Saw pictures of Jeep Gladiator concept. What are the chances they build this one especially with a diesel? I think it is just a tease.

Fans of this vehicle have to let Jeep know that they will buy it if they build it. There is no other vehicle on the North American market that fills this product void. Over 2 years ago I asked Jeep to build this vehicle for people with the following needs- #1 A heavy duty Wrangler/Scrambler type vehicle with a diesel and true pick-up cargo room. #2 A durable interior/exterior for construction/forestry type use. #3 An affordable price point.
To date the only offerings in the traditional pick-up category are not sufficient for this type of use. Consider the overall weight and size of today's full size pick-ups. Their opulent interiors reminiscent of luxury sedans, thirsty engines, and expensive price tags. These vehicles are more highway hauler than bush buster.
Thank-you Jeep and congratulations on having the first vehicle to fill this market gap. Please build it and satisfy all those out there who have needed a vehicle like this for a long time.

I second , third and fourth that!!!! Jeep has offered the CJ/YJ in pick up and extended versions in other parts of the world and with diesel engines for decades. We have always been left out. I know I am in a minority when I say but Jeep needs to get back to its roots with the wrangler and its off shoots... The first thing to come out of mine was the carpet and the cloth seats... I have to have hose able interior. I can't wait for the Gladiator... I hope they even keep the name... everyone remember the 60's full size Gladiator pick ups?
I hope the diesel makes it... and with the 6 speed manual tranny!
Is Jeep able to build a "Jeep"?

Amen! Build something with the same goals as were used in creating the humvee (reliable,repairable,powerful) but in a smaller package (jeep size or maybe a smidge bigger).
Or, I could just go out and buy the American Expedition Vehicles Jeep BRUTE with the hemi upgrade. If you haven't seen it...its insane.

I drive a VW Jetta TDI myself and have been looking at the Jeep Wrangler for a while now to supplement my needs for a rugged off road vehicle, and now with the advent of the turbo diesel powered Jeep Gladiator I'll look no further. Plus I'm very excited about the growing popularity in the use of bio-diesel as being a cleaner renewable source of fuel.
