The 2023 Jeep Commander is going on sale once again. You might recall this particular SUV as a three-row mid-size utility vehicle. For those who are unaware, Jeep has been selling the Commander model in China since 2018. That applies to both the Grand Commander and the Commander PHEV.
Jeep, nevertheless, has bigger plans, according to the most recent sources, this model is going to South America. This future SUV should have a structure similar to the Jeep Compass. However, it’s still unclear how it got to the United States. What we know about this model, including spy photos and interior teases, is included below.
Jeep Commander Styling
It’s intriguing that the brand-new 2023 Jeep Commander was spotted in chilly Scandinavia. Europe won’t have this model, which is official. But it’s headed to South America—specifically, Brazil. The prototype has more of the Jeep Compass’s appearance. This is hardly shocking because the Commander will take many cues from this model, including its chassis.
With the same headlamps, the front fascia appears to be quite familiar. The grille, though, appears to be a little different. New lower intakes and daytime running lights were also visible. With new wheels, the side profile has excellent, clean lines. The taillights are quite attractive, much like on the Grand Cherokee model.
The cabin of the upcoming 2023 Jeep Commander is seen in a recent teaser film that Jeep published. We are initially taken aback by the sheer volume of high-caliber items. That includes the quality of materials as well as the attractive accents on and around the dash. It’s encouraging to notice that the center console appears to be brand-new. The second row appears to be capable of being folded flat, and the seats appear to be made of leather.
The Commander will include an all-digital instrument cluster in addition to several USB connections. The availability of a 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen is more significant. On the other hand, we are unsure of whether this unit is an option or a part of standard features. Although the Commander will reportedly feature a third row of seats, the future Compass and Commander will share the same platform.
Under the Hood
Under the hood, the new 2023 Jeep Commander will most likely deploy a 1.3-liter engine. This is not official, but borrowing a drivetrain from another brand’s model is the most likely outcome. Thig gasoline engine will be standard, per reports, and it will include a 6-speed automatic transmission. Some experts are strongly suggesting a diesel powertrain option that will come with a 9-speed automatic gearbox.
Of course, Asian and South American Commanders will not have the same engine lineup. Still, we are waiting for more official words from Jeep. As we know that the Commander will use Compass’ platform, this SUV will come with a front-wheel-drive setup. An all-wheel-drive system will be available as an option, naturally.
2023 Jeep Commander Release Date, Price
The forthcoming 2023 Jeep Commander will go on sale in South America, next month. More precisely, this SUV will hit the dealerships in Brazil. As we said, Commander is also available in China. The price is not available at the moment, but we don’t expect Commander to be an expensive model.
