This is going to sell like nuts.

Prices are not a lot more than the Ranger and I'd need a SawZall to be able to take the top off my Ranger.

Super Win for Jeep.  (I'd still rather have my Ranger)

The low end seems a bit expensive for what you get. Rubicon starting at 45k doesn’t seem bad though. I like how it looks, but a convertible roof and fold down windshield aren’t worth the premium to me.

Heep understands manual transmission and no carpet still has a place...friends dont let friends by heeps....but FCA will sell every dam gladiator they can produce....the demand for  04 -06 2 door unlimited long bed LJ'S is huge and prices for the earlier scramblers have been insane for last 15 years....if heep ever produces another 2 door unlimited it will roll out if showrooms in record pace....

That’s about 5k more than a 4x4 supercrew xl and 1k more than a 4x4 supercrew xlt.

Rubicon starts at $45k.

The Jeep pricing in that article included shipping.  The Ranger XL SuperCrew without shipping starts at $30,680, the Gladiator without shipping starts at 33,545....a difference of less than $3k.

Let's get down to the brass tacks of the Gladiator pricing structure:

  • Gladiator Sport - $33,545
  • Gladiator Sport S - $36,745
  • Gladiator Overland - $40,395
  • Gladiator Rubicon - $43,545

All prices are before a $1,495 shipping charge, because apparently Toledo, Ohio is located on the planet Mars.

$1,495 for shipping?  Holy crap, that's more then a F450 shipping fee.

Agreed - When I bought my Edge the runners up were Colorado and Wrangler - This scratches two itches, and adds the convertible factor.

Its going to get a hard look when I replace my Edge. I’m leery of FCA, but my Edge had/has a lot of nagging issues that they haven’t been able to fix, and it rattles worse than our 2010 Flex with 125,000 miles (But it’s [the Flex] seemingly built like a tank).

Yeah, I noticed that afterwards and was too lazy to fix it. 

However, an automatic trans on the Jeep is a 2k option so that bumps it back up to to about a 5k difference if you wanted an auto.

this will go either very good or very bad for Jeep, there will be no in between with this fella. I wonder though, whether Wrangler sales becomes collateral damage, there’s 90,000 of them sitting in inventory.

dont get me wrong here, Jeep is pushing all the right buttons with Gladiator for it to be a runaway success but something tells me it wil come at a cost elsewhere

but equally, that cost (lost sales?) may end up being  something that other  manufacturers should be worrying about, not Jeep

I believe in this segment (Mid sized pickups) The Gladiator will be a runaway hit. I don't think it will pinch many sales away from Wrangler. I think it will steal sales away from other brands. I also think the brands that will have the most to lose will be Nissan and Toyota, whose dated products stand in stark contrast to this, as well as Jeep's ability to appeal to customers who wouldn't otherwise consider an American brand.

This will be interesting to see how the Gladiator does. I like Jeeps and the Gladiator is pretty cool, but Jeeps are not smooth riding vehicles. The ride in my friends Jeep is quite awful, with the caveat that it is lifted with 35’s. My sister’s  unlifted Unlimited is only marginally better. I’m guessing it will depend on people’s willingness to accept the compromised ride, unless they have somehow managed to make big improvements in the ride quality.

Are those JL's (not last gen JK)?  I have only heard that the JL rides much better than the JKs.

Supposedly the Gladiator rides better than the standard JL Wranglers due to the increased wheelbase.

Doug puts his spin on the Gladiator and all its "features and quirks".

They are JKs.  I have not experienced the JLs yet, so I can’t comment on their ride.

I think there will be dealer "adjusted market prices" aka mark ups, and waiting lists, etc. But, I also agree will take sales from Wrangler 4 doors, and maybe Cherokee/Compass.

Can also see some owners overloading the rear bed.

I watched the majority of Doug's video review, I've yet to determine if a 48" wide sheet of plywood or drywall can be carried. I see the 2x4 recesses ahead of the wheel wells, presumably for a raised cross-brace, but no mention if the tailgate can be set to support a sheet, IF the opening in the bed is wide enough.

IIRC Wranglers sell well, but they often lose repeat customers because of the harshness of them, which turns off a pretty good percentage of buyers. I think their popularity might be similar to what the Mustang is-makes a great second/third car, but not a daily driver.

This is the big hole that Ford needs to aim the Bronco at.

I don’t find this surprising for a brand new model such as the Gladiator.
