You know what would really be cool? If Jeep put the 392 HEMI V8 into the Gladiator as one ‘final call’ for the Jeep lineup for their V8 engines. That would certainly be a huge hit. However, we digress in knowing that Jeep is making a move toward electrification with a recent announcement of plans to introduce the Gladiator 4xe plug-in hybrid variant in 2025. Such an addition to the lineup marks another step forward in Jeep’s commitment to embracing electric vehicle (EV) technology, following the success of models like the Wrangler 4xe and Grand Cherokee 4xe.

While specific details about the Gladiator 4xe are yet to be disclosed, it is anticipated to share its plug-in hybrid powertrain with the Wrangler variant. This setup typically includes a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, a starter generator, and an electric motor integrated into the eight-speed automatic gearbox. Together, these components deliver an impressive system output of 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, promising robust performance on and off the road.

The introduction of the Gladiator 4xe comes as Jeep phases out the EcoDiesel engine option for the pickup, further emphasizing the brand’s shift towards electrification. With the hybrid variant poised to become the most potent choice in the Gladiator lineup, it represents a significant evolution in Jeep’s vehicle offerings.

While the exact release date and price for the Gladiator 4xe remains unspecified, Jeep reaffirms its commitment to electrifying its entire lineup by 2025. As enthusiasts eagerly await more detailed information, this announcement underscores Jeep’s dedication to innovation and sustainability in the automotive industry.
