It seems there is a lot of news this week about the upcoming Jeep® seven-seat D-SUV, which is based on the popular Jeep Compass. Wearing the Commander nameplate (except in India where it will be called the Meridian), the newest three-row Jeep SUV will play a key role throughout most of the world’s competitive SUV markets. While we haven’t seen the finished product just yet, Jeep Brazil has released it’s next teaser video for the new Commander.
The 40-second long video highlights the new Commander’s interior. The video shows the Commander’s suede and quilted leather seats, which Jeep says “were designed to offer the ultimate in refinement and comfort”. We also get a glimpse at the instrument panel, which looks to be directly taken from the new 2022 Jeep Compass. There is an all-digital gauge cluster with the animation featuring the “Commander” name on it.
On the center console armrest between the driver and front passenger, the text “1941 Jeep” is inscribed. Bronze accents appear to highlight the center console as well, showing that even for its more fundamental models, the Jeep brand is willing to pay attention to the fine details and make vehicles like the new Commander stand out against the competition.
We also get our first good look at the new third-row configuration. The new Commander is expected to feature seating up to seven passengers when equipped with a second-row bench seat.
The new 2022 Jeep Commander is expected to launch in the second half of 2021. The new Commander (H1) and its Meridian (H6) counterpart are expected to take over a more luxurious role in areas where the bigger Grand Cherokee and Wagoneer will not be able to compete due to their much more expensive price and size.
The Jeep Commander will be the fourth product to be manufactured at the Jeep Automotive Pole in Goiana, Brazil. Commander has been developed since it’s inception in Brazil, with it’s Meridian sibling to be manufactured in India sometime in 2022. The Brazilian plant will export the Commander throughout the Latin American region.
