As part of union negotiations, Stellantis provided details on when the Wrangler and Gladiator would finally be renewed. The Wrangler has been on a ten-year replacement cycle, though Ford Bronco and the upcoming Volkswagen Scout may eventually challenge that.
The Gladiator is to be updated this year, unsurprisingly, since the 2024 Wrangler has already been unveiled. However, the PHEV versions of both off-road vehicles is being upgraded in calendar-year 2025.
The next generation Jeep Wrangler, coded J70, will launch in calendar year 2028. The Wrangler will have a gasoline version, but also two electric variants—one with all-battery power, and one with batteries and a range extending gasoline engine. The “REPB” version mainly relies on battery power, but when the batteries run out, a gasoline generator kicks in to recharge them. The advantage of this setup, other than simplicity, is that the generator can run at a constant speed where it is most efficient and generates the least pollution.
