CONSIDERING BUYING A COMMANDER, have questions? Start here!

I am thinking about buying either of the Two. I like both, but am leaning towards the Commander for saftey reasons. It comes with side air bag curtains standard. They are both about the same in price. The Commander has a third row for seating.The Jeep has a 3yr 36K Bumper to Bumper. Hummer has a 4Yr 50K Bumper to Bumper. I am unsure which one to get. Please help me decide. (It will Be Black!)
Thanks Jeff

06 Jeep Commander


06 Hummer H3

Re: 06 Jeep Commander or 06 Hummer H3

I got the Commander, The 4.7 V-8 is a proven motor & has plenty of power. Runs on regular too. We have two other Jeeps in the family, It's a Jeep thing....you know!!!

Think about this; Are there any Hummer dealers in your area for maintenance or warranty work? I'd hate to have to drive too far for service.

Should I get the 4.7 or the Hemi?

Newbie here guys. I am going tomorrow to purchase my Commander. Do any of you have the Hemi option? I am not to sure wheither to get the V8 or hemi? I guess I will drive them both to find out. My wife and I are Jeep finatictics. This will be our 5th Jeep in 3yrs. We are going to trade our 05 Sport in for Commander. I also have an 04 Rubicon, that I off road, which I am thinking of trading in 07 when they come out with the TK (the 4 door Wrangler).

Re: Hey guys!

Yes, there are some members that have the Hemi & they will probably offer their opinion soon. I have the 4.7 V8. It's got plenty of power. I decided against the Hemi because; it has the cylinder drop technology so it will save on fuel & I don't need that, too new for me. two plugs per cylinder, a little more to tune up. But if you want the power & don't care about spending a bit more on fuel, get the Hemi. I don't plan on pulling a trailer or anything is another reason of mine.

Re: Hey guys!

My father has the Hemi in is Dodge 1500 and I'm not to crazy about it. I am with you though, the Displacement System is a bit more confusing and more complicated. I will be pulling a small trailer with a couple of ATV's & smowmobiles, but nothing really big.

Re: Hey guys!

I have a buddy at work who has the Hemi in his 1500 PU, it doesn't have the cylinder drop feature. It's an 05 Dodge
