The Gladiator XMT (Extreme Military-Grade Truck) is the latest vehicle from the Indiana-based company. You may have heard of the last vehicle they put out – the Humvee. The Humvee was the successor to the line of Jeep vehicles and later inspired GM’s Hummer line.

Jeep and AM General are both descendants of Kaiser Jeep, so it makes sense the Gladiator XMT represents a reunion of the two. It’s reported that AM General came to Jeep with the idea to turn the Gladiator into a Light Tactical Vehicle.

Exact specifications haven’t been announced however, the concept XMTs appear to feature a combination of commercially available parts and custom military equipment. And the XMT may see military action.

“The Gladiator XMT, if pursued, would be offered worldwide but with a clear focus on providing a cost-effective solution to the U.S. military in a number of possible roles,” a spokesperson for Jeep told Fox News Autos.

Orders for the Glaxiator XMT could be filled as early as next year and the civilian version will start at $35,040.
