Question Anyone thinking of picking up a Gladiator?

Just curious if anyone is already thinking about going to the new gladiator when itís finally available?

Seems the pricing will be in line with the 4R.

Thoughts ?

Not I.

The only Jeep model I'd want would be in the Rubicon trim, and at that real-world price point I'd be damn close to Raptor range, which if looking at a truck, is where I'd be. If the pricing does come in a bit lower than I'm expecting, I'd still be in the full size category though.

I can't think of a single plus for going Gladiator.

I really wanted one to take when I give the 4runner to my wife but after seeing it in person I'm out. The dimensions are livable but head room is an issue for me. For me it boils down to cost. A Rubicon will like be $55kish which is just too much for me to spend on a midsize truck.

I'm having a hard time taking it seriously.

I know it should be able to off-road, but MOPAR scares me with their electronics. Looks like they let the Renegade designers on it for a while. It just seems like a toy or lifestyle fantasy vehicle. Something for people that say "brah" all the time.

I've been a Jeep guy since I was a kid, still have my dad's first Jeep, but no. I was really excited for JEEP to bring back a truck, I loved the J10/J20 and the Comanche was neat, but the Gladiator is essentially the current JL Wrangler with a bed. Same engine, same axles, nothing special. For now my 1st gen Taco does the trick.

I want one. It'll never impress me with quality, but I dig it. Can anyone blame them from slapping a bed on a 4dr wrangler? No one buys single cab pickups anymore unless they are running a pest control business. It just isn't sexy enough to make money.

Itíll be capable, but itís still a Jeep. Just google Jeep reliability and Toyota/4Runner reliability. I like Jeeps, but their is a reason I went Toyotaósuperior reliability and build quality.

I agree with your overall premise, but it's kind of disingenuous to cherry-pick links that 100% agree with your point. That said, I'd love to know where the 4Runner falls in the JD Power rankings.
