New Jeep Commander Limited with less that 200 miles on it. I noticed the temp gauge hovering around the middle of the gauge today driving through town, which seemed a bit high in my opinion since it was only 70ish outside, and I'm not towing anything. The gauge receeded a bit after driving for a while without stopping.

I don't have a frame of reference on this so I was wondering what anyone elses opinion on this might be. Running hot? or normal?

Thanks in advance!

Congratulations on yur new Commander. Mine has 2000 miles on it. That seems normal. In my opinion. That is what my hemi limited does...

I also have a HEMI and mine stays somewhere in the middle. I guess that's normal for the HEMI.

Just another two cents, my temp gauge reads right at or below the halfway mark regardless of whats going on around it. I just got back from a trip from Denver to LA then to the Grand Canyon and back through the back roads of Colorado and the gauge was never above the half. We took I-70 up the mountains (with 2 adults, 5 kids and a bunch of luggage) and then around Baker, CA the outside temp was 124F. The gauge was always at half. I loved it. What I didn't love was how fast the gas disappeared when the temp was high.
