Our friends from the D over at How Bourgeois were out tooling about when they happened upon something we've not yet seen stateside, but have heard rumors of for almost a year now — a CRD Jeep Commander. So what do we think — is this manny-plated SUV a harbinger of the German-American hybrid shipping over a 3.0-liter CRD V6? The picture they've snapped seems to indicate that's the case. And how much longer will we be waiting until we see the Commander's Durango-platformed brethren fitted with a 3.0-liter CRD? Take a look at the spotting in full size via the link below.
