2024 Jeep Gladiator: The Upcoming Future Planning


What’s going to happen to 2024 Jeep Gladiator? Whereas Wrangler is said to come with new updates and possibly plug in hybrid system, does it mean that Gladiator will also get the same treatment? And even with the same treatment, will Gladiator be able to achieve satisfying performance like its cousin, the Wrangler and even Grand Cherokee?

Gladiator vs Wrangler

Wrangler may only be in the market for several years, but Jeep has been dedicated enough to do some changes with their Wrangler JL-series. In fact, the company is pretty busy with this variant. The Wrangler has got some refresh work for their 2021 model, including work in the tech department and more options in the line, the inclusion of V8 unit with its 392 hp, the Willys Xtreme Recon tires, and also the plug in hybrid 4xe unit. Sounds like all the good work has been done to the Wrangler, right? So, does it mean that there is nothing left for Gladiator?

It turns out that there are also some Gladiator buyers who wish that they can get the 4xe powertrain, just like the one offered to the Wrangler. They wish that they can get the 4xe unit for Gladiator this year or next year, but it seems that their wishes won’t come true. According to some resources to Mopar Insiders for the inside of Stellantis, there won’t be any plug in hybrid Gladiator, unless for the 2024 Jeep Gladiator. Well, at least for the American auto market, the model (and the technology) would be available in the 2024 model – and not earlier.

Powertrain and Performance

It seems that Jeep prioritizes Wrangler first, including its mid-cycle update for the anticipated 2023 model. After the Wrangler (around a year after), the Gladiator would get its turn. The vehicle will get a light makeover. It’s possible that the changes will adopt the same thing done to Wrangler, including the PHEV drivetrain, which is also used in Wrangler and also the Grand Cherokee 2022 model.

If this is the case, then it is possible that it would be running on four cylinder turbocharged unit with 2.0 liter capacity, paired with two electric motors that are powered by 17 kWh battery pack. The arrangement can generate around 375 hp and 470 Nm of torque. But don’t set it on the stone just yet, because it’s possible that those figures will change later, especially after the refresh work.

Wrangler 4xe records EPA rates at around 49 Miles per Gallon equivalent (or MPGe), which is considered one of the best rates for Wrangler. It is able to cover 21 miles in pure electric power. Jeep wants its Grand Cherokee to outdo the Wrangler, able to make 57 MPGe. It’s highly likely possible because Grand Cherokee is said to have better aerodynamics (which means friendlier system) than the boxy Wrangler. So, where does it leave Gladiator? The problem is: Gladiator is heavier than the Wrangler – up to 500 pounds heavier. When it comes to wind resistance, it’s simply dismissive. Unless Jeep is doing something about it, don’t be too surprised if the EPA figures for Gladiator won’t be as satisfying as its SUV cousin and brother.

Availability and Launch

The electric ride would be available in Australia in 2022, the second half of the year. It would be coming as Grand Cherokee 4xe. For European market, Jeep has already presented Compass and Renegade 4xe, and they have Grand Commander-e for Chinese market. They are going to produce 4xe Grand Wagoneer SUV and the Wagoneer, although it’s not clear for which market they are going to make one. So, if you want to learn more about 2024 Jeep Gladiator, you should wait for further official confirmation from Jeep.
