The Jeep® Commander is the first Jeep vehicle with three rows of seats; now, more passengers — seven total — can visit more places to enjoy its go-anywhere, do-anything capability.
The 3.7-liter engine provides the 2007 Jeep Commander with a powerful standard single-overhead-cam (SOHC) engine that is efficient, durable and smooth. It produces 210 hp (157 kW) @ 5,200 rpm and 235 lb.-ft. (319 N•m) @ 4,000 rpm. A sophisticated Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) system tailors throttle response to pedal movement based on operating conditions, and maintains a consistent vehicle speed on rolling grades when cruise control is active. New on the 3.7-liter engine for 2007 is an exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve, which helps increase fuel economy.
For 2007, the Jeep Commander with the 4.7-liter V-8 engine is flex-fuel capable. This feature gives customers the ability to use up to an 85 percent concentration of ethanol (E-85) to fuel their vehicles. The seamless transition of one fuel to another is accomplished by an advanced calibration system that determines the concentration of ethanol in the gasoline and adjusts for greatest operational efficiency. Flex-fuel vehicles (FFVs) support renewable sources of fuel and reduce emissions. The engine produces 235 hp (175 kW) @ 4,500 rpm and 305 lb.-ft. (414 N•m) of torque @ 3,600.
The 5.7-liter HEMI with the Multi-Displacement System (MDS) gives Commander best-in-class performance. MDS imperceptibly deactivates half the cylinders of the 5.7-liter HEMI during cruising and light acceleration to increase fuel economy up to 20 percent, depending on driving conditions. A sophisticated ETC system tailors throttle response to pedal movement based on operating conditions, and maintains a more consistent vehicle speed on rolling grades when cruise control is active, compared with the former mechanical throttle control system. The HEMI produces 330 hp (246 kW) @ 5,000 rpm and 375 lb.-ft. (508 N•m) @ 4,000 rpm.
