If you’re considering the Gladiator as your next vehicle, we’ve put together this review to show you why it will be great for you!

Jeep Gladiator Engine Performance

2021 Jeep Gladiator TowingOne of many things the Jeep Gladiator is renowned for is its ultra-powerful engines, and that recognition holds true here. There are two powertrains you’ll find under the hood of the Gladiator:

  • 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine: 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Maximum towing capacity of 7,650 pounds.
  • 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine: 260 horsepower and best-in-class 442 lb-ft of torque. Maximum towing capacity of 6,500 pounds.

So, no matter which engine you choose, you’ll get a powerful ride with the ability to tow heavy loads at the same time.


Off-Road Capability

You love Jeeps because of their ability to handle any type of terrain, which includes taking them off-road. The Jeep Gladiator doesn’t leave you hanging when it comes to enjoying off-road adventures, especially with the available segment-exclusive forward-facing TrailCam Off-Road Camera, an off-road navigation tool that shows you what’s ahead.

Thanks to the TrailCam, you can avoid and clear obstacles. You can even clean off the camera if mud gets on it thanks to an integrated washer function. If you want to further improve your time off-road, the Off-Road+ feature works wonders. With just the click of a button, you’ll be able to adjust throttle, transmission shift points, and traction control.

Never worry about damaging your Jeep when you’re going off-road, either. High-strength steel skid plates will protect many components of the Gladiator while you’re taking your adventures off-road.

Stay Safe in the Jeep Gladiator

2021 Jeep Gladiator Off RoadingSafety is paramount, and the Jeep Gladiator was designed with it in mind. Not only can this beast of a truck help keep you safe, but it also takes measures to make sure anything you’re towing stays intact as well. Available Blind Spot Monitoring will let you know if there’s a vehicle approaching in your blind spot zone, and available Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking will help prevent collisions.

Make parking a breeze with the ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System. This feature uses rear sonar sensors to determine what’s behind you when you’re trying to back into a space. As you approach an object, the system will start to beep to let you know you’re getting close to something.

For drivers about to tow cargo, the Jeep Gladiator salutes you by way of Trailer Sway Control. This feature will sense when your trailer is beginning to sway and can apply brake pressure to the wheels of the Gladiator to help put it back into place.
