The 2024 Jeep Gladiator 4xe Is Finally Happening
If you wish that the Jeep Gladiator 4xe would hurry up and get here, then you aren’t alone. There’s no shame in wanting a truck with more power and a better fuel economy. New clues suggest that the 2024 Jeep Gladiator 4xe could be here sooner than you think.
When will the 2024 Jeep Gladiaotr come out?
We could only be a few weeks away from seeing the 2024 Jeep Gladiator 4xe for the first time. The Easter Jeep Safari is a 9-day event taking place from April 1st until the 9th. It’s the perfect time to present new concepts and models to the public for testing.
The event primarily consists of trial rides, some of which can last the entire day. If that doesn’t excite Jeepers enough, we have a few teaser images about what to expect. For example, an image of what could be the Jeep Gladiator 4xe has our motors running.
According to AutoBlog, one of the images seems to be the Glaidaor Rubicon. You can see the vertical rear window and the start of the truck bed. It’s equipped with tube doors, and the Jeep badges are outlined in light blue.
Light blue is the color used to differentiate 4xe models from their regular gas-powered counterparts. Also, this is the first Gladiator 4xe clue to go on in a long time. It was already delayed once, so we hope things stay on track this time.
How much power could the Gladiator 4xe have?
The 2024 Jeep Gladiator 4xe could borrow the same powertrain from the Jeep Wrangler 4xe. It uses a 2.0-liter turbo inline-four engine, two electric motors, and a 17-kWh battery to deliver 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. This would be an exciting
It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about 6.0 seconds, and it’s the most potent Wrangler aside from the Rubicon 392. However, it can only tow up to 3,500 lbs. The gas-powered Gladiator can tow up to 7,700 lbs.
We don’t see the 4xe being that much weaker than the gas-powered model, so perhaps it will have a more robust hybrid setup. Plus, the Gladiator is larger and heavier than the Wrangler. Rumors also suggest that the Jeep Grand Wagoneer 4xe could be on the way.
Perhaps there’s a hybrid variant of the new Hurricane engine. The 3.0-liter inline-six engine cranks out 500 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque.
Currently, the Gladiator has a standard 3.6-liter V6 engine with 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. The optional 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine provides 260 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque.
How much range will the Gladiator 4xe have?
The official fuel economy figures for the 2024 Jeep Gladiator 4xe haven’t been released. But the Jeep Wrangler 4xe gets an EPA-estimated electric range of 21 miles on a single charge. It gets about 49 MPGe and can travel up to 370 miles on a single tank.
We would like for the Gladiator 4xe to have a little more range. The gas-powered model gets an EPA-estimated 17 mpg in the city and up to 22 mpg on the highway. Upgrading to the diesel engine provides up to 22 mpg in the city and up to 28 mpg on the highway.
With a Level II charger, it takes about two hours to charge. With a level 1 charger, it can take up to 12 hours. The Wrangler 4xe comes with a standard level 1 charging cable.
The Easter Jeep Sagari is almost here, so we might know more about the potential 2024 Jeep Gladiator 4xe soon. Check back for the latest updates.
