There will be a Jeep Commander 2010-2012 (?)

Unlike the nasty rumours over the past year(s) are suggesting, it seems that the Commander will keep on living, at least for the next three years. I've heard/read from numerous sources that there will be a facelift-version of the Commander, and it will be presented in March/April this year! Even more interestingly, some rumours suggest that it would be presented in the Geneva Motor Show this year, which does indeed take place March 5-15th. Switzerland is the most important market for Jeep in Europe, and for sure there are enough wealthy people who can buy one in CH. Therefore the location would also make sense.

Should this really be the case, I think it's clear that they will continue to offer it at least until 2012, and if things improve by then, why not even longer.

In other words, at least I'm not throwing in the towel just yet, we might have some pleasant surprises heading our way. :-) Let's see.

If this has already been discussed here, sorry about it, but at least I didn't find another thread.

Supposedly, the Commander was going to get the axe after the 2009 model year. I haven't heard anything about it lately, so maybe the plans changed? I don't know any way to confirm it either way...

Maybe it'll become an export only model for Jeep?

Actually that thought did cross my mind. They are already assembling the European Commanders in Austria (at least the diesel-ones), could be the reason. Continue production there, quit in the US. But somehow that doesn't sound very sensible for an American company...

Wow, I had no idea they were still building the old Cherokees at all! That's awesome...those things were very popular around here. I work with a lady that has the most mint black Cherokee ever. She obsessess over it, so it looks like it just came off the showroom floor. I'll have to show her that picture. It looks like they just changed the nose a bit, but the rest of the body seems to be the same. Don't like that new nose though...
