The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Jeep Commander is at home on the trail, although its interior and on-the-road comfort leave a lot to be desired. For a truck-based SUV, the Ford is versatile and capable, with a great interior and a number of safety and entertainment features. For a smoother ride, consider a car-based SUV instead.
