The new 2023 Jeep Gladiator will receive some upgrades next year, featuring more standard equipment. This midsize pickup truck stands out compared to most competitors because of its distinct Jeep aesthetic. In general, it’s based on the famous Jeep Wrangler, and it comes with standard 4-wheel drive and stellar off-road capabilities. Besides the rugged exterior, the forthcoming model is an excellent daily commute thanks to a roomy and comfortable cabin with a standard 4-door configuration.
Since the Jeep Gladiator was introduced last year, we expect minimal changes under the hood for the 2023 model. We expect the same standard V6, optional turbodiesel V6, a 6.4-liter V8, and a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
2023 Jeep Gladiator Redesign
In this department, we don’t expect some radical changes to the new 2023 Jeep Gladiator. Of course, the manufacturer will make some changes here and there to keep this model updated. As far as we know, the Jeep Wrangler’s based truck will continue to wear the same Jeep 7-slot grille, foldable windshield, and removable doors.
The base Sport trim is offering more than you can imagine. This model features steel wheels, a body-colored grille, and cargo bed lighting. On top of that, a soft top is standard, while 3-piece body-colored hardtop is optionnal. The Mojave and Rubicon models are the most favorite, and both come with larger fender flares, housing bigger all-terrain tires.
Cabin With More Larger Infotainment Screen
On the inside, the 2023 Jeep Gladiator will look more modern, featuring many standard and optional features. It will also keep the same spacious interior that offers enough room for five passengers. Buyers can also expect an upgraded infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
The first generation model comes with a 7-inch unit, so the new one should introduce at least 10 inches. Besides, we also expect it to bundles features like 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth Streaming Audio, Voice Command, Hands-Free Calling, and turn-by-turn navigation. The Gladiator is also available with a handful of driver-assistance technology. The Rubicon model has the most valuable things, including a front-facing camera that comes in handy when blazing trails or crawling over rocks.
2023 Jeep Gladiator Powertrain Specs
There are no words regarding the engines of the upcoming 2023 Jeep Gladiator. The second-generation model will probably use standard V6, optional 3.0-liter EcoDiesel with 260 hp and 442 lb-ft of twist, and standard 4-wheel.
That means the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 gas engine with 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque will power the base model. However, many believe it will also gain a 6.4-liter V8 and a plug-in hybrid similar to the Jeep Wrangler.
Price and Release Date
We expect the cost of the upcoming 2023 Jeep Gladiator pickup to start at mid-$30,000 and get up into the low-$50,000 range. The sec-gen model will bring some changes, mostly inside. It will gain upgraded safety and infotainment technologies. We also expect it to arrive with new engines, on which one should be taken from the Jeep Wrangler 4xe model.
This one uses a 2.0 liter I4 DOHC direct-injection Turbo PHEV engine that provides 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. However, with this engine, the new Jeep Gladiator will cost significantly more than 50k.
