How would they be worth less? There's a ton of Wranglers on the road and they hold their value in a way most other cars wish they could.the more sold, the less they will be worth. Glad to see them doing well, but as an owner, I feel its losing the "uniqueness". I feel its the only midsize truck out there that isn't "cute". I love it when someone tells me "Gladiators are ugly", I'm like, Thank you!
There is always stragglers like that sold beyond the model year and/or discontinued. Many times it vehicles that were on hold for recall or other pre sale issues that need to be sorted.A new vehicle sold IS a new vehicle sold...even if the vehicle sold was discontinued more than a few model years ago.
It probably means the same thing to some in Louisiana as there are a lot who don't like the term but that is more starting with the Gen X crowd and thereafter. They think a little to highly of themselves. I have no issue with it or being called one.
This was asked a few times at launch of various FCA reps and I seem to recall it was an estimated 1 in 5 Gladiator buyers would be a poached Wrangler JL buyer.I wonder how many Gladiator sales steal from Wrangler sales? I know Jeep lost a new wrangler JL sale from me when I decided to buy a Gladiator.
Makes sense. curious if their estimates were accurate.This was asked a few times at launch of various FCA reps and I seem to recall it was an estimated 1 in 5 Gladiator buyers would be a poached Wrangler JL buyer.
Given the intended higher cost of entry of buying a Gladiator over a Wrangler JL, it limits the fence sitting buyers and tailors toward to a more astute buyer. The family SUV pavement princess buyers that make up a good portion of Wrangler JL sales are less likely to jump ship into a Gladiator.
