2006 Jeep Commander

2006 jeep commanderWhen the 2006 Jeep Commander first came out I was not sure how I felt about the 2006 jeep commander.  To me it looked like the Jeep Cherokee was brought back to life, but given a major face lift.  I almost had to ask myself if the Jeep Cherokee was taken off the market in 2001 for this reason? 

The 2006 Jeep Commander brings back the classic "boxy" jeep look I always liked.  The 2006 Jeep Commander looks like it was inspired from the classic Willy's wagons from the 1940's-1960's.  I was not particularly thrilled when the Liberty came out a few years back.  To me it looked like they cut off the front of the Jeep Wrangler and attached it to the back of a Jeep Cherokee.  Finally, Jeep has introduced a great looking vehicle.  Check out some pictures of the 2006 Jeep Commander
