New Jeep JT Gladiator has arrived!
Yesterday, my son and I attended the Dallas Auto Show, something we have done together for over 20 years. Each year we walk into the Dallas Convention Center without a preset agenda and just look for the most impressive car at the show. Of course there are car that cost more than my first house (times five) and there are econo-boxes that must appeal to someone, but not us. We thoroughly enjoy sitting in drivers seats, passenger seats, back seats, open truck and hoods (as allowed). Each year we decide as we are walking out, what our favorite vehicle at the show was. Generally, we agree but occasionally we are wildly apart in our likes and dislikes.
Last year it was all about the new Jeep Wrangler JL, which you could view but not touch. This year, it was all about the new Jeep JT Gladiator, again beautiful vehicle but no ability to touch. Luckily it was equipped nearly the same as our 2018 JL Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon (even the same color – black). I can honestly say that I loved it and I want one.
I have to admit, I have treated the whole Gladiator announcement with a big yawn (up until now). I love my JLUR, but this Gladiator is my new lusted for vehicle. My son said “I have a great idea, why don’t you just give me the JLUR and you go buy the Gladiator”……….which makes perfect sense, were it not for the $$$ I have invested in upgrades and the monthly payment on the Jeep…LOL
However, my mental wheels are spinning, I need to find a justification in the next year to add a second Jeep to the family……
