2021 Jeep Gladiator Pickup Truck Adds Texas-Only Texas Trail Trim

  • The 2021 Jeep Gladiator lineup has added a new trim level called the Texas Trail that’s only sold in Texas.
  • Along with unique exterior decals and special interior accents, the Texas Trail features gloss-black 17-inch wheels and 32-inch mud-terrain tires.
  • The Gladiator Texas Trail is currently on sale at Texas Jeep dealerships.

    Texas now has its own version of the 2021 Jeep Gladiator pickup truck: the new Texas Trail model, which will be exclusively sold in the Lone Star State with a starting price of $41,930.

    For anyone wondering why the Gladiator lineup doesn’t offer a Delaware or Idaho special edition, Jeep says the Texas Trail model was created to celebrate the largest truck market in America, and that happens to be in the country’s second-largest state.

    Based on the Sport S trim, the Texas Trail is equipped with gloss-black 17-inch rims shod with 32-inch mud-terrain tires and the Trailer

    • Four new and three previously seen concepts will take to the trials in Utah next weekend for the annual Easter Jeep Safari.
    • New this year are the all-electric Magneto, the classic-inspired Jeepster Beach, the rock-ready Jeep Red Bare Gladiator Rubicon, and the eye-catching Jeep Orange Peelz.
    • Three concepts from 2020 will also be part of the Safari for the first time: the Gladiator Farout, the Wrangler Rubicon 392, and the Gladiator Top Dog.

      Jeep is rolling into spring with a bevy of concept vehicles for the Easter Jeep Safari. The annual brand celebration will take place in Moab, Utah, starting March 27 and running through April 4. The four new concepts Jeep unveiled for the event this year don’t correspond directly to any production models, but there are a few hints about what’s on the horizon.

      470-HP Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Launch Edition Costs $75K

      • The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is arriving in the spring as a fully loaded launch edition model.
      • It’ll start at $74,995 and includes a hood scoop, body-colored fenders and hardtop, leather seats, and lots of standard equipment.
      • The Wrangler Rubicon 392 is powered by a 470-hp V-8, and it’s only available as a four-door model.

        The V-8–powered Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 will go on sale by the end of the spring, initially available as a fully loaded launch edition (pictured above). This 470-hp version of the Wrangler is only available with four doors, and the launch edition will start at $74,995. Cheaper models should follow soon after. (If you were wondering, Ford said that the 2021 Ford Bronco, the Wrangler’s new competitor, won’t offer a V-8.)

        The Wrangler Rubicon 392 sits 2.0 inches taller than the standard Rubicon, and the launch edition is equipped with a hood scoop, body-colored

        Jeep Wrangler Half-Door Option Available to Order, Starts at $2350

        • If you’re a Jeep Wrangler shopper and you want the openness of a half-door, with a lower opening and removable windows, it’s time to head over to the 2021 Wrangler configurator.
        • The cost for the half doors depends on how many you need (two or four) as well as whether you choose the base or premium upper half. Not all paint colors are available with the half door, either.
        • The Dual-Door Group option has been available to order since the fall, but deliveries are just now starting, as Jeep forum users are quick to point out.

          If you’re shopping for a 2021 Jeep Wrangler, you can now pay more to get less. Less door, anyway, which some people think means more fun.

          Jeep has added half doors to the configurator for the new Jeep Wrangler JL. True to form, Jeep has kept the names for these options as byzantine

          • Jeep has issued a recall for 42,887 of its vehicles, including the 2018 to 2021 Wrangler and 2020–2021 Gladiator with manual transmissions.
          • The clutch pressure plate in these vehicles can overheat and fracture, leading to an increased risk of fire.
          • Jeep said that the recall will be remedied through a software update.

            Jeep has issued a recall for 42,887 2018–2021 Wrangler and 2020–2021 Gladiator vehicles with manual transmissions over a pressure clutch plate problem. The clutch pressure plate, which transfers power to the clutch, can overheat as a result of friction and then fracture, ultimately leading to the possibility of the transmission case cracking and expelling heated debris. This could cause fire.

            Jeep said in a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that this isn’t the result of a faulty part. Rather, it’s a design issue and will be remedied with updated

              In the mid-1980s, then Chrysler chairman Lee Iacocca approached Bruce Springsteen and offered him a large pile of money in exchange for the use of “Born in the U.S.A.” in a Chrysler ad. Iacocca kept his money and Springsteen kept his song.

              More than 30 years later, in 2018, Olivier François, then chief marketing officer of Fiat Chrysler, told Ad Age that he
