What is the Payload Capacity of the 2023 Jeep Gladiator?

Although maximum tow ratings are the most often talked about aspects of a vehicle’s capability, another metric that shouldn’t be overlooked is its payload capacity. Payload refers to the maximum amount of weight that a vehicle can carry. In the Gladiator’s case, its payload rating refers to the maximum amount of weight that can be put on its rear cargo bed. Knowing their target demographic, Jeep engineers developed the 2023 Gladiator to have an impressive maximum payload capacity. No matter which engine and transmission combination you opt for, all Gladiator models are rated to have a maximum payload capacity of up to 775 kgs or 1,710 lbs!
