The Jeep® Brand began this decade by reflecting the different needs of adventure lovers, bringing back a classic and introducing future-facing technology. The momentum started in 2019 when the Jeep Brand re-introduced the Gladiator pickup and entered the new decade with a bang by launching the first-ever three-row Grand Cherokee, the incredibly powerful Wrangler Rubicon 392 and a future-facing plug-in hybrid electric vehicle—the all-new Wrangler 4xe.
AN EXTENSION OF THE JOURNEY
To start the 2020s, the Jeep® Brand has made a huge impact on the SUV and pickup truck markets by reintroducing the Gladiator after 32 years and releasing an available 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine for both Gladiator and Wrangler. The next year was even more of a leap with the launch of the all-new Grand Cherokee L with third-row seating and the releases of the powerful Wrangler Rubicon 392 and the Wrangler 4xe. A new journey has just begun.
ROARING INTO THE 20s
2020-PRESENT JEEP® GLADIATOR (JT)
The Gladiator broke new ground in the midsize pickup truck class in 2020 with legendary off-road capability. Featuring an available forward-facing TrailCam Off-Road Camera, the Jeep® Brand’s first-ever Trail Rated® truck made navigating tough terrain easy with helpful gridlines that displayed a path for the front tires to follow.
Off-road trails weren’t enough for the Brand in 2020. Soon, the all-new Gladiator Mojave took unmistakable Jeep® Brand design deep into the dunes with its first-ever Desert Rated vehicle. Adding a truck that could handle the intense heat and invasive sand of the desert meant there weren’t many places in the world the Gladiator couldn’t play.
The Gladiator interior was built to make adventure happen. With precision-crafted details and high-quality materials, it offered comfort that invited drivers to take the scenic route wherever they traveled. Plus, it came equipped with a suite of intuitive technology features, helmed by an advanced Uconnect® system and an available 8.4-inch touchscreen.
Uncharted territory never felt this safe and secure thanks to a collection of over 80 standard and available safety and security features. Whether traversing open highways or remote off-road trails, the 2020 Gladiator offered active and passive technology that put drivers in ultimate control of their journey–no matter the road.
2021-PRESENT JEEP® WRANGLER RUBICON 392 (JL)
Wrangler Rubicon 392 has 4x4 Trail Rated® capability with an Electronic Sway Bar Disconnect feature that allows for massive articulation of the front tires and enables steep climbs with a Ramp Travel Index of 730. Enjoy incredible maneuverability thanks to Fox 2.0 monotube shocks and Dana® 44 wide track axles with electronic lockers and 33-inch tires.
The exterior is appropriately aggressive and impressively functional. Engineered from the ground up, the 33-inch mud-terrain tires wrap around custom 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels. A Hydro-Guide Air Induction System, Dual Mode Exhaust and available half doors reveal on sight that Wrangler Rubicon 392 is not to be messed with.
Make no mistake. Power doesn't mean sacrificing comfort, as proven by the black leather-trimmed seats with premium seat bolsters, embroidered "392" logo and bronze interior stitching. The interior amenities are rounded out by an 8.4-inch Uconnect® touchscreen with Navigation, premium audio and a 7-inch full-color instrument cluster. As well, the steering wheel boasts mounted paddle shifters to remind you that playtime can be any time.
2021-PRESENT JEEP® WRANGLER 4xe (JL)
Feel the rush of adventure. The 4xe is powered by a 2.0L I4 DOHC direct-injection Turbo PHEV and accelerates from 0-60 mph in just 6 seconds. This plug-in hybrid turbocharged engine sports impressive 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of instant torque for off-road and on-road running. The vehicle also gives you 49 MPGe and total driving range of 370 miles. E-Selec driving modes (Electric, eSave and Hybrid) offer whole new levels of versatility to drivers.
For the first time ever, the Grand Cherokee has three rows of seating. Now, there’s even more room for adventure in the refined interior that can be configured to seat six or seven passengers. The available Summit Reserve trim level features premium hand-wrapped, quilted Palermo leather along with ventilated front and second-row seats. Plus, the second-row “tip and slide” bucket seats and third-row seats offer generous leg room for passengers and ingress/egress exterior side step options.
Capability is never in question thanks to three available 4x4 systems that power the vehicle’s all-weather performance. The available Quadra-Lift® Suspension System and Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System with five modes enable maximum off-roading power. Finally, the vehicle’s hefty maximum towing capacity of up to 7,200 pounds makes all kinds of adventures possible for this all-new new full-size SUV.
Experience a profound soundtrack to your journey thanks to an available state-of-the-art system, created by the renowned luxury home audio company McIntosh®, that includes 19 custom-designed speakers. At the literal center of this tech-laden cabin is a new available 10.1-inch touchscreen with a Uconnect® 5 NAV system that features your radio, Navigation and a new Interior Monitoring Camera with HD image quality, split view and seat zoom display. That’s also where you can view a display from the ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera when moving in reverse—making backing up a breeze. In addition, the Digital Rearview Mirror displays real-time video from a rear-facing camera.
This 2021 redesign is an eyeful with a new sculpted exterior and tapered roof for aerodynamic performance. The full-size SUV also sports a front silhouette inspired by historic full-size luxury Jeep® Brand vehicles. Expansive sight lines with updated linear design and expansive glass and a full suite of premium LED lighting are new design features that are both adaptive and appealing.
