First, Car and Driver says the best 2023 Jeep Gladiator trim is the Sport S model. Starting at $43,970, this is one of the most affordable trims in the Gladiator lineup. The midsize truck comes with a 3.6-liter V6 engine in its most basic forms, so power is always present. At 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, the Sport S model is nothing to scoff at.

C/D said the following about the Gladiator Sport S: “We think the Sport S is the perfect canvas to create our ideal Gladiator. We’d choose the all-terrain tires and anti-spin rear differential for improved traction when the blacktop ends, and we’d add the side steps to make getting in out and easier. We’d also select the three-piece hard top for its ability to quickly open the roof. Inside, we’d spec the headliner for better noise and temperature insulation and upgrade to the larger 8.4-inch touchscreen, because it adds navigation and is more sophisticated than the standard 5.0-inch unit.”

Another expert recommends a different trim, but it’s still one of the only models under $50,000. According to Edmunds, the 2023 Jeep Gladiator to buy is the Overland trim. “We think the Overland provides the best combination of comfort and tech features at a reasonable price for most people. Drivers and passengers alike will appreciate the upgraded touchscreen, stereo and climate control over the base model,” Edmunds said.

Just like the Sport S, the Gladiator Overland trim is more affordable than many in the lineup. It starts at $48,375 and comes with many excellent standard features. For example, 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, rear privacy glass, power windows, power door/tailgate locks, heated power mirrors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, keyless entry, a nine-speaker Alpine audio system, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, navigation, rear USB ports, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Additionally, the Overland trim unlocks access to the High Altitude package.

Experts only recommend Gladiator trims under $50,000

In conclusion, the best 2023 Jeep Gladiator trims are the more affordable options. With many trims in the lineup, it can be difficult to choose one. Upper-trim models like the Mojave and Rubicon have a lot to offer. However, customers looking to get the most bang for their buck should avoid buying these expensive models. Exceeding $50,000 makes the Gladiator much more costly than the excellent Sport S or Overland trims. Whichever version you prefer, you can’t go wrong with the expert-recommended 2023 Jeep Gladiator trims for under $50,000.
