Jeep has officially unveiled the new seven-seater Commander crossover. Designed specifically for Latin America, the model largely repeated the restyled Compass, but at the same time received an original appearance and a spacious three-row interior.
All the “uniqueness” of the Brazilian Commander lies in the design: slightly modified (compared to the Compass) headlights with separate LED daytime running lights, chrome trim on the front bumper, thinner headlights and an increased glass line, which has just been extended for the third row of seats.
In terms of the interior, as noted by Where and What, the new Commander is absolutely identical to the Compass: it has the same front panel architecture, a digital instrument panel and a modern media system with a large touchscreen that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
In terms of power units, the novelty was unified with the Brazilian-made Compass: the base includes a 1.3-liter 185-horsepower gasoline turbo engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, and in more expensive versions – 2 , 0-liter 190-horsepower turbodiesel, aggregated with a nine-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive with a rear axle clutch.
The production of the new Jeep Commander was set up in Brazilian Goyana, where the local versions of the Compass and Renegade models are already produced. Sales will begin in October, and the minimum price tag will be 38 thousand dollars.
