Build your Jeep Gladiator online without pricing

by Patrick Rall on

We have been getting questions about Jeep Gladiator pricing for some time now and, unfortunately, we still do not have any more information. Those folks who are good enough to provide Allpar with pricing information on hot, new models still don’t have any updates, so for now, we still don’t have any detailed pricing on the long-awaited Jeep pickup.

However, for prospective Gladiator buyers who are interested in seeing which options and features are included in the various trim levels, the Jeep website does have the “Build & Price” feature active for the new mid-sized pickup – but there is no pricing. This means that you can configure the Gladiator of your dreams today, but you will have to wait a bit longer to find out how much it will cost.

We assure you that as soon as we have detailed pricing information on the Gladiator, we will share it with the masses, but for now, we can still use the configurator for the pickup to kill some time on a slow Monday.

Option Availability

When the Gladiator hits the market at full force later this year, it will be available in Sport, Sport S, Overland and Rubicon trim, all of which are available for configuration on Jeep.com. Of course, the pricier trim levels come with more standard features and more optional upgrades, with the most notable difference being the fact that you cannot get the 8.4-inch UConnect system in the Sport or Sport S models. To get Jeep’s premium infotainment package, you have to go with the Overland or Rubicon, but in both cases, the high-end gadgets are not standard.

As a result, buyers who want the premium capabilities of the Rubicon won’t be “forced” to get premium interior features such as leather seats or the big screen, helping to keep the cost down for those buyers who don’t want those expensive options. Some buyers will complain that leather and the premium infotainment system isn’t standard in the top-of-the-line models, but it is a great move to help keep prices down and to more accurately give buyers what they want.

Building the Gladiator

We imagine that most people who are window shopping and dreaming of buying a new Gladiator will be looking at the Rubicon, as that is the most capable model while also offering the most aggressive exterior styling. With that in mind, we will use the Rubicon as the example for our online Gladiator build.

When you first enter the configurator for the 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon, the only powertrain option is picking between the standard 6-speed manual transmission and the optional 8-speed automatic. The 3.6-liter Pentastar is currently standard on all models, as it four-wheel-drive, while the Rubicon features a standard 4.10 rear axle.

Next, the Gladiator Rubicon has a bunch of packages to pick from, including the Trailer Tow, Premium LED Lighting Group, Cold Weather Group, the premium audio group (includes the 8.4-inch screen), Jeep Active Safety Group, Jeep Advanced Safety Group, Auxiliary Switch Group, Smoker’s Group and the Cargo Management Group with the Trail Rail System. For my uses, I would pick the towing package, the premium audio package, the cold weather package, the auxiliary switch package, the smoker’s package (for the cigar lighter to serve as another power point) and the cargo management system. I would also pick the premium lighting package, and I will point out why later on in the piece.

After picking your packages, you head into the Exterior portion of the build, where you pick from ten different colors and four different options for the top before deciding whether or not you want a roll-up tonneau cover, a spray-in bedliner, a front-end camera system, remote keyless entry and the winch-ready front bumper. To get that front bumper, you have to also get the premium lighting package, which is the key reason why I opted to add that to my build.

Finally, the last portion of the Gladiator build is the Interior, and there are some interesting options here. As mentioned above, cloth seats are standard, but the Rubicon can be outfitted with leather in black or dark saddle (brown). You can also add a wireless Bluetooth speaker system, all-weather slush mats, a hardliner for hard-top models, remote start for automatic transmission models and a trailer brake control knob that is a must-have for anyone towing with their Jeep pickup.

Generally, this is the point at which we would discuss pricing of our ideal build, but as mentioned, even our friends who provide us with pricing ahead of the official announcements hasn’t gotten ahold of it yet, but when we have it – you’ll find it here on Allpar.
