One of the most awaited trucks on the market is definitively the new 2023 Jeep Gladiator Mojave. This desert-rated pickup truck comes with a unique chassis, and it can go everywhere you want. It can tackle rough terrains with ease and also go into deep water as well.
Under the hood, this pickup deploys a gas engine, which is used in almost every Jeep car, including the Jeep Wrangler. The engine consists of a 3.6-liter V6 that’s able to develop 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. However, this is not all because Jeep is also offering as an optional 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine that makes 260 horsepower and a torque of 442 lb-ft.
Unlike the original Gladiator, the new 2023 Jeep Gladiator Mojave will be different in many ways. For a start, it looks more aggressive, but it’s not as wild as the Ram Rebel TRX. Still, it features some of unique off-road gear, aggressive performance hood with a center scoop, and huge 17-inch wheels and 33-inch all-terrain tires.
As you can see, the Mojave variant is ready for some serious off-roading. On top of that, the clearance is high thanks to the lifted suspension. The Mojave, according to Jeep, has 11.6 inches of ground clearance, which is enough to tackle any type of terrains.

Just like the exterior, the interior of the 2023 Jeep Gladiator Mojave is beautiful as a desert oasis. This truck offers more premium refinements and soft-touch surfaces than the basics Gladiator.
It also includes the available steel gray leather-trimmed seating, and many advanced technological features as standard. The interior comfort is enhancing, and we like a competition-inspired steering wheel and orange accent stitching for eye-catching detail.
