How many Jeep Comanches were made?

My dad used to own a Jeep Comanche pickup truck, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen another on the road before—how many Jeep Comanches were made?

Exact production numbers are often hard to come by, but it’s generally agreed upon that 190,446 Jeep Comanches were built during the model’s eight year production run. For a complete breakdown of production numbers by year, consult the table below:

Introduced in 1985, the Jeep Comanche—which was heavily based on the Jeep Cherokee XJ, a model introduced the year prior—was one of the first trucks Jeep ever produced. Classified as a compact pickup truck, the Jeep Comanche was offered with both a 6-foot and 7-foot removable cargo bed.
Throughout its production run, the Jeep Comanche offered four different engine sizes:
  • 2.5L straight-four-cylinder
  • 2.8L V6
  • 2.1L TurboDiesel straight-four-cylinder
  • 4.0L straight-six-cylinder
Depending on the engine, customers could choose a 4-speed manual, 5-speed manual, 3-speed automatic, or 4-speed automatic transmission.
After years of low sales, Chrysler—Jeep’s parent company—decided to discontinue the model in 1992 and have Jeep focus primarily on producing SUVs (Chrysler would then foster future truck-making duties onto Dodge, which they also owned). Jeep would not offer a pickup truck again until the Jeep Gladiator was released in 2019.
