Pictures have emerged of the recently announced 2017 Jeep pickup truck, causing the internet to freak out in anticipation all over again.

Based on the compact Jeep Renegade, the Comanche has 6 extra inches of wheelbase to accommodate a 5-foot bed, giving the concept the look of military and civilian Jeeps from the past.

Powered by a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder turbo-diesel and nine-speed automatic transmission, the Comanche also uses Jeep’s exclusive Active Drive Lock within the transmission, which acts like a traditional low-range ratio when the terrain turns ugly.

The concept rides on 16-inch painted wheels and 32-inch BF-Goodrich All-Terrain tires, and also includes a locking rear differential.

As cool as the Jeep Commander pickup looks, everyone is wondering why the exceptionally badass Crew Chief 715 isn’t the concept going to production first.

Based on a current-generation Wrangler Unlimited frame and chassis, and showing hints of the burly stance of the legendary Kaiser M715, the Crew Chief 715 is really the Jeep everyone has been waiting for.
