In Europe, the Gladiator is available in the Sport and Overland trim levels, as well as in the exclusive Launch Edition offered during the launch phase. From April, the celebrative 80th Anniversary special-edition model will complete the Gladiator’s European range.
The colour palette includes nine exterior options: Black, Firecracker Red, Billet Silver Metallic Clear Coat, Bright White, Granite Crystal Metallic Clear Coat, Hydro Blue, Sting Grey, Snazzberry and Sarge Green, in combination with a soft top, or either a black or body-colour hardtop. The Sport trim comes with 17-inch wheels, while the Overland, Launch Edition and 80th Anniversary ride on 18-inch wheels.
Finally, the new Jeep Gladiator provides access to the benefits of Jeep Wave, the new loyalty and customer care programme offering Jeep owners exclusive services, including maintenance and roadside assistance. It is marked out by a logo inspired by the traditional greeting of Jeep owners – a raised hand waving, or two or four fingers extended upward from the steering wheel. This gesture of friendship is part of Jeep history, and all ‘Jeepers’ are pleased to uphold this tradition. The main benefits of Jeep Wave include: the first two scheduled vehicle services (within 24 months of the purchase), thanks to the ’EASY CARE‘ two-year maintenance programme, a 24/7 roadside assistance service, a Priority Customer Service provided by a dedicated, multi-lingual Jeep Call Center and privileged entry to brand events and partnerships.
The heritage-inspired centre stack features a clean, sculpted form that complements the horizontal dashboard design and sports a different finish for each trim. More specifically, inside are black or heritage tan cloth seats, as well as optional black or dark saddle leather seats with accent stitching and lumbar support. To increase interior comfort, heated front row and steering wheel are offered upon request. The second row can be folded flat to access cab-back storage and provide a load floor for larger items.
There is also a functional organizer in the storage compartment under the second row, designed to stock screws and bolts of Gladiator’s tops, doors and foldable windshield when driving open-air, and underline how everything onboard the Jeep pickup has been engineered for easy, practical usage
The Gladiator’s cabin features a fourth-generation Uconnect™ system with 7- or 8.4-inch touchscreen and instrument cluster with a 7-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) display, which allows the driver to configure information in more than 100 ways for easier access while driving.
Jeep Gladiator stands out for its all-round functionality and user-friendly features. A front-facing camera, which comes as standard with the Launch Edition (optional on the Sport and Overland trim levels), allows obstructions ahead to be seen easily – on both off-road trails and the daily commute in town. The front-facing camera sits behind the middle slot of the Gladiator’s seven-slot grille and can be operated through the Uconnect display. Fitted for the first time ever on a Jeep model, the front camera adds to the functionality and safety offered by the Gladiator, not only when driving off-road but also on everyday journeys. It also includes a self-cleaning function.
The standard equipment offers a 9-speaker Premium Alpine Audio System including rear subwoofer and a 552W, 12-channel amplifier with optional, portable Bluetooth wireless speaker. Located behind the rear seats, the wireless speaker can be recharged while the Gladiator is driven and has a dust-resistant exterior. It is also waterproof at depths up to 90 cm for up to 30 minutes. It can also be paired to the speaker of another Jeep Gladiator and is capable of charging other devices when connected to its USB port. The wireless speaker – a unique feature in its class – allows customers to take their music with them when reaching their destination, whether their trip ends on the beach, in the city or continues on extreme off-road trails.
The new Gladiator features shift on the fly technology, which allows for shifting between 2WD and 4WD High range at speed up to 72km/h. In normal driving conditions, Selec-Trac operates in two-wheel drive (2WD) and transfers 100 percent of engine torque to the rear axle.
