Update from fellow member @Jake:

I spoke with that dealership. As to be expected it is not a truck that they can sell to anyone. It belongs to FCA, was just sent to them so customers can sit in it and look at it. It does not have any window sticker with a price, options listed and with EPA expected gas mileage listed. After a while it will go back to FCA.

is that the first gladiator in Hawaii, or the first gladiator that we saw roll off the assembly line, is also in Hawaii?

It might be, but FCA could be making their rounds with some of them to get them to realize the importance of the truck. I think it’s gonna end up being a high volume selling pickup, and I think Jeep knows that from the stir around it.

Ok. Me again. So they spent the money to train in Hawaii, but can't afford a press conference to release price? Lol.. I'll get off my soap box now after this public service announcement:

Dealers need to know the truck exist and be trained to talk about it before they release the price to the public.

Well this is interesting especially since this dealership does not show this truck to be in inventory on their website.

They probably can’t, yet anyway. There’s no pricing available. You can’t sell something without a price!

Also, you can’t get a car from Toledo to Hawaii so fast...

That has to be one of the original 80 or so that are already “sold” internally. Probably not meant for a customer, already allocated to some big wig...

Rumor, speculation and hearsay!

Well that was easy! LoL I wonder if we can just call FCA for a price!
Good work detective!

Tho, Now I'm wondering... are dealers on the mainland getting trucks just for customers to sit in and look at!?
