The limited-edition package marks the end of the Gladiator EcoDiesel.

If you consider yourself a fan of Jeep’s 3.0-liter V-6 EcoDiesel engine then we have some good news and bad news for you. The good news the new 2023 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon FarOut package is meant as a celebration of the EcoDiesel and will be available soon. The bad news is that the FarOut package also marks the end of the EcoDiesel Gladiator (just like the Wrangler FarOut before it did so for the SUV).

When we tested the Jeep Gladiator EcoDiesel in 2021, we found that when it came to towing, the Gladiator didn’t perform so well. Towing aside, we appreciated the truck’s speed, torque, and fuel economy (even if we felt the asking price was a bit on the high side). The fact is that the Gladiator is a very popular model among Jeep enthusiasts, towing concerns aside, and the EcoDiesel certainly has its fans.

So, why is Jeep getting rid of it? “As the Jeep brand continues its drive to electrification, we are phasing out EcoDiesel technology,” said Jim Morrison, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. There you have it; in a world where electrification is the future, and torquey EV motors exist, a diesel truck just doesn’t seem to fit into Jeep’s plans.

That being said, Jeep is making sure the EcoDiesel Gladiator doesn’t fade away unceremoniously. The 2023 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon FarOut comes with a small treasure trove of standard equipment that will certainly make the limited-edition model sought after by aficionados in the not too distant future. Here’s everything included in the Gladiator Rubicon FarOut package:

  • “Diesel 3.0L” hood graphic
  • Exclusive “3.0 D” tailgate badge
  • “FarOut” tailgate badge
  • Black fender decals
  • 17-inch low-gloss black polished aluminum wheels
  • 33-inch mud-terrain tires
  • Steel front bumper
  • Body-color fender flares
  • Satin black grille
  • Mopar spray-in bedliner
  • LED Lighting Group
  • Black leather seats with red accents
  • Black leather-wrapped dash panels with red accent stitching
  • Cold Weather Group
  • Trailer-Tow and Heavy-Duty Electrical Group
  • Safety Group
  • All-weather floor mats

The 2023 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon FarOut edition will set you back $71,790 which includes $12,000 for the FarOut package. Though, Jeep says it is only producing 1,000 FarOut Edition Gladiators so you’ll probably wind up spending significantly more than MSRP considering it’s rarity.
