Which should you buy, 2021 or 2022? Those shopping lower trim levels should opt for the 2022 model’s upgraded multimedia system. Shoppers considering the Overland, Rubicon or Mojave trims can save substantially with a 2021 model if the built-in navigation and largest touchscreen aren’t necessary. All remaining trims carry over unchanged and offer a better value for 2021.
Introduced for the 2020 model year, the Gladiator blends Jeep’s off-road resume with the utility of a cargo bed for a unique offering among mid-size pickup trucks. The pickup enters its third year largely unchanged, with a handful of tech upgrades on select models and a condensed list of available trims. What does change is the 2022 Gladiator’s price tag, which increases anywhere from a few hundred bucks to more than $2,000 depending on the trim.
