The next-generation 2024 Jeep Gladiator will be released next year, and we can expect it to get some tweaks. As far as we know, the new model will be way more capable off-road truck, providing the highest possible level of comfort.
The appearance is likely going to get a mid-cycle refresh, and there should be some small mechanical upgrades as well. It is all being done with the goal of making the off-roading experience better. The available powertrain configurations might undergo some revisions. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s take a peek at what the updated Gladiator would seem to be like.
2024 Jeep Gladiator Will Get a Slight Facelift
The forthcoming 2024 Jeep Gladiator will look way better than the outgoing one. First of all, the refreshed bumpers give it an aggressive appearance, and they are quite noticeable. They are equipped with both a hook and a winch. The Jeep’s front fascia will also look way better than the outgoing one. First of all, the refreshed bumpers give it an aggressive appearance, and they are quite noticeable. They are equipped with both a hook and a winch. The Jeep front fascia will also be revised, and it will consist of vertical lines and air intakes. Anyway, the headlights are still set up in a circle, which makes this truck very easy to spot.
Choosing the base model, you’ll receive a set of robust all-terrain tires wrapped around a set of lightweight wheel rims measuring 19 inches. As we said, this truck is one of the best off-roaders, featuring ground clearance of more than 9 inches. Thanks to that, the manufacturer ensures that nothing may get wedged beneath the truck.
Alterations Made to the Jeep Gladiator’s Interior
We anticipate that the inside of the 2024 Jeep Gladiator will get some small upgrades. To make the rough journeys more bearable and comfortable, Jeep added more comfortable seats. Also, the interior is refreshed with a new audio system and a dashboard that’s entirely digital.
The infotainment system remains 12 inches in size but has a crisper resolution. The Gladiator also includes removable components, much like the Wrangler. Thanks to that, it is allowing passengers to be closer to nature. There are also half-doors, which provide superior off-road visibility than their normal counterparts.
Off-roading prowess is a given for the 2024 Jeep Gladiator, thanks to a powerful PHEV system. The engine produces an amazing output of 375 and a torque of 470 lb-ft. In general, the additional torque is particularly useful in off-road situations. According to Jeep, the PHEV model is capable of driving the Gladiator for around 40 kilometers without using any petrol at all. It might be useful in situations when there is no petrol station in the immediate area.
Unfortunately, there has been no complete conversion to electric power as of yet. It is possible that the future generation may require a new platform in order to fit all of the components of the electric powertrain. The current Jeep Gladiator is also available as standard with the tried-and-true 3.6-liter V6 engine. This model churns out 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. It is paired with an automated gearbox that has eight different gear ratios. Additionally, you can also get a 3.0-liter diesel V6 engine that has 260 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque.
Because of its relatively compact size, the Jeep Gladiator delivers acceptable fuel economy. Manual transmission models get 16 miles per gallon in the city and 23 miles per gallon on the highway. However, if you go for automated ones, you can count on getting 16–22 miles per gallon. The diesel is still the most efficient, with 22 mpg for city travel and 28 mpg for highway driving. There is a possibility that these stats may improve when the new truck arrives.
Pricing and Availability for the 2024 Jeep Gladiator
The arrival of the new 2024 Jeep Gladiator is anticipated to take place sometime around the summer of 2023. We can only hope that problems with the supply chain or COVID-19 will not prevent this from happening. The total cost of the vehicle will depend on which trim and package is chosen.
It is anticipated that the Willys Sport will cost $41,000, Sport S $42,000, Altitude $44,000, and the Willys will cost $45,000. The Texas Trail model should start at $45,000, Overland $46,000, and the Rubicon at around $50,000. The Mojave model and the High-Altitude models cost the same $55,000.
