2023 Jeep Gladiator 392 Xtreme Recon Packages Preview

2023 Jeep Gladiator 392 Xtreme Recon – Its Jeep Wrangler 392 has an amazing combination of off-road capabilities, as well as the ability to claim as the sole V8 convertible on the market with doors that can be removed. It’s an experience that’s not offered with any comparable vehicle similar to its sibling, including the Ram 1500 TRX. It’s a raucous, unmatched experience that can bring a slap smile to even the most skeptical of us. It’s a moment that should be re-created and scaled whenever feasible. However, it’s unlikely to happen. Jeep Gladiator fans that may be hoping that the Toledo-built vehicle could also get the 392 Hemi V8 upgrade will be disappointed to learn that it’s unlikely despite the loud and clear demands. This is also true with those who have the Xtreme Recon package that includes 35-inch tires right from the factory.

2023 Jeep Gladiator 392, Xtreme Recon Review

The head of Jeep Jim Morrison recently had an interview with Motor Authority at the 2022 New York auto show, and he wasn’t afraid to pull any punches in regards to the details that he shared. In relation to the 392 V8 that is hidden under the undercarriage of the Gladiator, Morrison outright stated that he’s not sure whether “we’ll ever see a 392 in the Gladiator”. According to the company’s executive Morrison, the Gladiator is just about one-third of Wrangler’s total volume. There could be additional factors in play (like the French commanding FCA and governments going fully electric, and the rise in inflation) However the Gladiator does not quite correspond to the Wrangler’s taking rate.

It’s the same with regard to the idea of a Jeep Gladiator Xtreme Recon package featuring 35-inch tires that are directly right from the factory. The difference is that Morrison said the fact that Jeep continues to offer bigger tires and wheels via The Jeep Performance Parts division. Concerning larger tires, it appears the 37-inch tire is in the works in this model of the Wrangler 4xe. Morrison said that the tires at the Wrangler 4xe in Moab during the 2022 Easter Jeep Safari were his preferred model and that when he went off-roading the vehicle, Morrison “couldn’t find a place where I couldn’t make that go.” The 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor will come with 37-inch tires however Jeep hasn’t made them available yet and has only recently did they offer 35-inch tires as part of an Xtreme Recon.

2023 Jeep Gladiator 392 Xtreme Recon Released

In keeping with the topic of 4xe’s Morrison could not confirm whether an electric hybrid plug-in Gladiator is coming, or when it will be. But, we do know Jeep is planning to add electrification to its vehicles before 2025. Therefore, it’s likely to witness the Gladiator 4xe joining Jeep’s lineup by the twenty-four model year.
