A Gladiator line-up has not yet been confirmed for Australia but it will likely include entry-level Sport S, mid-range Overland and the top-spec Rubicon.
No details on official pricing were available when we drove the Gladiator but I reckon you can expect to pay from $70,000 for the top-spec Rubicon.
The big news is: Jeep reckons Australia will only get the petrol Gladiator. There will be no diesel. Jeep officials have shrugged off any suggestions by journalists that not offering an oil-burning variant was a serious misstep for the diesel-loving Australian market. Is their decision simply peculiar and perhaps temporary? Let's wait and see.
No Australian specifications or pricing for the Gladiator were made available at this event, but keep an eye on CarsGuide because we'll have those details as soon as they're available.
Standard Wrangler Rubicon features are all here including off-roading gear such as Falken all terrain tyres (but likely BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tyres for Australia), a rock-stomping 77.2:1 crawl ratio, front and rear locking differentials and a swaybar disconnect system.
Other features include cloth seats, 8.4-inch touch-screen multimedia system with sat nav and the cluey 'off-road pages' mode, as well as Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, LED lights, 230V inverter, and 17-inch alloys.
The Rubicon also gets a forward-facing off-road camera to help find your way when taking on low-speed 4WDing.
