The Jeep® Commander (H1) is celebrating one year on the market in Brazil. Since then more than 16,000 units have been sold in the country. The Commander stands out for raising the level of sophistication of the brand’s “Made-In-Brazil” lineup and for being the first Jeep designed and developed in Brazil.
Introduced on Thursday, August 26th, 2021, the Commander made its world debut and pre-orders opened immediately after. It only took 6 hours for Jeep to sell 2,800 units of the all-new three-row D-segment SUV. At the time, those numbers surpassed the brand’s expectations. The launch of the Commander definitely took the D-SUV segment to another level in the LATAM region.
As a result, demand for the model continued to rise month after month, and the Commander has already accumulated more than 16,000 registrations in Brazil since its launch, of which about 3,700 in 2021 (September to December), and in 2022, it continues to lead the category with a share of more than 32.7% among D-SUVs, with more than 12,400 units sold in the year.
The arrival of the Commander, which was developed and produced in Brazil, boosted the D-SUV segment. If we consider the sales volumes of this segment in the first seven months of 2022 versus the same period of 2021, the segment had a sales volume increase of around 22%.
The success of the Commander in the Brazilian market was also reflected in the specialized critics because over these 12 months the Commander has already won important awards. Among them, was the oldest and most traditional award from the Brazilian automotive press, the “Premium Car of the Year” from Autoesporte magazine, in December 2021.
Offered in Limited and Overland models, with a choice of either turbocharged gasoline with front-wheel drive (4×2) traction or turbodiesel with four-wheel drive (4×4) traction, the Commander has seven full-size seats distributed in three rows, with plenty of space and comfort. It also has its own personality in its features and premium finish, with leather and suede seats designed to offer the ultimate refinement.
The model is also equipped with a lot of technology: premium Harman Kardon sound system, electric front seats, Adventure Intelligence Plus connected platform with Alexa in-Vehicle, and autonomous driving systems such as emergency braking with pedestrian, cyclist, or motorcyclist recognition, driver fatigue, speed plate recognition, and park assist.
