Jeep is preparing an extreme version of Mojave

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon gets a brother who can easily overcome the desert.

Historically, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon served as the undisputed “king” of Jeep off-road models, but the new Jeep Gladiator Mojave, unveiled in February this year, turned this convention upside down. Not that the Mojave Gladiator is an order of magnitude taller than Rubicon, keep in mind – it intends to do completely different things – but it certainly is at the Rubicon level, giving the new Gladiator pickup a neat appearance that Wrangler’s appearance cannot match.

But the situation will change relatively soon, because the Jeep Wrangler Mojave is under development – with the same Desert-Rated icon and corresponding characteristics. According to foreign media reports, the new Jeep Wrangler Mojave and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Mojave will be launched by model year 2021 with features such as the same 2.5-inch Fox Gladiator Mojave shock absorbers with external tanks, durable cast-iron steering knuckles, and a reinforced frame.

Gladiator Mojave is expected to receive more powerful bridges and larger 33-inch all-terrain tires. The new Gladiator Mojave is expected to borrow a sculpted hood with a wide bucket and more aggressive wing arches typical of Mojave. Inside there will be plenty of room for the large front seats of the Gladiator Mojave with orange accents. It is not yet known when the FCA will decide to boast a new Jeep Wrangler Mojave. The debut of the new Jeep Easter Safari has already been canceled due to coronavirus. Moreover, we do not know whether the model was ready on time.

This summer, FCA could show off the model at an annual press event called “What’s New,” but it is rumored that it was at that meeting that the company plans to introduce the new Ram 1500 Rebel TRX. Most likely, the FCA will open the new Jeep Wrangler Mojave closer to the end of the year.
