The New York Times recently reviewed the 2006 Jeep Commander - the title of the review is, "2006 Jeep Commander: A Looming Case of Hummer Envy". The review isn't all the positive - here's a quote:

The Commander performs such chores with an undeniable presence, like it or not, and one with overtones of the Hummer. There is a blunt seven-slot grille, a bunkerlike greenhouse and squarish windows. While the Commander doesn't compete directly with any of the three existing Hummers, it could be seen as a retort to a brand that has stolen some of the rough-and-ready image that Jeep used to claim exclusively. (The chicken-or-egg debate doesn't end there, given that several of Hummer's styling cues seem to have been borrowed from Jeep in the first place.)

In one sentence they comment about its large size, then they comment about how little room there is. Did they not read their own review to realize they contradicted themselves.

Also, if they would do their journalistic duty (and research!), they would realize that Hummers design cues DO come from the Jeep because Hummer and Jeep were once part of the same family.

WOW, you’re right – a conflicted review indeed! He is all over the place on this one. Come on Dan; is it huge and bulky or compact - you call it both! And then there’s this line: “This is a part of Jeep's image that it will surrender only when it must.” What? Why must Jeep surrender its image?

It is clear Dan Carney doesn’t understand Jeep – Hey Danny! It’s a Jeep thing – you wouldn’t understand…
