In less than 24 hours the long-awaited 2020 Jeep Gladiator sold out of every special Launch Edition trim. Of course, there were only 4,190 vehicles but worry not, there will be more. Before long, we too will have the all-new Jeep Gladiator in all its glory. A vehicle that is capable of providing all the perks of a mid-size pickup (a solid steel bed, 4×4 capabilities and Best-in-class towing up to 7,650 pounds) with the solid engineering of Jeep. With a long history of making the greatest vehicles made for adventure, Jeep has a lot riding on its newest creation and demand is going through the roof. Naturally, the first Jeep pickup since 1992 was going to be prized and sought after, but the expectations were exceeded. We’re happy to go over the pricing and what customers can expect once the 2020 Jeep Gladiator arrives at our store.
Special Launch Edition Was A Hit
The Launch Edition came with cool badges, a unique plate stating the exact number of the 4,190 Gladiator pickups, gloss-black wheels, and 33-inch Falken all-terrain tires. The total number of Gladiator trucks is a nod to the area code (419) where the vehicle was built in Toledo, Ohio. The total price of this special launch addition was more expensive than the highest price trim, the Rubicon, at $62,310. That price didn’t scare off buyers as this limited run and the fact to own the first ever Jeep Gladiator was worth it for those who were lucky enough to buy one. Jeep took it a step further to begin a raffle that will allow one of the owners to receive a $100,000 gift as the Jeep brand’s way of repaying their loyalty.
“There has been significant interest in the all-new Jeep Gladiator since it was first revealed late last year. This was made further evident by the incredible response of the 4,190 soon-to-be Gladiator Launch Edition owners, who pre-ordered their vehicles yesterday,” said Tim Kuniskis, head of Jeep North America.
Pricing and Gas Mileage For the 2020 Jeep Gladiator
With class-leading towing, a gas saving diesel option and the off-road ability of the beloved Jeep Wrangler, what more could a customer ask for? The entry-level 2020 Jeep Gladiator Sport begins at $33,545 MSRP (plus destination fee), then comes the Sport S at $36,745 MSRP (plus destination fee), followed by the Overland trim at $40,395 MSRP (plus destination fee) and lastly, the fourth and best trim option, the Rubicon at $43,545 MSRP (plus destination fee).
So what do owners get with each trim? There are different powertrain options that will change the price and offer different gas mileage. The trusted 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 engine offers 17 city and 22 highway MPG, which this powertrain offers 285 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, more than respectable. While the mild-hybrid diesel option won’t be available till 2020, they will have a 3.0-Liter turbodiesel V6 that is expected to offer 260 horsepower with a very strong 442 lb-ft of torque.
Perks For Each Trim
Each trim provides the solid 5-link coil suspension system for both the front and back, incredible off-roading capabilities and depending on which trim is chosen, available on-road safety features like rear cross-traffic alerts, blind-spot warnings as well as adaptive cruise control. There are four trims in total, the middle tier trims upgrade the tires to 32-inch Bridgestone tires, though the highest trim includes the same Falken all-terrain tires that came with the Launch Edition. The base model includes a 5-inch touchscreen for the Uconnect infotainment system, the Sport S and Overland trim have a 7-inch screen, but the Rubicon has an 8.4-inch touchscreen. This larger screen is optional for the Sport and Overland.
The Rubicon adds an off-road rear bumper, steel rocker guards and a Bluetooth wireless speaker that is an optional feature for the other trims. The Rubicon adds shorter gearing, electronic locking front and rear differentials with a raised fender flare in case the owner wants to put 35-inch wheels. Off-road equipment that is standard for the Rubicon includes Fox monotube shocks, a front-mounted trail camera, and an electronic anti-roll bar disconnect. There is so much to love and check out, regardless which trim an owner decides upon.
