That's one company (at least it was) so why didn't they put the S-Class brakes in the Commander?
you're comparing a sport utility to what is essentially a luxury super car with multi-piston calipers all around along with drilled rotors. my father's old S500 (w220) had very impressive handling, acceleration and stopping capabilities. remember, these are german engineered cars for german roads...jeeps are made to navigate the walmart parking lot.
