Thick roof pillars and theater-style seating combine to block rear visibility almost entirely

Visibility out the rear window all but disappears

Five stars, front impact—driver; five stars, front impact—passenger
NHTSA

Rollover resistance is low in the 2009 Jeep Commander, but the SUV performed well in crash tests.

When tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Commander scored three stars in the rollover test and received the best rating of five stars for frontal impact crash tests.

All Jeep Commanders includes four-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes, traction control, and an electronic stability system. Cars.com reports Jeep Commanders are also equipped with side curtain airbags for all three rows with tip sensors, so they'll deploy during a rollover. The Web site also states that the "stability system uses Chrysler's Electronic Roll Mitigation, which attempts to intuit an imminent rollover and trigger preventative braking measures." Kelley Blue Book notes that child door locks and an engine immobilizer are standard on the 2009 Jeep Commander, as well.

Although a rearview camera is available on the Commander, rear visibility is certainly an issue. Cars.com says that when the headrest-equipped third-row bench is upright, "visibility out the rear window all but disappears." ConsumerGuide concurs, stating, "Thick roof pillars and theater-style seating combine to block rear visibility almost entirely.”

Conclusion

In a tall vehicle like the 2009 Jeep Commander, the rearview camera becomes a necessity instead of an option. But overall, good crash-test scores assure that your family will stay safe.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
