The Commander was introduced in 2006 when gas was cheap and SUVs were in demand. Essentially a stretched seven-seat derivative of the Grand Cherokee, the Commander probably didn't cost very much to develop, and it sold pretty well for the first couple of years. But when gas prices skyrocketed, interest in the Commander plummeted. Jeep sold just 8,115 Commanders in calendar year 2010, less than 10% of sales in 2006. That said, the Commander concept isn't completely dead. Jeep introduced a new Grand Cherokee for the 2011 model year, and a stretched seven-seat variant is on the way for 2013 -- but instead of being called the Commander, it will resurrect the Grand Wagoneer nameplate.
