What major changes are coming to the Gladiator?
The biggest change you will find when it comes to the 2021 Gladiator is the addition of an EcoDiesel engine option. This is a huge win for the engine lineup, and proves that Jeep has been listening to you, the consumer. The engine itself is a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6, which can not only get around 260 horsepower, but it can also output around 442 pound-feet of torque. Along with this engine is an eight-speed automatic transmission with over 40 individual shift maps, and engine stop-start technology. This is an engine that has gone through a number of improvements, such as an updated exhaust gas recirculation system, a new-generation water-cooled turbocharger, redesigned cylinder head intake ports, and lightweight aluminum alloy pistons.
Can you tell me about the other available engine?
Beyond offering the EcoDiesel engine in 2021, you will still find another base engine that is always reliable. You know and love this 3.6-liter V6, which can be found throughout the Jeep lineup for a reason. This engine cranks out 260 pound-feet of torque and up to 285 horsepower. Paired up with this engine is a six-speed manual transmission, although you can opt for an eight-speed automatic transmission if that suits your needs more. Beyond that, expect to get around 17 mpg in the city and around 22 mpg on the highway. You can’t go wrong with the engines offered with the 2021 Gladiator.
What are some of the available features?
While power and capability are obviously important, especially with an off-roading truck like the Gladiator, that isn’t the only thing you’ll be able to find. Jeep has equipped this machine with features that keep you and your passengers comfortable and properly entertained, no matter where you’re headed. Some of the standard features here include air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth, and a five-inch infotainment touchscreen. Some of the available features include dual-zone climate control, electronic sway bar disconnect, keyless entry, automatic headlights, Apple CarPlay, Android auto, rock rails, and power windows and door locks.
