The average gas mileage of a Jeep Commander as of 2014 is approximately 14.5 miles per gallon, according to Fuelly. Although Jeep vehicles are notorious gas guzzlers, they are still known to be very durable and powerful machines.
The Jeep Commander was available in three different trim models, with the least powerful engine offering the best fuel economy. The 3.7 liter Powertrain V6 offered the best combined gas mileage based on the average user ratings. The average combined ratings for all Jeep Commander vehicles are as follows:

The Jeep Commander featured five- to seven-passenger seating. Its chassis followed a short and long arm suspension design with unibody construction. The drivetrain sported three different types of four-wheel-drive systems. Each system offered upgrades such as a limited-slip differential or skid plates. There were three available trims on the market. The base model featured the most fuel efficient 3.7 liter engine. The Limited and Overland models both sported 5.7 liter Hemi engines. In 2010 the Jeep commander ceased production and was replaced by the 2011 Dodge Durango.
