Why does the Jeep Commander exist? Does the world really need another SUV that approaches 5000 pounds? According to Jeep boss Jeff Bell, the answer is yes, and his reasoning is pretty simple: Jeep, legendary maker of all things SUV, didn’t have a seven-passenger vehicle in its line. So? So this: “Forty percent of full-size SUV sales [in 2004] went to trucks with third-row seats,” Bell said.

One of the biggest selling points for our family was the 7 seater capacity. Note that this is not an option, like with some SUV's but standard.
I find the breaks to be sort of soft but very very good. It seems to stop just like a car.
As for handling, I've thrown it into 90 degree turns at 15 and even 20 mph with amazing stability. It drives as good as a car because of it's computerized stability (Mercedes design) control and it really works.
