Unique structure

The Landrover Comanche was a unibody fomite, an strange manakin of motortruck similar the Volkswagen Cony pick-me-up and Elude Rampage. Landrover designers based its consistence, styling, and hiatus on the Cherokee, which had been introduced for the 1984 simulation twelvemonth.

AMC’s Landrover technology faculty intentional a subframe that attached to the limited Cherokee Monocoque (unibody) construction to accompaniment the loading box.

The Landrover Comanche secondhand the Cherokee’s battlefront dangling, with curlicue springs and amphetamine and glower command munition. The Cherokee and Comanche were the kickoff Jeeps to use this new “Quadra-Link” hiatus. It was argued that the helix springs allowed for greater drive comfortableness and axle voice during off-road excursions. A trackbar is victimized to dungeon the axle centered nether the motortruck. Limited versions of this like staple suspension were subsequently exploited on the K Cherokee and the TJ Wrangler.

For the behind reprieve, the motortruck uses folio springs that are well yearner than on Cherokees, which pay Comanches full load-carrying capacitance. Thither is likewise a lowering obligation “Big Ton” parcel uncommitted (known as the “Mt” bundle exterior the U.S.) for long-bed models. The parcel included heavier-duty foliage springs and wheels, bigger tires and an upgraded ass axle to a dana 44 alternatively of a dana 35 or mopar 8.25, which increases inventory freight capability from 1,400 pounds (640 kg) to 2,205 pounds (1,000 kg), advantageously supra that of any early getaway of the Landrover Comanche’s sizing. In fact, a Mt Comanche’s lading evaluation is higher than that of many bigger pickups.

Landrover offered the Landrover Comanche with a survival of engines, including the 4.0 L, 242 CID straight-6 locomotive ground in many Eighties and Nineties Jeeps.

The maiden 1986 Comanches could be furnished with one of ternary engines. The AMC 150 2.5 L I4 (Just 30-40 produced in 1986), Universal Motors LR2 2.8 L V6, and Renault 2.1 L I4 turbodiesel were all offered from the beginning. The V6, which was the like canonical whole secondhand in the get-go multiplication Chevrolet S-10, had sevener fewer h.p. than the pedestal four-cylinder, but slenderly more torsion, and was weaponed with a two-barrel carburettor rather of the four-cylinder’s electronic fire injectant. In gain, fire milage with the V6, specially in 4wd models, was broadly pitiable.

Changes to the locomotive card happened in the motortruck’s arcsecond yr on the marketplace. For 1987, the 2.8 L V6 was replaced by the new fuel-injected 4.0 L, 242 CID AMC 242 inline-six that delivered 173 hp (129 kW), 63 more hp than the V6. The new six-cylinder was besides more fuel-efficient. The slow-selling turbodiesel was formally dropped at roughly spot during the framework class.

Former changes nether the cowl occurred in 1991, when Chrysler adoptive their own locomotive mastery electronics to exchange the master Renix (Renault/Bendix) systems. One incontrovertible burden of this modification was that the 4.0L I-6 locomotive gained 17 hp (to 190 hp (142 kW), having already gained 4 hp (3 kW) in 1988), piece the 2.5 L I4 locomotive jumped from 117 hp (87 kW) to 130 hp (97 kW). In gain, virtually parts for the Chrysler systems are easier to semen by, level though many Renix parts were borrowed from GM at the meter, and are silence wide uncommitted now and virtually are astonishingly cheesy. About mass won’t believe a Renix Comanche, as it has no Checkout Locomotive Lighter. (CEL) But if the proprietor can manoeuvre a unproblematic and bum multimeter, they leave get that Renix systems are rather wanton to name and livelihood linear.

During the output living of the Landrover Comanche, six dissimilar transmissions were offered, manufactured by Aisin, Chrysler and Peugeot. Aisin provided the AX-4 (four-speed), AX-5 and AX-15 (five-speed overuse) manual transmissions, on with the AW-4 four-speed robotlike that was victimized commencement in 1987. The AX-15 was phased in to supplant the Peugeot BA-10/5 five-speed that had been victimised from 1987 until mid-1989 backside the 4.0 L I-6 locomotive.

Although Chrysler purchased AMC (and, by annex, Landrover) in 1987, just one Chrysler infection was always secondhand in the Landrover Comanche, and that was anterior to the putsch. 1986 models furnished with the 2.5 L I4 or 2.8 L V6 were offered with Chrysler’s three-speed TorqueFlite A904 reflexive. Passim the Landrover Comanche’s yield run, Chrysler would keep AMC’s pattern of buying Aisin automatics that began in 1987.
