The Jeep Gladiator can do it all, has the best trailer, transport and driving everything in an attractive package (we must know, we have handled it). But the buyers, apparently, could not wait to get their hands on the full truck; Yesterday, Jeep opened the order forms to the limited edition Gladiator and sold out almost immediately.
Customers collected the 4,190 examples of the Gladiator Release Edition in less than 24 hours. The $ 60,815 truck is essentially a fully loaded Rubicon with special wheels, exclusive interior details and unique hallmarks, such as the nickname "One of 4,190" forged on the tailgate. But Jeep may have attracted some faithful with the possibility of winning $ 100,000 as part of an advance order.
Jeep's "Find Your Freedom" contest puts anyone who pre-ordered a launch edition Gladiator in the race for $ 100,000. Jeep encourages the final winner to take that money, get rid of work for a whole year and do Jeep stuff on his new truck. Where do we sign up?
"There has been a lot of interest in the new Jeep Gladiator since it was first revealed late last year," said Tim Kuniskis, Jeep Brand Director for North America. "This was made even more evident by the incredible response of the 4,190 owners of the next edition of Gladiator, who will soon be pre-ordering their vehicles."
For those of you who were not quick enough to get a release edition Gladiator, do not worry. The 2020 Gladiator Jeep will arrive at dealerships this summer and you will not have to pay $ 60,000 to get one. The base sports model starts at only $ 33,545. The next Sport S costs $ 36,755, the Overland model costs $ 40,395 and the top Rubicon range costs $ 43,545 (all before the destination fees).
Whichever setting you choose, the Gladiator uses the same 3.6-liter Pentastar V6. That engine produces 285 horsepower (212 kilowatts) and 260 foot-pounds (352 Newton-meters) of torque, with the option of a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic.

A limited execution version of the return of the Jeep® brand to the pickup truck market, the Gladiator Jeep 2020 Release Edition, has run out on the limited pre-order opportunity. The exclusive Jeep Gladiator Launch Edition was offered for pre-order to the general public on the Jeep 4×4 Day, on April 4. The pre-order process, which included selecting Jeep Gladiator Launch Edition and connecting with a distributor, allowed buyers to begin the online ordering process through a dedicated Jeep Gladiator Concierge.
"There has been a lot of interest in the new Jeep Gladiator since it was first revealed late last year," said Tim Kuniskis, Jeep Brand Director – North America. "This was made even more evident by the incredible response of the 4,190 owners of the next edition of Gladiator, who will soon be pre-ordering their vehicles. The answer has inspired us both in the Jeep brand and the United States Army veteran Noah Galloway. So, although the details are still to come, we plan to "pay it up front" together in a special way with Noah in May during the month of military appraisal. "
Consumers who pre-ordered a Jeep Gladiator Launch Edition model are now eligible exclusively to participate in the "Find Your Freedom" contest, where they will have the opportunity to earn what Gladiator offers: Jeep Freedom. More specifically, a person can earn a salary of $ 100,000 for a year, so they can take time off to enjoy the Jeep lifestyle by pursuing any outdoor adventure. To participate, they will present their personal "Gladiator" video to be judged by the Jeep brand along with the wounded warrior and US Army veteran Noah Galloway, who will choose the winner. Galloway shares more details in this video.
The new Jeep Gladiator Launch Edition will feature unique interior rims and accents, as well as a "One of 4,190" label on the forged aluminum tailgate. The number is a tribute to Toledo, Ohio, and its 419 area code, where Gladiator and Jeep Wrangler are proudly reunited.
Manufactured at Toledo Supplier Park in Toledo, Ohio, the new 2020 Jeep Gladiator arrives at Jeep showroom this spring.
