Was wondering what you folks thought of the new Jeep Commander's Styling?

I said I like it. I had a 1999 Cherokee for 3 years and I loved it. I was very disappointed with the Liberty when that came out (just my opinion folks).

I'm glad Jeep had a boxy SUV out again.

Nice pics TX WJ.

I kinda dig it. Certainly no worse styling than the Nissan Xterra or Toyota Highlander that seems to be the target class of this thing, especially with the raised roofline for the second and third row seating. The fact that they were able to throw in the third row certainly will be appealing to folks, and it looks like they did a decent job of retaining cargo room when the second and third row is folded out of the way. The dual moonroof for the second row is kinda neat as well. It somewhat reminds me of the old Comanche trucks, just more seats

Nice pics, but to me it would have to grow on me. Just like I agree with these stickers I see on Jeeps - "It a Jeep Thing, You Wouldn't Understand"!

Boxy.... But, good. I think I like it. Kinda reminds me of the old Cherokee Chief from the mid 70's.

It's okay. I'm not crazy of the exterior, but I like the interior. I've had a couple of generations of Jeeps: '92 Cherokee (loved it until an idiot decided to run into me and total it) and '03 Liberty (current car and I wouldn't trade it), but I don't think I would buy this one.

I like the front and interior, but the side view isn't very appealing to me.

Honestly, I find it uninspiring. Not bad just not exciting.

Don't care too much for it, same as the new Grand. Looks like it's trying to be "old school" with the boxiness but also contemporary in other ways.

I'm more interested in the Gladiator

The design is pretty similar to the gold jeep in the right corner of the first picture. They should've gone more retro and styled it more like the white one.

...And then God came down from the heavens and ordered that a Cherokee, Land Rover Discovery, and a Nissan Xterra be mashed together to form a new car, one so ugly not even the world's ugliest man would drive one...

I dig it!

I used to work at a Jeep dealership, I liked the old Cherokee box-style SUVs. I still would like a 05-06 Grand Cherokee, those look like a smaller version of the Durango.

And you can still get one for under $30k. Minus the Hemi of course. (No biggie!)
