You can now build—but not price— on Jeep's website. So not only do you have a new until the Wrangler-based truck goes on sale in the second half of next year, you don't even have to think about how much your dream Jeep pickup truck costs.
is offered in several different combinations, as it includes four different trim levels, either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission, and a whole bevy of options. The exterior color options offer some fun choices, too, including green (Gator), sand (Gobi), and orange (Punk'n) hues. The Sport is the base trim, with a relatively sparse set of equipment, while the Sport S adds basics such as power windows and locks, 17-inch wheels, and keyless entry. The Overland aims to be more luxurious with body-color fenders, 18-inch wheels, and a range of options that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and leather seats. The same off-road-oriented Rubicon trim familiar from the Wrangler is offered on the Gladiator, too, with an upgraded four-wheel-drive system, beefier off-road tires, Fox shocks, locking front and rear differentials, and massive Rubicon badges.
All Gladiator models come with a 3.6-liter V6 engine—the optional turbocharged four-cylinder from the Wrangler is absent here, and the diesel will come slightly later—and standard four-wheel drive. It's rated to tow a maximum of 7650 pounds when equipped with the Trailer Tow package, and the five-foot bed can haul 1600 pounds of payload.
Jeep won't announce prices for the Gladiator for quite a few months, but judging by all the options offered on the configurator, fully loaded models are likely to cost a pretty penny (optioned-up Wranglers can top $50,000, and the pickup is likely to command a premium). But you don't have to worry about that for now, so get to building your own.
