A Jeep Renegade-Based Mini Gladiator Is Anything But Far Fetched These Days

With automakers across the spectrum abandoning traditional sedans and hatchbacks en masse in favor of crossovers, SUVs and trucks, anything is possible – even a pickup version of the Jeep Renegade.

That said, this digital exercise from KleberSilva for a Jeep Gladiator-inspired Renegade model may not be as much of a stretch as you’d initially think, especially for markets in South America.

In this instance, the photoshop artist extended the rear end of the subcompact crossover, retaining the four doors and giving it an open bed, though we think it could have benefited from some additional styling features like boxed fenders for a more utilarian look.

What’s that you say about a two-door version? Well, since you mention it, someone actually created a two-door Renegade pickup truck model, which was listed for sale on eBay, just last year.

Unofficially baptized the Comanche, after the 2-door compact model based on the Cherokee and assembled until 1992, it was a two-seater with an open bed behind the B-pillars, and other enhancements.

The custom creation attracted several bidders, who eventually raised the price to $32,000. Mind you, that’s some $4,000 more than the new Jeep Wrangler, and about the same a 2019 Grand Cherokee.

Despite the rather steep price for what is still a Jeep Renegade, which retails from $18,750 for the base model and nearly $8,400 more for the Trailhawk, the vehicle failed to meet the reserve.
