2023 Jeep Gladiator – Engine, Transmission, and Performance in Kaslo

April 27,2023

The Jeep Gladiator is equipped with a 3.6-liter V-6 engine that generates 260 pound-feet torque and 285 horsepower. It comes with a standard six-speed manual transmission, but you can also opt for an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Overland model equipped with an automatic transmission achieved a 0-60 mph acceleration time of 7.2 seconds during testing. Comparatively, its speed is slightly lower than that of its counterparts.
A Gladiator equipped with the powerful 3.0-liter V-6 diesel engine produced a robust 442 pound-feet torque and an impressive 260 horsepower. The Gladiator boasts a 19.4-inch longer wheelbase than its counterpart, the regular Wrangler. According to Jeep, this feature is designed to enhance the ride and handling of the pickup. After testing multiple models, it is evident that the driving experience is similar to that of the Wrangler. The truck’s steering may not provide optimal precision on paved roads and the ride quality may be affected on uneven surfaces.
Undoubtedly, the Gladiator’s exceptional traits are integral to its identity as a genuine pickup truck and an off-road capable machine. Off-road enthusiasts prioritize a truck’s available equipment, such as skid plates, rock-crawling axle ratios, and the capability to ford a maximum of 30 inches of water. The Gladiator’s impressive approach/departure angles and ground clearance make it a formidable vehicle for tackling even the most challenging terrain.
