Guess what just came off the transport?

We just got in our First 2006 Jeep Commander!

MSRP $29,895.00
Invoice $28,085.00
There is a $1,500.00 Rebate on them already...

Not much to this one it is a 2x4 with a 3.7l V-6.

The only options on this Jeep are the upgraded color: Inferno Red same as my Wife’s Jeep Grand Cherokee that was just involved in a accident. And there is also a towing package on this one.

Standard on all Commanders: Side Curtin Airbags and Back up sensors and 4 Wheel ABS.

Here are a few digital photos I just took and if you have any questions let me know, greg@JeepTales.com.

If we have ours, you can bet they are starting to arrive in dealerships all across the country this week.





I like the size to me it's not as big as a Durango and still feels like a Jeep.

You have to choose, are you going to carry people or stuff?

I do like the new stereo with a Jack for your I-pod, there is a nifty step to access the rear seat. Not too much room for storage if you have folks in all the seating loctions. I think we now have a Jeep that will force us to use the overhead rack.

One other thing; a guy my size can ride to dinner in the third row but I would not want to make a drive to Austin crammed in the back seat. The second row offer more than enought space for adults but the third row is a Kid club house only.

I think DC has another winner!

I'm glad you like it

Just think what it would be like to tow your Wrangler to a Jeep Jamboree in a Hemi Commander?

It will tow 7,200#

I think there is one in Mrs. Machado's future.

Hell man my Hemi Ram 1500 says it will tow 9200 lbs. I can only imagine what that Commander would get in mpg with that much weight behind it.

It looks cool for a stretched XJ though. He Greg do you know what the model designation is for that thing (TJ,ZJ,CJ)?
