Since its launch in August 2021, the Jeep® Commander (H1) has quickly established itself as a leading SUV in Brazil. As the largest and most sophisticated Jeep model produced in the country, the Commander has become a reference in the D-SUV category, maintaining a significant market share and sales success. With its spacious interior, advanced features, and off-road capabilities, the Commander offers a blend of comfort, sophistication, and performance.
Sales Success and Market Leadership:
The Jeep Commander has achieved remarkable success in the Brazilian market. Within the first five months of its launch, over 35,000 units of the Commander were sold in the country. It currently holds a 32% market share in its segment, making it the leader in the D-SUV category. Moreover, the Commander has also been exported to various Latin American countries, further expanding its reach.
Spacious and Comfortable Interior:
One of the key highlights of the Jeep Commander is its generous interior space. With three rows of seats and a total of seven seats, it offers ample room for passengers. The Commander boasts one of the largest trunks in its category, providing 1,760 liters of storage capacity when all seats are lowered. Even with five occupants, it offers 661 liters of storage space, and with all seven seats raised, it still provides 233 liters, the largest volume in its segment. The second and third rows of seats are reclining, ensuring a comfortable experience for all occupants. The Commander also features excellent accessibility to its spacious interior, with an 80° door opening angle, surpassing its competitors.
Jeep Commander Longitude: The New Addition:
To enhance its already successful lineup, Jeep has introduced a new version of the Commander called “Longitude.” This version offers the Turbo flex 4×2 engine, along with the refinement and attention to detail that are synonymous with the Commander brand.
Features and Technology:
The Jeep Commander Longitude comes equipped with a range of advanced features and technology.

The vehicle is equipped with thermal windshield and side windows, automatic folding mirrors, Keyless Enter ‘N Go, and Dual Zone air conditioning with a dedicated channel for rear seats. Safety features include blind spot detection, park assist, and six airbags as standard.
Despite being a 4×2 model, the Longitude version of the Jeep Commander maintains the off-road capabilities that are characteristic of the Jeep brand. It features Traction Control+, a traction control system that enhances performance in low-grip conditions.
Powerful T270 Engine:
The Jeep Commander Longitude is powered by the T270 engine, which offers exceptional performance. This flex engine, produced in Brazil, delivers 185 horsepower and 270 Nm (199 lb.-ft.) of torque, making it the most powerful flex engine in the country. Paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission, the T270 engine ensures a smooth and sporty driving experience. The Longitude version also includes a Sport driving mode, which enhances acceleration and steering response.
