Alright, y’all, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave configurator is live, and it’s time to get to it.

As Jeep promised, the 2020 Gladiator Mojave shares a $43,875 starting price with the Gladiator Rubicon, and ensures a happy landing with standard 2.5-inch Fox shocks, expanded track-width, upgraded axles, and frame reinforcements. Customers wanted a Jeep Gladiator to better hang with their buddies with Ford Raptors, and they got one. And cheaper, too.

Other standard equipment includes FCA’s 3.6L Pentastar V6 (yes, a shortcoming to the Raptor, but a Hemi swap fixes that), a six-speed manual transmission, and 33-inch all-terrain tires. An eight-speed automatic transmission is an extra $2,000, but more aggressive mud-terrain tires are available as a no-cost option.

As for the options. You can get an intake snorkel from the factory for $695, while a set of optional polished wheels run another $995. If it’s your deep desire to load up the Gladiator Mojave as far as it’ll go, then you’re looking at a $67,195 price tag, including destination. What you get for what is more than C8 Corvette money consists of 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 kicks off the brand’s new “Desert Rated” label, which is specific for having fun in the sand, versus the “Trail Rated” label capped by the rock-crawling Rubicon model. Following the Gladiator Mojave, other Desert Rated Jeeps are reported to be the Wrangler, next-generation Grand Cherokee, and all-new Jeep Wagoneer. As for whether or not an alleged Jeep Wrangler EV would get such a rating remains to be seen.
