2023 Jeep Gladiator review
Aussies love retro 4x4s and they also love utes – so the Jeep Gladiator should be a winning combo, right?
Not quite, if you go by the sales charts. Jeep doesn’t even hold 1.0 per cent share in what is Australia’s second-largest new vehicle segment, with just 507 Gladiators registered to the end of July 31.
Part of the reason for this could be the Gladiator’s left-field approach; it’s petrol-only in a predominantly diesel-powered world, and its braked towing capacity maxes out at just over 2700kg rather than the segment benchmark of 3500kg.
