Fiat Chrysler has released pricing on the upcoming 2020 Jeep Gladiator midsize pickup.
As we discussed earlier, prices on pickups are still somewhat higher than most people would like, and we double the Gladiator is going to change that opinion. Even the cheapest Gladiator starts at $35,000, while the most expensive trim will push you close to $50,000.
Starting at the bottom-tier trim, the Sport, you’ll need to fork over $33,545 plus $1,495 destination. What you get is extremely barebones: under the hood is the 3.6-L Pentastar V6 we all know and love, with 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Everything is manual--manual locks, manual windows, a manual 6-speed transmission, manual air conditioning, and an itty-bitty 5-inch infotainment system that does come with much.
On the plus side, this is one of the few ways to get a manual transmission in a pickup. On the downside, this is a very expensive barebones pickup.
Next up we have the Sport S starting at $36,745. Moving one step up gives us power back, including power windows, locks, and remote keyless entry. Heated mirrors are an added luxury, as is the 7-inch Uconnect infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Overland is our third trim, starting at $40,395. With the Overland, you get side steps, body-colored fenders, dual-zone climate control, and larger 18-inch wheels.
And at the top of the pack is the Rubicon. Starting at $43,545 you get everything you could have asked for, including both front and rear locking differentials, Rock-Trac 4WD System (which is basically Jeep’s version of crawl control), a 2-speed transfer case, Fox 2.0 internal bypass shocks, and 17-inch wheels with Falken Wildpeak all-terrain tires.
For those looking for something a little more unique, Jeep also offers the Launch Edition Gladiator. Basically the same as the Rubicon but with every available feature and unique badging and interior accents. It starts at $60,815, so you’d have to really want a Gladiator to get one.
On top of that, you’ll have the option of entering into a contest to win $100,000. All you gotta do is record a video explaining to Jeep what you’ll do with your new Gladiator. If it’s cool enough, you win. Order now through Jeep.com and get recording.
We’ll see the Gladiator hit dealers this Spring, so stay tuned.
