2008 Jeep Commander Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
I purchased a brand new 2008 Jeep Commander Limited, with everything... nav. system, commandview, power liftgate... everything, except the 5.7L Hemi, of which I am proud to say I don't have. I average around 14mpg with an occasional "floor it" moment.
The 4.7L V8- very capable. The driver's seat- when it's accended I feel very in control of this 5,000lb SUV. I'm head over heals about the power liftgate, partly because I'm lazy, and partly because every time I let it do its thing there is always someone with a dropped jaw.
Put the MDS (Multi-Displacment System) on the 4.7L V8- It'll improve fuel economy by at least 3 or 4 miles, and in this day and age, that make a world of difference.
