What will you pay for jeep truck?

What do you expect to pay for a basic Nukizer or gladiator 4X4 concept trucks with 3.6 gas engine and single seat for driver and two passengers? Add options you may want. Note: I don't think they're a big market for a single seat truck.

I'd expect prices to be fairly close to the Wrangler, what with a Jeep truck ideally being a Wrangler with a frame stretch and a pickup bed.

Assuming we're talking the Gladiator (Or similar here, one that uses a JK front clip), I'd expect pricing to be as such:

Sport: ~$24,000
Sahara: ~$26,000
Rubicon: ~$30,000

Prices a bit lower then the Wrangler, since they'll save money on the fact that a tub is a lot cheaper to build then all the stuff that's in the back of a Wrangler, but not too low since you have to consider the extra tooling required.

Im guessing there gonna sell for close to what a Unlimited 4 door costs which i think is fair, but like the previous post said it would be cheaper to build than the 4 door

If theres a chance for a diesel or a V-8 down the road then I wouldnt give anything for a V-6 model. Id rather hold out.

That is the reasonable MSRP but you know the Stealerships will just throw accessories on em and raise the prices oh $6 or $7K. I mean look at the Camaro for instance. MSRP fully loaded 2SS is like $34 and you can't even touch a 2SS for anything less than $38-$40K.

I' thinking that the Nukizer will be in between the Dakota and the Ram in price; just a wild shot in the dark. I think that the JK truck will be close in price with the four-door Wrangler.

IMO for a Jeep truck i think the drive train should be:

I-4 turbo diesel or V-8 Gas, 4spd auto or 6spd manual, 3.73 or 4.10 gears

those are the options available in any configuration you so chose to have from the a fuel sipping Diesel, 4spd auto, and 3.73's to the brutal sport V-8, 6spd manual and 4.10's . . .

that way you can configure the truck to suit your need work hors race car some thing in between

Your either going to work it or Lift it up & off road it no need for 3.21's or 3.55 gears 3.73/4.10 is where you'll end up anyways may as well start there

The 3.6 as a standard plant for all models with the diesel and v-8 as standalone options would be the way to go. Just having a V-8 and diesel would price it out of range for a lot of people.

Around 20k for the Gladiator and I would buy one provided I could come up with the funds. Closer to 30k then probably not until some used ones started showing up. I've been looking for used lately and the prices seem too high. I'm having a hell of a time spending even $10k for anything right now. Just can't bring myself to do it for what I'm getting. The most I've ever spent on a used vehicle is $5k.

Ya i see your point there, But the Diesel & V8 options seem rather fitting as it is a pickup truck after all

Thats exactly what I mean, Mike--a V-8 and diesel as OPTIONS. A V-6 as the standard engine would fit a lot of buyers needs and keep the entry level price down. But if you want more, it should be available and as a standalone option with no unnecessary garbage as part of a package.
