Jeep announced today that its Gladiator, which is due in dealerships later this year, will have a starting price tag of $35,040. It has a higher starting price tag compared to its rivals but the Gladiator more than makes up for it in terms of technology and fuel efficiency.

Standard to all variants is a V-6 engine and four-wheel-drive setup. The Sport S trim received a few more goodies than the base model. It goes on sale for $38,240.

Move one level up and you’ll find the Overland model, which is priced at $41,890. For that price tag, you’ll get power door locks, two-piece fender flares with body color insert, auto headlamps, side steps, upgraded tires, and other features.

The Rubicon models are the most expensive at $45,040 but that has beefy 33-inch tires, upgraded cloth seats, and a Rock-Trac 4×4 system with heavy-duty axles and locking differentials.

The Gladiator comes with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine that can make a whopping 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Jeep also released the latest EPA ratings for the Gladiator. When paired with the standard six-speed manual, the 2020 Gladiator has an EPA rating of 16/23/19 mpg city/highway/combined. Paired with the eight-speed automatic, it has a slightly more edge than the other units; it gets 17/22/19.

Thankfully, though the Gladiator is priced higher than most of its segments, its fuel economy numbers can beat their rivals. The 2019 Toyota Tacoma gets an 18/22/20 mpg rating when partnered with a V-6 engine, four-wheel drive, and an automatic transmission. The Chevrolet Colorado gets 17/24/19 mpg in V-6 automatic and 4WD trim.

The 2019 Ford Ranger will only be made available with a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder. Its fuel economy is higher at 20/24/22 mpg with four-wheel drive and a 10-speed automatic.

Next year, the Gladiator is expected to carry a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine that can make 260 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque.
