    Jeep has launched seven Jeep concepts for Moab — one using a 1960s body on a 2005 Wrangler chassis, one with Hellcat power.

    OMG is it wrong that I love the Comanche?

    If we going to get a small truck instead of rebadging a Fiat... I love the little guy. Plus the Chinese market would way better respond and could be sold at a premium in EU.

    Hope both are hints to the type of bed design we will see for the Wrangler pickup.

    The Commanche is a surprise...at least for me...neat idea for a light duty little truck. I wouldn't mind something like that to haul tools, supplies, doggies, mother-in-law, etc. :)

    Three pickups (Comanche, Crew Chief 175, FC-150).. It's almost like Jeep is trying to tell people something ;)

    I've mixed feelings about how they built the FC-150... maybe the donor's running gear was beyond repair, but whenever I see something like this I always think "hey, why didn't you restore it..."

    Comanche is such an obvious vehicle: once you see it, you wonder why you didn't think of it yourself. Renegade has sold well enough that a variant might be on the cards... the only problem would be finding plant capacity to build it.

    Oh, and Comanche is also a diesel. The right choice for a pickup, but an odd choice for a country where the donor car isn't offered with diesel power.

    Regarding the Comanche--it doesn't seem possible that you would be able to go from the Renegade to the truck on a unibody without major rework to the body to handle the structural changes--unless Renegade was planned for a truck from the very beginning. Can they even take that thing on the trail without it ripping itself apart? I like the concept, but I doubt it would ever see production.

    They've put a HEllcat in a Wrangler, they are putting a Hellcat in a Grand Cherokee...



    I wonder how much a Hellcat crate engine is...
    ...I wonder if a Hellcat would fit into a Fiat 500?


    Mounted behind the driver, and RWD of course...

    Just sayin...

    Lol... the XJ and MJ are notorious for body cracking... not a great example.

    Interesting that both the Comanche and the Crew Chief have similar looking beds and both are 5'..... Just saying I'm 100% OK with that look and size for my Jeep pickup. Like the common side rail tie-downs as well. They look like what a Wrangler bed should be, but that's just me.

    Would be very cool if the styling elements of Shortcut were used on an A-segment Jeep. :)

    It is interesting to note (Shortcut) the width and, as stated in another thread, the grill design. Think we see more than we know. I read somewhere that the one dislike of the current JK Wrangler was the "Jeep" name on the grill. I have no problem with it being placed back where it belongs on side of the front fender as we see on Shortcut.

    Comanche can be done... one would have to look no further then the MJ... another to make it look like a separate bed but not... they have the tools Bob's old notes and the FEA group in India it just a structural but solvable problem

    Comanche looks awesome! I think it would be a huge seller worldwide if ever offered. Wonder how close the bed will be (design wise, not dimension wise) for the production JT?

    Every year when they bring out the concepts, I'm reminded of how much I want to put solid steel wheels on my JK.

    The Comanche caught me off guard, but I find it intriguing at the very least. I'm in love with both the Crew Chief and the Shortcut concepts.
