Auburn Hills, Mich.: The Jeep® brand is blazing new trails in Texas, the largest truck market in the country, by introducing the new 2021 Gladiator Texas Trail.
Based on the Gladiator Sport S trim, the Texas Trail is launching for the state of Texas and delivers a new level of personalized content for a distinct appearance combined with legendary Jeep 4×4 capability.
“The Jeep brand recognizes that Texas and America’s southwest are the center of the truck universe,” said Jim Morrison, Vice President Jeep Brand North America.
“Special editions allow us to connect with our passionate customers, and the Jeep Gladiator Texas Trail further broadens the appeal of the most capable Jeep pickup yet.”
The 2021 Jeep Gladiator Texas Trail also celebrates the addition of two Texas trails to the Jeep Badge of Honor program. The industry-exclusive Jeep Badge of Honor mobile app allows offroad enthusiasts to conquer trails and earn unique trail badges for their Jeep vehicles.
