The Desert Rated Gladiator Mojave's configurator is now live.
If you've been eagerly waiting for the all-new Jeep Gladiator Mojave to drop, we've got some good news: Jeep just updated its online Build & Price tool for the off-roading pickup, opening things up for the new "Desert Rated" Mojave trim.
As expected, the Gladiator Mojave shares a $43,875 starting price with the Gladiator Rubicon, making it an adventure vehicle bargain with its standard 2.5-inch Fox shocks, expanded track-width, upgraded axles, and frame reinforcements. All things considered, it's almost more of a Ford F-150 Raptor-fighter than Chevrolet's rowdy Colorado ZR2.
Other standard equipment includes FCA's 3.6L Pentastar V6, a six-speed manual transmission, and 33-inch all-terrain tires. More aggressive mud-terrain tires are available as a no-cost option, although if you want an eight-speed automatic transmission, it'll cost $2,000.
There are plenty of interesting things to note about the 2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave's multitude of options. It's one of what we're sure are very few vehicles that can be ordered with an intake snorkel from the factory ($695), for one thing, and there are no fewer than six different top options. Load up the Gladiator Mojave as far as it'll go and you're looking at a $67,195 price tag, including destination.
That price includes premium paint ($245), body-color fender flares ($595), and every single package available, including a premium LED lighting package ($1,195), active safety package ($895), adaptive cruise ($795), and cold weather package ($995). Leather and a premium audio package with connected SiriusXM services rank among the priciest options, at $1,595 and $1,845, respectively.
The Jeep Gladiator Mojave is the first of the Desert Rated models to come out of FCA's adventurous Jeep brand, but it won't be the last. Next to get the Mojave treatment - 33-inch all-terrain tires, uprated Dana 44 axles, and all - could be the iconic Wrangler, and still additional Desert Rated Jeeps are expected to follow.
