You can't root without unlocking the bootloader. Bootloader is a sort of a security lock to prevent any messing about with the firmware.

Even the method in the link requires an unlocked bootloader. You can't root without unlocking the bootloader. Either way of you root you'll lose your warranty.

@azhar.munshi.... It can't be stated more plainly than @rudi_j7 has put it ----YOU CANNOT ROOT OR INSTALL A CUSTOM RECOVERY WITHOUT UNLOCKING THE BOOTLOADER ---- it is no use trying to quote links stating how it is done to Moto G devices because those links don't exist, and what is the point of quoting "Sony" devices when we are dealing with the Motorola Moto G.

DONATE TO ME
Rooting without unlocking the bootloader usually involves an unpatched exploit of some kind. An OTA could make you lose root on a permanent basis, and you may or may not be able to flash kernels, which would be an issue for custom ROMs.

Either way, no such method has been posted for the Moto G yet.
My phones: Galaxy Note II SGH-T889V (with LTE enabled / ext4 SD card support on TouchWiz ROMs), Motorola XT-1045 Moto G LTE (TWRP)
Previous phones: Nexus S GT-I9020A, Galaxy Gio GT-S5660M (Arpeggiomod ROM / Discussion, stock rooted ROM), Motorola XT-1032 Moto G.
Phones for which I play "tech support" for family and friends: Galaxy Nexus GT-I9250, Galaxy Q SGH-T589R, Galaxy 551 GT-I5510M, LG C-800G Eclypse, Motorola XT-1032 Moto G
