Although it occupies the entry-level slot in the Commander lineup, the Jeep Commander Sport comes well-equipped for 2008. Standard features include power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, side curtain airbags, powered and heated fold-away mirrors, and a six-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system with an MP3 input jack and Sirius satellite radio.

Standard rack-and-pinion steering improves the Commander's handling, while antilock brakes, a tire pressure monitoring system, an Electronic Stability Program, Brake Assist, and the ParkSense rear park-assist system, all standard, help ensure the safety of passengers.

The 2008 Commander Sport comes equipped with a 210-horsepower, 3.7-liter V6 engine, which provides relatively good fuel economy, but results in sluggish acceleration due to the Commander's weight, according to some drivers. The engine links to a five-speed automatic transmission, designed for smooth shifting and fuel efficiency.

The Commander Sport does not come with a third-row seat for seven-passenger seating, so large families looking for room to spread out might want to opt for a different trim. However, the Commander Sport's rear seats fold flat to expand cargo space.

Drivers who require an SUV with extra traction as well as a spacious interior and an extensive list of standard features can opt for the 2008 Jeep Commander Sport 4WD. It comes equipped with the Quadra-Trac I full-time four-wheel-drive system and a new four-wheel Brake Traction Control system. Standard features like antilock brakes, an Electronic Stability Program, and Brake Assist, as well as rack-and-pinion steering, help improve the Commander Sport's stability, traction, and handling.

A 210-horsepower, 3.7-liter V6 engine powers the Commander Sport 4WD, although some drivers and reviewers note that acceleration suffers with the V6, due in part to the Commander's weight. The engine links to a five-speed automatic transmission, designed for smooth shifting and fuel efficiency.

The Commander Sport 4WD comes with all the expected standard features, like remote keyless entry, power windows and door locks, and a six-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system with an MP3 input jack. But it's also equipped with a number of not-so-expected standard features, including Sirius satellite radio, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, side curtain airbags, powered and heated fold-away mirrors, and an enhanced accident-response system.

The Commander Sport 4WD does not come with a third-row seat for seven-passenger seating. However, the second-row seats fold flat to provide additional cargo space.

Adds to Sport:
Enhanced Powertrain: 4X4
No additional major features.

The 2008 Jeep Commander Limited receives a larger engine, a higher-performance five-speed automatic transmission, an upgraded audio system, and an expanded list of standard features compared to the entry-level Sport trim. The Limited also comes with a higher axle gear ratio, which translates to poorer fuel economy, but improves the Limited's acceleration, power when climbing grades, and towing capacity.

Power comes in the form of a 4.7-liter V8 engine that produces 305 horsepower, an improvement of 95 horsepower over the entry-level Commander Sport. Naturally, fuel economy suffers when compared to the Sport's V6 engine, but Jeep notes that the new V8 is 5 percent more fuel efficient than the previous year's engine. The engine links to a Multi-Speed automatic overdrive transmission, which comes with a fifth overdrive gear that helps reduce noise and fuel consumption, as well as an alternate second gear for smooth downshifting at high speeds.

Standard features for the Commander Limited include the MyGIG Multimedia Infotainment System, a new feature for 2008. The 276-watt premium sound system comes with six Bose Acoustics speakers, a touchscreen, and a 20-gigabyte hard drive for storing music and photos. Leather-trimmed seats that are heated in the front, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, power-adjustable front seats with memory, power-adjustable pedals with memory, a power sunroof with second-row skylights, and dual-zone air conditioning are also included with the Limited package.

The Commander Limited can accommodate seven passengers, thanks to a third-row seat. In addition, the second-row seats fold flat to provide additional cargo space. Safety features include a ParkView rear backup camera and side-curtain airbags, while antilock brakes, an Electronic Stability Program, and Brake Assist, as well as rack-and-pinion steering, help improve the Commander Limited's stability, traction, and handling.

The mid-level 2008 Jeep Commander Limited 4WD comes equipped with a Quadra-Trac II active full-time four-wheel-drive system, which incorporates a new four-wheel Brake Traction Control System. When slippage on a road surface is detected, the system automatically transfers torque to individual wheels to maintain traction.

A 305-horsepower, 4.7-liter V8 engine powers the Commander Limited 4WD. The engine links to a Multi-Speed automatic overdrive transmission, which has a fifth overdrive gear that reduces noise and fuel consumption, and an alternate second gear for smooth downshifting at high speeds.

Jeep packed all of its top-of-the-line gear into the 2008 Commander Overland SUV, starting with a 330-horsepower, 5.7-liter HEMI V8 multi-displacement engine. To help conserve fuel at cruising speeds or under light acceleration, the engine's multi-displacement system disengages four of the HEMI's eight cylinders, which results in a 20 percent improvement in fuel economy, according to Jeep. But when the Overland requires maximum power, all eight cylinders engage, working along with a higher axle gear ratio to improve the Overland's acceleration, power when climbing grades, and towing capacity.

The Overland comes equipped with a Trailer Tow package as standard equipment, as well as 18-inch all-terrain tires with aluminum chrome-clad wheels, a Class IV trailer hitch, and a power rear liftgate. The Overland receives the luxury treatment inside as well, with such standard features as leather-trimmed seats that are heated in the front, two-tone seat accents, a wood and leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power sunroof with second-row skylights, and powered and heated fold-away auto-dimming mirrors with a memory function.

The Overland also comes with the MyGIG Multimedia Infotainment System, a new feature for 2008. The 276-watt premium sound system includes a GPS navigation system with a touchscreen display monitor, six Bose Acoustics speakers, and a 20-gigabyte hard drive for storing music and photos. The UConnect Bluetooth hands-free communication system also comes standard.

The Commander Overland can accommodate seven passengers, thanks to a third-row seat. In addition, the second-row seats fold flat to provide additional cargo space. Safety features include a ParkView rear backup camera and side-curtain airbags, while antilock brakes, an Electronic Stability Program, and Brake Assist, as well as rack-and-pinion steering, help improve the Commander Overland's stability, traction, and handling.

Drivers and reviewers note that, while the Commander Overland can haul up to seven passengers, the third-row seat can be cramped for adults. The Overland's safety features receive high marks, as does the Overland's towing capacity and off-road capabilities. However, some note that while the Overland's ride is generally smooth and handling is responsive, the big SUV still has an overall trucklike feel.

To make its top-of-the-line luxury-oriented 2008 Commander Overland even better, Jeep added a Quadra-Trac II active full-time four-wheel-drive system to the vehicle's list of standard equipment. The system, which includes a new four-wheel Brake Traction Control System, improves the Overland's traction and stability on slippery roads by automatically transferring torque to the individual wheels with the most grip on the road.
