For model year 2021, Jeep has added two Willys trims to its Gladiator lineup. Jeep North America boss Jim Morrison said, “The Gladiator Willys model is reminiscent of the original Jeep his line-up while offering aggressive looks and additional improved features.” Based on the Sport and Sport S trims, Willys shocks from rock rails and off-road-spec Rubicon trim feature a limited-slip differential, chunky 32-inch BFGoodrich KM2 mud-terrain tires on unique 17-inch black wheels. A blacked out grille, and the required stickers. Inside, the model picked up Gladiator’s tech group with a 7-inch infotainment screen and a convenience group. The Willis Sport cost $36,760. The only thing steeper than the Gladiator’s approach angle is its price curve, so the 2023 Willys Sport is priced at $42,880 after a destination charge of $1,795.
