Do you love the Jeep Wrangler but wish it had a cargo bed? If so, check out the 2021 Jeep Gladiator. This is Jeep’s first vehicle with a cargo bed since the 1990s, and it’s so versatile that it’s hard to find a challenge it can’t meet. From off-roading adventures to towing massive loads, it has you covered. Plus, it looks great while tackling each challenge. Because the Gladiator is still relatively new, you likely have some questions. Let’s dig in, so you’ll understand why people love the Gladiator.
All the Power You Need for the Roads and the Trails
When people drive the Jeep Gladiator, they can help but notice the power. That’s because this Jeep packs a powerful engine under the hood. The standard 3.6-liter V6 is no slouch, producing 285 horsepower, along with 260 pound-feet of torque. The six-speed manual transmission that’s paired with this engine provides full control during off-roading adventures. However, the Gladiator can handle those complicated shifts for you if you choose the optional eight-speed automatic transmission.
A New Engine Option
Jeep also added another engine to the lineup this year. Now, you can get the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine if you prefer. This engine produces a whopping 442 pound-feet of torque, which is the best-in-class. And while it’s a mighty beast, it still manages to have a fuel economy rating that reaches 28 mpg on the highway. It’s hard to understand how something so powerful can also be fuel-efficient, but Jeep managed to make it happen.
Get Ready for an Off-roading Adventure
The power is great, but how does the Gladiator perform on the trails? It has all the off-roading equipment and features you need for even the toughest of trails. All models have Trail Rated capability, meaning they’ve proven they can handle multiple types of terrain with ease. But what if you want to drive through the sand? That’s not a problem, either, when you get the Desert Rated Gladiator Mojave. The Mojave wears the Desert Rated badge with pride and is ready to fly through the sand any time you want.
