Gecko joins the Jeep palette of vivid, special-run colors, which includes Chief Blue and Nacho for the 2021 model year. Available for order on Wrangler since spring 2021 (ordering closes end of August 2021), Gecko can be ordered on Gladiator now until early October 2021.
“Customization is at the core of both Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Gladiator, and new colors and equipment allow the customer customization journey to begin at the factory,” said Jim Morrison, vice president, Jeep Brand North America. “Bold colors like Gecko Green give our customers the chance to stand out on the trails, while the tough Gorilla Glass windshield will help them bring their Jeep home unscathed.”
The Gecko Green exterior paint option is available for ordering now for a limited time on all Gladiator and Wrangler models and is priced at $245 MSRP.
The factory-installed JPP windshield with Corning Gorilla Glass, priced at $95 MSRP and available on Sport S, Sahara, Overland (Gladiator), Rubicon and Mojave (Gladiator) models, uses the same chemical-strengthening technology as cell phone screens.
Jeep reports that the combination of an ultra-thin Gorilla Glass inner ply with a 52% thicker outer ply makes the windshield lightweight, durable, and up to three times more resistant to chips, cracks and fractures from stones and off-road debris.
