The Jeep Wrangler has famously been a very colorful vehicle and that doesn’t seem like it is going to change with the Gladiator. Keeping in touch with its Wrangler roots, the Gladiator has plenty of vibrant color options, some of which were offered on the JL Wrangler.
Here are some of the top Jeep Gladiator colors as decided by you, Jeep Gladiator fans. The following paint colors were the most frequently praised on forums and comment sections from around the web. While there are only a few colors available now (10 colors to be exact), that doesn’t mean that they aren’t special. As more and more colors are released for the JT, this list will be changed to reflect that.
Hyrdo Blue is one of those colors that really has it all. It looks fun, professional, and rugged. A Hydro Blue-colored Jeep Gladiator looks just as home on the trails as it does on the highway. Additionally, the pearl-coat paint type gives this color a mesmerizing sheen that has the intense hue of matte paint with the reflectiveness of metallic paint.
Here’s another classic Wrangler color that makes a great appearance on the Jeep Gladiator. Firecracker Red is a classic Wrangler color, and it will continue to look amazing on the Gladiator, especially with the doors and roof removed. While the Gladiator isn't going to be an especially fast vehicle, this paint color can at least make you feel like you are setting land speed records.
Although this color does scream Halloween (or even Thanksgiving), it works wonderfully on a Gladiator all year round. Compared to the other colors, Punk’n Orange is the one that stands out the most. In a sense, this is a very “Jeep” color, as it’s not a shade that you are likely to find on many other vehicles.
Sure, silver is a very common car color. That being said, silver on a car is often just a more glorified gray. This one, however, is true to its name. A Billet Silver Gladiator will literally and figuratively shine wherever you take it. Be sure to bring some sunglasses, as this color might make your Gladiator a little too bright on a sunny day.
Part of the way to appreciate this color Gladiator is imagining it covered in mud and dust. While this shade is more subdued when compared to the other Gladiator paint colors, it truly highlights the ruggedness of this Jeep pickup. One can imagine a Gobi-sporting Gladiator running the Baja 1000, scaling the steepest rocks at Moab, or even slinging mud a mile high. The simplicity of this color is quite fitting for a Jeep of any sorts.
This all being said, there isn't really a wrong color for a Gladiator. The typical Wrangler design tropes shine through on the Gladiator pickup, and at the end of the day, it's your vehicle and it should look like you want it to.
