Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 18 - 26 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Insurance is affordable for a car this size with the diesels in groups 13 or 14 and the V8 petrol in group 16. Only the diesel offers acceptable running costs, but even then emissions and economy aren’t great compared to similar-sized 4x4s. Depreciation is a little steeper than a Land Rover Discovery, but then the initial list price is cheaper.

The Commander scores disappointingly on the eco front. Even the CRD engine only manages 26mpg and emits 284g/km of CO2 making it expensive to tax.

This Jeep shares many parts with the five-seat Grand Cherokee, while the diesel engine is sourced from Mercedes-Benz. There have been no serious complaints about either of these, so there is no reason to doubt the Commander’s mechanical integrity.
