276 horsepower V6. Compare it to a similar options Ford Explorer, Toyota 4Runner, Nissan Pathfinder, or Jeep Commander. All are about the same size, all are body on frame.16 mpg city and that's the V6 version...and almost $30K? Yeah, that'll sell...not.
How does it compare to Hyundai's Veracruz?Since test driving isn't my style when it comes to buying a new car, I did sit in the Borrego. The one car that the local dealer had in showroom, which was the only Borrego they had, with the sticker price of $30K and some change, Actually, I kinda liked it. I prefer it over the Hyundai's Genesis to tell you the truth, though they are not a same category, but since those are two newest offerings from Hyundai/Kia. I posted my impressions on my site, but I won't post it here, since most people here seems to hate the car. If you want to read it and want the url, simply PM me.
...Commander is not BOF276 horsepower V6. Compare it to a similar options Ford Explorer, Toyota 4Runner, Nissan Pathfinder, or Jeep Commander. All are about the same size, all are body on frame.
The Borrego is the cheapest except for the base Commander with 210 horsepower, and the Borrego has the most powerful V6.
16 city isn't bad for the class, either. It would have been rated 18/23 under the 2007 and earlier EPA rules, which isn't bad for something 4WD and that big.
The Commander is a body-on-frame vehicle. It is based on the WK platform that the Grand Cherokee rides on, only stretched to accommodate the extra two passengers it can seat; five versus a respective seven....Commander is not BOF
Also IMO, the Veracruz is ugly...this looks much nicer, but why would someone buy one over a 4-runner or pathfinder??
