At this time, the Toledo south plant is still only building pre-production examples of the Gladiator. Folks at Jeep don't want to say exactly when the showroom-ready units start rolling off the line, and they are leaving details to the quite vague "first half of 2019."

However, the company's fresh announcement of the Gladiator says that the truck starts rolling into showrooms in the second quarter of 2019. An arrival in the summer gives early adopters a chance to experience their new pickup with the top off.
