The Jeep Gladiator is one of the most popular vehicles the brand offers. There’s a good reason for this: it offers remarkable versatility and performance at a great price. If you’re interested in getting a new Jeep Gladiator, the 2024 model is right around the corner. Read as our team at Huffines Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram (CJDR) in Lewisville, Texas, gives you a preview.
What To Expect With the 2024 Jeep Gladiator
We expect the 2024 Jeep Gladiator to come out later this year. Jeep hasn’t released all the details about the Gladiator yet, but we know a few things and can make educated assumptions about others. Below, we’ll highlight what you can likely expect from the 2024 Jeep Gladiator when it finally releases.
A Powerful Engine
You can expect to find a potent powertrain underneath the 2024 Jeep Gladiator. The 2023 model used a 3.6-liter V-6 engine that produced 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. We expect the same engine to power the 2024 model, along with a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. The 2023 model was also available with a 3.0-liter V-6 diesel engine, which produced 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque, and we expect this option to remain available for the 2024 model as well.
An even bigger change we expect for 2024 is the inclusion of a plug-in hybrid powertrain. Jeep has already upgraded the Wrangler to include this option, making it more likely that the 2024 Jeep Gladiator will also get it. The Wrangler generates 470 lb-ft of torque with the hybrid powertrain, but we expect the Gladiator to come closer to 500 lb-ft. Regardless, the inclusion of the hybrid powertrain will not only give you a powerful setup but also a more fuel-efficient one.
One of the benefits of any Jeep Gladiator — the 2024 model included — is its versatility. You can do a lot with the Jeep Gladiator and easily take it on all sorts of adventures. Unlike the Jeep Wrangler, the Jeep Gladiator has a pickup bed in the rear, giving you more storage space. You can even carry between 1,105 and 1,700 pounds of payload in the truck bed, making the Gladiator useful for long road trips or projects that require heavy materials.
On top of that, you get an impressive towing capacity with the Gladiator, as it can pull up to 7,700 pounds when properly equipped. Even if you select a weaker version of the Gladiator, you’ll still be able to tow up to 4,000 pounds, which is more than the Jeep Wrangler and more than enough to add on a small trailer, giving you added versatility for transporting your belongings.
The Jeep Gladiator also features comfortable rear seating for up to three passengers and the ability to fold the seats for extra storage. You can also easily take your Gladiator off-road thanks to its chassis design and all-wheel-drive setup. All of this combines to give you a vehicle you can use in various situations.
A Comfortable Interior
You should expect the 2024 Jeep Gladiator to have an interior you can relax in. The 2023 model featured comfortable yet durable materials throughout the cabin. And thanks to the stretched wheelbase, passengers will have more rear legroom in the Gladiator than the Jeep Wrangler.
Other features in the 2023 Jeep Wrangler that we expect to carry over to the 2024 model include the following:
- Removable body and roof panels.
- A heated steering wheel.
- Push-button start.
- Heated front seats.
- Several internal storage cubbies.
With all these interior features and more, you should expect the 2024 Jeep Gladiator to keep you and your passengers comfortable whenever you step inside.
The Latest Entertainment and Safety Technology
Each year, the newest Jeep models receive upgrades to the onboard technology. We expect the 2024 Jeep Gladiator to continue this trend, which means the latest entertainment and safety technology. For example, the 2024 Wrangler received a new 12.3-inch center screen, and the Gladiator will likely get this upgrade as well. This touch-screen infotainment system lets you easily access important vehicle settings and connect to your phone with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integrations. The 2024 model will also likely come with the latest Uconnect 5 software for improved accessibility and features.
As for safety features, a few that you’ll likely see in the 2024 Jeep Gladiator include the following:
- Adaptive cruise control.
- Rear parking sensors.
- A front-facing camera.
- Blind-spot monitoring.
- Forward collision warning.
- Automatic high-beam headlamps.
A Perfect Price
Finally, as with all Jeep models, you can expect to pay a great price for your new vehicle. The 2023 Jeep Gladiator had a starting MSRP of $40,785; we expect the 2024 model to be very similar, around $40,500. Several trim levels will also be available, making deciding between desired features and costs easier. Nine configurations of the 2023 Gladiator were available, and the 2024 model will likely have similar options.
When you think of all you’re getting with the Jeep Gladiator — a pickup truck, convertible, and off-road vehicle all wrapped up into one — you’ll see that it’s well worth the price. You can add other features as you see fit, such as a hybrid powertrain or heated seats. Check back again soon to learn the pricing of the upcoming 2024 Jeep Gladiator.
