The main aim in the launch of the car was to provide a tough competition to the market leaders ford Bronco and Toyota Land Cruiser. The three versions in which it was available was wagon, convertible and pick up truck. The Company was taken over by American Motors Work. This car was quite successful commercially. The SUV was the pride of America and was the proof that the United States was indeed a rich and a very technologically superior nation. The car displayed the spirit of the nation, at that point of time.
The car was so popular throughout the US that many people actually started commando jeep clubs, throughout the United States. The Jeep, which originally, was meant solely for the United States Army was a roaring hit. The jeep jeepster commando was the car for businessmen who needed to transport goods from one place to other. It was the perfect vehicle to bear heavy load. The earliest models which came out in 1966 came with a four wheel drive, 75 Horsepower. It had 155 N m of torque. People who had more cash to spend often bought the deluxe model of this jeep. There were plenty of cool features available in the deluxe versions and some of the features included a full interior trim as well as sliding rear windows. Moreover, two-tone exterior was also available.
The name Jeep Commando was specifically used after 1971 when the word ‘jeepster’ was removed from the name of the car. The improve jeep came with the choice of 3 engines: 304 cu, 258 cu and 232 cu. Initially, front grill of the jeep jeepster commando looked like that of a CJ. The front of this jeep was changed by AMC to remodel it as a passenger car. Unfortunately, all good things have to come to an end as the adage goes. The production of the jeep was stopped by AMC in 1973.
