Why go for the 2024 facelift when you can get $17,000 off a 2023 model?
Jeep has introduced a lightly refreshed Gladiator for MY2024. Subtle styling updates, new technology, and enhanced safety features are some big-ticket changes that have kept the rugged truck appealing for the new model year. But the new model's arrival means some dealerships are desperate to get rid of existing 2023 inventory, with CarsDirect reporting some incredible discounts to be had.
Several examples at a West Covina, California dealership can be had for thousands of dollars off list price. One 2023 Sport 4x4 (originally priced at $52,505) shows an incredible dealer discount of $12,283, which represents a 23% reduction in price. The publication notes an additional 10% off MSRP Retail Bonus of $5,205. This brings the price down even further to just $34,971.
When CarBuzz searched for the listing, we saw only the initial dealer discount available for this model. It's worth noting that several other Gladiators were also offered with appealing deals.
Another dealership we looked at in New York also has dealer discounts (albeit as lucrative) and select inventory bonuses for certain vehicles. It's the same story in Miami, where we found a dealer offering up to $6,500 off the list price of certain '23 Gladiator models.
As per CarsDirect, there are reportedly 18,000 2023 Gladiators in dealer stock, and we're guessing retailers are desperate to get them off lots and onto driveways. To help, Jeep implemented the aforementioned 10% off MSRP deal. Just over a week ago, the automaker launched an even better 15% off deal for Gladiator Sport models in California.
Couple this with the appealing dealer incentives and discounts, and you could get yourself a practically new Gladiator for an absolute steal. And these aren't stripped-out, base models either. The 2023 Sport 4x4 in West Covina has more than $12,000 in optional extras.
If you're in the market for a new Gladiator, these deals may be too good to ignore. Waiting for the new Gladiator with its myriad improvements doesn't seem so appealing now that these excellent discounts exist. If you're looking for a fun weekend truck to explore and go camping, the MY2023 Gladiator will fit the bill nicely.
But you'll have to fork over for the new model if you want the best technology and luxury. Revisions for 2024 include a revised radiator grille, a feature-rich 12.3-inch infotainment system with Uconnect 5, and enhanced safety. All trim levels are now equipped with first- and second-row side curtain airbags, as well as second-row outboard seat belts with load limiters and pre-tensioners.
Aside from two new trim levels (Rubicon X and Mojave X), Jeep has also introduced a unique upfit off-road package from AEV. Pricing for the MY2024 Gladiator is yet to be released.
