As Stellantis begins its transition to electric vehicles, it is phasing out several EcoDiesel models including the 2023 Jeep Gladiator EcoDiesel. The very last EcoDiesel Gladiators will be limited-editions. The 2023 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon FarOut limited-editions will carry special badging and upgraded off-roading equipment. You only have a few days to get your orders in. Jeep will stop taking orders for the EcoDiesel on September 30th, 2023.
“As the Jeep brand continues its drive to electrification, we are phasing out EcoDiesel technology with the final, limited-edition Gladiator Rubicon FarOut," said Jim Morrison, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. “Limited to 1,000 vehicles for the 2023 model year, the special-edition Gladiator Rubicon FarOut further builds on the industry’s only open-air pickup truck infused with Trail Rated capability and best-in-class truck utility.”
