For 2023, the Jeep Gladiator has received another price increase, along with a series of minor changes.
Jeep hiked prices of the Night Eagle and Rubicon from July 1 last year to $73,450 and $82,450 before on-roads, or a circa-$3000 increase for both.
For 2023, prices are up again to $78,250 and $87,250 before on-roads – an increase of $4800.
There have also been some detail changes made to both the Night Eagle and Rubicon.
The Night Eagle’s steering wheel is now wrapped in leatherette instead of leather, while its 650 Amp battery has been swapped for a 700 Amp one.
On the Rubicon, the Fox shocks are replaced with Tenneco items and 17-inch machined black wheels replace polished black ones.
The Gladiator Rubicon also loses the option of a Black/Dark Saddle interior.
The front axle disconnect is no longer available, though it still features front and rear electronically locking differentials plus a sway bar disconnect. Jeep also notes fuel economy is unchanged.
