Here we are waiting for the Jeep Gladiator to arrive in the Philippines, while the American carmaker continues to expand the pickup model’s lineup in the US market.
This is the Jeep Gladiator Altitude, and it’s the brand’s response to consumers who prefer a slightly cleaner appearance over the aesthetic that standard units come with straight from the factory. No performance enhancements here as the truck still comes equipped with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, but if you’re a fan of blacked-out components, this should appeal to you.
The Gladiator Altitude gets a body-colored grille up front with dark gray trim, and body-colored fender flares. Its Jeep and Trail Rated badging are now black, as is its hardtop. The theme is carried over to the interior with black cloth seats, black stitching, as well as a ‘Wizard Black’ instrument panel. Capping the new appearance are 18-inch aluminum wheels finished in attractive Granite Crystal wrapped in 255/70 R18 Bridgestone Dueler all-terrain tires.
If you aren’t a fan of the white exterior you see here, the Gladiator Altitude is also available in Black, Firecracker Red, Billet Silver, Granite Crystal, Sting Gray, Hydro Blue, Gator, and Gobi. Going for this package will set you back $40,340 (around P2 million).
In case you missed it, the local launch of the Gladiator might be happening soon. Are you hoping Jeep Philippines will offer an extensive lineup for the truck here, too?
