TOLEDO (WTOL) - The new Jeep Gladiator won’t hit the market for a few months but when it does many may find its price a little steep.
Comparable trucks like the Toyota Tacoma, Ford Ranger and Nissan Frontier have price tags that are several thousand dollars cheaper.
But it’s the Jeep brand itself that allows Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to bump up the cost of the trucks.
The basic sport version will run you $33,545, the Sport "S" model will start at just under $36,745 and the Overland is set to start at $40,395. Finally, the crown jewel Rubicon model is listed at $43,545.
Those prices, of course, are just where they start -- without any modifications or add-ons.
How much you spend also depends on where you buy the truck.
Yark Automotive Group is one of the dealerships that will soon showcase the Gladiators, and they said they are excited for everyone to finally get a chance to buy one.
“We couldn’t be more excited for it. Just a truly great looking vehicle to be able to customize a truck the way you can with this. It’s gonna completely revamp the market and I think these Jeep enthusiasts are truly gonna be excited once they see these things hitting the street," Yark Automotive Group New Car Sales Manager Jake Mallet said.
Mallett said customers be able to order your Jeep beginning this month, and he said he expects them to finally hit the streets in late May or early June.
