SAFETY | 8 out of 10
Five stars, front impact
Thick roof pillars and theater-style seating combine to block rear visibility almost entirely
Visibility out the rear window all but disappears
Safety features on the 2010 Jeep Commander include side curtain airbags, stability control, and anti-lock brakes. Altogether, they add peace of mind to the Jeep's excellent performance in frontal crash tests—five stars in government trials. The Commander, though, has just a three-star rollover rating, thanks to its bulk and height.
When tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Commander only scored three stars in the rollover test but received the best rating of five stars for frontal impact crash tests.
All Jeep Commanders include 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. Cars.com also finds that the "stability system uses Chrysler's Electronic Roll Mitigation, which attempts to detect an imminent rollover and trigger preventative braking measures." Kelley Blue Book notes that child door locks and an engine immobilizer are also standard on the 2010 Jeep Commander.
Although a rearview camera is available on the Commander, rear visibility is certainly an issue. "Thick roof pillars and theater-style seating combine to block rear visibility almost entirely,” says ConsumerGuide, and Cars.com reports that when the headrest-equipped third-row bench is upright, "visibility out the rear window all but disappears."
Although crash-test results are scarce for the 2010 Commander, it promises a good level of safety.
