Re: Which engine did you get with your Commander?

I noticed a mileage improvement after 1,200 miles or so.

I'm at 8,000 miles now, and enjoying every one.

Re: Which engine did you get with your Commander?

Frankly, at this time, I do not care about the gas consumption. I took it into consideration before I bought the car and knew that it is heavy and large, aerodynamically shaped like a box and got one of the largest engines around. If I want to be frugal, I drive one of my other cars, or would have bought a Prius. When the kids are out of the house and I do not drive on weekends from tennis tournament to tennis tournament across state lines, I can scale down. Right now the JC Hemi is the perfect choice for my family

We got the 4.7L V8 and it is great (except the 12 MPG at 3,500K miles - still looking for the improvement, even a little would be nice). The only reason I wish we would have gotten the Hemi is I think our Comm would have looked nice pulling our boat.

I traded in my 4.7 for the 5.7 when the new incentives came out this month and the Hemi IS the way to go. My MPG is slightly better if not the same and I have 90 more horses under the hood when I need it.

Re: Which engine did you get with your Commander?

I got the HEMI and only have about 660 miles on it, so i'm still bein easy on the motor. But I love it and am absolutely satisfied with it so far! IMO you need a big engine for a vehicle this huge!

Re: Which engine did you get with your Commander?

Hesitantly bought th V6 as this was the only JC my wife liked in color and options (Black 65th Anniversary). However, the horsepower equals our traded-in 8 cylinder Expedition.
The performance of this vehicle is more than adequate. Perhaps only psychologically I would have preferred the 4.7 V8. As I truly enjoy this Vehicle I'm sure I will quickly qet over that it's a 6.

Re: Which engine did you get with your Commander?

I bought the 4.7L, cuz I could afford that one. I wish like hell I could have bought a 5.7 hemi limited with chrome trim and all the fixin's. But that was an extra 10K more than the one I bought!

Re: Which engine did you get with your Commander?

I went with the 6 cyl and have no problems with it. The 4.7 or the Hemi would be great, but I got a sweet deal on the 6. The dealer gave me the $5000 off, 0% interest, and my pops supplier discount. I can handle the 6 at that deal! Averaging about 16 mpg with 50/50 city/hwy. Went to Asheville last weekend and got 19.8 on the trip down and 19.2 on the trip back.

Re: Which engine did you get with your Commander?

i specifically wanted the V6 and i'm happy with it. went on a 2 hour trip with 5 adults and one 13 yr old and power was fine. i get about 15mpg in town and about 20 highway. can't complain about that for the size of the vehicle.

i pull a 5000# trailer with my truck and kinda wish i would've got the 4.7 so i could pull with the jeep if needed. has anyone towed with the V6 and if so how was it?
