According to Jeep, the Gladiator Mojave is the first-ever made desert rated vehicle of the brand Jeep. If you want to drive in the Sahara or in one of the four major deserts: Great Basin, Mohave, Chihuahuan, and Sonoran, then the Jeep Mojave will be the Gladiator helping you to fight these off-road terrains.

This 4×4 2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave 4×4 is ready to take you on any adventure from the Red Rock Canyon to the slippery sands of any desert, or even the Sahara desert in Egypt too.

Mojave is part of the top of the line Jeep Gladiator

The 2020  Jeep Gladiator lineup includes 7 different Gladiator trim models. The trims Mojave and Rubicon and Special North Edition, are the three top models in the Gladiator family. Mojave is my favorite model and pricing is not too bad near 43K for a top of the line Gladiator Jeep.

Meaning of the Mojave Model Besides the Water

The word Mojave has been used in several locations including the Mojave Desert, Mojave Mountains, Mojave Valley, Mojado River, and more. It is believed to mean  “along or beside the water,” It seems to be a composition of two old Indian words. The Indian word Mojave means along/beside and the Indian word Aha means water. Besides meaning, the name Mojave gives a sense of adventure and power.

Jeep Gladiator Trims

Gladiator lineup gives you many choices depending on your budget and needs. The basic Gladiator Sport trim model starts at $33,545, while the top model, the North Edition goes for $45,915. Top models in the lineup Rubicon and Mojave have a good base MSRP price starting at $43,875.  It seems that Jeep wants to have a good low price attractive to all car buyers from low 30’000s up to high 40,000s.

Good pricing and a good unique product, a good strategy to sell a lot of Gladiators, but is not an easy task to create such a strong Jeep for this pricing.
