Nice Presentation, short on performance

2009 Jeep Commander Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
I rented a Jeep Commander V-8 for a long weekend of 800+ miles of driving my daughter home from college. If you like the classic Jeep look on outside it's appealing, but performance overall leaves much to be desired. 20 MPG highway is acceptable, but 15 city isn't, even for a V8 SUV. Interior has nice storage compartments, but seating is subpar, unsupportive, and DEADLY on long drives. Sight lines and visibility are however an asset.
