Way more affordable than I imagined!

https://www.jeep.com/build.gladiator...X9,PRC,23B,APA

I went on Jeeps website to take a look and was shocked to see that regardless of model - The Net Price for the Gladiator is only $1495 !!

That is Waaay Less than I thought it would be, I might buy two(2).

FCA put the "Glad" in Gladiator with that price

So, they finally came up with a price to match their quality.

Might require 80k in upgrades to be able to drive it off the lot.

Max Tow package on the Sport trim, is very intriguing. It gives you the Rubicon's front & rear wide D44 axles with 4.10 gears.

At that price, I'm ordering 2, 1 with a stick and one auto.

I guess this pricing is because they have so many JL's on the lots right now. It will do wonders to making Jeep the #1 truck seller.

It'll be appropriate for pricing to be live on April 1, since it will be laughable.....

JT pricing was finally revealed. Prices start at $37,040 for a bare-bones Sport with stick-shift and soft top. Rubicon starts at $47,040 with automatic, and hits $60,000 with hardtop, leather and navigation. Dealer markups are extra.

Instead of having to shove people with low Fico scores out of the way, FCA is taking pre-orders for a limited-run “Launch” edition. Given FCA’s obsession with quality control, hopefully the requisite hood sticker doesn’t spell “Lunch”.

This entire three-ring circus makes me wanna barf https://www.autonews.com/retail/jeep...premium-player

it says 35000 including shipping for the standard and $37000 including shipping for auto so I think that is a very good price.

This may put me back in the new car market in 2020 to replace our 2010 JKUR.

For reference, a well-equipped GMC Canyon Denali has a MSRP in the low to mid 40s, and transacts in the mid to high thirties. For that price, you will be getting a stripped JT.

Ultimately, getting a sense of “value” is very personal and subjective matter. Nevertheless, value is a very important piece in every purchase decision. We will have to see how many buyers actually get that sense of value and follow through with their purchase.

The real test for Gladiator sales will come after years 1 and 2, when the hype has subsided.

well without driving either I would rather have a stripped gladiator then a decked out Canyon any day. I gotta say I am very excited that they priced out as low as they did.

For the heated ball massager and stop light makup assist crowd, you're probably going to be better off buying the GMC. The core competencies of a Jeep are lost on you, so you should go with what excels at your requirements.

If you compare base models, the JT is a better buy, if you compare top of the line off road models, the Jeep is superior. If you cherry pick to validate your hate, I'm sure you can find that special combination of luxury features that makes a Denali the better buy.

Yup. Everyone is so caught up in the frenzy can’t see the obvious anymore.

Anyway, have to give it to FCA for playing consumers like a violin.

I'm a bit surprised that the base pricing is semi-reasonable.

But then you start adding options and it's almost like spec'ing out a Porsche. Seems reasonable at first, then balloons fast as you tick the boxes.

The Overland is the most appealing to me, and the $40,395 base is definitely lower than I expected. But by the time I was done making it how I'd want it, and by no means fully optioned I might add, it's just a tick under $52K. Sorry, Jeep, no sale.

Damn thing has two too many doors and is waaay too long anyway.....

Just for "fun" (Why do I do this to myself?) I was tinkering around with building a Rubicon on the Jeep site. Had to close the browser window when I realized I'd built something with a sticker price twice what I paid for my JKU Sport.

Yeah, it's good for a laugh.

The 2-door Rubi I'd like is also over $50K. Hilarious.
