Which engine did you get with your Commander?

...And do you regret the choice now? What would you choose if you could do it all over again?


I'm very happy with my Hemi.

Re: Which engine did you get with your Commander?

got the v6 I am happy with it. getting almost 17 mpg on average. The only thing I dont like is I cant lift the jeep. I think you would need at least the v8 for that.

Got the 4.7. Happy, I know gas isn't going to get cheaper. The xtra couple mpg will matter.

Re: Which engine did you get with your Commander?

got a HEMI

loving it!

way i see it, if someone offered me $2.75 to walk 12 miles i'd laugh in their face

i'll gladly keep filling up this thirsty beast, she deserves it...and i get 5% back on gas purchases w/ my discover card

Re: Which engine did you get with your Commander?

I bought the 4.7 liter, if the Hemi wasn't packaged with everything else I would have bought it, but I didn't need the limited with Nav, leather, roof ect.. I needed a winter driver so this was my best option, with that said I've been happy with my small V-8.

Re: Which engine did you get with your Commander?

4.7 is not a small V8 in my opinion. I have the Hemi on my Commander but I have a 4.7 on a Grand Cherokee and it has been a great engine. I have never felt it was underpowered, even in the mountains off-road at Canyonlands NP, Utah. You will continue to be happy with it.
