2024 Jeep Gladiator: What We Know So Far
2024 Jeep Gladiator – Jeep confirmed earlier this year that there would be an electrified version of the Gladiator truck. Jeep didn’t provide a timeline for the plug-in hybrid, though the company has ambitious plans to offer an electrified option across its portfolio, including the pickup. We don’t know when it will debut. However, it might not be anytime soon. A new Mopar Insiders report says the Gladiator 4xe won’t arrive until the 2024 model year.
2024 Jeep Gladiator Engine and Transmission
The current 4xe powertrain pairs two electric motors to a turbocharged four-cylinder and the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic gearbox, delivering 375 horsepower (280 kilowatts) and 470 pound-feet (637 Newton-meters) of torque. Jeep could tweak the powertrain for the refresh, extracting more power and efficiency from the setup, though we will have to wait for the debut to see if that happens. It’s also unclear what design changes the Wrangler will receive, though it does have the new Bronco to compete against today.
Jeep had initially denied that it was developing an electrified Gladiator, though that didn’t stay the case for long. In June, it appeared Jeep low-key teased the electric Gladiator, with eagled-eye enthusiasts picking out numerous minor details that suggested the model was the electrified Jeep truck. It seemed as if such a model could be right around the corner, though the latest report paints a different picture – and it looks like we could be waiting more than a year for the hybrid truck to debut.
2024 Jeep Gladiator Price Starting at $39,680
As mentioned above, we still have quite a while to wait until the electrified Gladiator comes out. Jeep didn’t provide us with an estimated release date, though it’s pretty sure that it won’t debut until after the next Wrangler. Likely, the new Gladiator will be out in mid-to-late 2023 or early 2024.
Since it will be at least in part electric, it’s reasonable to expect that the price range will be increased from the current Gladiator’s MSRP of $39,680. As an electrified pickup, the 2024 Gladiator will likely face off against competition like the Chevy Silverado EV, Ford F-150 Lightning, Toyota Tundra Hybrid, and Rivian R1T.
