The 2021 Jeep® Gladiator is a sturdy pickup truck that is capable of the same off-road adventures as its SUV siblings. But how does it perform on the trails, and is it a reliable addition to the existing Jeep lineup?
Our dealers at Fields Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM of Sanford have all the details.
What’s Under the Hood?
Under the hood of the 2021 Jeep Gladiator is a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine, which is the same engine used for the Jeep Wrangler and the RAM 1500. This alone makes it a formidable set of wheels for handling rough terrain. The engine produces 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque, the same as the two aforementioned models.
You also have the option of upgrading to the EcoDiesel engine, which produces improved torque power starting at 1,400 rpm through 2,800 rpm. This is a huge boost, especially if you need additional rock-crawling prowess.
The roof of the 2021 Jeep Gladiator comes with two soft-tops and a plastic hard-top, which are available in different color variations. One of the soft-tops is the Premium Sunrider, which is constructed from high-quality, heavy-duty canvas. The hard-top features a three-piece design with panels that can be removed from the driver’s and front passenger’s end.
As for the rear of the truck, the architecture is virtually identical to the Jeep Wrangler with similar payload and towing capabilities, which you can enhance with the inclusion of the Max Trailer Tow package. The tow limit with this package is an impressive 7,650 pounds.
If off-roading is your thing, then aim for the Rubicon trim of the 2021 Jeep Gladiator. It comes with a disconnecting anti-roll bar, Selec-Speed Control, and the Rock-Trac 4×4 system with a 4:1 crawl ratio. This comes complete with a vented hood and rock rails.
