Jeep Saying FarOut Farewell to Gladiator Diesel

EcoDiesel is idling into the sunset

  • EcoDiesel left behind, 4xe expected to replace it

  • FarOut adds decals and features

After just three short years, Jeep is dropping the EcoDiesel from the Gladiator pickup. In typical Jeep style, the EcoDiesel Gladiator is being sent off with a special edition.

The Jeep Gladiator EcoDiesel showed up in 2021, with the engine giving Jeep’s truck a whopping 442 lb-ft of torque. With the eight-speed automatic, it also gave the Jeep a driving range of more than 800 km, which was seriously impressive. But now more and more Jeep Wrangler buyers are picking the even more frugal 4xe plug-in hybrid (which isn’t yet offered on the Gladiator) and the Ram 1500 has already dropped its version of the EcoDiesel. So the engine was on borrowed time.

To say farewell to its rumbly torquey friend, Jeep is launching the FarOut edition, limited to just 1,000 copies.

FarOut is based on the 2023 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon, and it comes with that truck’s Dana 44 axles, 3.73 ratio, and 4.0:1 Rock-Trac low-range transfer case. The $12,100 package will also add a Diesel hood graphic and 3.0D tailgate badge, black fender stickers, and a steel front bumper. 17-inch black wheels wear 33-inch mud tires, the fender flares are body colour, and the truck gets a spray-in bedliner, LED lighting group, and black leather with red stitching.

The 2023 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon FarOut edition starts from $69,995 in the U.S. and will be available to order until the end of September. Deliveries start in the third quarter of this year. So get this oil burner while it’s still around.
