The rumors about the comeback of the 2022 Jeep Comanche are spreading like a storm over the web. It seems that the forgettable model will be revived next year. Interestingly, some renderings are available, and we didn’t notice any similarities with the previous model.
The new model looks compact and more stylish, featuring a remarkably comfortable cabin filled with techs. On the other hand, many suggesting that the next Jeep Comanche will probably use the same engines as the Jeep Renegade.
2022 Jeep Comanche Exterior
The renderings of the upcoming 2022 Jeep Comanche are available, and we are impressed by them. First of all, the Comanche is proportionally the same as the Renegade, and it features identical front and rear fascia.
Thanks to the recognized seven-slot grille that is also present on some of Jeep`s models like the Wrangler, the front end dominates. Besides the grille, the new pickup also comes with round headlights dating from World War II. Overall, the body is compact, and the main difference between mentioned models is that the Comanche comes with a bed.
On the inside, we would not be surprised to see many cues taken from the Renegade model. Therefore, we expect the new pickup to features the same modern cabin and the same trim levels. The current Renegade is offered in Sport, Latitude, Trailhawk, and Limited trims. The entry-level Sport includes power windows, dual-zone automatic climate control, an upgraded infotainment system with an 8.4-inch touchscreen, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration.
Also, features such as forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and lane-keeping assistance come standard. That’s more equipment than you can imagine, especially o the upper trims. For example, you can get a 9-speaker Kenwood premium audio system, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, and parallel/perpendicular parking assistance available on the Latitude and Limited trims.
2022 Jeep Comanche Powertrain Specs
The upcoming 2022 Jeep Comanche will probably borrow an engine from the compact Renegade model. That means we should expect a 2.4-liter inline-4 producing 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. This engine uses a front-wheel-drive (2WD) as standard, while a 4-wheel drive (4WD) is optional. A 9-speed automatic gearbox is available, and we can expect very smooth shifting.
Besides this engine, the manufacturer also offers a potent 1.3-liter turbocharged inline-4 that delivers 177 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque. As the first engine, this one also uses the same drive and transmission. Jeep says that this engine comes with a stop/restart system that cuts power at idle. Thanks to that, fuel consumption is much better.
Price and Release Date
The comeback of the new 2022 Jeep Comanche from many rumors could happen next year. Many gossips are points to the first quarter. However, many details are still missing, and we are waiting for the official statement.
By the way, the rendering images of the Jeep Comanche are available, and we like every detail. As for the price, we expect the new model to be very affordable. Some reports predict a price that starts at $25,000 for the base model and around $35,000 for the upper trim.
