2021 Jeep Gladiator: 3.6 L Pentastar V6
The standard motor for the new Gladiator is a 3.6-litre V6 unit from Pentastar. It can be paired with either an 8-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual transmission, and it always comes with the Command-Trac part-time shift-on-the-fly 4x4 system. This combination allows you to traverse over rugged terrain with no concern. Though it generates 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, this engine still ensures that you can enjoy a strong fuel economy rating of 10.8 L/100 km (26 mpg) in the city and 8.5 L/100 km (33 mpg) on the highway.
2021 Jeep Gladiator: 3.0 L EcoDiesel V6
Also available on the Gladiator is the 3.0-litre Ecodiesel V6. This motor is partnered with a smooth 8-speed automatic transmission from TorqueFlite and the same precise drivetrain. Delivering 260 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque, it is best for those who spend a lot of time in the wild, yielding a maximum towing capacity of 2,041 kg (4,500 lbs); and it keeps adventurers away from the pump with its efficiency output of 14.3 L/100 km (20 mpg) in the city and 10.4 L/100 km (27 mpg) on the highway.
2021 Jeep Gladiator: Off-Roading
No matter which powertrain you choose, the 2021 Jeep Gladiator is a champion off the beaten path. Every model comes with Dana axles in the front and back - M210 and M220, respectively - to assure deft manoeuvring. Next, the dual stabilizer bars, along with the heavy-duty shock absorbers, provide you with a more comfortable ride experience: helping to eliminate friction impacts and promote smooth turns. Finally, underbody skid plates have been installed to protect the transfer case and fuel tank from potential damage on the trails.
2021 Jeep Gladiator: Towing
Despite its compact classification, the 2021 Jeep Gladiator will still prove a robust option for those needing to take along off-road gear. A trio of tow hooks have been put into place - two on the back and one on the front - to enable easy hauling. Meanwhile, the Class II hitch receiver allows you to effortlessly accommodate light-duty demands; and, finally, the 4- and 7-pin wiring harness ensures that electricity can flow freely to the trailer's lighting and braking systems: keeping your attachments powered while traveling the trails.
