2021 Chrysler Commander Looks Very Similar to Its China Sibling

Chrysler is finally going to release some new models shortly. From multiple reports, the new 2021 Chrysler Commander will arrive later this year. As you may know, Chrysler’s latest SUV is very similar to the model that is made in China-only Jeep Commander. However, Chrysler Commander will make its way to the U.S soil. Basically, this automaker has plans to deliver more brand-new models in the upcoming years. Commander is the first SUV to arrive.

As we can see from the latest photos, the upcoming SUV will share a lot of components with Jeep Commander. Generally, this will include almost identical designs, the same cues inside and the same four-cylinder engine.

2021 Jeep Commander First Look

The exterior design of the newest 2021 Chrysler Commander will look very similar to its China sibling. Both models will have a lot of things in common. First thing first, these two models will ride on a similar platform and both ones will use the same 110-inch wheelbase. The latest renderings are available and in terms of design, we really like the Jeep Commander how it looks.

Chrysler’s design language is easy-to-recognizing and the Commander is wearing it. At first glance, front of this SUV comes with a famous seven-slot grille and it host LED headlights that are seen on the recently reviewed Jeep Wagoner. However, some sources suggest that the upcoming Chrysler Commander might completely change its overall shape on the final version. Besides, this model will be definitively sleeker and less boxy than the Chines crossover.

How 2021 Chrysler Commander Will Look Like Inside?

The latest photo hint that the new Chrysler-badged three-row Commander model will host the same cabin as the China-only model. However, as you may know, the Jeep has its own politics and it uses an almost identical design language on all models.

The interior design is modern and across the whole cabin, one can find more techs than on the rivals. As we mentioned, this model will come with three rows of seats and we assume that it can host seven passengers comfortably. The new Commander is 192 inches long, so expect ample legroom. This size is somewhere between mid-size and compact segments, so the cabin will be a little bit tighter than the most mid-size three-row SUVs in the same class. VW Tiguan is the best for comparison because it features a similar size and belongs to the same sub-segment.
