The Jeep Gladiator pickup truck is in a class of one. It’s the only midsize truck with a live front axle, the only one with removable doors, and has the highest towing capacity in its class at 7,650 pounds with its Max Tow Package. However, the midsize truck sales aren’t doing great despite the capability and demand for more adventure-ready vehicles. Still, with the help of some discounts, that could change amid constant price hikes and dealer markups for other midsize trucks on the market.
However, this comes at a time when the UAW is on strike at the Jeep Toledo plant, where both the Wrangler and Gladiator are built. So while there are deals, a lack of inbound inventory due to the strike could have dealers up to their old tricks again soon.
2023 Jeep Gladiator Discounts See Deep Price Cuts, For Now
The savings start with Jeep’s manufacturer discount of 10% off MSRP through October 2 for any 2023 Gladiator purchase or lease. Following that, depending on your state, you could see discounts of 15-25% off the MSRP of the Gladiator. That’s not all; the deal can be combined with any other incentive. That means customers could see upwards of $20,000 taken off the overall price of the Jeep Gladiator, which will significantly drop monthly payments for customers, even with the high-interest rates that come with buying a new vehicle. That said, the savings can only be achieved if you are at a dealership that accepts the manufacturer discount.
Looking ahead of the UAW strike, and the restoration of dealer inventory, the 2024 Jeep Gladiator features a more refined interior loaded, with premium features and technology, along with Jeep 4×4 functionality and versatility. It now features 12.3-inch touchscreen at its core, the heritage-inspired center stack features a clean, sculpted form that complements the horizontal dashboard design. As for the outside, the pickup features the iconic seven-slot grille, which now has an updated look with black textured slots, neutral gray metallic bezels, and a body-color surround (gloss black slots and bezels on Willys). Additionally, a new trail-ready stealth antenna integrated into the front windshield replaces the previous steel mast antenna, streamlining the Gladiator’s appearance and eliminating brush or tree limb snags on the trail.
While the Jeep pickup truck isn’t topping the sales charts, we can’t see the Gladiator being canceled in North America just yet, as the brand plans to launch the 4xe for the 2025 model. Given that the Jeep Wrangler 4xe is a best-selling plug-in hybrid SUV, we can expect some significant bumps in sales when the powertrain launches for the midsize truck. That said, if you’ve been watching the Jeep Gladiator and biding your time for the right opportunity, now is undoubtedly the right opportunity before the deals end.
