#42 – Jeep Commander
Produced between 2005 and 2010, the Jeep Commander was designed as the counterpart to the Jeep Grand Cherokee and shared the Cherokee’s construction, suspension and rear axle design. With minor differences in the windshield and the squared off sides, the Commander featured a long list of upgrades including automatic headlights, remote keyless entry, power heated mirrors, back up sensors, and electronic stability control. However, the Commander failed to make a huge impression in the Jeep lineup and was pulled from production in 2010.
Despite being a capable off-road vehicle with luxurious features, the Commander wasn’t well-received by consumers with many complaining about the SUV’s boxy front end and the high sticker price of $33,575. As a result, the Commander was discontinued and now has a high depreciation rate with 2010 models going for around $14,000 and 2009 models dropping even lower with price tags at $8,000. For someone looking for a great SUV to take off-roading, the Commander is definitely a steal!
