From a reinforced frame and a locking differential to desert-tuned suspension with FOX™ shocks, the Jeep Gladiator Mojave trim will make your Baja 1000 fantasies a reality. Learn more below and visit San Antonio CDJR to take your next Jeep Gladiator out on a test drive.

2023 Jeep Gladiator Mojave: Desert Rated Upgrades

Jeep vehicles that wear the Trail Rated badge are proven performers over almost every kind of terrain, including mud, dirt, snow, rocks, untamed forest floors, and even rivers.

But what about the desert? Whether Chihuahuan or Mojave, Jeep Gladiator trucks in the Mojave trim prove their power over the conditions you’ll encounter out on the dunes, earning the first-ever Jeep Desert Rated badge.

First, high-speed terrain deviations. When you’re blasting through Baja, your suspension takes a beating. The Jeep Gladiator Mojave trim has a specially tuned suspension designed to soak up bumps, featuring 2.5-inch internal bypass FOX™ shocks to keep you comfortable and your truck stable as you hit the dunes. More impressively, these shocks come with external reservoirs to mitigate the typical suspension overheating issues caused by the hot desert sun.

And for the front suspension, an effective secondary set of shocks called hydraulic jounce bumpers prevents the jarring metal-on-metal slam if you bottom out. But desert blasts can’t even begin without grip. The coarse sand is sent flying by your tires, and this scattering effect can make getting traction a serious challenge. That’s why the Jeep Gladiator Mojave trim comes standard with 33-inch all-terrain tires and complements them with fender flares for a proper fit and increased articulation capabilities.

To stay stable at speed on side-to-side inclines, the Jeep Gladiator Mojave trim also features a 64.9-inch front and rear track – most other trims have a 62.9-inch track. Directly in front of the widened track, a beefy skid plate protects the engine and cooling system, while frame reinforcements do their duty to handle the stress of desert joyrides.

The standard, factory-equipped Jeep Gladiator Mojave lift kit raises the front end up by an inch, and a rear Tru-Lok electronic locking differential helps prevent traction loss as you put that raised ride height to work.

With standard 8.4-inch touch-screen infotainment, a nine-speaker sound system, premium cloth seat upholstery, dual-zone auto climate control, rock rails, 4×4 power, a faster 4:1 low-gear ratio, front brakes acting as a locking differential, and so much more, the Gladiator Mojave is a formidable option in our new Jeep Gladiator specials.

Jeep Gladiator Mojave Towing Capacity & Performance

The Jeep Gladiator Mojave trim comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission. However, it has a higher standard towing capacity compared to other stick-shift Gladiator trucks. Specifically, the standard Jeep Gladiator towing capacity with a six-speed manual transmission is 4,000 pounds,1 while the Gladiator Mojave has a standard towing capacity of 4,500 pounds.1

As for under-hood power, you get the venerable 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque as standard.
