An Electric Version of the Jeep Gladiator is not Coming Before 2024

The Jeep Gladiator could be one of the last model of the brand to offer an electrified version

  • Jeep plans to have a fully electric model in each SUV segment by 2025

  • The electric models will use the same 4xe name as the current plug-in hybrid models

  • The 2024 Gladiator 4xe might only be a hybrid

A report shows that the electrified version of the Jeep Gladiator might not be coming before 2024, only a year before the company is supposed to offer a fully electric model in each of the SUV market segments.

Jeep has introduced its first plug-in hybrid powertrain in the Wrangler 4xe for 2021 and the new Grand Cherokee will receive the same treatment in 2022.

Since the Gladiator is heavily based on the Wrangler, adding a 4xe plug-in version with the same 2.0L engine and electric motors should be relatively easy, but it could have to wait until 2024.

In order to reach its goal, Jeep will have to add many new electric models to its lineup in the coming year and the Gladiator would be a great candidate due to the high popularity of electric pickup trucks that are currently being introduced by multiple automakers.

In addition, rumours say that the electrified Gladiator that should arrive in 2024 will most likely be a plug-in hybrid rather than a fully electric vehicle, perhaps using the same powertrain as the current Wrangler and Grand Cherokee 4xe.

This could mean Jeep doesn’t consider the Gladiator as an SUV, since its electrification announcement clearly mentioned a fully electric model in every SUV segment by 2025, and it wouldn’t make much sense for the company to introduce a plug-in model and then a fully electric one only a few months later to reach its objective.
