    Yep. Full-time, just like what is available on the 2021 Wrangler.

    This is the one thing I regret not being able to get on a 2020.
    However it appears Gator may be gone for 2021 and I love that color (though Sarge would be nice). Ordinarily I'd consider trading in a year when I have 20k or so miles. But so far, I've only put 900 miles on in 3 months so I may be keeping this one longer.

    That just made my day! :D

    It was always something I regretted not getting for my Liberty when I ordered it. I had contemplated changing out the transfer case at one point, but in hindsight I’m glad I didn’t waste the time and effort because the frame was in such bad shape. I had really hoped they would offer it on Gladiator, and I figured they would at some point.

    Sarge has delayed availability so Gator may be available initially. It's not showing me the color options, aside from the new ones.

    Not sure. Someone on another forum tried to order a diesel in Gator and couldn't.

    I am also surprised to see no eTorque on the 2021 Gladiator.

    Moving Altitude back to a trim package on the Grand Cherokee is a mistake, in my opinion. It's a recognizable trim level at this point and will likely come back on the WL, so why cause unnecessary confusion? Jeep says 40% of Grand Cherokees come with a dark appearance package: Upland, Altitude, Limited X, or High Altitude. I'm betting most of those are Altitude as it's really a great value.

    I like - Laredo, Altitude, Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, and Summit for the Grand Cherokee trim structure, with other things like Upland, Limited X, and High Altitude being made packages instead of standalone trims.

    You can change "jl Sahara" with ford bronco and it would be the same exact thing. neither look like much of anything but that because they are both retro to their counterparts

    Retro doesn't mean an interior can't be nicely appointed.

    The Jeep's interior looks nicer. The materials look better and the design isn't so flat, plain, and cheap looking. The Bronco looks like...plastic, just like most other Ford interiors.

    I don't mind the Bronco interior. But the way the controls are just hanging there below, it makes me think of the days when an AM radio was all most cars had and there was either an FM converter or a tape deck mounted under the dash.

    Is the Bronco's interior water resistant?

    ABS plastic is easily damaged by acids, so no...

    I remember seeing a new Explorer earlier this year and I was surprised how disappointing some of the center stack plastics felt and looked...

    Ford's interiors are garbage.

    The Bronco interior pictured above is pre-prod. Production will have graining, colors, etc...

    Yeah, that Bronco interior is hideous. I mean, in the pic above, the material on the door and the dash looks all loose and bunched up...the fit and finish is horrendous! :rolleyes::D

    I suspect this is the case, but it's a stupid thing to do. Spy-shots are used by manufacturers as free advertising (look at how Maserati is so "unlucky" to have its MC20 prototypes snapped as soon as they leave the factory gates, even when the runs happen at night). If those were pre-prod parts, they should have been taped over or disguised in some way to stop people thinking that the interior was going to be crap based on seeing them.

    All of the Jeep, Alfa or FIAT mules that I've seen snapped have either had "duct-tape-and-gum" interiors (the Ram1500 shifter control taped into a 500E comes to mind), or final, production plastics inside them.
