What Vehicle to Replace Commander?

Have the 2007 XK. 104,000 miles. Time has come to look for a new vehicle. What vehicle would be a good replacement for someone who was happy with the XK and all it had to offer. Looking to go new before any major problem ($$) occurs. I figure others have had to do this already.

2007 JEEP COMMANDER SPORT 4X4
Steel Blue Metallic
4.7L V8
QT II
Trailer Tow Group IV
P245/65R17 OWL GY Forteras
Roof Rail Crossbars
Fog Lamps

May I ask why you're getting rid of it?

I assume you're looking for another suv?

An 08? LOL, there is no other vehicle out there that I would prefer in its class... A rover? Hummer? Naaaaa... I would stick with the commander personally.

Looking to go brand new. Should of been more clear in my post. I mean out of the available brand new vehicles which do you think would be a good replacement for someone that was very happy with the Commander?

Based off the specs in your sig..
No QDII so you're not looking for an equivalent vehicle with lockers
No lift/big tires so you're not looking to go offroad often
Sport model 4.7L so you're looking for V8 but not $$ of a Rover

... I'd take a look at the
GMC Yukon 5.3L 4x4.
Dodge Durango

I say if you are happy with it, keep it. Even if something breaks, it's got to be cheaper than buying a new SUV.
