Updated 2024 Jeep Gladiator Packs More, Costs More

Similar to the Wrangler, the Jeep Gladiator is updated and improved for 2024. Both offer more content to shoppers and are more sophisticated than ever, which naturally means prices are up across the line.

Arriving in dealerships this month, the 2024 Gladiator is available in six trim levels including Sport S, Willys, Mojave, Mojave X (new), Rubicon and Rubicon X (new). The Overland and High Altitude models have been eliminated.

Here’s how they all stack up in terms of pricing (MSRP). Some represent a hike of around $3,000 versus the 2023 models, but the Rubicon is now about $6,500 more expensive:

  • Sport S - $55,945
  • Willys - $61,445
  • Mojave - $67,945
  • Mojave X - $78,940
  • Rubicon - $67,945
  • Rubicon X - $78,940

The 2024 Jeep Gladiator now comes standard with a 12.3-inch touchscreen featuring Uconnect 5 infotainment—way more advanced and five times faster than the previous system—as well as side curtain airbags for the first and second rows.

The cabin boasts increased levels of comfort and refinement, particularly in the X versions of the Gladiator Mojave and Rubicon, which add 12-way power adjustable front seats, Nappa leather surfaces, navigation, a nine-speaker premium Alpine audio, ParkSense rear park assist and more. These models also feature a steel front bumper, integrated front off-road camera, body-colour fender flares and a full-time transfer case.

When it comes to performance, the 2024 Gladiator expands availability of Off-Road+ mode from Mojave and Rubicon models to the Willys model, enhancing capability both at low and high speeds. It also offers Jeep Adventure Guides, first introduced on the 2024 Wrangler and developed with Trails OffRoad. At the name implies, these are comprehensive off-road trail guides for the 68 Jeep Badge of Honor trails across North America, loaded right into the Uconnect 5 system, with an upgradable subscription that unlocks more than 3,000 trail guides.

As for the 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 under the hood, it continues to deliver 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. It can still be paired with a standard six-speed manual transmission or an available eight-speed automatic transmission. Along with the Toyota Tacoma, the Gladiator is the only midsize truck to keep offering a manual gearbox. It can tow up to 7,700 lbs, most among 4x4 models, and has a best-in-class payload of up to 1,725 lbs. 

The 3.0-litre EcoDiesel V6, as previously reported, is no longer part of the lineup.
