In Depth Specs Review: Jeep GladiatorBy Kijiji Autos
The Jeep Gladiator, released in 2020, is the automaker's only pickup truck. Designed like an extended Jeep Wrangler, the Jeep Gladiator has a towing capacity of 4,000–7,650 pounds and a maximum payload of up to 1,700 pounds, making it one of the most capable work trucks in its class.
Here's what you need to know about the Jeep Gladiator, courtesy of Kijiji Autos:
- Body type: pickup truck
- Number of seats: 5
- Number of doors: 4
- Transmission type: Manual or automatic
- Fuel type: Gasoline
- Number of trims: 11
- Fuel consumption: 10.8 – 14.3 L/100km city/ 8.5 – 10.7 L/100km highway
Cloth seating is the standard material for this model, however, leather seating and heated front seats are available. The Jeep Gladiator seats five passengers comfortably, with lots of head- and legroom for passengers of all sizes in both rows. Driver visibility is good and driver lumbar support is standard.
Like its Jeep Wrangler sibling, the Jeep Gladiator comes with two available roof options, both of which can be removed: hard-top and soft-top. The hard-top insulates road sounds better, but is more labour-intensive to remove; the soft-top only takes a minute to remove but lets in more noise.
A rearview backup camera is a standard safety feature across all Jeep Gladiator trims. Safety packages are available for drivers who want to add advanced driver assistance technology systems, like:
- Adaptive cruise control
- Blind-spot monitoring
- Forward-collision warning
- Rear cross-traffic alert
- Parking sensors
What technology is available in the Jeep Gladiator?
Since its 2020 inception, the Jeep Gladiator has offered drivers a user-friendly infotainment system. The base model is equipped with a 5-inch touchscreen, but high-end models come with a 7-inch version. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard with the Jeep Gladiator Rubicon and Jeep Gladiator Overland. These high-end models also come with a premium surround-sound system and HD radio.
No matter which trim you look at, you'll find these standard tech features:
- USB ports
- Bluetooth connectivity
- AM/FM/Satellite radio
- Auxiliary jack
- MP3 Player
What's it like to drive the Jeep Gladiator?
A turbodiesel V6 engine was released for the 2021 model year, which is the most sensible option if you're planning on using the Jeep Gladiator for heavy-duty jobs or towing a trailer. Its 4x4 drivetrain makes off-roading look easy, but expect some stiffness when driving over rough surfaces.
The Jeep Gladiator still drives like a truck, especially around tight corners, however, its plush comfortable seating does mitigate the jostling feeling. Drivers might consider the Jeep Wrangler if off-roading is more important than towing capacity.
