In a recent LinkedIn post, Jeep® CEO Antonio Filosa unveiled an electrifying update for Jeep enthusiasts: the introduction of the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) Gladiator 4xe in 2025. Filosa’s announcement not only solidifies Jeep’s commitment to expanding its electrified vehicle lineup but also reflects the brand’s dedication to offering customers more choices.

“Next year, we’ll extend that freedom of choice even further with a Gladiator 4xe option (colors to be announced) that will join the No. 1 and No. 2 best-selling plug-in hybrids in the U.S, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe and the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe,” Filosa shared in his LinkedIn post.

This revelation comes in the wake of last year’s United Auto Workers (UAW) contract agreement, which hinted at the arrival of the Gladiator 4xe in 2025. With this official announcement, Jeep enthusiasts can now eagerly anticipate the electrified version of the iconic pickup truck.

While specific details about the Gladiator 4xe are yet to be revealed, it’s expected to feature a powertrain upgrade compared to its gasoline-powered counterpart. Drawing inspiration from the Wrangler Unlimited 4xe, which boasts a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four-cylinder engine integrated with two electric motors and a 400-volt battery pack, the Gladiator 4xe promises to deliver both efficiency and performance.

Jeep’s electrified offerings have already garnered praise for their impressive performance and eco-friendly credentials. With the Wrangler 4xe serving as a testament to the brand’s commitment to innovation, the Gladiator 4xe is poised to continue this legacy, offering customers a compelling blend of capability and sustainability.

Production of the Gladiator 4xe will more than likely commence in the third quarter of 2025, ushering in a new era of electrified adventure for Jeep enthusiasts. As the brand continues to push the boundaries of off-road performance and sustainability, the Gladiator 4xe represents a bold step forward, promising an exhilarating driving experience both on and off the road.
