This is the place where the magic happens and myths become reality - the 2018 L.A. Auto Show.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/_data/i/upload/2018/11/28/20181128215338-a243dc30-me.jpg

While this may look like an unassuming tent - the loud music and heavy drum beat emanating from it could only mean one thing - big things were about to happen!
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/_data/i/upload/2018/11/28/20181128215340-fb56d005-me.jpg

On this stage - shrouded with colorful lights, the unicorn will appear.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/_data/i/upload/2018/11/28/20181128215342-005962b3-me.jpg

And at long last, it emerged from the darkness.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/_data/i/upload/2018/11/28/20181128215351-ad26bd35-me.jpg

And was joined by 2 others in different forms and colors.

Of the 4 Gladiators that were on display at the 2018 L.A Auto Show, this Granite Crystal Overland, essentially a Sahara, was the only one wearing a hard top or any top for that matter.

Nice to see that the rear window not only came tinted and with defrosters but it also had a sliding glass opening in the center of it.

During the theatrical reveal at the 2018 L.A. Auto Show, it was kind of hard to tell exactly what color this Rubicon Gladiator was but once inside the Convention Center, it became clear that it was Gobi. Essentially a light tan color that looked really nice. Being doorless and topless really made this Gladiator stand out.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/_data/i/upload/2018/11/28/20181128220013-25a0b7af-me.jpg

Here you can see how the Gladiator rear seating area looks just like the JL Wrangler Unlimited.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/_data/i/upload/2018/11/28/20181128220045-aae05df8-me.jpg

Here's a shot of the rear split bench seat folded down on the passenger side.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/_data/i/upload/2018/11/28/20181128220038-63deb0ac-me.jpg

Up against the rear wall, you can see the portable bluetooth speaker secured in it's recharging cradle.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/_data/i/upload/2018/11/28/20181128220041-f20b6990-me.jpg

This is what it looks like removed and ready to play some tunes around the campfire.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/_data/i/upload/2018/11/28/20181128220043-84d5e3d2-me.jpg

It's just sooooo cool that you can remove the top and doors on this thing!
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/_data/i/upload/2018/11/28/20181128220055-b93bdd32-me.jpg

Shot of the rear end with the tailgate down.

https://www.wayalife.com/photos/_data/i/upload/2018/11/28/20181128220024-8f40e675-me.jpg

Here's a shot of one of two cargo bed lights and the way cool 115v socket.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/_data/i/upload/2018/11/28/20181128220020-7853cfc9-me.jpg

On Rubicon models, the rear bumper comes in steel standard and they also come with these very nice steel corner guards bolted to the frame.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/_data/i/upload/2018/11/28/20181128220027-d0dffbd4-me.jpg

https://www.wayalife.com/photos/_data/i/upload/2018/11/28/20181128220028-44f2f274-me.jpg

For the first time ever, the Gladiator will come with Fox 2.0 shocks.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/_data/i/upload/2018/11/28/20181128220034-4b15cc99-me.jpg

Last but not least, Rubicon Gladiators will come with a forward facing off road camera complete with washer to keep it clean!
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/_data/i/upload/2018/11/28/20181128220047-c133f26e-me.jpg

https://www.wayalife.com/photos/_data/i/upload/2018/11/28/20181128220049-43490ff3-me.jpg

The camera will also show you which way your tires are pointing as you drive.

Last but not least is this super sharp looking Stingray Gladiator Rubicon, with a Mopar 2" lift installed and 35" BFG MT's! Doesn't get much nicer than this.

Wow, really nice! The article said that the 3.6 would have the 6 speed manual or 6 speed automatic and that the diesel will have the 8 speed auto. Must be inaccurate since I would think the 8 speed auto would be across the board. The rear flairs look a little weird, but I think Iíd be able too get past it.

Link is working again. The bird's eye pic is very interesting because it shows just how square the bed is (almost looks wider than the rest of the Jeep but it must be an optical illusion.)

I can't believe the tow rating...this Gladiator could easily turn the midsize truck market on its head.

That's interesting because every other pic shows the fender going over the gap. I wonder if it looks different in your pic because there is weight in the bed.

Interesting piece of tech i saw mentioned was a forward looking trail cam that seems to analyze obstacles and draw the best line to take. Although pretty rad, kinda takes the fun out of finding the line for yourself imo.

If you want a pickup, buy a pickup. This is perfect for the person that canít have both.

I'm actually surprised it isn't a 1/4 ton. The capacity and towing are impressive. How big is the bed?

During the theatrical reveal at the 2018 L.A. Auto Show, it was kind of hard to tell exactly what color this Rubicon Gladiator was but once inside the Convention Center, it became clear that it was Gobi. Essentially a light tan color that looked really nice. Being doorless and topless really made this Gladiator stand out.

Finally something to make the Tacoma sweat a little bit, and considering the top of the line Tacoma TRD pro is in the $50k price range and offers little more than a standard SR5 for double the price, this will instantly be a hit. Iíd say job well done! All of a sudden, a truck may be back in our future.

Dammit, I had to click on the damn link. This is even nicer than I thought it was gonna be..

Trust me, when you see it in person, it's even NICER. :crazyeyes:


So....you selling Moby?

Oh, no way! We already sold Rubicat.


I think it would look awesome towing my Jk on a flatbed:brows:

You can think that but I wouldn't be towing my JK with this truck.


I love that the doors and top come off and it looks like they even have a bed cover tested!


The doorless and topless of the Gladiator IS what makes it so badass. Simply stunning.


Wow, really nice! The article said that the 3.6 would have the 6 speed manual or 6 speed automatic and that the diesel will have the 8 speed auto. Must be inaccurate since I would think the 8 speed auto would be across the board. The rear flairs look a little weird, but I think Iíd be able too get past it.

Nope, you read correctly. The diesel will ONLY come with the 8-speed auto.

Bikini would look great on the west coast glass beaches.

Any word on a 2 door?

There will NOT be a 2-door version of the Gladiator.


I can only imagine the base price!


I bet it's $45-50k based on how much is different between the two

Nobody is talking but that typically means it'll be up there for sure.


Man you guys burn the candle awful bright these days. Grateful for all the great content but damn, do you guys ever sleep!

LOL! There will be plenty of time to sleep when we're dead :crazyeyes:


Oh that Jeep truck is looking cool, would be awesome with a diesel option.

Yes it would be but you're gonna have to wait for it.


There's a line in there regarding Mopar offering half doors. Are half doors available on the JL's? I have not seen that in the option list and it's one of the great regrets I have in not ordering them
for my Jeep. :grayno:

No half doors as of yet and it sucks. I so would love to have a set.


Link is working again. The bird's eye pic is very interesting because it shows just how square the bed is (almost looks wider than the rest of the Jeep but it must be an optical illusion.)

I can't believe the tow rating...this Gladiator could easily turn the midsize truck market on its head.

The tow rating is impressive but the highest rating is only available on the Sport S. Rubicon is a bit lower.

wayoflife
11-29-2018, 07:56 AM
I wonder what they mean by bigger axles?


I guess, they must be talking about the wider JL axles vs JK

I confirmed that the front is exactly the same as what you find on a JL. The rear is for the most part the same - just modified to make it capable for towing.


I like Gator and Sting gray. :rock:

I was told that Gator is the same color that you would find on a hipwader or slilcker boot. A nice dark green. Sting looked really nice on the Gladiator. :yup:


Looks like Sport and Overland have lower front fenders.

Sport:


Yes, this is correct. Just like the JL.


V8 option?

Negative


Nope. Not mentioned anyways. 3.6L gas for now. 3.0L Diesel next year.

Correct. 3.6L and a future 3.0L diesel are the only motors that will be made available or at least, for now anyway.

Interesting piece of tech i saw mentioned was a forward looking trail cam that seems to analyze obstacles and draw the best line to take. Although pretty rad, kinda takes the fun out of finding the line for yourself imo.

It's a forward camera that shows you the path you will take based on the position of your steering wheel. It does NOT analyze anything. It does however have a cool washer to clean the lens when dirty though :yup:


Looks like 44s front and rear for all trims as well.... unless Iím reading their website wrong.

I believe you are reading this correctly.


Just watched the premier video.. I like it... but that rear door should have been full size... Itís going to look bitchin on 40ís... so then comes the need for axles... and one expensive truck. I give it a [emoji1417]

It is my understanding that the rear doors were not made full to give the body more structure and to resist twisting.


I'm thinking it'll look great towing my JK when I end up on 40's and don't want to put the street miles on my JK

Good luck doing that. A good trailer will weigh about 3500 lbs or more. Moby weighs close to 7000 lbs. You do the math.


Really impressed with what I'm seeing, looks like jeep built a really legitimate truck!!👍

It really is a legit mid-size truck.


So awesome! Canít wait to put my order in.

IF we're lucky, we'll be able to place orders by late March... IF


I love the concept. Not a huge fan of the look with 4 doors. Really hoping a 2 door cab is in the works.

Sorry, not gonna happen.


Thatís amazing!!! I canít wait to see how they perform offroad

I'm gonna bet that the lack of break over angles and shallow departure angle will make it tough to wheel on the rocks or at least, with stock to 35" tires. Where it'll shine is out bombing across the desert. :yup:

11-29-2018, 08:09 AM
I gotta say I really really like this! Anyone know what we are looking at price wise?

Nobody is talking about price. Before Sergio died, he assured us that it was going to be expensive. I think it would be safe to assume MORE than a JL.


Big fan, would go for the diesel down the road but these do look pretty bad ass as a Rubicon with lift and tires. Scared of the price though Haha


You should be. :eek: :crazyeyes:


So, whoís gonna be the first here to purchase and mod it out so we can all see the potential? Wonít be me, Mr Hyde is breaking the bank.


We'll be getting one and building it up as parts become available. :yup:


Any info on when it will be available?

More than likely, some time late next year.


Looks awesome and has some interesting features. The tailgate halfway down option is nice for longer items. The under seat storage looks great and would be even cooler if it actually works as a cooler (see what I did there?). The article mentions the grill being different, but it looks the same as the JL to me. Anyone know what they changed?

The honeycomb insert has bigger voids to allow for a greater amount of air to enter the engine.

I don't know about "downfall". I personally think that it'll sell but if you mean in terms of competing with other trucks, it'd be hard for me to think that it could be a number one seller and specifically because of price. While this will be the most capable 4WD truck made, not everyone needs the most capable truck made. Also, for the cost, it'd be hard not to consider a full size truck.

Jeep engineers were asked about a two door & a extended cab by a vendor from Malvern,Pa if they were considering those versions,,,the PR guy who presented the opening confirmed based on demand of the 2dr vs 4dr JK/JL models that they were not considering those options....The 4dr outselling the 2dr models at record pace,,,Personally, I'd love to see atleast an extended version as my first jeep was an 88 comanche pioneer 4x4 with the full bed...there's a youtube video of the conversation during the intial showing of the 3 models on stage...
