The report from the media publication also suggests that Commander might not be the name of the upcoming SUV in the Indian market. The name ‘Commnader' was previously used and registered in the Indian market by Mahindra. As a result, Jeep could use a different name for the upcoming three-row SUV just for the Indian market, based on the sour history between both brands.
