2016 Jeep Comanche Concept

One of the most talked about and controversial vehicles from this year’s Easter Jeep Safari was the 2016 Jeep Comanche Concept. A few weeks ago, we showed you the complete rundown of the seven concept vehicles Jeep hauled to the 50th annual Easter Jeep Safari. We got to check out the Comanche in person and even spent a little time behind the wheel. We’re not sure if we love it or want to kill it with fire just yet, but it definitely has us captivated. Here, Chief Jeep Designer Mark Allen explains how they built the unique diesel pickup and why it’s hitting a nerve with so many people.
