My suspicion is that a base model sport will start in the high 30's. But as soon as you start adding even a few options it will get into the 40's pretty quick. I would expect a Rubicon to start in the high 40's but get into the 50's with only one or two options.

They lure you in with a "starting in the 30's/40's/whatever" but when you go to buy the one equipped the way you want, it's several thousands more.

Don't forget the "Destination Charge" which in most cases they don't even mention in their press releases. Then add the infamous "Dealer Fee" and that starting price now looks like science fiction.

Of course, and it's always "plus tax, title, and license"...

Motor Trend Pricing $44K

Just saw it posted on the jeepgladiatorforum.com that the pricing (per Motor Trend mag) will start at an estimated $44K. If true, it would seem to follow the $2500+JLU equivalent pricing model (I.E JLU Rubicon $41445/JT Rubicon $44000).

Yeah, like a Tesla. Someday you'll see one of the $35k ones... Sadly, folks, supply and demand are things. Once, back in the 80s, there was this hot new car called the NSX. I saw one out front of a dealer and pulled in to drool. The salesman who approached knew I wasn't a customer, but came trotting out as an excuse to drool with me and chat about it.

The window sticker on that NSX was simplicity itself:
MSRP............60,000
Dealer Markup...$40,000
...............$100,000

They only had one, and if it was going to leave, they were going to make some serious coin off of it. And if someone wanted one right after it came out, well, there you go. The first Gladiator you see with real plates on it will have paid a lot.

They listed pricing. They have some cheap ones at 35k but a loaded Rubi can get to 62k. I thought it was gonna go higher than that to be honest. I guess it will once they have a diesel option which will probably be an add on of 6-8k and then it's a 70k loaded truck. 🤔

personally I think the prices are fair. Lower than I expected by a fair amount. These will sell no doubt about it.

Still $40k just for a Sport S with auto trans, add +$7k for a Rubicon. Means all the Rubicons you see will be $50k+ like JLU. But only +$2k upcharge from JL, Could’ve been worse

The $995 max tow package is actually a downright bargain

TFL posted a video saying there will be a special launch edition Gladiator. A Fully loaded Rubicon with special features for $60800.00 only 4000 will be made.
Around here they will put a $5000 market adjustment on everyone.

You mean it isn't starting at $60K? You can actually get a cheap one? Now the usual suspects will have to find something else to bitch about.

If I didn’t have two Jeep already I would place my order as soon as gator became available

Indeed. If Jeep walked up and handed the whiners here a $20 bill they would complain that it wasnít two $10s.

These prices are reasonable and I suspect they will sell quite well. Iíd much prefer a JT Rubicon over a JL Rubicon for a premium of $2500 or thereabouts.

From The Detriot Free Press.
Comfortable, capable and engineered to combine the best characteristics of a Jeep and a midsize pickup, the Gladiator midsize pickup checked every box in a day’s drive from Sacramento into the rugged hills where the legend of the California gold rush was born.
It negotiated deep, gluey mud that would devour many small SUVs, towed more than competing midsize pickups and was at home in downtown traffic, on the highway and twisting country roads.
Prices start at $33,545. The most expensive model, a Rubicon loaded with offroad gear, starts at $43,545.

If they come out with a two door (I know they won't, but for the sake of argument) I'll buy a stripped Sport the minute they put them up for sale. I'd sell my JKUR in a heartbeat for one.

At around $33K, it would be a steal.

Cool as a collector item. The special edition from what I've read is badging and wheels. You were selected front a dealer to purchase or you were one of the first to attempt to sign up to buy and they accepted your purchase. I'm interested to see if they are gonna try and Mark these up over msrp.

I would think all these gladiator purchasers would want to wait for the diesel option but I guess not. That v6 is already limited and the new models increased from 350-600 pounds approximately.

i test drove a trail boss and it was ho hum. It was also over $40000 and that was pretty basic had the 5.3L double cab. Know I agree if you could get a new Trail boss for 32,000 that would be a good deal but would never be near as capable as the Gladiator if the intended use was to go off road.

In the mid trucks I think they did good with base pricing. It's when optioned out and getting into 55-65k it gets out of line. It will only get worse once diesel option is released for pricing structure. I've read several reviews saying that the pentastar really struggles pulling a 6k trailer (not even max weight) "does it...but struggles" That's where the higher HP engines will have a slight advantage. Anything above base models I feel zr2 is a great buy but it is missing removable items and disconnecting sway bar. I also feel that other trucks have some wiggle room off list price and Jeep is usually pretty tight on that so that is another thing to consider. Especially right now when demand may exceed supply. I like the front of the jt but the other dimensions are off to me so I feel other trucks are sexier.

Remember car dealerships are there to protect consumers, hence you can't buy cars directly from the manufacturer LOL; they think we're stupid.

In the Great State of Texas you can walk into a GM dealer and buy a Chinese made SUV (Buick Envision) but they will not allow Tesla to sell American made cars.

In Texas everything is big, even the hypocrites.

Perhaps but let's be honest- 99% of people who buy the Gladiator, and all jeeps included, won't experience any off roading other than maybe a dirt road or a camping trail...
