To all members, when you first drove YOUR XK/Commander, what statement are you telling everyone -- (more like "What Your Car Says About You") --?

I think one of the big reasons I like the Commander is because it has the same look/feel of the classic Land Rovers and the G series Benz and of course the XJ.

It conveys class and good taste and is a little understated - unlike the Hummer line. It's kind of like old money vs. new money.

I have always liked the Discovery but really wanted an American nameplate so I was thrilled when the Commander came out because it's like now we have our own Disco/LR3.

It's a design that will still be fresh looking in a old school kind of way for a long time. True off-roaders have always been somewhat of a box on wheels.

My Commander says "I will not bow to your tree hugging hippie environmentalist pipedreams". And my skull hitch receiver says with its glowing red eyes "don't rearend me for I am death itself"

I am rugged, yet refined.

I know what I can do and don't have to be driving 6 feet higher than you to prove it.

I have always wanted a jeep. Especially this one. It isnt a cookie-cutter SUV. I love their name, what they stand for, and their capabilities. It is the perfect size for me. Not too big and not too small.

I'm with you walkjon. We were stuck between the MB ML350 or the Commander. We bought the Commander cause people don't look at it like they do a Mercedes. Same money, more understated.

That its small enough to get places other SUVs can't, and that its powerful enough to both tow things and eat hybrids for lunch.

That and eviro-hippies can kiss my a$$ as well. I love driving around Boulder with my Hydrocarbon Powered Eco Vehicle sticker and getting the strange looks.
