A quote from the CEO of Chrysler on the commander: “That car was unfit for human consumptuon." “We sold some. But I don’t know why people bought them.”

Economics-They didn't sell enough of them to make it profitable. Just like any other manufacturer, if it don't make money, it ain't worth making.

I had a commander, not gonna lie. I was happy when I bought it, and happier when I traded it in

I drove my old boss'es 09 i think and it was a good rig but nothing special. Most people didn't need something like it you either got a hemi WK a truck or if you really needed the people room a suburban
