2020 Jeep Gladiator

Australian Jeep fans will have the opportunity to own a piece of Jeep history with the exclusive release of the Jeep Gladiator Launch Edition, arriving in Australia this May.

True to Jeep’s rich heritage of tough, dependable trucks with an unmatched combination of rugged utility and authentic Jeep design, Australia’s first-ever Jeep truck, the Jeep Gladiator Launch Edition, is available for order now, priced at $86,450 MSRP.

“Australia is the first right hand drive market to receive the Gladiator, which is a one of a kind lifestyle truck offering an open air experience,” said Guillaume Drelon, Director, Brand & Product Strategy.

“For the first time in Australia, adventurers can experience the heritage and dependability of a Jeep truck. The first Jeep truck, the Willy Overland, was built in 1947, but the Jeep trucks were never made available in Australia, until now with this special Launch Edition Gladiator,” Mr Drelon said.
