More than two decades ago, Jeep ended the production of the iconic Comanche pickup truck. Now, the 2020 Jeep Comanche is making a huge comeback. Three years ago the manufacturer introduced seven concepts and Comanche Concept is just one of them. In a world full of crossovers, SUVs and pickup trucks, Jeep is stepping up its game. The 2020 Comanche will arrive with a similar configuration as in the 90s.
That includes a rear-wheel-drive system and a two-door configuration. Exterior design is a perfect mix of a rugged appearance and modern styling. Interior is still a mystery but it will be based on the company’s SUV models such as Renegade. We can expect a pleasant cabin with plenty of upscale features. Comanche could also borrow Renegade’s 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine.
2020 Jeep Comanche Offers Plenty of Optional Features
Can you imagine a pickup truck with the Renegade’s styling? Well, that will happen later next year. The 2020 Jeep Comanche will draw some cues from the original concept. However, most of the body is clearly based on a Jeep Renegade SUV. The front part comes with a recognizable design without fog lights. Tow hooks are available as standard and grille are large.
Hood sports matt black finishes and a large “Comanche” lettering. We can expect plenty of optional features such as body-colored bumpers. The scrapped roof design is present which should provide more space for the cargo bed. Just like on the Wrangler model, the rooftop is removable. Styling is closer to the military vehicles than the modern pickup trucks. 16-inch wheels are available as standard and longer wheelbase model will be in the offer too.
Jeep didn’t provide many interior details. The 2020 Jeep Comanche was introduced at the Easter Jeep Safari event. From the available materials, we can confirm lower bucket seats upfront. Dashboard and center console are almost the same as on the Renegade model. Renegade SUV delivers great comfort and a very modern interior.
Comanche will surely borrow some of the stuff from the inside. We can expect larger displays on higher trim levels. On top of that, leather upholstery will be optional on the base model. However, even the base model will surely deliver an upscale feeling and a quiet ride.
2020 Jeep Comanche Powertrain Specs
The upcoming 2020 Jeep Comanche will borrow Renegade’s powertrain. It is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine. This MultiJet2 type of engine is currently available only outside the United States. It can produce 170 HP and 260 lb-ft of torque. A 9-speed automatic gearbox is available and the four-wheel-drive system is optional.
Jeep says the Comanche will get a two-inch suspension lift and 32-inch all-season tires. This should additionally raise ground clearance. Comanche will probably introduce an optional and much stronger powertrain option. On the other hand, the base engine will deliver a quiet and comfortable ride.
Price and Release Date
We are still waiting for closer detail. That includes fuel economy figures, interior specs, and pricing details. New 2020 Jeep Comanche will be available for an affordable price.
Some reports are predicting a price that starts at $25,000. It is still unclear where this pickup will be offered. Comanche will go on sale in the first quarter of 2020.
