Engine temp

Just bought the Commander from my dad who babied it it's entire life. I'm finding conflicting information about where the temps should be. It also takes longer than I would expect it to warm up. Currently the needle is between the half way mark, top center, and the quarter mark on the left of the needle. Torque app is showing it at 200F which seems a touch low. I am used to most of the vehicles I have driven and currently drive having the needle dead in the middle of the gauge. Wondering if the thermostat might be stuck open.

What are you guys seeing as normal conditions?

That's always where mine sat. I think the factory thermostats are also 200, maybe 210 thermostats. I'm sure you're good.

At running temperature, typically my temperature gauge sits at about the half way mark, or slightly under.
