Jeep’s new Gobi color gives the Gladiator and Wrangler a desert feel

For anyone who is a lifelong Jeepster, there is nothing better than one Jeep, especially when it comes to the Wrangler, and the more recently reintroduced Gladiator. There’s something about owning a vehicle that can pedal very well, even if you’re not the hard off-road type.

The coolest thing about owning one of the many Jeep brand vehicles is that you can customize them, as long as you have the deep pockets to do so. Given that the Wrangler already comes with a removable roof and doors and even folding windshields, customization is the name of the game for Jeep. Since the Gladiator rides on the Jeep Wrangler chassis, the same adaptations have also been extended to Jeep’s latest pickup, which returned after a gap of many years. As said; not every customization has to cost an arm and a leg because Jeep’s new Gobi paint gives the Gladiator and Wrangler a desert feel at a nominal cost.

Keep in mind that most of these customizations are available for a limited time only, because while Jeep is happy to offer you new colors, it likes to maintain the exclusivity of them. So if you want your Jeep Wrangler or Gladiator to have a desert theme, now is the time to reserve your Gobi paint option.

Jeep’s announcement of the Gobi paint option has gone down well with most of its fans, although there were some dissenters. As one Instagram user wrote, “Wow ok… way to do this to me when I just got mine last year.”

Another also lamented, “No!! I bought my gladiator a month ago!! I would have definitely ordered this color!!”

Most fans seem to love this color, although there seemed to be quite a few calls to bring back Gator Green.

The cool thing, along with ordering the Gobi Wrangler or Gladiator in your type of trim, is the Jeep Wave customer service program, available for the entire Jeep brand, including all trims of the 2022 Jeep Gladiator and Wrangler.
