Jeep owns the SUV Market and now their going to take the mid size market. November was good to FCA, with Ram outselling the Chevy Silverado, Challenger jumping into the #1 place in muscle-car sales, and Jeep holding the lead for the best-selling SUV brand.
Way to highlight their quality product. lol
As I have stated before, this will be a yuppie urbanite vehicle, nothing special. "It will sell some units but it will not be a vehicle suited for work, just play." Posted by: oxi | Dec 9, 2018 7:06:05 AM Just like the current Tacoma. Only more capable off road.
Ford is a pavement pounder gas miser. Programmed as such, gear selection etc... Jeep is for off roading, active life style. Solid front axle, lockers front & rear, Sway bar disconnect, front bumper thats winch ready. With a front winshield thats drops so you can hunt on a ranch and haul your prize buck home in the bed. ZR2 is more of a competitor but falls short with its ifs front suspention. The Jeep will be the off road king the rest are wannabees. lol
Add some Jeep bed boxes for your Rifles and poles. Perfect ranch hunting vehicle. Angler rig to the beach or Ranch pond,river.
This model is nothing more than a cafe credit to sell the big 6.2 V8. The government has regulated mpg on 1500's no one that actually uses a truck to work and tow will buy this model. Kind of like a full size Tacoma. You get utility but not much truck substance.
Nobody has the off road world more covered than Chrysler with legendary brands from Ram and Jeep both 4x4 pioneers. This new Gladiator pick up will have a solid front axle, lockers, and all the different traction control and off road software modes to back it up. Compared to a Bison or Ranger it will be a superior choice for off roaders. After market is already in place for any and all upgrades. AEV for a Hemi install, rims, lift, ect...
This is a perfect fit for chrysler to gain some small truck sales. Jeep is a very popular brand and will be a very good competitor to the Bison ZR2, Canyon and Colorado from G.M. Good looking rugged and useful. Needs a Hemi from AEV.
@ Clint Did u not see the performance facts. The Silverado 6.2L destroyed your eco bust. And the HP/TQ was 40+ more. Keep watching your fors commercials man.

Congrats to FCA their hard work has paid off again. No doubt their products are top of the line. Class of their own. Once again leaving the competition playing catchup to all their high tech options.
@ Ooops, guess they new they had no chance with their already outdated products. lol
@ Tacoma2011, Obviously you don't tow. I haven't seen any Tacoma with a trailer. lol Does the Tacoma have power windows yet?
My first car in high school was a truck. 1986 Hardbody single cab short bed white with a Z24 engine with two plugs per cylinder. Kenwood pull out and a 15" bass speeker 100 watt amp. I used it to haul my Honda CR 125 out to the trails.
But the Ford luvin putc still keeps posting the ranger specs and hyperboil. lol Why no jeep? Jeep is a 1/4 ton truck with a body on frame. Guess because its NOT a Ford. lol
Tapping out! No more under-powered Bison articles, please. Posted by: redbloodedxy | Oct 18, 2018 3:20:17 PM Be awesome if A.E.V offered a V8 swap like the 6.4 5.7 Hemi's for Jeeps.
G.M. is the only co. that has competition in this truck segment. I do however think this is a more rugged off roader than the TRD from Toyota.
@Hemi48--Not that there is anyrhing wrong woth thus truck, but there's a difference between sitting in a truck at the shows, and driving and owning one. Ram is still in 3rd place. Posted by: Jeff | Oct 9, 2018 2:59:14 PM You got that right, Nobody handles towing better than RAM Trucks. Nobody even offers their exclusive features. You can own the rest i own the Best. RAM TUFF TRUCKS!!! Longest lasting trucks on the road.
Four FCA US Vehicles Win Top Honors in 2018 J.D. Power Resale Value Awards, Ram 3500 Heavy Duty awarded with the Highest Resale Value in the industry
More ignorant comments. Shocker. This engine is for c.a.f.e only. 1500's soon will be like a prius. The real trucks are 2500's and above because their not regulated the same as 1500's. This engine is to comply with the government nothing more. Rams are in their own class when it comes to luxury, ride, and towing control. It's a very well engineered truck.
I got a chance to see this longhorn interior at the L.A. Auto show with some friends who like G.M. trucks. We sat in it and soaked it all in. Then we went straight to the top G.M. truck and sat in it. Even my friends were blown away at the level of detail and luxury. I only wish they offered this Longhorn in the original farm truck the Legendary Power Wagon. Ram is in another class so far ahead of Ford and G.M.
If i needed a small truck the ZR2 would be my pic for sure. Awesome little truck.
