Seemingly inseparable from rocky trails and outdoor adventure, the Jeep brand has been the undying staple of the off-road segment for eight decades now. In order to celebrate nearly a century of the seven bar grille, FCA has rolled out a host of new anniversary edition models. Despite being the newest edition to the lineup, the 2021 Jeep Gladiator 80th Anniversary Edition package joins the celebration.
The 2021 Jeep Gladiator 80th Anniversary Edition is based on the mid-level Sport S model, and can be had with either the 3.6L Pentastar V6 or the new-for-2021 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine. The package brings some exterior upgrades such as 80th Anniversary fender badges, neutral grey metallic grille bezels, headlamp rings, and fog lamp bezels, gray/black Trail Rated and Jeep badges, as well as 18-inch Granite Crystal aluminum wheels wrapped in Bridgestone Dueler BSW All-Terrain tires.
The Jeep Gladiator 80th Anniversary Edition also features a number of interior upgrades over the standard model. A set of diamond-embossed cloth seats are offset with Light Tungsten accent stitching, complete with an 80th Anniversary tag up front. There’s also an 80th Anniversary badge on the center console, as well as an 8.4-Inch Uconnect infotainment screen. Both the Premium Audio Group and the Technology Group are included with the Anniversary Edition. Other tweaks include an Anodized Gunmetal dash mid bolster and upgraded Berber floor mats.
The Jeep Gladiator 80th Anniversary Edition will be available in seven colors: Bright White, Granite Crystal, Black, Hydro Blue, Snazzberry, Firecracker Red, and Sarge (late-availability). Bright White is the only cost-free paint option, with the rest requiring an additional $245.
The configurator for the special edition pickup is now live on FCA’s website, with the vehicle carrying an MSRP of $41,740 before taxes and other fees. There are a number of optional extras buyers can still fit to their truck, such as the Trailer Tow Package or some Mopar Rock Sliders. Ordering is officially open as a result, and prospective buyers can contact their local dealers for purchasing information.
