If there's a European Chrysler to mess with, you know Brabus's Startech geeks will show up with slide-rule in hand. This time, they've set upon the Jeep Commander CRD, creating an add-on performance processor, the SD6, which — along with a stainless-steel sport exhaust — boosts horsepower to 262 (from 218) and torque to 427 ft.-lbs (from 376). The chip opens a world of speed — ok, maybe a suburban hamlet of speed — cutting zero-to-60 time from 9.0 seconds to 8.5, but increasing top speed to 124 mph. Not great for speed freaks, but pretty impressive for a diesel-powered brick.
