2024 Jeep Gladiator 4xe Plug-in Hybrid: Review, Range, & Price You are not alone if you want the Jeep Gladiator 4xe to hurry up. It’s not wrong to want a vehicle with better power and fuel efficiency. The 2024 Jeep Gladiator 4xe Plug-in Hybrid may be closer than you might think.

Jeep announced earlier in the year that an electric version of its Gladiator pickup truck would be available. Jeep did not provide an estimated date for the launch of the plug-in, but the company is ambitious in its plans to electrify all vehicles, including pickups. It’s not known when the vehicle will be released.

The publication cited anonymous sources within Stellantis to claim that the electric truck would arrive in 2023 after Jeep updates the Wrangler JL mid-cycle. The redesigned Wrangler is expected to debut next year. Design updates are also being applied to the Gladiator, which will be available in 2024. Facelift includes the hybrid engine from the Wrangler 4xe and the Wrangler Limited.

The current 4xe powertrain combines two electric motors with a turbocharged 4-cylinder and TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission. It delivers 375 horsepower and 470 pounds-feet of torque (637 Newton-meters). Jeep may tweak its powertrain to extract more efficiency and power from it for the refreshed model. We will need to wait until the launch to find out if this happens. The Wrangler’s design will also be a mystery, but it has the Bronco as a competitor today.

Jeep initially denied it was working on an electric Gladiator. However, this didn’t last long. Jeep appeared to have teased an electrified Gladiator in June. A number of minor details were picked up by enthusiasts who suspected that the vehicle was actually the electrified Jeep. The latest reports paint a very different picture. It looks as though we will have to wait more than one year before the electric truck debuts.

The Jeep Gladiator is expected to borrow a similar powertrain as the Jeep Wrangler. The vehicle uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four engine with two electric motors and a battery of 17 kWh to produce 375 horsepower and 470 pounds-feet. It would be a thrilling experience.

The Rubicon 392 is the fastest Wrangler. It accelerates from 0-60 mph in 6.0 seconds. It can tow only 3,500 pounds. Gas-powered Gladiators can tow 7,700 lbs.

The 4xe is not expected to be any weaker than a gas-powered version, but it may have a stronger hybrid system. The Gladiator, meanwhile, is bigger and heavier than a Wrangler. Rumors suggest the Jeep Grand Wagoneer 4xe may also be coming.

There may be a hybrid version of the Hurricane engine. The inline-six engine produces 500 horsepower and 510 pounds-feet of torque.

The Gladiator currently has a 3.6-liter engine that produces 285 horsepower and 260 pounds-feet of torque. The 3.0-liter diesel engine is available with 260 horsepower and 442 pounds-feet of torque.

Official fuel economy numbers for the Jeep Gladiator (4xe) 2024 have not been announced. The Jeep Wrangler 4xe has an estimated electric range of up to 21 miles per charge, according to the EPA. The Jeep Wrangler 4xe can go up to 370 miles per tank and gets 49 MPGe.

The 2024 Jeep Gladiator 4xe Plug-in Hybrid could use a bit more range. Gas-powered models get an EPA-estimated 17 mpg city and 22 mpg highway. The diesel engine can provide up to 22mpg in city traffic and up to 28mpg on highways.

It takes two hours for a level II charger to fully charge. It can take 12 hours to charge with a Level 1 charger. Wrangler’s 4xe is equipped with a level 1 standard charging cable.

We may soon learn more about a possible 2024 Jeep Gladiator. Keep checking back to get the latest information.

The Jeep Gladiator will likely share the Jeep Wrangler’s 4xe powertrain under the hood. The 2024 Jeep Gladiator 4xe, if this is true, will feature dual electric motors paired with a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine capable of producing 375 horsepower. It is not uncommon for car manufacturers to borrow engines, but it may be different in this case. The Gladiator, which is much heavier than a Wrangler, might need a stronger engine. It is possible that a hybrid version of the Hurricane engine will be available, but this should not be taken as gospel.

It’s possible that the Jeep Gladiator 2024 will also share the battery. Wrangler’s 4xe battery can deliver 49MPGe and travel 21 miles on pure electric power. The Gladiator can borrow the same or a larger capacity battery to make up for its weight.

Release Date

In a matter of weeks, we could be seeing the Jeep Gladiator for the very first time. Easter Jeep Safari takes place over a nine-day period from the 1st of April to the 9th. This is the ideal time to test new models and concepts.

Some of the rides can even last all day. We have some teaser pictures to get Jeepers even more excited. We are excited by an image that could show the Jeep Gladiator 4xe.

The image that appears to show the Gladiator Rubicon is one of them. The vertical rear window is visible, as well as the beginning of the truck’s bed. The Jeep badges and tube doors are highlighted in light blue.

The 4xe model is distinguished from its regular counterparts by its light blue color. This is also the first Gladiator4xe hint in quite some time. We hope that this is not another delay.
