEMI engine. The EPA ratings for the rear wheel drive Commander with the V6 engine gets 15 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway.

The 2010 Jeep Commander is in a class that's dominated by sleek styling, that's why it's so strange that the Commander is so decidedly boxy. Jeep fans like the retro-inspired looks, but it doesn't look like it will impress the ordinary consumer. Inside, the Commander has seating for seven, but there are complaints that the seats aren't comfortable, the materials are cheap, and that some instruments are hard to read. The interior does come with a list of standard features and high-tech options for those looking for that extra something.

The 2010 Commander is largely a carryover from the 2009 model year and is still available in two trims: Sport and Limited. It's also available as a rear-wheel or four-wheel drive vehicle.
