1. Why is the commander also called the xk? just shorter to say?
2. Does the 3rd row seating make the Commander feel too bulky? Almost to big to drive?
3. I want the v8 and looks of a commander, but what about the Liberty? It's a little smaller and I almost think the commander is too big. (I don't own one. I was looking at them)

1. See this thread---> http://www.jeepcommander.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5882&page=5

2. No

3. Maybe you should look at them and compare. I love my Commander, as do most members here.

I will answer #2&3, don't have the information for #1.

2. I owned a Land Rover Discovery II SD, before owning my commander. The Land Rover was nice, but i found that the Commander had that better appeal to me. It was V8 or nothing for me, the 4.7 and 5.7 are going to run and pull you over any rocks or hill you would like. The Commander is a larger vehicle but nothing like a Suburban or an Expedition, it much more enjoyable to drive and still has the capabilities with 7 people in the car.

3. I couldn't see myself in a liberty, don't shoot me Jeep lovers but it feels "girly", but thats my perspective. It has the perfect size space and needs for me, but it isn't WAY to big handle.

Hope that helps, Go to a jeep dealership and give one a test drive. It will be worth it!!

I have 06 XK wife has an 08 KK(Liberty)The liberty is a nice around town car and if 4X4 would work as a hunting/fishing vehicle for one person. When we purchased the KK I had hoped to reduce trip miles on the XK but it never happened the XK is too comfortable and roomier on long trips 4-16 hrs.
