For its fifth model year, Jeep at the 2023 North American International Auto Show in Detroit said it would make a few tweaks to its Gladiator midsize pickup

Jim Morrison, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America, said the new Gladiator also features a more advanced and comfortable interior with a standard 12.3-inch touchscreen and available power seats tested for water fording, more safety and technology, including standard side-curtain airbags, and a fresh exterior with a new seven-slot grille, seven new wheel designs and a windshield-integrated trail-ready antenna.

An all-new 12.3-inch touchscreen – the most advanced and largest display ever offered on Gladiator – houses the fifth-generation Uconnect 5 system and sits prominently atop the center stack, right above the new slim rectangular inboard air vent. Using full-array local dimming (FALD) backlight technology, the 12.3-inch screen delivers improved visibility, especially during open air conditions with the top and doors off. The outboard air vents retain their signature circular shape. Standard on all models is improved hands-free voice recognition, which uses new seven-microphone array technology. 

"Combine all of that with its folding windshield, three roof choices, two different door options or taking the doors off altogether, and Gladiator is the only truck in the business that can celebrate this kind of open-air freedom and still do real truck stuff," he said.

The 2024 seven-slot grille gets an updated look with black textured slots, neutral gray metallic bezels and body-color surround (gloss black slots and bezels on Willys). Slimmer both visually and literally, the new grille’s black textured vertical slots improve cooling. A new trail-ready stealth antenna integrated into the front windshield replaces the previous steel mast antenna, streamlining Gladiator’s appearance and eliminating brush or tree limb snags on the trail. 

Also new for 2024, Jeep Gladiator features seven new standard and optional wheel designs, with tire sizes ranging from 32 to 33 inches. Multiple open-air freedom options, including a new standard premium soft-top, two available hardtops (black and body color), Sunrider for Hardtop and dual-door group with half doors, mean there are dozens of different door, top and windshield combinations, so Gladiator customers can customize their off-road adventure to their specific needs. Gladiator is available in nine standout exterior colors, including: Anvil (new), Firecracker Red, Granite Crystal, Silver Zynith, High Velocity, Hydro Blue, Sarge, Bright White and black.
