If you love the go-anywhere, do-anything spirit of the iconic Jeep Wrangler but also like the practical utility that comes with owning a pickup truck, let the team at Stivers Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram introduce you to the 2023 Jeep Gladiator. We are the premier Jeep dealership serving Montgomery Birmingham Auburn Prattville and the neighboring communities and are thrilled with how popular the Gladiator has become in our region in just a few short years. Another great selling point of the Gladiator is how customizable it is, and those choices begin with three core options: Sport, Overland, and Rubicon.
The 2023 Jeep Gladiator is a pickup truck with a crew cab, four doors, and a 5-foot bed. The Gladiator is also like the Wrangler in that you can remove the doors and the top. There are various hard and soft tops available, and you can choose a tonneau cover that matches your top as well. The Sport has 17-inch steel wheels and a damped tailgate. The Overland adds 18-inch alloy wheels and heated, power mirrors. The Rubicon reverts to smaller wheels for off-road purposes and off-road-oriented fenders.
Unlike the Wrangler that is available in two distinct body configurations, the 2023 Jeep Gladiator is available in only one, and it seats up to five. Headroom is 42.8 inches in both rows. Front legroom is 41.2 inches. Second-row legroom is 38.3 inches, and the dedicated cargo area is 35.5 cubic feet. Another notable difference between the Gladiator and Wrangler is that the base model here comes with air conditioning. It also comes with a center touch screen and an eight-speaker audio system. With the Overland, you get dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a nine-speaker Alpine sound system, and the Rubicon upgrades the upholstery to a premium material.
Trailer sway damping is standard equipment. Class IV trailering equipment is optional, and that upgrade lets the Gladiator tow up to 4,500 pounds. The Rubicon is the most mechanically diverse model as it adds numerous enhancements for off-roading, including locking front and rear differentials and a more sophisticated suspension system. There is also the Mojave, which is similar to the Rubicon but designed for use in the desert and thus optimized for operating at higher speeds.
The 2023 Jeep Gladiator near Montgomery is designed as a four-wheel-drive vehicle and this is the only drive layout available through Stivers Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. A six-speed manual transmission is standard across the board as well, and an eight-speed automatic is optional with all trim levels. The standard engine is a 3.6-liter V6 that makes 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. You also have the option of a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 that makes 260 hp and 442 lb.-ft.
A 7-inch touch screen is standard with the base 2023 Jeep Gladiator near Montgomery along with a rearview camera system. Automatic headlamps become standard with the Overland.
