We’ve got some positive Jeep news for you today, as a recent sighting of the 2024 Gladiator pickup truck had the vehicle completely naked for all to see. Since Jeep recently unveiled the refreshed Wrangler not too long ago, and the Gladiator shares a lot of its styling, it’s not surprising that the brand didn’t even put forth the effort to cover it up. Most people have a decent idea of what to expect from the midsize truck in terms of design.
2024 Jeep Gladiator Refresh: What To Expect
A Motor1 spy photographer spotted the updated silver Jeep Gladiator in a parking lot, which gave them plenty of time to snap some great photos. At the front, it’s clear that the updated grille has been implemented into the truck, which is entirely black along with the surrounding areas, which adds contrast to the silver color. There are also some minor changes to the front bumper, most notably the body lines located in the center. Additionally, the turn signal lenses are different from what was seen previously, and at the back, the taillights appear to be redesigned.
While the exterior is completely exposed, the interior is a different story. Since no one was around to run the photographer off, some excellent close-up images were taken of the inside, revealing covers over the entire dash and the driver’s seat. This helps confirm that this is a pre-production model. Despite the extensive coverings, it’s clear that the Jeep Gladiator will be receiving a more prominent center touchscreen. Comparing it to the 2024 Wrangler, which debuted a 12.3-inch landscape screen, it’s possible that’s coming to the Gladiator as the dash had to be redesigned to fit the larger screen, and with the entire thing covered, it’s clear it too has been redesigned.
Since the 2024 Jeep Wrangler is already official, and this Gladiator was caught in public without any exterior camouflage, we could see an official debut sometime later this year, possibly even towards the end of the summer. When that happens, expect the debut of a Gladiator 4xe plug-in hybrid pickup truck, a 35-inch tire package like the Rubicon X Package, and (if we’re lucky) a Rubicon 392 packing a 6.4L Hemi V8.
