Jeep has taken the wraps off its new (2022) Commander SUV in Brazil. The new Jeep Commander is the brand’s newest 7-seater SUV and will be manufactured at the brand’s facility in Brazil. It will be positioned above the brand’s Compass offering.
The three-row SUV measures 4,769 mm in length, 1,859 mm in width and 1,682 mm in height. The SUV has a wheelbase of 2,794 mm.
The Commander borrows a lot of design cues from many of Jeep’s larger models sold internationally. The new Jeep Commander features the brand’s signature grille up front, flanked on either side by sleek LED headlamp clusters. The LED daytime running lights are integrated with the fog lamps, positioned on the front bumpers.
The interior is mostly shared with the Compass, but the Commander comes with different options for the trim and the upholstery making it look more premium. The biggest difference though is that the Commander is roomier with an extra pair of seats in the third row. The second row can move up to 140 mm (5.5 inches) forwards and backwards, prioritizing legroom or boot space, while the second and third rows are reclining. It comes packed with plenty of premium features and tech, including a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Engine options include a 1.3-litre turbo-petrol engine producing 185 hp/ 270 Nm and a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel unit churning out 178 hp/ 380 Nm.
The petrol unit is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission powering just the front wheels. The diesel engine is paired with a 9-speed automatic gearbox, with 4×4 as standard.
