Looks like its $45,900 MSRP as from factory, not a bad price, comparative to current markets.

Then the dealer added "goodies" for $22k. Is that where your "gripe" comes in? The Urban Terrain package for $16k seems to be a bit high, but you do pay for convenience and "look at me" factor.

I understand the extra stuff from the dealer is what drove the price up. But my point is going in to buying a $70,000 loaded JT. That’s all.
An Overland stock was $50k.
Hell had a loaded JLU SPORT similar build $57k!

You'd be surprised how much people from Columbia are willing to spend...

I sold my slightly used 2 year old 2010 Grand Cherokee SRT8 to a 21 year old kid from Columbia. He paid me what I bought it for brand new, shipped it to Stage 6 Motorsports in Florida and had the entire Jeep disassembled and reassembled.

Repainted it Ferrari Grigio Titanio (Gray)...

Installed a 1,000HP 440 Aluminum Hemi with Stage 6 Twin-Turbo's.

Shipped it back to Columbia ($15K) and he runs the 1/4 mile in 9 sec at 8,000 Ft.


His name is Mario... check it out on YouTube.

@m998dna OK, so now the Columbians are responsible for high Jeep prices. I think you may be influenced by the Macedonian content farmers.

When I found out that the Gladiator was finally going to happen, I was set to buy one. It seemed to be a good compromise between a pickup and my JK. I'm not knocking them now after looking at them, but I'm going to get a Colorado ZR2. More bang for the buck I think. The Gladiator is just too darn much money and not better than the ZR2 in most areas. How Jeep can price the Gladiator that high is beyond me. The Jeep was always a blue collar rig but no more apparently. Just no over riding reason for me to buy one now.

That isn't even a Rubicon. My JT Rubicon cost me $54k. The lift goes on this weekend for about $300 including parts.

IF "Purge" ever came to pass...... I'd be "aiming at stupid(s)"..... I have about 14,000 rds of ammo (at last count) Not enough time/not enough ammo.

IF I did end up with leftover.... rude would be next.

So, a question. Does anyone here in the group know the actual law on exporting 2020 JTs. We have been told that (recent) US export laws actually prevent new model year cars from being exported, at least into the Caribbean. I’m not talking about illegal export/imports but legal, documented, taxed exports of the JT.

Thanks!

I elected for the most basic of lifts that you can buy - the $129 Rough Country spacer lift. I plan to run my stock tires so I don't want to change the coil rate nor the perfect Fox shocks out at this time.

Took my JK to the dealer today for an oil change. Decided to peruse the new gladiators. Pic is of a sport with mopar 2" lift and 35's.

Anyone want a guess of the cost? Nope, all wrong.

$72000. No, that is not a typo. For a sport. Wheels/tires are $6k. Lift is $7k. Then we have an "arizona market adjustment" of $10k.

My previous vehicles were trucks. I really do miss having a bed to move large items. JTs on 35's and 37's look awesome. Maybe a year or 2 when prices are under arm and leg, and the aftermarket people catch up, I would consider trading my JKUR in.

Damn near $80k for a lifted sport? Looking at 6 figures for a lifted rubicon. @#$* NO!!

Why are the dealers doing this? Because they can. I've seen about half a dozen or on the street

The “market adjustment” is we are going to screw you if you’re dumb enough to let us.”

You seem to have an issue with pricing in general.

I was at the local dealer last weekend getting my final Jeep Wave service. Looked at a couple Gladiators on their lot. One was $62K the other $64K.

Ridiculous.

Ridiculous.
Ontario Jeep Dodge has them for roughly $5,000 less than those prices. Look for them online.
