Brazilian Jeep® Commander Will Be Available In Two Trim-Levels!

New Vehicle Will Launch At End Of The Month...

As Jeep® Brazil prepares for the launch of its all-new seven-passenger D-segment 2022 Jeep Commander SUV at the end of the month, our good friends at Autos Segredos (Auto Secrets) are filling us in with some of the last-minute details before the vehicle gets unveiled.

According to Autos Segredos, the new D-SUV will be offered in two trim levels for the Brazilian market. Both Limited and Overland trims will be available at launch. It seems that the Commander will be offered not only as a bigger offering than the Compass on which it is based but will be more of a luxury-oriented as well.

We are also learning that both gasoline and diesel options will be available. Starting with the turbocharged 1.3-liter “FireFly” inline-four-cylinder gasoline engine from the Global Small Engine (GSE) family as the standard powerplant. The 1.3-liter will produce 180 horsepower (185 horsepower on ethanol) and 200 ft.-lb. (270Nm) of torque. Each model with the 1.3-liter will feature a T270 badge on the tailgate, representing the 270 Nm for the engine. Every 1.3-liter will be mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Those who seek the diesel option will get the turbocharged 2.0-liter Multijet II inline-four-cylinder diesel. Like the 1.3-liter, the diesel option is also found in the recently updated Compass. However, for Commander duty, the Multijet II gets a health boost of 30 Nm or about 22 ft.-lbs. of torque. This means that it will be badged as a T380. The 2.0-liter turbodiesel makes 170 horsepower and 280 ft.-lb. (380Nm) of torque. Each of the TD380 models will come with a 9-speed automatic and four-wheel-drive (4×4) as standard equipment.

Pre-orders are scheduled to begin on August 26th, while production will start at the end of the month. The new Commander should be arriving in Brazilian dealer showrooms starting in October.

The Brazilian Commander will feature full LED headlamps with LED daytime running lamps (DRLs), LED fog lamps, Hill Start Assist, dual-zone air conditioning, electronic parking brake, Keyless Enter N’ Go, automatic headlamps, and automatic wipers. We can’t forget that it will also share its instrumental panel (I/P) with the Compass, which means it will get the new digital gauge cluster and a new 10.1-inch Uconnect 5 touchscreen.

In terms of safety, the Commander will follow in the footsteps of the Compass. The Commander (H1) should feature Level 2 autonomous driving and is equipped with the latest generation Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS). This includes Traffic Sign Recognition, which reads and interprets the road signs; Intelligent Speed Assist, to automatically keep the car within the speed limit advertised; Drowsy Driver Alert, to alert the drivers when their attention falters or if they drop off for a moment; and Automatic Emergency Braking with pedestrian and cyclist recognition, which slows the vehicle down to a complete stop, to avoid (or mitigate) accidents that could occur.

The new Commander will be built alongside the Compass and Renegade at the Jeep® Automotive Pole in Pernambuco, Brazil. The Commander will also be built in India in 2022, under the name of the Jeep Meridian.

Jeep should do just 4 trims of the KM (Cherokee) replacement--Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, and Summit for the US market. Since the Compass is now over $26K starting and the two row Cherokee is likely to start at $36K, there isn't much room to play in. Jeep can easily target the Evoque/Discovery Sport crowd, as Dodge is likely to go after mainstream rivals.

That makes the most sense for the margin focus

Speaking of the Cherokee, there are rumors floating around that the next Cherokee will take on a mini Grand Wagoneer style. This would be much like when the first generation Compass took on the Grand Cherokee's style when FCA took over. That move certainly was successful, but now we have two Jeep models with the same style, the Compass and Cherokee, while the Grand Cherokee has evolved in appearance.

The thing is, the sources of such rumors haven't been reliable and have made some pretty wild claims in the past which didn't come to pass.

You know, when I was watching a review of the Grand Wagoneer today, the presenter (Alex on Autos) also briefly showed a "regular" Wagoneer. The headlights of it reminded me of the KL.

So I wouldn't really be upset by that rumor, especially if the boxy rear design was adopted as well.

Will platform will KM be based on?
What will Belvidere produce in calendar 2023?
What platform will the next vans be based on in 2025?

Hint - I have to make a correction to my prior plant/platform list. The only plant in the Americas that will produce STLA Medium is Toluca.

Quiz - if Toluca is the only STLA Medium plant, everything else built in the US/Canada must be based on two platforms - what are they?

;)
