Pickup trucks are a thing nowadays, along with modern crossovers and SUVs. Right now, Jeep offers the Gladiator mid-size pickup. That is about to change, as the 2023 Jeep Comanche is also on the way. The Comanche model will join the lineup and it will reportedly tackle the compact pickup segment. Right now, Ford Maverick is the most popular option and that will hardly change in the following years.
Still, this segment is far from crowded, so the Comanche model could become an instant hit. From what we know, the Jeep Renegade crossover will serve as an inspiration for this new pickup truck. Thanks to that, Comanche will borrow lots of things from the Renegade model, including design language, interior, and even mechanics.
Jeep Comanche Exterior Design
Because the original version of the car was based on the Cherokee, we would anticipate a similar design from the reported comeback. According to the most recent reports, the 2023 Jeep Comanche would be based on the Jeep Renegade. Although modest chassis adjustments are anticipated, the subcompact crossover would have essentially complete mechanics.
The little crossover would also be a source of design inspiration. The front end should have the same or a very similar appearance, we assume. The rest of the body would be designed like a regular pickup truck, which entails stretching the wheelbase to make room for a sizable cargo bed.
Regarding interior design, the Renegade model would also serve as a starting point. Although there is one thing to keep in mind, the compact crossover is going to receive another redesign, which could also bring interior modifications. Therefore, the 2023 Jeep Comanche could offer a new dashboard and much more. Moreover, this pickup would also provide a bigger display and new upholstery.
The Jeep Comanche will undoubtedly embrace the same upgrades as the Renegade crossover. In other words, we would observe fewer technological features and conveniences, as well as slightly worse material quality, which would guarantee competitive pricing.
The same thing will happen under the hood. This means the 2023 Jeep Comanche will use Renegade’s 1.3-liter turbo-four gas engine. It will be a standard powertrain option and it will produce around 170 horsepower. On top of that, Jeep will deliver a smooth 9-speed automatic transmission. Like Renegade, Comanche will come with a standard front-wheel-drive setup, while the all-wheel-drive system will be optional.
Many reports are written about the optional plug-in hybrid variant. The Comanche PHEV truck will develop 240 horsepower and it will provide impressive fuel economy. In some parts of the world, Comanche could offer a smaller 1.6-liter turbodiesel displacement, which is a rumor at the moment and nothing more.
2023 Jeep Comanche Price and Release Date
The forthcoming 2023 Jeep Comanche will be an affordable pickup truck. The price will definitely start below $25,000. However, the exact price is not available yet. This model will hit the markets in the first half of 2023, so we should know more details in the coming weeks.
