Few rumors have been buzzing around the 2023 Jeep Gladiator, so perhaps it’s not surprising that few things have changed—though one new package may be interesting to buyers who really need the pickup’s off-road capabilities.
The new “Capability Package” for the High Altitude model has a winch-capable steel front bumper, steel rock rails, and a front off-road camera. Those who have not used a vehicle off-road may not realize how handy an off-road camera can be when cresting an unfamiliar hill—or, really, a familiar one, when the only view through the windshield is that of the sky.
The Willys comes with keyless entry, 7-inch instrument cluster screen, remote start, and garage door opener. A new High Velocity color—think lime green—replaces Snazzberry, as announced in early August. Finally, Gladiator will have an American-flag decal at each front fender, at least when sold in the United States.
The last addition is the Freedom Special Edition, with Oscar Mike badges on the rear tailgate, LED headlamps and LED fog lamps, body-color fender flares, winch-capable steel front and rear bumpers, steel rock rails, black wheels and accents, American flag decals, and leather-trimmed cloth seats with black accent stitching.
