What's New for 2023: Jeep® Gladiator

August 25, 2022 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The 2023 Jeep® Gladiator, engineered from the ground up to be the most off-road capable Jeep truck ever, builds on a rich heritage of tough, dependable trucks with an unmatched combination of rugged utility, authentic Jeep design, open-air freedom, clever functionality and versatility.

Powertrain options include a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with engine stop-start (ESS) and a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine with ESS. Equipped with a versatile box, a body-on-frame design, front and rear five-link suspension system, solid axles and electronic lockers, Gladiator is one of the few midsize trucks to offer a six-speed manual transmission in addition to its available eight-speed automatic. Gladiator is built to handle the demands of an active lifestyle while delivering an open-air driving experience in a design that is unmistakably Jeep.

A multitude of technology features, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and safety features, such as Blind-spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection, adaptive cruise control and Forward Collision Warning-Plus, enhance Gladiator’s appeal. Combining traditional Jeep attributes with strong truck credentials, the Jeep Gladiator is a unique vehicle with unsurpassed capability.

New for 2023:
  • The Jeep Gladiator Freedom special edition includes capability enhancements and unique exterior features, such as an Oscar Mike badge on the rear tailgate, LED headlamps and fog lamps, body-color fender flares, winch-capable steel front and rear bumpers, steel rock rails, black wheels and accents and an American flag decal along the side of each vehicle. Inside, the Gladiator Freedom special edition boasts leather-trimmed cloth seats and black accent stitching

They would have listed it if they did. With no changes to power train etc it should remain the same.

They got a new power train, jeep did not. Simple.

“The maximum towing capacity and payload for Colorado in 2023 are both higher than those of the present model, at 7,700 pounds and 1,684 pounds, respectively. All of it is possible because of the new powertrain choice.The 2023 model’s 2.7-liter turbo plus and 2.7-liter turbo high-output engines provide more torque and horsepower than the current 3.6-liter V-6 and 2.8-liter turbodiesel engines. The base model is available for the WT and LT, producing 237 hp and 259 lb-ft of torque. With 310 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque, the Turbo Plus is standard on the Z71 and Trail Boss but optional on the WT and LT.”

I built a 23 like my 22. There was about a $1000 difference. And no Gorilla glass.
I think the 2023 build function on Jeep.com is a work in progress. It is showing the Overland, Rubicon and Mojave models 3 piece hard top as a $0 option.

The 2023 wrangler is still a work in progress, and it's been up for months.
