Higher levels of articulation help keep all four tires on the ground to help ensure they remain stable and engaged.


Traction is key when off-roading so that every wheel works to drive the truck forward. Jeep® Brand 4x4 systems help to ensure the right tire has traction when it's needed.



Help protect the sill of your cab with wheel-to-wheel steel rock rails. Plus, steel rock rails behind the rear wheels help to guard the box so you can traverse aggressive terrain without worry.


Engaging the Segment-Exclusive sway bar disconnect results in a 30% increase in front wheel articulation.

What engines power the Gladiator?

In the 2021 model year, the Gladiator gets the benefit of two different engine options. The first engine that we are starting with, which comes with a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic, is a 3.6-liter V6. This engine can pump out as much as 260 pound-feet of torque and up to 285 horsepower. The other engine in this lineup is all new to the Gladiator! This engine is a turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel-powered V6, which outputs around 442 pound-feet of torque and up to 260 horsepower. Paired to this engine is an eight-speed automatic transmission. Every model, no matter the engine, also comes with four-wheel drive, and a five-foot cargo bed. This means that when it comes to fun and capabilities, the Gladiator is heads and shoulders above the competition.

Can you tell me about the trim lineup?

There are four trims that you are able to choose from with the 2021 Gladiator. The trim that we are focusing on first is the base model, Sport. This trim includes removable doors, a folding soft top, cruise control, one USB port, voice control capability, a fold-down front windshield, crank windows, an eight-speaker audio system, manually adjustable tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and a five-inch central display. Another trim we recommend considering is Overland, which adds power door and tailgate locks, automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, automatic headlights, a seven-inch central display, two USB ports, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay. For something with a bit of extra off-roading edge, get the Mojave! This trim includes a reinforced frame, a 1-inch lift for the front suspension, Fox internal bypass shock absorbers, and a unique transfer case.

What safety features are available?

Throughout the Gladiator it's easy to see why people love it so much for outdoor adventuring. However, we want to make it clear that this is a vehicle that can be trusted, whether on or off the pavement. That is because safety is a huge priority here. You'll be able to find safety features like rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, collision warning plus, and rear cross-traffic alert. That doesn't even touch on the adaptive cruise control!
