Year Event
Jeep releases a facelifted Cherokee (KL) that wears less-polarizing front and rear facias. The interior features slightly improved cargo space and an upgraded navigation system.
Jeep releases the Gladiator pickup truck. Sharing many design cues with the Wrangler (JL), the Gladiator can carry 1600lbs of payload and tow up to 7650lbs. The truck features seating for five, a 5' long bed, a removable top, and an available forward-facing camera for improved off road visibility.
Jeep releases the Gladiator Mojave. This "Desert Rated" trim level is specially tuned for high-speed maneuverability on terrain such as sand dunes. It adds a reinforced frame, axle housings, and steering knuckles to the already capable Gladiator. Jeep also announces the availability of the EcoDiesel engine on some Gladiator trim levels.
