Just when analysts were anouncing to the world the (unconfirmed) demise of the Jeep Commander, I stumbled upon this lively thread in JeepForum.com called: If the Jeep brand were in your hands, what would you do? It makes for some interesting reading, as it shows that sometimes the customers have more marketing sense than the highly paid executives running DaimlerChrysler. While they talk about all Jeep models and concepts, they give some valid suggestions for the Commander, among them:
Make it taller and with bigger tires
Offer a 3.0L CRD V6 Diesel option
Make a Comanche-like pick up truck based on the Commander
Make it bigger: move it to the Durango platform but still make it look like a Jeep
There were also some posts calling for the Commander's deletion. What would you do?
