The Gladiator Texas Trail features unique Texas Trail hood and tailgate decals -- that include the year 1836 as a nod to the Texas Declaration of Independence.

Jeep says these features, combined with the Jeep Command-Trac 4x4 part-time, two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio, enhance the Gladiator Texas Trail�s off-road capability.
The Sport S-based Gladiator Texas Trail also includes standard side steps, Trailer Tow Group, black hardtop, black leather seats embossed with the Texas Trail graphic and Technology Group with 7-inch radio and Convenience Group.
