2023 Jeep Gladiator
A new Jeep Gladiator is here! Starting at $53,990, the 2023 Jeep Gladiator offers a lot of features, but what is its real value? In this article, we’ll take a look at the specs, comfort options, mechanics and more.
Mechanics and Fuel Economy
The Gladiator 2023 is equipped with a 3.6-liter Pentastar VVT engine with Stop/Start technology. This engine is rated at 285 hp at 6,400 rpm. Fuel consumption of all versions is almost identical, with an average of 10.8 L/100 km in the city and 8.5 L/100 km on the highway, except for the Mojave which has 14.3 L/100 km in the city and 10.4 L/100 km on the highway. The fuel tank capacity is 83 L.
It has, of course, four-wheel drive and a 6-speed manual transmission. As an option, you can get an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The Gladiator 2023 also allows you to carry a lot of stuff. It has a roll-up tonneau cover, and you can get a spray-on bed liner. The cover is adjustable, so you can roll it out completely or flip the end. The cargo bed is 1.5 meters long, and you can tow up to 3,500 kg, which is best in class.
This is all possible thanks to its high-strength steel chassis and heavy-duty axles. It also has the biggest brakes in its class.
As you probably know, the Gladiator is the only open-air pickup truck in the industry. This is because the windshield can be folded down, the doors are removable, and there are open-air top options. As such, interiors need to withstand a lot and offer premium materials.
There are five seats, and the rear seats can be folded in different configurations to haul all kinds of cargo. The front seats are heated, as is the steering wheel. There’s a Lockable Rear Seat Storage, where you can store more cargo.
The driver and the front-seat passenger can each set personalized climate controls with the Automatic Temperature Control system. There’s also an Air Filtration System, minimizing particles entering the cabin.
Safety and Driver Assistance
The 2023 Gladiator offers a Parksense Rear Park-Assist System, which detects obstacles and sounds an alert. It’s paired with a rear camera with a dynamic grid to assist parking.
Aside from that, the Gladiator has many other safety features, such as blind-spot monitoring, forward-collision warning and rear cross-path detection. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System warns if there are changes in tire pressure.
You can also set a preselected distance from the vehicle ahead with the Adaptive Cruise Control. It will automatically speed up and down, and it will stop fully, if necessary.
Many Trims to Choose From
The High Altitude
Key Differences Between 2022 and 2023 Versions
The 2023 Jeep Gladiator doesn’t have many changes over the 2022 version. Some trims have upgrades, such as the proximity keyless entry in the Willys.
But perhaps the most noteworthy differences are the removal of a coating option, Snazzleberry Pearl, and the Altitude trim is no longer available. It was between the Sports S and the Willys trims in the 2022 version.
2023 is a great year for Jeep Gladiator fans, as you will be able to enjoy the many features this new, unique pickup offers. As either a part of your everyday driving or off-road adventures, this pickup was built to perform in the most difficult conditions.
