Should I Buy the 2022 Jeep Gladiator?

The Jeep Gladiator is a unique entrant in the mid-size pickup truck class. The off-road Rubicon version has the rock-crawling ability of a muscled-up mountain goat, but the Gladiator’s poor straight-line tracking is a problem when driving on paved surfaces. It’s also expensive — especially uplevel trims.

Don’t buy it

Since we have had our gladiator we have not found it to live up to what we were told. First issue was a problem with the fuel tank vent causing fuel to spill out and poor gas mileage TOOK 6 months to get the problem resolved! Unacceptable! Second issue is the rear and front windshields. Our rear windshield busted out and we have no Idea how. Talking with the repair people it’s very common both are very weak because there is no frame so it breaks very easy. Third this underpowered turd cannot tow with any kind of tolerable gas mileage. Cost us a fortune to tow our small 22’ RV trailer.

What’s Not to Like

This is a.rock solid vehicle that defines “utility” better than all the rest. You have tons of ways to configure the vehicle every day. Open air roof, doors off, entire top off, pick-up truck uses, off roading, climbing, travel, snowshoeing, skiing, snow driving, trails and dirt roads, hiking, carry bed loads, trailering, ATVs, etc, etc, etc. No way to ever find it boring. Plus, the extra bonus of the culture, friendliness, the wave, jeep groups, and the way it promotes and nurtures getting outdoors and getting active. No issues. Alpine stereo is great. Nav is great. Heat is great. comfort great, carrying fun loads great, towing to 4K lbs great. No complaints.

3.0

Good and bad. Better suited to warmer climates.

Don't buy this vehicle in freezing climates. The windshield and wiper blades freeze while driving in freezing snowing conditions. The door latch mechanisms also freeze, doors are hard to stay latched. My windshield broke with a loud pop in a Wendy's parking lot. Seems the hot and cold from the icing at the bottom and the hot heat off the defroster breaks these gorilla glass windshields. Mopars refuses to.do anything under warranty even though it's an issue. The good? Great 4 wheel drive, transfer case shifter very hard to pull. The ecodiesel I got gets up to 30 mpg on highway. About 17 in town when not sitting at idle to warm up. 1st regen was at about 1500 miles.
